I have a Michigan Basketball signed by Tommy Amaker back when he was still our coach. It's been displayed in my office ever since.
|1 week 3 days ago||Official Visits?||
Is there a limit on the number of players that a school can host on official visits?
Is there any rule prohibiting a visiting player from partaking in a school sponsored camp before, during or after said visit?
Could Harbaugh offer official visits to 50 under the radar type kids, from say Georgia, and have them attend camp at Michigan?
If the answer to the first two questions is no, I could see this as being a way around the satelite camp ban as official visits can now take place in June.

the arm's race and the money being spent is getting stupid.
|1 week 3 days ago||Official visits||
If official visits in April- June get approved, and camp can only happen in June, can a school issue 100's of invites to out of state players for official visits with the visits happening the same time you're running a camp? In other words, can Michigan offer official visits to 50 kids from Georgia and while they're visiting participate in one of Michigan's camps? Kind of like a sattelite camp on your own campus. Is there a limit to the number of official visits you can host during the year?

I was in England a couple years back and got a rental care for a few days. Most of the rentals over there have manual transmissions (its been many years since I drove a stick shift, but I owned a couple of stick shift cars in my younger days so I didn't think it would be an issue.)
When I picked up the car from the rental agency it had been backed into the parking space, so when leaving I just drove straight out without having to put the car into reverse.
Things were going as well as can be expected when driving in England (wrong side of the road, shifting with the left hand, all the stupid round abouts, the narrow roads, etc.) until I pulled into a parking spot then tried to leave - I couldn't get the car into reverse!
The top of the stick shift had the shift pattern imprinted on it, but it still couldn't get it to work. Ended up having to put the car into neutral and push the car out of the parking spot. Ran into the same problem a few more times where I need to back up but couldn't get the car into reverse.
I eventuall had a local that I knew take a look at it. He couldn't figure it out at first, then after the two of us talked about it for a while realized that you had to pull up the boot around the base of the stick shift at the same time you were shifting into reverse. Worked fine the rest of the trip!

I thought I'd heard years ago that the cheer "Go Blue" originated from the Spring Games when fans would cheer on the starters, or blue team. Did you come across anything indicating that's true and when it started?

3 kids from Virginia on that list. What's the story with that?

Because I'm slightly superstitious when it comes to Michigan sports I'm going to predict that Oregon wins - then hope, pray, and cheer like mad that Michigan wins.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||If Michigan can keep playing||
If Michigan can keep playing like they have the past few weeks they could definitely make a run. However, I'm very worried that there will be a huge emotional let down this week now that the events of the plane crash and tourney title have passed. I think it will be very hard for the team to get back to the emotional level that they had during the BTT.

|6 weeks 4 days ago||Pep Band Question||
The reports about the plane crash yesterday stated that the basketball pep band was on the same plane as the team. I noticed that there was a Michigan Pep Band at the game today. I would assume that their instruments would have been in the cargo hold along with the player's uniforms. Anyone have any information on the band that played today? Was it the regular Pep Band, and if so, how did they get their instruments?
I wasn't able to watch the first half of today's game, but did see the second half of the game - but without sound - so, sorry if this was mentioned during the telecast.

Wouldn't listen to his mom. No surprise that he wouldn't listen to his coaches.

My son did this experiment when he was in 8th grade. Tested different bats and the distance that the balls would travel. He did the experiment himself using a batting tee. Hit a number of balls with each bat and measured the distance that the balls traveled.

TV schedules are also hurting attendance. The MSU game was on a Tuesday with a 9:00 PM start. Hard for people that work to go to a mid week game that starts that late.

Voted! Big ten is well represented with three top spots. Need to keep coach B at the very top.

I'm guessing her grand slam in the 2nd was her second at bat. Meaning she batted at least 4 times.
