This was a good weekend for Wolverine fans. The #1 running back in the country committed to Michigan and the Michigan Basketball Team should be #1 when the polls are released today.
John Beilein's team struggled a bit with Purdue on Thursday but got a nice win on the road at Illinois on Sunday evening. Any Big Ten win on the road is a good win and we will take the 14 point win in Champaign last night. I really don't like the target that being #1 inherits but I do love that Michigan Basketball is back and fun to watch again.
Here is the last time you will see Denard play in the winged helmet.
- As I predicted Durham Smythe committed to ND this weekend. So I expect Michigan is done with the 2013 class and will hold the last spot. Will there be a mystery late offer?
- There has been some internet buzz that Michigan commit Henry Poggi was on an official visit to Alabama this weekend. This has come up a couple time and Henry's dad is a coach and was down at Bama for business and Henry came along. Per the internet, Henry let the Michigan coaches know what was going on. I hope he was just tagging along with his dad and not having second thoughts. His dad was adamant that this was just a business trip a few weeks ago.
