Elsewhere in the college basketball world there will be games at military bases and aircraft carriers but Michigan will open its season in Ann Arbor. The Wolverines host Slippery Rock, a school most associated with scoreboard updates at Michigan stadium, to begin the 2012-13 campaign. The Wolverines were nearly flawless in exhibition play and hope to carry that momentum into the season.

Tip off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. at Crisler Arena on BTN.com (streaming for a fee information here). Join in the discussion before, during and after the game in the comments section below.

      Just left a complaint. The cheesy template does not inspire confidence that any response is imminent.

    BTN definitely stinks. Hopefully the highlights (and 5 Key Plays???) can focus on last 10 minutes…

    I just messaged Bruce Madej on Facebook and @areid_wolverine on twitter about this live stream. TRYING to reach someone – anyone – who can notify someone in charge. Any other ideas? Anyone have Brandon’s cell number or something?

    I wanna see that image of Tim looking at the sideline reporter like “what?” when he heard 1000 career points. Good for him.
