The latest APR scores were released today and Michigan did great:
The scores for Michigan were highlighted by the men’s basketball team, which scored a perfect 1,000 in both the multi-year APR and the 2010-11 single-year APR. The men’s basketball team was one of 10 Michigan sports to receive perfect APR scores for 2010-11, including the women’s basketball team.
Michigan men’s basketball is one of 11 schools -- and the only one in the Big Ten -- to have a perfect multi-year APR score.
The Michigan football team had a single-year APR of 984 and a multi-year APR of 943. The 984 was the highest Hoke has had as a head coach, dating to his time at Ball State.
For John Beilein, it was the third time in the past four seasons his team has landed a perfect 1,000 on the APR.
It's great to see Michigan sports doing so well, academically. The multi-year APR for the football team should go up, as the attrition from the transition from RR to Hoke finally settles down. Full APR numbers for all the sports are found at the link below:
For those that may be interested, the Michigan Bowling Team is in Indianapolis this weekend bowling in the Hoosier Classic. There will be live video streams on www.bowl.com starting at 7:45a both today and tomorrow. This is the largest tournament in college bowling history with the largest prize fund in college bowling history.
This article's dated January 13th, but I haven't seen it after checking the board or m.go.licio.us so here it is:
Finally, a decent weekend, although it would have been awesome if hockey had swept Alaska. However, getting a big OOC win in basketball, Denard proving his speed against OSU and picking up two (maybe more?) recruits in a single weekend is some of the better news we've had in awhile.
Hopefully it continues.
I've seen a few threads over the past season asking about places to watch UM games in various cities around the country. Living outside of Michigan for over a year now, I was happy to find a group to watch games with. Alumni have clubs all around the country, but people don't always receive updates from those groups, and some smaller cities may not have a strong alumni base, let alone an active club.
I thought it would be nice to start a thread about which bars/restaurants you may know of in your cities (excluding Ann Arbor, of course) where Wolverine faithful can enjoy games in the company of fellow fans.
