Today has been a great day for Michigan Athletics.
In addition to the Men's Gymnastics team winning an NCAA Championship a year ago and being the favorite to repeat AT Crisler Center where the meet will be hosted, the dominant Women's program added more hardware and years to their banner at Crisler.
Michigan has just won the B1G Gymnastics Championship.
Their star and 2013 NCAA Champion, Joanna Sampson scored a perfect 10.00 on FX. A perfect score is the biggest thing a gymnast wants to shoot for individually in terms of performance. And to do it at the B1G Championships is outstanding.
Despite a lopsided loss today in a headscratcher against Saint Joeseph's, Bellarmine lost their 3rd straight ECAC game and is 0-3.
Since Michigan beat Bellarmine last week, and the ECAC is a five team league with a four team tournament, Michigan will play postseason lacrosse for the first time in history. The ECAC Tournament is in columbus in early May and will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1.
I've long heard tales of an eventual purchase of the 16.7 acre Edwards Brothers site by the University. Then I heard that the city would step in and prevent another big chunk of the tax base from bing taken off the tax rolls. The story, with a little more detail, has been in the papers (virtual or otherwise) the past few days.
What do you think aout the whole thing, pros & cons? AND...does anyone know more than what can be read in the news story? Who will get their hands on the property and how will it be used? The Victors for Michigan campaign seems to have a lot planned for the space. Will it happen?
