Happy National Heat Awareness Day, MGoBloggers!
In much of the east, midwest and southwest parts of the country it's going to be "Hot, Hot, Hot" today.
Safe travels to all who will be on the road this weekend . . and much respect and honor to all who've given their lives in service of the United States of America and all those who continue to serve.
Go Red, White and BLUE!

The Big Ten Conference RPI is ranked seventh, so it would be hard for the conference to receive more than a couple of at-large bids to the NCAA tournament. The projected field as of May 18 had only Minnesota, Nebraska and Michigan from the Big Ten. LINK
As of now, Michigan's best shot at getting an at-large bid comes from having the second-best RPI among conference teams, slightly behind Nebraksa that Michigan swept in a three-game series in mid-April.
But despite having a top 40 RPI (just barely), ending the season with seven of eight losses might have hurt the Wolverines’ chances of an NCAA at-large bid if they don't at least make it to the conference tournament championship game. Michigan finished the season 12-13 against teams with winning records, after starting the season with six wins in seven games against teams that wound up with records of better than .500. LINK
Of the Big Ten teams that finished ahead of Michigan in the Big Ten standings, in their last ten games, conference leader Minnesota finished 5-5, second-place Nebraska and fourth-place Ohio State (tied for third with Indiana, but getting the fourth seed in the tournament) both have gone 8-2, and Indiana finished 4-6, while fifth-place Michigan finished 3-7.

Granted, they're not scholarship players and wouldn't be expected to make major contributions this coming season, but:
Andrew Dakich was supposed to use last season as a redshirt season so that he could transfer to a school where he could gain some more meaningful playing time. Has he decided to stay at Michigan? Will he be satisfied with another year as head bench cheerleader and emergency point guard, or is he now planning to take a redshirt year at a school where he could play during the 2017-18 season as a graduate student?
Sean Lonergan used last season as HIS redshirt season, perhaps with the plan to transfer to a school where he would gain some meaningful playing time. Has he decided to stay at Michigan? Or is he also transferring in order to gain two years of more playing time at another school?

Second-place Tottenham plays tomorrow at 10th-place Chelsea, then finishes their season at home to 8th-place Southampton (playing 4th-place Manchester City today) and at Newcastle (currently in 17th place and fighting to avoid relegation.) If Tottenham loses or draws at Chelsea, then Leicester City wins the championship.
Manchester City has a mid-week Champions League semifinal match at Real Madrid, and then hosts Arsenal next Sunday in a match that probably will determine whether Arsenal or Man City will finish third in the Premiership. Man City ends its regular season at 13th-place Swansea, while Arsenal closes its regular season by hosting last-place Aston Villa (with USA goalkeeper Brad Guzan, and already having been relegated to a lower division for next season.)

Wolverine In Iowa, please forgive me, but I've got one minor correction for your original post. As someone who has (a) loved the film "Field of Dreams" from the first time I saw it during its original theatrical run, about six months after my father died, and (b) had to endure several Arsenal losses at Manchester United's home stadium, I believe that Old Trafford is more commonly known as The Theatre of Dreams, NOT the Field of Dreams.
As a long-time Arsenal fan who has been suffering through their miserable collapse and uninspriing play during 2016, I'll be nervously hoping that the Leicester City-ManU match will end in a well-played draw that will, at least for the moment, keep ManU four points back of the Gunners in the EPL Table. I'd still like to cling to the hope that the Gunners can remain in the top four in the standings at the end of the season.
And, borrowing from John Oliver AND also because you're in Iowa, now this:

At his age, how likely is it that John Beilein suddenly will become among the best college basketball recruiters? Yet he's still among the top 50 active college coaches in terms of career winning percentage AND the University of Michigan probably isn't going to lose its reputation as one of the best universities in the world anytime soon.
If Beilein feels that he has to fill that last open scholarship for next season, could he find an international player who has performed well in international club tournaments and leagues who's fluent in English and who might be willing to consider Michigan?

By late 1962, all of the music I owned was on 45s (most of which disappeared after I went away to college and forgot to bring the 45s with me); but this was the fastest selling record in the history of the record industry after it was released in November 1962, and I had to buy it.
Just one year later, the album didn't seem very funny. After November 22, 1963, I don't think that I ever played it again.
