Hope everyone's holiday season is off to a safe and warm start!
Given the holiday season and spirit of giving, I wanted to share details re: some amazing M-themed apparel in support of a great cause.
I sit on the Michigan Alumni Board in Chicago and, similar to our friends with the Portland Club, an amazing fellow board member of mine has coordinated with Underground Printing to produce Chicago-inspired UM apparel. We have been selling these items locally at our sponsor bars & local events throughout the football season, but we now have a site that folks can purchase the items (thanks to our great partners at UGP!).
See below for images of our 4 items -- you can view these items in more detail and make your purchases on our site. Orders must be placed by Jan 24, then items will be shipped directly to customers in ~2 weeks. If you have any questions, please email us at [email protected].
Like with all of our events and fundraising efforts, please know that all proceeds from the sales of these items directly suppprt scholarships that we provide local UM students (current & prospective).
Thanks so much in advance for your consideration and generosity. Happy holidays, happy new year, and go blue!
Men's & Women's Tees - $25
Men's & Women's Long Sleeve Shirts - $30
Men's & Women's Crewneck Sweatshirts - $35
Men's & Women's Hoodies - $45
It was just announced that Derrick Rose will miss the rest of the season because of another knee injury. What do you think we'll see first, Derrick Rose play 82 games in a season or Jim Harbaugh coach the Raiders?
Got the following info in an email from the Chicago Alumni Association. I went last year (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/chicago-aaum-football-preview-recap) and had a great time. I definitely recommend the event and I'll see you there

According to MLive, JMo is working out with the Cavaliers, Timberwolves, and Bulls this week and next. He's shooting for a summer league tryout or maybe going to head to Europe to play for a bit before pursuing an engineering career.
All the best to him. Morgan is an exemplary alum, and I hope he gets on a team and succeeds.
(I didn't see this posted, let me know if it's old news).
