Reported by Baumgardner, among others. This is obviously a setback with regard to LeVert's summer workout plans, but he should be recovered in time for the trip to Italy:
“Caris underwent surgery today for a stress fracture of his foot at the University of Michigan hospital," Beilein said in a statement.

2) Greek Mythology - A surprisingly useful class for life, especially if you like to read. Professor Verhoogt is funny and the class was pretty easy.
3) The History of Witchcraft - Another gem in the Classic Civ department, which seems to have the highest ratio of easy classes of any department at the U.
