This is bad news, obviously. Compher has been a huge part of Michigan's success and was presumably a large part of Team USA's plans for the World Juniors. You hate to see a kid get injured, but this piece of news is better: Compher's teammate, Tyler Motte, told me J.T. sustained a broken left foot and will be out possibly 3-4 weeks. #wjc
I have to say, Michigan is having two of the worst months of sporting results in recent memory. Losses, both on the field/court and off, injuries and the whims of 17 year old kids have been cruel to us. It is the exact opposite feeling during and directly after Notre Dame Weekend. Welcome 2014, bring good times with, please.
