A dedication ceremony will be at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the field. Vice President for Student Affairs E. Royster Harper will speak at the event, as will Michigan Marching Band Drum Major Jeff McMahon and Club Sports Council President Jessica Craft.

"We want to encourage the campus community to join us in our celebration," Canning says.
I don't really have much to add that he doesn't already say.

To honor Vada’s memory and continue his fight against lung cancer, Sarah established The Vada Murray Fund For Cancer Research whose motto is: Fight Hard-Stay Tough-Never Give Up. The kickoff fundraiser will be a lunch and silent auction open to the public held this Sunday Sept. 11, from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at the U-M North Campus Research Complex (Old Pfizer Building), 2800 Plymouth Road, Ann Arbor. Tickets for the event are $10/person and $30 for a family of four (and $10 for each additional person). For more information go to: www.vadamurray.com.

Team USA is taking on Belgium in Brussels for a friendly in Klingsmans 3rd game as the US coach......Hopefully they can bounce back from the 1-0 loss to Costa Rica....Go USA!!!!!!!
Remember back in April when Nebraska was voted out of the AAU? Apparently Michigan and Wisconsin were both responsible for that!
...not too kind to some former Wolverines. Steve Schilling cut by the Chargers, as well as a few players from years before in there. I was surprised, as it seems like getting picked, even in the 6th round, means the team really likes some things about you. Hopefully he can catch on elsewhere, I think he could be a serviceable guard.
On a brighter note, Justin Boren cut by the Ravens.
