From MLive: Former Zeeland High School and University of Michigan football star Jay Riemersma has filed paperwork to run for the congressional seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Peter Hoekstra. Publicly, Riemersma, a Republican, remains unannounced. But undated filings with the Federal Elections Commission declare him a candidate for the 2nd Congressional District. I remember Jay as the ultimate teammate when he was at Michigan. He came to Ann Arbor as a QB and left as an NFL tight end! Good Luck Jay!
- June 15th is Michigan Day on the Big Ten Network. Isn't everyday a Michigan day?
- Michigan looking at offering a state of Michigan punter: Mike Sadler from Forest Hill Northern.
- BTW: I saw an interview with former Wolverine Steve Hutchinson and current Minnesota Viking on ESPN about the Brett Farve situation. He was wearing a University of Minnesota golf jacket. I'm assuming Steve was playing in a charity golf outing and has not become a Golden Gophers fan.
- Picture of new Wolverine Ken Wilkins at his announcement via Rivals. He seems happy to be a Michigan Man!
