Friday Quick Hits: Getting Ready for the Weekend

  • Michigan plays Bowling Green in hockey this weekend. Tonight’s game starts at 7:35 p.m. ET and will be streamed on MGoBlue. Tomorrow’s game has a 5:05 p.m. start time and will be played at Bowling Green.
  • At 8 p.m. tomorrow night, Michigan and Ohio State will square off in basketball on the Big Ten Network. The 1989 national champion basketball team will be honored at halftime, and Rumeal Robinson was recently interviewed since he is part of the festivities. All I can say is that it would probably be better if Robinson didn’t do any more interviews like this, as some of his comments paint Michigan in a pretty bad light. Yes, we’ve already lived through the Fab Five scandal, but we don’t need to do it all over again with the ’89 team.
  • The head coach of the 1989 team during their tournament run, Steve Fisher, is unable to attend the reunion on Saturday because he is too busy with his own team, San Diego State.
  • Bill Frieder, the coach that Bo Schembechler fired before the tournament in 1989, was not invited to the reunion.
  • Tyrone Wheatley was hired to be Eastern Michigan’s running backs coach.
  • Michigan lost to Michigan State in women’s basketball last night by a score of 41-37.
  • A former Michigan soccer player was picked fifth in the MLS draft.
  • Ohio State cornerback Donald Washington is going to enter the NFL Draft.
  • USC quarterback Mark Sanchez is also going pro, much to the dismay of Pete Carroll, who acted like a douchebag at Sanchez’s farewell press conference.

    LOL @ Pete’s reaction.

    Playing another year at U$C is a “priceless” decision, he says.

    Interesting statement to make when you can actually put a price tag on it- Reggie Bush got $100,000.

    Robinson was probably just telling the truth. If you read what he said he hinted that all schools did this type of thing. College athletics is a dirty business, I know U-M gets off on priding itself as being above this type of stuff, but they are no different than any other school. Hell, he even hinted that Duke did this type of thing as well. That?s just the way it is, fans don?t see any of the behind the scene?s action, if they did they probably would be shocked.

    Yes he probably is telling the truth. When the truth is damaging to Michigan, keep your mouth shut.
