Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
I received this email yesterday regarding the new UofM plates in Texas. Any fans in Texas can pre-order them now. Most of the obvious combinations are taken, but there are some good ones available.
Excerpt from the email:
The University of Michigan needs to secure 200 pre-orders before the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles can launch this official plate.
Previously registered interest to purchase this plate?
Just hearing about it now?
Then NOW is the time to ACT!!
Follow the simple steps below.The University of Michigan needs 200 Pre-Orders from supporters like you to launch this plate in Texas, and there is only a limited amount of time to reach this number.
If 200 Pre-Orders are not reached, the University of Michigan plate will not launch, and all orders/monies received will be fully refunded.
Thought this was a pretty interesting read, makes some vaild points on why students are frustrated and not showing up and why the game day experience should be more for what the fan pays. What are your thoughts?
After that dissappointing loss let's have a separate thread to differentiate this hopefully much better game from that poor showing. Game starts at 7:00 p.m on ESPN. GO BLUE!
The #5 seed Michigan Wolverines take on the #1 seed Indiana Hoosies tonight in the Big Ten Tournament. Indiana beat #8 Iowa 5-2 yesterday while Michigan beat #4 Minnesota 3-2 with a 3-run Home Run by Travis Maezes being Michigan's only source of income. Michigan has lost to Indiana twice but beaten them once. Indiana is good but Michigan can win if we play well. Brett Adcock will be on the mound for Michigan.
The countdown is on. Today, May 22nd, there are 100 days until Michigan football kicks off the 2014 season.
The Michigan Softball and Women's Lacrosse teams played today (well, yesterday technically) and both won in dominating fashion.
The softball team won at CMU 11-0 in five innings. Romero hit a home run on her very first pitch and Sierra Lawrence and Kelly Christner each had home runs. Megan Betsa and Sara Driesenga were both solid on the mound for Michigan's 3rd straight shutout. Michigan has now won 20 straight, the sixth time in program history that has happened. The team has a big weekend against Big Ten #2 Minnesota this weekend. Winning at least one would be big, winning two or three would be huge.
Michigan Women's Lacrosse also won its third game (second straight) of the year against Detroit, 16-6. This is the most goals Michigan has scored this year and the fewest allowed this year. Detroit has had a team for longer than Michigan, so winning 16-6 is certainly a good sign for the future.
