Mates,

So it looks like those of you who live down south are finally getting some snow.  Its about time and good for you.  Up north we are a little chilly, and they're saying tonight/tomorrow will be well below zero, ambient, with wind chills taking it down to -30.  Must have been blowing through the Troll Center onto our basketball team's shooting touch earlier today.   About to chop wood for the wood stove and eventually have an adult beverage and fire up the BBQ.

I've posted at TTB a list of players visiting Michigan this weekend (LINK). It's not a huge list, but there are a few legitimate prospects. Michigan is trying to have a big recruiting weekend NEXT weekend.

Also, I posted about Michigan's interest last week, but Michigan's coaching staff (Jim Harbaugh, Don Brown, and Matt Dudek) flew to Houston to talk to Rice grad transfer defensive tackle Zach Abercrumbia.

He's 88 years old today. Yes, he's been in a couple movies, but he'll forever be known for, "THIS IS THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN ... WE ARE THE BEST UNIVERSITY IN THE WORLD."
