Be sure to check Gene out tomorrow on “The Sportsbeat” with Dennis Fithian on WTKA 1050 AM from 4-7 pm. He’ll preview Saturday Night’s Big 33 Classic, which features incoming Wolverines Chad Henne, Chris Rogers, and Mike Massey. Then on Sunday, Gene will join us in the first hour of our show with a recap of what is sure to be an eventful game. We’ll also devote time to the Michigan High School All-Star game, which takes place on Saturday at 2pm at Michigan Stadium. Alex Mitchell, Charles Stewart, and John Thompson will all be in action in that contest.
Once we conclude our discussion of those exhibitions, we’ll switch gears and get right back into our heated debate from last week regarding Michigan’s preseason ranking. We’ll be joined by Phil Steele in the second hour and he’ll provide us with his view on the top 10 and how Michigan stacks up with the best teams in the country. Will Tom Beaver's ever-pessimistic view on Michigan's pre-season ranking be proven accurate, or will the more optimistic viewpoints of the other hosts ring more true. Join us from 9-11 am Sunday to find out!
As always, you can reach us live in studio at 734-998-1050. Listeners outside of the WTKA coverage area will be able to listen to the archived show a day early this week since we’ll have it up for the noon hour on Monday!
