this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
ESPN had an interesting article about the sanctions being lifted. At least one of the three living players will reconcile by evidence of this quote from Maurice Taylor
"This morning, I felt really good about the dissociation being over and having the opportunity to reunite with the University of Michigan," Taylor told The AP on Wednesday. "I'm excited to talk to Mr. Brandon and coach (John) Beilein. While I had some success in the NBA, there was a void in my life because of the circumstances. I had three of the best years of my life there and I love that school and all that it stands for."
Here is DB on the three-
Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon insisted the door is open.
"I've never met any of those guys, and I am looking forward to meeting them," Brandon said late Tuesday night in an interview with The Associated Press. "If any of those guys are interested in meeting with me, that would be great."
Chris Webber's 10-year required disassociation from Michigan is now officially over.
Michigan mens Basketball will Officially host Arizona at Crisler Center on Dec. 14. Reports came out a while ago but the Arizona daily star has said its official. this should be a great game between two ranked teams. Michigans schedule gets better and better. Wonder why they didnt schedule a meeting for football would have loved to see us go against Rich Rods new team just to see how we match up. What do you guys think?

Very interesting to see if anything happens tomorrow. Like if his pictures start to reappear in the recordbook and Michigan photo store starts putting up Fab Five pics for sale since they can sell whatever photos they have the rights to.

http://www.mgoblue.com/genrel/050713aaa.html Title says most of it. Thirteen UM athletes were named to the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) All-American Player of the Year status. Among them was Jon Horford.
Strength coach Jon Sanderson on Jon Horford ... "Jon Horford has a relentless drive to be the best in the weight room and on the court. He has made tremendous gains in his time at Michigan improving in every area that we test. His vertical jump has improved by four inches and his back squat has improved by 135 lbs., among others. He is a high-character kid and a joy to coach."
Awesome to see all the athletes working hard.
