Parking prices look good. The ones I could see on my way (Clonlara $12, Lower Burns Park $20 on Stadium to $10 a few blocks in) looked competitive with previous games. A Michigan Football Parking 2007 spreadsheet tracks all the numbers. As always, the best recommended parking place is at the corner of Edgewood and Berkeley in Allmendinger Park.
KARB WX for the game predicts 60 degrees with a 10 mph wind from the NW at kickoff time. "A chance of sprinkles during the afternoon through 4 PM."
Game time is 3:30pm, which means it's time to run your errands then while traffic is quiet.
As of 2pm, "Michigan Notre Dame" is a #17 search on Google's Hot Trends.

MLive Diag Game Preview (Chris Burke): The pick: Michigan is a better team, even if it hasn't looked like it so far this year. The Wolverines have a more potent offense, better lines and should at least keep Clausen in check. Notre Dame has generated almost no offense this season - Michigan won't pitch a shutout, but neither will the Irish. If the Michigan defense can prove competent for at least one day, the first win should come. Michigan 24, Notre Dame 14
ESPN (Joe Schad): Notre Dame quarterback Demetrius Jones has enrolled at Northern Illinois and intends to play there next season, according to a source familiar with the situation. Jones started Notre Dame's season opener against Georgia Tech, but was pulled before the end of the first half and had not played since. He did not join Notre Dame on its road trip to Michigan this weekend.
