maybe i should have had greg howard write the brandon obit.
First post here and blog experience is limited so don't kill me, but this was some cool stuff to me and I figured I would share it with the MGoCommunity.
For those of you who follow @CoachJim4UM on twitter, you would most likely have already seen his shout out to Billy Butler a few days back with an image of Country Breakfast wearing a Michigan helmet and in a 3-point stance. I am actually a close friend of Billy's and he knows my obsession for everything UM. Following that post, he sent me a pic of the helmet in his locker.
He explained that this looks to be a season long tradition for the A's and the Winged Helmet will be the "award" for Oakland's Player of the Game. The player will be entrusted with the helmet until it is re-awarded to the next POG.
Anyway, thought that was worth sharing, and something that Michigan can hang their hat/helmet on!
i am a fan of the Star Wars original trilogy and am annoyed that there are going to be more movies made since the prequel trilogy wasn't very good.
The swimmers and divers went a little crazy at Jack Harbaugh's old school:
The Big Ten Conference released their weekly awards yesterday. Pitcher Megan Besta was named Conference Pitcher of the Week, while SS Abby Ramirez was named Co-Player of the week. She shared this award with Indiana's pitcher Michelle Huber.
Megan threw 2 Complete-game shutouts at Rutgers over the weekend. She now leads the Big Ten in lowest ERA at 1.45. We had some discussion in the Open Thread questioning who is our #1 pitcher? This should answer that question.
I understand that honoring Seniors is a time-honored tradition for all Michigan Varsity teams. However, I am a firm believer that the play on the field should decide these important questions.
Abby has been on a terror of late. She had a .750 BA over the past 4 games. She reached base in every AB against Rutgers including 2 powerful HRs. All from a player who stands about 5-2 1/2 and weighs about 110 pounds. Coach Hutch will have to re-think her strategy of having Abby slap-hit and possibly lead-off next year. Maybe Abby gets moved into the #3 or #4 slot next year if she keeps up these shenanigans.
We play at MSU tomorrow then host Huber's Indiana Hoosiers this weekend. These next 4 games should be explosive for us. It will be fun to watch.
OT-Report that former Nebraska Running Back Lawrence Phillips is being investigated for murder in prison
Are they the greatest team of all-time or just the greatest of the past 100 years?
Is Miguel Cabrera actually a long-lost relative of Harbaugh?
Has Harbaugh been seen doing any 3rd-base coaching in the D?
Can the bullpen actually hold it together?
