"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."
Interesting take on the increases in revenue in the B1G vs on-field success in football.
- The ADs in the B1G to include Smith and Brandon also are pointing towards recruiting geography, focus and schemes as a key difference.
- Size of staffs (Alabama significantly higher in non-coaching positions)
- SEC is 4th in funding behind B1G #1, PAC12, ACC
- Focus on funding non-revenue sports - B1G funds on average 4 more non-revenue sports than SEC and 6 more than Big12.
The U of M women's tennis team continued it's winning ways Friday with a 4-1 decision over #13 Georgia Tech. UM advances to 6-0 on the season, with 4 of those wins coming against ranked opposition. Saturday brings a major test for the #8 Wolverines, as they face off against top-ranked Stanford. Michigan's women's tennis team has been making it's name known on the national stage the last few years, and this is just the kind of stage we need to really demand people's attention! Let's go Blue!
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:
I've put together a Google Calender of the Fall Michigan athletic events in all sports. I figured I would share it.
Right now, it just has all the home events (exception: Football has their entire schedule on there). Sports included are: Football, Women's Soccer, Field Hockey, Volleyball. Some men's soccer are there; they haven't released their schedule but other teams do have Michigan scheduled, so that's where those are from. I update this calender throughout the year, so once basketball, hockey, swimming, tennis, etc release their calenders, I'll update them.
The reason for only home games is that I try to attend as many as possible and including all games makes it a little cluttered... but I'm willing to add away games if enough people are interested.
