Last year I posted a link to the Michigan Cycling Team's kit order for alumni and friends and it was greated with a warm reception.
The Michigan Cycling team is a Club-sport who competes in the Midwest Collegiate Cycling Conference. Other teams in our conference include MSU, OSU, Notre Dame, Indiana, Wisconsin, Purdue, Illinois, Case Western, Louisville, Northwestern, Cincinatti, Marquette, Miami (NTM), and a bevy of other small schools. Our conference also features a few schools that consider cycling a varsity sport including Marian and Lindenwood.
The kit order is once again live and this year they're added a couple more options including a special edition "Great Lakes" jersey.
These are the same exact uniforms that the team will be racing in next spring.
More information about the team can be found here :http://www.umcycling.org/
Below is a copy and paste of the information lifted from the team's facebook page:
Prices do tend to run a bit high, but such is the nature of being a small fish in the big pond of paying university royalties and the like. Any proceeds go towards helping get team member's to races and most importantly nationals.
Greetings Michigan Alumni, Parents, and Friends!
It's that time of year again. The leaves are changing, the air is cooling, Harbaugh has the football team rolling, and its time to stock up on all of that great Michigan cycling gear!
This year we have our classic Maize and Blue jerseys as well as some fun additions, including a special edition Great Lakes jersey and a warm winter jacket. Not only are you guaranteed to look great, but every purchase helps a Michigan student get to a race.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email rgburnet at umich dot edu.
The store will be open until October 23rd. Once the store closes, it is closed for good. All orders should arrive in December before Christmas.
Note: Please note that all custom team store products are PREORDERS. All orders will be put into production once the store closes and will be delivered approximately 10-12 weeks after. You must place your order before the store closes.
With no game on our horizon this week, I am daring to ask an OT question slightly out of season. For years my father-in-law and I have made a bet here and there on Michigan games. He'd take ohio or MSU in a big game, and the deal was that the loser of the bet had to buy a $5 lotto ticket and if we ever hit it, we'd split the pot (yes, I have just about run out of $5 bills at this point...). I note that the Powerball lottery is just north of $100 Million right now.
My question to the board is this: If you won some gargantuan lottery with a 9-figure pay-off, what would you do with the money? Buy stuff? Go places? Share with friends/family? Make a huuuuge donation to 'Beveled Guilt'? Retire?
Where would you be 5 or 10 yrs after the big win?
Just happened to notice this on my guide and figured the board may appreciate a heads up for something to flip to during football commercials. M is currently leading the first set 18-12.
Good Friday morning! Early day to get my swimmer to practice. Late night for my soccer player. Can I just sleep in tomorrow until Hurricane Jim and the Dudes roll into and over Rutgers?!

The University of Michigan-Dearborn Police Department received a report of a Clown sighting on our campus. The Clown was observed close to the trees, in the field between the University Center and the Mardigian Library around midnightOctober 4, 2016. The following description was given:
• Height approximately 6 foot, with average build
• Wearing dark clothing and a white clown mask
Please use caution if you observe any Clowns, due to the recent activity around Southeast Michigan. Please contact our department immediately.
It has begun.
In advance, please accept my apologies for inserting a way off-topic post. I'm sort of at my wits end and am hoping my brethren on this board might have an answer for me. Mod's please feel free to delete or move if I'm out of bounds.
I recently shot a 2.5 hour interview of my 84 year old father. I asked him a pre-prepared set of questions about his family, heritage, his two tours in Korea, and of course -- attending Michigan games back in the day. This was all done in a higher-resolution setting on my iPhone 6.
Long story short, I have three clips ranging from 35 to 55 minutes which for the life of me I cannot get off the phone onto my laptop for editing. I've tried everything I can think of including two different third party applications, but nothing will find them or successfully move them. I can watch the clips fine on my phone, though that obviously wasn't the intent,
Any help you might provide, my family and I would be hugely grateful, as he is not in the best of health and I don't want to put him through it again.
Thank you, and again apologies for the off-topic.
