Hockey pet peeve: "when a teammate tips a puck in on you, which is exactly how my first collegiate goal against happened. Thanks, Copper."
He will take his talents to UCLA instead. This was a weird recruitment overall. Initial commitment was to USC, then De-Commit and surprisingly picked ND over UCLA and Alabama. Now this.
The Michigan Women's Tennis Team's season came to an end last night after the team was swept 4-0. The initial start time for the match was 7:00 central, yet it didn't begin until 11:00. Michigan played well in all of the matches, yet could only win one doubles flight. All of the matches were close, and had a few points gone Michigan's way, Michigan could have advanced to their first ever elite eight. This was a good season for Michigan, the only disappointment being that they lost to Northwestern in the Big Ten Tournament Finals for the eighth time in nine years. Other than that, a good season. Hopefully next year they can build upon their successes and advance to their first ever elite eight. Go Blue!
Below are the flight-by-flight results:
No. 1 -- No. 3 Robin Anderson (UCLA) d. No. 30 Emina Bektas (U-M), 6-3, 6-4
No. 2 -- No. 20 Kyle McPhillips (UCLA) d. No. 58 Ronit Yurovsky (U-M), 6-1, 6-2

No. 6 -- Courtney Dolehide (UCLA) d. Kristen Dodge (U-M), 6-1, 6-0
No. 1 --No. 6 Emina Bektas/Brooke Bolender (U-M) d. No. 25 Robin Anderson/Skylar Morton (UCLA), 8-6

It doesn't really surprise me that he stayed, but that's quite a long contract. VCU should remain fairly relevant as long as he's around. The search continues for Minny and UCLA.
UCLA freshman Shabazz Muhammad, the #1 basketball recruit in the country, was just ruled ineligible by the NCAA.
UCLA announces Shabazz Muhammad is in eligible. No time frame listed. UCLA believes it unjust and will fight it. Not good for Bruins.
Isn't this stuff supposed to happen to Purdue?
If there ever was any question whether UCLA would be competitive for the 2011 football season, it has been answered decisively today:
Senior Sean Sheller began spring ahead of Hasiak but moved to left tackle when junior Jeff Baca broke his left ankle. Sheller, who subsequently went down with a broken hand, is expected to begin fall camp at left tackle and remain there until Baca returns, perhaps in October. The only other guards listed on the end-of-spring depth chart are redshirt freshman Wade Yandall and walk-ons Sam Saultz and Jay Barlow.
Only one of UCLA’s four incoming freshman is projected to play guard — Ben Wysocki (6-4, 265) of Los Alamitos High. Another option might be JC transfer Albert Cid (6-4,320), who verbally committed to the Bruins in May after playing for Citrus Community College in 2010.
Neuheisel is 4-8, 7-6 and 4-8. And still nothing set at quarterback.
