Hitting the Links Comes Back From Down 3-1

Harbaugh Receives Warm Welcome At Indianapolis Camp

This camp featured a quiet cameo by Matt Hasselback.

Michigan Unlikely To Attend Baylor Camp

This is also a good moment to slide Stewart Mandel's always readable Mailbag in; the first few questions are all about Baylor, but it also dips into Muschamp's Gamecocks and the Ohio State-Oklahoma game.

Court Dismisses Charge Against Alex Malzone

No comment.

Michigan's Must-Win Game: Michigan State?

This is a very interesting question to me; which game is more important this year, OSU or MSU? MSU came to mind right away but I think I'd have to say the Buckeyes.

Harbaugh vs. Saban Opinion Piece

I'm including this because it was well-written and measured; Aaron Torres explains how he feels this Twitter feud is something Jim Harbaugh should have avoided.

BSD Film Room: Chess With Fists

Another great film room piece from Black Shoe Diaries. This one also includes football history, which is one of my favorite kinds of history.

100 Teams, 100 Days: The 1922 Season

We'll continue the history theme with this edition of an awesome feature from Eleven Warriors. And yes, Michigan won this year.

An American Rugby League

I'll throw this in; it's another feature I enjoyed from the Players' Tribune.

And finally, we'll close with a softball piece. Sierra Romero won National Player of the Year this week, and while I could have written up a piece on it (plus, it's hard to sing enough praises about the job she's done here), it wouldn't have topped this very sturdy recap by the Free Press.
