It has been a quiet week inside the basketball offices here in Ann Arbor but a busy one for the program as a whole. The coaches, including myself, have been traveling extensively on various recruiting trips, working hard to bring the best and brightest here to Michigan. Our players, on the other hand, have been balancing their time between schoolwork and workouts now that classes are in full swing.
We are all gearing up for an exciting football matchup this weekend as our Wolverines take on the Fighting Irish this Saturday. Last year's nail-biting victory here at the Big House under the lights was so memorable. The game certainly lived up to the buildup.
The last couple meetings between Michigan and Notre Dame have come down to the final plays. We certainly will all be on the edge of our seats for this upcoming game.
We have a very special event planned this weekend with our student-athletes and our staff. We are going to see if the talents of the student-athletes and the staff extend further than the basketball court. I will fill you in on the details in next week's Beilein Weekly.
Best of luck this weekend to all the Michigan teams that are competing.
