  • The Michigan soccer team will play at Indiana in a Sweet 16 matchup as part of the NCAA Tournament tomorrow night. Michigan got to the Sweet 16 by beating UC Davis 2-1 on Tuesday. The Wolverines beat Indiana on the road earlier in the season but lost to the Hoosiers in the Big Ten tournament. Both games produced a 1-0 score, so the Sweet 16 matchup will likely be close as well. If the Wolverines beat IU, they would play UC Irvine or St. Johns in the Elite 8.
  • Michigan will host Savannah State in basketball at 2 p.m. ET on Saturday. The game will be streamed live on the Big Ten Network’s website.
  • Michigan is going to play in the College Hockey Showcase tonight and tomorrow. Tonight they will play at Minnesota, and the game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network at 8:05 p.m. ET. Michigan will then play at Wisconsin on Saturday at the same time. The Wolverines are heading into these two games on a losing streak after they were swept by Miami (Ohio) last week, so hopefully they will bounce back and pick up at least one win.
  • Former Michigan and current Louisville defensive coordinator Ron English is reportedly a candidate for the San Diego State and Eastern Michigan head coaching jobs. Former Michigan quarterbacks coach Scot Loeffler and former Michigan wide receivers coach Erik Campbell are also reportedly candidates for EMU job.

    The fact that three former Michigan assistants are in the running for the EMU job should come as no surprise considering Lloyd Carr is helping Eastern Michigan with their search. English, Loeffler, and Campbell were all on Carr’s staff before he retired, so I’m guessing one of them will be on their way back to Washtenaw County.

  • The Blog That Yost Built has more on Michigan’s most recent hockey commit, Kevin Clare.
  • Varsity Blue has a guide to the Michigan high school football finals that will air on FSN Detroit today, tomorrow, and Sunday (due to a game being shown on tape-delay).
  • This week’s BlogPoll is out.
  • There are many intriguing college football games to watch today and tomorrow, but the one I’m really keeping an eye on is the matchup between USC and Notre Dame. According to BetUS Sportsbook, Notre Dame is a 32-point underdog in this game. Charlie Weis’ job may be on the line, so the Fighting Irish better keep it closer than 32 points. It’s pretty much a given that Notre Dame won’t win, so the thing to watch for is how they play against the Trojans. If they are demolished from the start, I honestly would expect Notre Dame to can Weis, regardless of his reportedly enormous buyout.
