I know the Hockey team is getting it in as we speak but is anyone watching UFC? The last fight was tough with the 2 point deduction. Any streams for the main events are appreciated.
Sierra Romero, Middle Infielder, signed with us recently. She is finishing her senior season in HS and will be on campus in Aug12 and will be ready to go for FallBall12. This is not real news as Sierra had Michigan selected as her school for a few years now.
She Hails from Vista Murrieta California. During her Junior year in HS, Sierra batted .438 with a slugging percentage of 1.100, she scored 33 runs and had 36 RBIs. She had a .970 fielding percentage.
Vista Murrieta is located in SoCal. Other recent players hails from SoCal as well: Valencia (Jordan Taylor), Escondido (Ashley Lane), Norco (Nicole Sappingfield), Orange County (Haylie Wagner), Laguna Miguel (Mandy Gardner) and Corona (Lauren Sweet).
Coach Hutch has done an excellent job of recruiting the one of three hotbeds of softball. She continues to pull the top talent from this area of the country.
Sierra will be a welcome addition to the lineup as well as in the field. With Stephanie K graduating, Sierra can get a few reps at SS while backing up Amy next year. So Sierra could be a 3 year starter at SS for us. This young lady has it all: range, speed, power, and spunk.
It only gets better for us as we continue to reload. Incoming Freshman, Lauren Sweet is the California State Player of the Year. That is a HUGE honor, Lauren could be the best player in the World.
Reminder: Our first game is this coming Friday.
The #12 Michigan Wrestling team fell 24-13 to #6 Ohio (YTO) in Columbus today. But the most interesting thing to come out of the day was easily the worst call I have ever seen.
For those of you who don't know much about wrestling, ask yourself this: does the Michigan wrestler (Justin Zeerip) have control over the Ohio wrestler (Nick Heflin) before the clock hits zero (or for, I dunno, the LAST 10 SECONDS).
This is probably as bad as the blown extra point call in the Syracuse game. Actually, it's probably worse.
EDIT: Embed fail. Video in first comment.
I know wrestling isn't a huge point of topic on the board but it is another chance to BEAT OHIO. Tonight #12 Michigan goes to Columbus to take on #6 Ranked Ohio State.
So before watching the Hockey team beat Miami (NTM) you can watch the wrestling team.
Key Matches: Michigan in Bold
133 lb. weight class #16 Zach Stevens (Sr) vs #3 Logan Stieber (Fr)
141 lb. weight class #1 Kellen Russell (Sr) vs #6 Hunter Stieber (Fr)

174 lb. weight class #6 Justin Zeerip (Sr) vs #7 Nick Heflin (So)
285 lb. weight class #8 Ben Apland (Jr) vs #21 Peter Capone (So)
Other weight classes feature good matchups as both teams have roughly the same amount of top 25 ranked wreslers.
If I missed anything or need to amend anything let me know!
Per multiple reports, Jimmy Howard has broken a finger last night and will be out ~2 weeks. Joey MacDonald is being called up as the 2nd goalie until Howard's back. Obviously, if you are a Wings fan, this is not good.
UPDATE: The Red Wings press release states that Howard is out for the remainder of the road trip (games against Edmonton and Phoenix), after which he will be reevaluated. So hopefully it's less severe than initial speculation.
The Michigan Softball Team is ranked #15 in the Pre-Season Polls just released. The top three are:
Only two Big Ten teams cracked the top 25:
Softball is dominated by the PAC-12, Big-12 and to some extent SEC.
