  • Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts received great seats to the game today in exchange for speaking at the Law School’s 150th anniversary celebration.
  • Jarrett Irons’ favorite memory from the Michigan-Notre Dame rivalry was when Lou Holtz complimented him after he made a tackle.

  • The Michigan Daily did an in-depth piece on the players that came to Michigan from Pahokee, Florida.
  • 200 student seats have been added to section 16 in the lower bowl of Crisler Arena.  Since demand is so high, this will allow more students to sit in the lower bowl rather than be stuck up in the gold level.
  • Michigan plans on presenting the schematic design for the basketball practice facility at next Thursday’s Board of Regents meeting.  If the plans are approved, construction will be set to begin in April 2010 and be completed in October/November 2011, just in time for the 2011-12 season.  The cost of the project is around $23.2 million.

    My closest childhood friend, Denyse Fox Nishio, UMich ’72, UMich Med ’76, flew here from Kawai where she was vacing with her family. 11 hours in the air to Detroit Metro Am thinking she traveled the farthest to cheers the Wolvs today. Can Carl Grapentine mention this during the game? Ann Therese Palmer ND’73, ND MBA ’75
