When word circulated that Michigan was going to the Sugar Bowl, Drew Dileo's phone started dancing.
Will Heininger realizes he may have played his last game at Michigan, even with the Sugar Bowl still to be played on Tuesday.

Michigan junior defensive tackle Will Campbell has spent time in the coaches' crosshairs over the past few years. Blessed with major talent but challenged to reach his potential, Campbell has just begun earning the coaches' praise. With Nathan Brink out and Will Heininger questionable for the Sugar Bowl on Tuesday, Campbell may get significant snaps.
Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson, who plays a style of football similar to Michael Vick, will try to emulate the player he grew up watching when the Wolverines face Virginia Tech in the Allstate Sugar Bowl on Jan. 3.
For weeks, Michigan coach John Beilein has hinted that sophomore big man Jon Horford's foot injury could be a long-term problem. Beilein sounded more definitive when he met with reporters Wednesday in Ann Arbor as the Wolverines prepared for tonight's Big Ten opener against Penn State. Horford's right foot injury is a stress fracture in the fourth metatarsal.
Trey Burke did more than enough in Michigan's nonconference games to earn the trust of Wolverine fans, even as a freshman point guard. Thursday, he won over the final doubters. In his first Big Ten game, Burke had 13 points, seven assists and five rebounds without turning over the ball as No. 18 U-M routed Penn State, 71-53, at Crisler Center.
