Thoughts on the match:
1. Is there a legitimate competition for starting setter, or was Coach Rosen just trying to give his true freshman setter some experience against an easy opponent? During the game, I was thinking the latter, but after reading Welsh's recruiting profile, I'm starting to think the former. She started in her first game at U-M and got equal playing time with Abbott. She made some mistakes, and every time she came off the floor Coach Rosen gave here some words of advice (something he never did with Abbott).
2. Carly Skjodt made a huge improvement from freshman to sophomore and was an assassin tonight. The last two years U-M suffered from not having a top-notch outside hitter (Knop was athletic but too short to be a dominant player). Skjodt could be the player they need.
3. The Lergs are the Glasgows of U-M volleyball. Jenna is another player that made a big improvement from year 1 to 2. Many of her digs were impressive tonight.
4. Jpnets54 is absolutely right; the Big 10 is insanely tough. Last year 6 Big 10 teams made the sweet 16, and another was knocked out by a Big Ten team in round 2. (Nebraska won it all). U-M can be a good team this year and still finish 9th place.

This shouldn't come as a shock, but the wikipedia page referenced by Dual Threat has incorrect info. According to the official NCAA records (http://fs.ncaa.org/Docs/stats/football_records/2015/fbs.pdf) Notre Dame's all-time record after the 2014 season was 882-310-42 (0.73177). ND did not go 17-3 this year; they went 10-3. Hence, their actual record after 2015 is 892-313-42 (ie 7 fewer wins than Wikipedia says), which means that U-M is closer than everyone in this thread is assuming.
If U-M goes 15-0, and ND goes 10-3, then U-M will pass ND.

In the past 143 years of college football, I can find two instances of this score:

I believe that Michigan will have 22 scholarships to give, not 20 as Brian said, if the three things that he stated occur. I count 77 scholarship players on this year's team (not counting the year-to-year scholarships of Sheridan, Morales, and Kelvin Grady). 12 players have only one year of eligibility left. Then subtract the two 5th-year players who Brian predicted wouldn't be granted a 5th year (Cone and Wright). This leaves the team with 22 scholarships to give for 2010.
Perhaps Brian forgot about the departures of O'Neill and Wermers?
