"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
Hey guys! The Michigan Men's Rowing Team will be competing at Dad Vail in May. The team has had a very good showing in recent years, winning the 2009 Men's Points Trophy and 2 points shy of winning the Overall (Mens+Womens) Trophy with just a Men's team. They are three time defending ACRA National Champions and they accomplish all this on very little funding from the University (they are a club varsity team). Much of the team's expenses are covered by team dues and work by the rowers and coxswains themselves.
If you can please help us out a little (and are Facebook-inclined) , go to this page, like it, go to discussions, then contest, and reply with "University of Michigan" to help us get our regatta expenses paid for. Thank You!

The game was televised on the BTN, Dan Kelly was the play by play announcer. We host Iowa this Sat and Sun.
The M Softball team is playing a double header today starting at 5:30pm on the BTN. Penn State has struggled this year so look for some strong offense from our girls.
My prediction for player of the game(s): Ashley Lane. She has been seeing the ball every well recently. I expect big numbers from her tonight.
Carmelo putting in an extraordinary performance in Game 2 against the C's tonight; Dwight Howard repeating his insane Game 1 performance against Atlanta.
Since were in a bit of a dead period how many MGoTokers do we have out there? As you all may know tomorrow is 4/20. A day to celebrate the best plant/ medicine God has planted on this green earth.
Besides the usual recreational smoking, how are you going to go about your day? Anyone going anywhere or doing anything special?
Feel free to discuss. Stories are always welcome.
Everyone have a safe 420 and keep blazin'.
