2/27/2012 - Outfielder Michael O'Neill earned the Big Ten Conference's Co-Player of the Week after going 8-for-15 (.533) with five doubles, three RBI and five stolen bases in a four-game series with Iona. On the year, O'Neill leads the team with a .464 batting average and a Big Ten-leading six doubles. He also is tied for the Big Ten and Michigan lead with junior Patrick Biondi (Woodhaven, Mich./Divine Child) with seven stolen bases. This is O'Neill's first Big Ten Player of the Week honor and first for Michigan since Biondi did the trick on April 19, 2010.
The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
