Didn't see this on here, but Lions Center Raiola has been accused of verbally harassing members of the UW marching band prior to the beginning of the game. I don't know much about him and I didn't see the game, did anyone hear anything about this?
The Lions are investigating this.
Dual-threat QB Zack Darlington of Apopka, FL (hometown of M's own Jeremy Gallon), has chosen Nebraska over offers from the likes of Virginia Tech, Arizona, West Virginia, Auburn, Ole Miss, and--perhaps most significantly--Ohio State. According to an Orlando Sentinel article covering his committment, Darlington "picked the 'Huskers over Ohio State, much to the dismay of Buckeyes' head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Tim Herman, about whom Darlington could not say enough good things." Darlington is a 4-star on ESPN and a 3-star to the other three. Here is a link to the Orlando Sentinel article.
The Michigan Baseball team is playing at Nebraska today in the Big Ten regular season finale. Michigan is currently winning 4-3 in the bottom of the third and the game is on Big Ten Network. If Michigan wins, they are guaranteed a spot in the Big Ten Tournament. If Michigan loses, Penn State must beat Michigan State for Michigan to have a spot. That game is currently 0-0 in the fifth. Go Blue!
The Michigan Men's Baseball team won a huge game at Nebraska, 7-5. Michigan was down 5-2 in the top of the sixth but a one run sixth inning and four run seventh inning propelled Michigan to the win.

The top six teams qualify for the Big Ten Tournament and this is the final weekend of regular season play. Below are the current standings:
Ohio State 15-7
Michigan State 11-8
Penn State 3-19

The recent Cornhusker defections seem to getting to ol' Bo Pelini. 2013 WR Dominic Walker decided to flip his commitment to Auburn and got a bitter response:
"It was a very tough decision. They were [mad]. They were very mad," Walker said." But I thought I had to call them like a real man should."But yeah, they were mad. Coach Pelini said, 'Best of luck, you're going to need it.' "
Maybe I'm still peeved over last year's NEB game, but I'm starting to feel like karma is swirling pretty hard in Lincoln. Why not just respect the kid's decision and move on? Why be a d*** about it?
