that is nice bonus change
Anyone harboring warm and fuzzy feelings for our little buddies to the East need to get their game face on, and anyone who hasn't already got their tickets for Saturday's game at the palace need to trek out there and take care of business. Oakland's coach has been wagging his tongue. Apparently(according to Kampe) Beilein told him Michigan has nothing to gain from playing them in the future(which is true, but I doubt he actually said that) and Kampe is trying to spin it like Michigan is afraid to play Oakland.
I recognize that this could be a ploy to sell tickets...But I'll be damned if some glorified high school basketball coach from a pissant program is going to talk about my team like that.
The Michigan women's basketball team survived a scare from Detroit tonight to pull out a 61-51 road victory. The Wolverines had led by as many as 19 in the second half before a late run by the Titans cut the lead to 2 (52-50) with 3:15 to go. Michigan then finished the game on a 9-1 run to secure the victory.
Michigan was led by Jenny Ryan, who had a great all-around game with 9 points, 11 assists, 6 rebounds, and 6 steals. The scoring leaders for the team were Kate Thompson with 16 and Rachel Sheffer with 14.
The victory avenges Michigan's loss to the Titans last year—and more importantly keeps their tournament resume free of "bad" losses. The team next travels to EMU for a Sunday road game at 2:00 pm. The Eagles beat Michigan in the first round of the WNIT last year, so revenge week continues. On paper, EMU figures to be a tougher matchup than Detroit was, as the Titans' record is now 1-8 while EMU is 4-2 and recently took Michigan State to overtime before losing 60-59.
Nice work Scout! You've managed to have the same guy in the same class... twice! This also moves UM up to #8 in class rankings considering 1/2 of Nick is a whole other 3-star recruit.
Attention to detail FAIL
You may recall that Rumeal Robinson was convicted of various types of fraud and consipiracy to commit fraud. It showed up on the board a few times, an example of which can be seen here: http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/rumeal-robinson-sentenced-6-12-yrs-financial-fraud.
Anyhow. Rumeal lost his appeal before the Eighth Circuit. The opinion was issued today. You can find it here (http://www.ca8.uscourts.gov/opns/opFrame.html) if you click on "Today's Opinions" (sorry, can't find a way to link to it directly).
The ACL gods have smitten Purdue once again, for the second time to Bolden in his career at Purdue. He will (obviously) miss their bowl game against WMU, but he is a Junior so he does have next year. Tough luck for Bolden and the Boilermakers, heres to a a speedy and full recovery.
