    This kind of behind the scenes stuff is fantastic. It would be great if we could get some features on a couple other players. And is David Merritt working in the Athletic Media department now? I know he does supporting commentary for basketball games on

    I’m liking that hoodie he’s wearing, but something tells me it’s not from the IMU line :).

      Good example of the way the interwebs can stalk you: I placed “Adidas and Michigan” in my Chrome address bar and “hoodie” was the first phrase that popped up. Didn’t no whether to be pleased at its labor-saving facility or go buy that new laptop early.

  • Love this behind-the-scenes look. Would love more in-depth coverage of a game day with a member of the team from get up til post game.

    Thank you, well put together. There was a nice little article in the WNY Catholic on Coach Beilein and the integration of faith into daily life. You have to download the PDF version of the paper and it is on p 7 and 8.

    Nice work. Novak is such a great guy.

    For those wondering if U-M was looking at a 2011 big man… According to this article, Michigan hosted senior Max Biefeldt in Ann Arbor recently. The article says that he’s 6-8. If you go to Rivals, he’s listed at 6-6, and Scout has him listed at 6-7 (not sure when those were last updated). Coach Meyer went to watch his game in Bloomington.

    This article says that sophomore Kendall Stephens has an offer from Michigan and other Big Ten programs. Scout says he’s a 6-5 shooting guard from St. Charles, Illinois..

    Novak is what, 21, and seems like a real leader already.
