Sort of OT, since Men's Rowing isn't a NCAA sport, but it's still always nice to recognize people on campus who exemplify what it means to be "leadsers and best."
To those who aren't aware, Men's Rowing is a club sport on campus, and so they don't benefit from having full AD support. These student-athletes (many of whom are in the College of Engineering) pay to play; and really play for love of the game (since I doubt many people would willingly pay to work out at 5am everyday unless they really love it). At the head of this machine is a man I have come to know and respect, Gregg Hartsuff, who has really gone above and beyond to create a serious contender despite scholarship and recruiting limitations. He has been awarded USRowing's Man of the Year award for his efforts growing the sport on campus and across the country (playing an instrumental role in founding the Collegiate Club National Championships), coaching the United States to gold in the most recent World Universities Games, and just being a mentor to countless of Michigan men and women who have walked through his boathouse doors.
And to boot, Michigan currently enjoys a 19-regatta winning streak against OSU, including a clean sweep of the Buckeyes this past week.
