"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
...under the Did You Knows. For anyone that has five minutes to kill and needs to be reminded about Desmond Morgan.
Do we have a mole at wikipedia or something?
Check out the fourth paragraph.
Following the Big Ten's addition of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, effective beginning in the 2011 football season, the conference will be split into two six-team divisions. Big Ten officials placed Ohio State and Michigan in separate divisions, but the Michigan – Ohio State rivalry will continue to take place at the end of the regular season every year. Conceivably, the teams may thereafter meet again the following week in the Big Ten Football Championship Game.
Has THE KNOWLEDGE been posting on wikipedia as well? I thought no decision has been made yet. Appropriately there is no cited source. Maybe just wishful thinking?
So I'm procrastinating and reading the offense UFR when I decide that I'm curious to check if wikipedia has any articles on speed--not the classic 90s action movie, the amphetamine, or your run-of-the-mill rate of d/t, but perhaps something on the physiology behind the varying ability of an organism to move fast, especially when that ability varies within a species, specifically humans. Basically, a "science of sports" type of article. Misguided and stupid? Perhaps, but just let it be.
Fifth "did you know"....
... that Dennis Fizgerald won a golf medal in wrestling at the 1963 Pan American Games, and set the Michigan Wolverines football record with a 99-yard kickoff return?
Anyone else think someone at Wikipedia is an alum as this is the second U of M football reference in about a month and the fourth or fifth in about six months?
Just wanted to pass along this factoid I noticed during my daily scan of the Wikipedia front page. They seem to feature articles relating to Michigan football an inordinate amount of the time, and today at the very end of "Did you know..."
... that the skills of Michigan Wolverines football punter Zoltan Mesko were discovered in seventh grade gym class when he knocked out a light during a kickball game?
If only I had taken 7th grade kickball more seriously...
We have to stay vigilent on wikipedia against our football enemies. I noticed that on one of the wikipedia pages, our Heisman trophy winners were called cheaters:
I promptly fixed this problem (btw...there were a couple Michigan football records on this webpage that even I was unaware of). Anyway, if you are looking at Michigan stuff, keep an eye out for this stuff.
