Big House Blog Claps for the Wolverine Softball and Golf Teams

The Michigan Softball Team advanced to the college world series this weekend by taking Baylor to the woodshed 15-2 in two games. They will take on Alabama on Thursday at 7:00 on ESPN.

The Michigan Golf Team has qualified for the National Championship Golf Tournament that starts today at Inverness Golf Club in Toledo. Here is to the Wolverines getting some "bite" on the greens on a difficult PGA Major quality course.

  • Rich Rodriguez celebrated his 46th birthday over the weekend. For those that wanted Les Miles back coaching the Wolverines. Rich is 10 years younger the Les.

  • Michigan is planning their second annual BBQ at the Big House this weekend. This is another chance for recruits to visit the campus and get a feel for the Wolverine program. Michigan's first summer football camp also kicks off soon on June 14-17. Rivals says: Among those expected to attend include committed linebacker Antonio Kinard, defensive backs Latwan Anderson and Cullen Christian, linebacker Ken Wilkins, offensive linemen Skyler Schofner and Andrew Donnal, running backs Tony Jones and Andre Givens, defensive ends Jibreel Black and Marcus Rush and wide receivers Brandon Ifill and Andrew Carswell. This is, of course, in addition to the majority of the top prospects in the state of Michigan. More news to come on who is attending the BBQ and Camp as we get closer to the events.

  • William Gholston is one of the high profile recruits that has RSVP'd for the BBQ.

  • Evan Smotrycz was pretty much a no name when John Beilein got him to commit to the Wolverines a short time a go. Well, things have changed for Evan in the 2010 player recruiting rankings; Evan starting lighting up camps with some great shooting and some nice low post moves and ESPN recently just put him in their top 100 and all the way up to #47.
