a terrible blight on our fine country
Nothing will ever top Harbaugh playing Screech's cousin on "Saved By the Bell," but in a rerun of "The Odd Couple" tonight on CBS (8:30), C-Webb makes a cameo as himself:
I have never seen this show, and I have to believe it's awful, but I'll probably tune in tonight to see it. There was another thread from a few months back that listed all the athletic Wolverines who have made cameo appearances on TV, and it's an impressive list, indeed.
In an anonymous poll of over 100 D1 coaches, he beat out the likes of Bo Ryan and Coach K. Not that we didn't already know this.
So 50 year old Greg Oden, arguably one of the worst #1 picks of all time due to his knee problems severely limiting his playing time, has just agreed to a 1 year contract with the Jiangsu Dragons of the Chinese Basketball Association.
A little googling tells me that they also have former first round picks MarShon Brooks (Providence, 25th pick in 2011) and Arnett Moultrie (Miss St, 27th pick in 2012) on the roster, along with another 7 footer in Tang ZhengDong.
Per Sam Webb on Twitter, Miles Bridges will be taking an official visit to UM on October 10. He visited unofficially a few weeks ago (his first visit), so this second visit should be pretty important if we're gonna make up ground on Kentucky and MSU.
That being said, I would caution against getting hopes up about anything related to basketball recruiting until about 9 am on National Signing Day.
So I'm looking at going to the Battle 4 Atlantis and I was wondering if anyone on the blog was going and had found a well-priced option to get there. I checked through the hotel and they estimated $6200 for 2 adults and 2 kids for an airfare/hotel combo. The fact that the tourney is over the Thanksgiving holiday probably jacks up the airfare price. Any thoughts? Is there a UM affiliate chartering a plane out of DTW/AA?
