fair point that
the documents they filed in their lawsuit against New York will put them to rest.
Sort of OT, since Men's Rowing isn't a NCAA sport, but it's still always nice to recognize people on campus who exemplify what it means to be "leadsers and best."
To those who aren't aware, Men's Rowing is a club sport on campus, and so they don't benefit from having full AD support. These student-athletes (many of whom are in the College of Engineering) pay to play; and really play for love of the game (since I doubt many people would willingly pay to work out at 5am everyday unless they really love it). At the head of this machine is a man I have come to know and respect, Gregg Hartsuff, who has really gone above and beyond to create a serious contender despite scholarship and recruiting limitations. He has been awarded USRowing's Man of the Year award for his efforts growing the sport on campus and across the country (playing an instrumental role in founding the Collegiate Club National Championships), coaching the United States to gold in the most recent World Universities Games, and just being a mentor to countless of Michigan men and women who have walked through his boathouse doors.
And to boot, Michigan currently enjoys a 19-regatta winning streak against OSU, including a clean sweep of the Buckeyes this past week.
The team has hired Rod Wood, the former CEO of Ford Estates, to be the new head of the franchise. This comes two weeks after the Lions fired team president Tom Lewand and general manager Martin Mayhew as a signal of change within the organization after a 1-7 start to the season. The Lions also announced they have established an advisory board to search for a new GM. It consists of owner Martha Ford, her four children and Wood. Martha Ford said the advisory board potentially will use specific members of the NFL's Career Development Advisory Panel to assist in the search.
According to Schefter, Lions have not hired a search firm to help find a new GM.
I was afraid this might happen. Let's hope they tank the rest of the way or there's a chance Caldwell keeps his job and Sheldon White is named permanent GM.
After losing first set 25-14, UM swept the next 3 by identical scores of 25-22.
Winning at #4 penn state.
Coach Hutch signed Abby Skvarce from Clarkson High School. She is a Catcher and two-time all-state honorable mention. She is also a three-time district and two-time all-league selection. This is a position of need for the team.
She has a career .452 BA with a .607 Slugging Percentage. Defensively she has a .962 fielding percentage. She threw out 31 base runners in 2015.
I have watched Abby since she was a Freshmen and Coached against her in a tournament a few years back. She has a rocket for an arm and threw out my fastest runner. As a matter of fact, Abby was the only catcher to throw our my lead-off batter that season. Her travel teams were the Michigan Bulldogs and Michigan Finesse; both are top-tiered programs in Southeastern Michigan.
Welcome to the family, Abby. At least you will not have to buy a new winter jacket.
