Hey, Happy Halloween everybody!! Have fun out there, and BEAT SPARTY!!
THE BLOCKHAMS™ runs (typically) every week here at MGoBlog and on its official home page. Also, don't forget to check out the Friday Fun, my weekly single panel comic based on trending Michigan events, available on Twitter and the home page every Friday.
Title says it all. Big game for the kickers if you need something during commercial breaks of the 7pm games.
It's a bye week, so slow day on the board. Michigan Basketball plays in 5 days! What's everyone up to this weekend? Any creative Halloween costumes?
A couple of Michigan ladies have set new UM all-time scoring marks in their respective sports, an achievement that seems worthy of some notation.
In field hockey, senior Rachel Mack out of Bromsgrove, England tallied twice against OSU, including an OT game winner to give Michigan the 2-1 victory over a struggling Buckeye team. Mack has been the featured offensive threat throughout her career at Michigan, and her two markers on Sunday put her at 69 for her career, surpassing April Fronzoni (2000-03).
On the soccer side of the ledger, senior Nkem Ezurike got to celebrate her accomplishment at home, scoring twice against Purdue, including the game winner in a 3-1 Michigan triumph. Ezurike now has 45 goals in her distinguished career in the Maize & Blue, passing Kacy Beitel (1997-00) in the school record books.
Both teams have a few games left in the regular season before heading off to Big Ten & NCAA tournaments. Women's soccer is especially one to keep an eye on, ranked #7 in the country and in the thick of the Big Ten race. Best of luck to these two great Michigan stars as they look to further cement their places in Michigan history and to their respective teams as well!
Solid win for #17 Michigan. Watched it on MGoBlueTV. The pep band was actually there in EL.
After being down 1-0 in a hostile environment, the ladies stormed back and won three straight games to take the match 3-1. The gap is quickly closing on the series record. Michigan is now 39-48 against state.
Michigan is now 14-6 overall and 4-5 in the B1G at 9th place. Keep in mind, Michigan did not finish very high in the B1G last year and went to the Final 4.
The B1G is arguably the best volleyball conference in the country (like basketball and wrestling).
7/12 conference teams are ranked, including ohio who is 10th place in the B1G at #24.
eat em' up. lets go Max
