- Louie Caporusso was named the hockey team’s MVP at its awards banquet on Saturday. Chris Summers was named the captain of next season’s team at the banquet as well. Alternate captains will be announced in the fall.
- Unlike the weather in Michigan today (April snowstorms are just so much fun), the early forecast for Saturday’s spring game looks pretty good. Right now it is supposed to be a high of 51, sunny, and a 0% chance of precipitation. If Michigan is going to hit its goal of having 40,000 people at the game, the weather will have to be good. If the forecast turns out to be accurate, you can’t ask for much nicer weather than that.
- The final list of alumni flag football game participants isn’t out yet, but here are seven more names to add to it:
Zia Combs – CB, 2001-02

Clint Copenhaver – LB, 1995-98
Markus Curry – CB, 2002-04
Allen Jefferson – RB,1987-90
Brandon Williams – CB, 1999-2002
- Artis Chambers, who left the football team after the season, is transferring to Ball State.
- Michigan released a promotional video for 2009-10 basketball season tickets.
- Devin Gardner’s announcement press conference can be viewed for free on GBW.
- The Michigan men’s gymnastics team won a share of the Big Ten championship.
- Michigan Football Saturdays has a rundown of the 2009 spring media guide.
- Remember Justin Siller, Purdue’s third-string quarterback who lit up Michigan’s defense last season? Well, he has been dismissed from the school for violating academic policy. If he wants, he could return after the 2009-10 academic year.
- If this story about Michigan fans cheering for MSU describes you, then please don’t call yourself a Michigan fan anymore. The amount of Michigan “fans” cheering for MSU makes me sick. Do you think Michigan State fans would cheer for Michigan if we were in opposite places? There is no way they would. Mark Dantonio needed Michigan to beat Ohio State for MSU to have any shot at the Rose Bowl. You know what his response was when asked about the game? “Go Bucks.” Tonight, Go Heels.
