  • Jack Johnson and Team USA lost to Canada in a thrilling gold medal game, but they still left Vancouver with a silver.
  • Friday’s game against Lake Superior State will be broadcast on Comcast and Saturday’s will be on FS Detroit.  Both are set to start at 7:35 p.m., and Sunday’s start time is still to be determined.
  • Brandon Graham tweaked his hamstring at the NFL Combine and was unable to finish his workout.
  • Graham was recently asked about Rich Rodriguez’s status as Michigan’s coach, and he basically summed up the situation by saying that Rodriguez has one year left to get things turned around.  If Michigan doesn’t start winning next season, chances are there will be a new coach in 2011.
  • Ben Cronin’s spring break will be spent doing relief work in Haiti.

Wednesday Quick Hits: U-M Students Win Silver Medal; Shawn Conway Commits to Michigan

  • Michigan students Meryl Davis and Charlie White won a silver medal in ice dancing at the Olympics, and fellow students Emily Samuelson and Evan Bates finished 11th.
  • Birmingham Seaholm wide receiver Shawn Conway committed to Michigan over the weekend after being offered a scholarship.  Conway, Michigan’s third commitment for 2011, is a definite sleeper considering that Michigan is his only offer so far.  I know many fans out there are concerned over the fact that Conway has flown under the radar so much, but let’s keep in mind that it is only February.  A lot of times players that are sleepers will suddenly jump up in the rankings after their senior year or simply once they gain more attention.  That’s not to say that will for sure happen in Conway’s case, but he has good size and good hands, making it seem like he could be a solid possession receiver for Michigan someday.  For more on Conway, check out mgoblog.
  • AnnArbor.com has a recap and various videos of the Victors Rally that was held on Sunday.  The Wolverine Blog also has a few videos from the event.
  • Coaches almost decided to play Justin Turner and burn his redshirt last season.  Although I imagine he would have helped the secondary, in the long run I think that was a good decision.
  • Brandon Graham’s stock soared after the Senior Bowl, and if he manages to run a 4.5 40-yard dash in Indianapolis like he did in practice recently it could continue to be on the rise.
  • Bill Martin’s official title from March 8 (after Dave Brandon officially becomes the athletic director) to September 4 of this year will be “special adviser to the president.”
  • The USA Today profiled Dave Brandon.
  • Fielding Yost was a curler back in the day.
  • Five Michigan hockey recruits are in Rivals’ top 50 rankings.  Two of them have five stars.
  • I think John Beilein’s expression during the Penn State game last Saturday just about sums up my overall expression for Michigan sports since October.
  • Beilein doesn’t expect Ben Cronin to play basketball again.
  • Michigan has submitted bids to host NIT games for both the men’s and women’s teams.  At this point I don’t think Michigan will even have to worry about hosting anything for the men’s NIT.
  • UM Hoops and The Wolverine Blog put together a two-part Q&A on where things stand with basketball recruiting.
  • Brent Petway is headed to France to play basketball.
  • Former Michigan basketball player Dommanic Ingerson was arrested last week in Oakland after stealing a purse and a jacket from two women and proceeding to swim in a lake naked.
  • George Sisler, who played baseball at Michigan from 1913-15, was elected to the College Baseball Hall of Fame.
  • The Big Ten has hired a research firm to analyze schools that could join the Big Ten.  The initial list included 15 schools.  Texas was not on the list, but you don’t need to really do research to know how big of an impact adding the Longhorns to the conference would have.
  • Michigan Sports Center turned four on Sunday.
