"Coach Mattison told me what the Ravens were about, what he thought," Beyer said. "He definitely encouraged me. I hold his opinion in high regard."

Glad you posted the Daily Illini link, because they were the ones who broke this story.
Taylor Gleason, by the way, was originally committed to Michigan. She switched to Illinois after Borseth returned to Green Bay (after Bollant left for Illinois) and Barnes Arico was hired at Michigan. Ironically enough, she's now transferring to Oakland, where the previous coach was fired after allegations arose accusing her of player abuse.
There have been a number of abuse allegations in women's basketball lately, including at Wichita State, where about two dozen players have transferred out over the course of 7 seasons. The head coach there somehow survived the latest, well-publicized allegations, so I'm not entirely convinced Bollant is a goner.

1st tiebreaker is head-to-head but only within the conference schedule, so the loss to MSU doesn't count. 2nd is winning % against common opponents within the conference, and Michigan has the edge there. See this.
Michigan will play Indiana in the opener on Wednesday.

Yes, Lamb is strictly a pitcher now. That's where his future is, potentially, in the pros, so it makes sense for him to concentrate on that. Plus, he had his fastball up to 93mph in the runup to the season, with the expectation that it would go up a few more mph in warmer weather. Bakich has said that Lamb could eventually be a starting pitcher at Michigan.
Unfortunately, Lamb hurt his arm during the Kansas series and hasn't pitched since. I haven't heard anything on his possible return.
Injuries have really hampered the team this season. It was good to see Travis Maezes return to the lineup in yesterday's game. Evan Hill, who tore an ACL in the fall, is expected back in the next couple of weeks. It would certainly help to get him back in the starting rotation (assuming he can return to his previous form).

Minor correction on the correction: Brown's first name is spelled Demetrius.
EDIT: From the Bentley archives, it appears Brown wore #6 in 1987 and 1988, before switching to #7 the next year (when he didn't start). Are you sure he started any games wearing #7?

These visits are hardly unusual. I've seen numerous reports over the last few weeks of players committed to one school taking official visits somewhere else.
Why do they occur? How about a once-in-a-lifetime chance at a free, 48-hour visit to a college campus where you're treated like royalty?

Bando, you are correct about the 1971 game. Although it was not televised by ABC, the game was televised, via closed-circuit TV to Columbus. Proof comes from the November 19, 1971, Ann Arbor News:

That's not all he did. How about bringing the San Diego Chicken and the Clydesdale horses into Michigan Stadium? It wasn't Michigan football alone that filled the stadium.
In the Flyover thread, you specifically railed on Brandon for turning Michigan football into a carnival. Here's Canham in his own words (from a Daily article):
My point is that if Canham were in charge of the AD today, he'd be doing many of the same things that Brandon and his staff are doing. This is a different era. And there are dozens more things people can chose to do rather than go to a football game. Plus, all the games are now on TV, whereas in Canham's days few were, so if you wanted to actually see the games, you had to go to them.
The bottom line is that Canham did all kinds of things to fill the stadium, yet any little or not-so-little change that Brandon makes or any new event he tries is instantly attacked by people on this site.

I would agree that no current college coach should be allowed to coach any of the USA teams (or foreign national teams either). But more than one basketball recruiting analyst has commented today that other college coaches have, while on the recruiting trail, expressed their unhappiness with Krzyzewski coaching the national team. Here's one take, from Brian Snow:
|36 weeks 3 days ago||The proposed solution to the||
The proposed solution to the problem doesn't seem to go far enough. Using amateurs instead of pros in international competition is fine, but there needs to be a further step: banning current college coaches from coaching those teams. Why should a select few college coaches get that sort of access to top prospects? It clearly gives them an unfair recruiting advantage.
