Friday before Michigan ---- Sept 17th, 2010

The Detroit Free Press say Michigan is not overlooking the Minutemen.

The Greenwich says Michigan insists it's not overlooking UMass.

The Livingston Daily says the Wolverines are wary of UMass. says the chase will be on when UMass tries to contain Denard Robinson.

They also say a bunch of UMass diehard fans are making the trip to Ann Arbor.

MassLive has three keys to beating Michigan and Denard Robinson. Kryptonite?

Ann has some material about UMass including the fact that the town manager of the town that the UMass band was giving an exhibition yesterday played for George Parks in the UMass band.

Matty Vautour says the Minutemen are preparing for a huge crowd.


Some notes on this sad morning, I was programming my DVR for the Michigan game and found none of the Dish channels were carrying the game live. The only time it was available was a replay at 1:00 am on Sunday morning. Don't program your VCR or DVD without checking actual schedule in your area.


Under the FWIW catagory. If any UMass fans are driving to the game and looking for a place to park or tailgate, I received the following in an e-mail.


I own a parking business not far from Michigan Stadium that has great tailgating spaces and is very opponent-fan-friendly. We had hundreds of UConn fans here a couple of weeks ago and they had a great time.

f you don’t mind, please spread the word to UMass fans on your blog. Our parking business website is I actually operate a lumberyard on the site but on football Saturdays we become a football parking lot.

I went to the Big Ten Network site and typed in my Cambridge zipcode. It said on Saturday at noon they would be playing the Umass game. I hope its right. Just food for thought.
