ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan head football coach Rich Rodriguez, his staff and the Wolverine players spoke with the media at Media Day on Sunday morning (Aug. 17), less than two weeks before the opening kickoff of the 129th season of U-M football.
Rodriguez gave his opening press conference to the media, followed by one-on-one interviews with Michigan's coordinators and position coaches. The media also had a chance to interview, videotape and photograph each of the Wolverine players on the practice field adjacent to Oosterbaan Fieldhouse.
At noon, the players bused to Michigan Stadium for the team and group pictures, giving the media one more opportunity to enter the stadium prior to the 2008 kickoff. Then it was back to Oosterbaan Fieldhouse for the afternoon's Fan Day, which gave the fans a chance to meet the team and coaches, get autographs and photos, and pick up promotional materials.
The Wolverines open the season at home against Utah on Saturday, Aug. 30, at 3:30 p.m.
