things go poorly
Final: Michigan 1 #12 Maryland 1 2OT
It's nice to get the point in the B1G standings, but Michigan nearly upset #12 Maryland tonight at U-M Soccer Stadium.
James Murphy had Michigan's goal, but the disappointing part was Michigan giving up a goal in the final minute of regulation. Maryland should thank their lucky stars for escaping with a tie.
Michigan is now 1-0-1 all-time against Maryland, with both contests coming in 2OT.
Michigan moves to 1-2-1 on the season and 0-0-1 in B1G play. Next up, they'll face Bowling Green at home and that will be the first Michigan sport that will be broadcast via the new BTN+.
A hard fought game for Michigan and it's nice to see that they rebounded well against a ranked team after that debacle last week at Columbia.
Men's Cross Country
First year under new head coach Kevin Sullivan
Ranked #22 in pre-season poll.
Opened with a non-scoring Michigan Open, where they mostly just ran as a group.
Stated as heading to Kentucky Invitational in Lexington this Saturday but for some reason it's not listed on their schedule. Black and Gold Invitational in Iowa City on September 20th would be next.

The U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team is looking to do something no previous U.S. U-20 MNT has done in the history of the U-20 qualifying tournament – win an outright final.

In addition to basketball starting tonight, men's soccer plays Northwestern at 3:30ET on BTN in the conference semi finals. Game is important for obvious reasons wrt the conference championship, but a win will go a long way towards NCAA tournament considerations.
I feel bad that I haven't kept up with the soccer team this year. Ever since the departure of Soony, Meram, Harmoody, it hasn't been the same.
Today I headed over to the official site to find a game I could make. Then my eyes bled.
That B10 logo is just as big as the block M on the left shoulder.
For the love of God, give me blue. (Coming from a guy who generally loves maize, especially with hockey and basketball - BUT NEVER FOOTBALL).
Soccer uniforms are pretty hard to fuck up. They are the most wearable and stylish of any sports apparel. All you have to do is keep them white and not have the numbers on the back represent a neon light.
