Coaches' timeouts are worse. Basketball teams should get one, full stop.
Space, bitches. Space.
UM did very well in all the rankings:
MBA: #11 (Wharton, Harvard and Stanford tied for #1)
Education: #8 (John Hopkins #1)
Engineering: #8 (MIT #1)
Law: #10 (Yale #1)
Medicine (Research): #12 (Harvard #1)
Medicine (Primary Care): #8 (Washington #1)
Well done by Michigan, very few schools are ranked in the top across all categories.
Looks like 25 years after the 1st of 2 championships, the Bad Boys are going to get the 30 for 30 documentary treatment which is set to air April 17th @ 8PM and is two hours long.
I myself am to young too remember the team but my dad still has numerous copies of the front pages of all the newspapers laying around somewhere.

Happy spring-forward-sleepy Monday. Thought this might brighten you day. SportsCenter anchors get new uniformz:
The M softball team (14-6) split two games yesterday in Fullerton, CA.
Against Houston (11-9) Sierra Romero hit a home run but apart from that M was able to bring just one of their 13 other baserunners (9 other hits, 2 walks, 2 HBP) around. Romero had 3 hits and Lauren Sweet, Lyndsay Doyle, and Kelsey Susalla 2 each. Megan Betsa started and had a rough outing, allowing 3 runs on 4 hits, a walk, and an HBP in 1.2 innings. Sara Driesenga finished up and fared better, giving up 2 unearned runs on 5 hits and 2 walks in 4.1 innings. She struck out 3 Cougars.
In contrast, M got some timely hitting against Arizona (20-2), in particular from Sierra Lawrence who had two RBI singles. Haylie Wagner went the distance, allowing 1 walk, 1 HBP, and just 4 hits despite striking out just one Wildcat. The M defense did its job, committing no errors and allowing very few of the numerous balls in play to get through for hits.
Today M goes up against Texas.
