  • Michigan should have an easier start to the conference slate. At least 1, prob 2 games, before IU and they aren’t against MSU, OSU, Wisconsin, PU, ILL

    This is more games on major national network than I remembered. This is good since I will be in Hong Kong next year and cannot get BTN there.

    That is awesome that we have so many nationally televised games this year! More exposure to the program is great.  Plus College Gameday coming to Ann Arbor and Michigan is going to get more exposure than they have in a really long time!

    I hate Big Ten schedule makers. Why do we always have to play at Illinois during the week.
