Unranked Michigan played 1 loss Wisconsin who is #3 in the country in Wisconsin last night. Michigan has not won a game there in 11 years and has not won a away game vs. A top 5 opponent in a half a century! We’ll that changed last night when Michigan rallied quick and led by 5 going into half-time. Then Michigan went up as high as 15! Then Wisconsin made a come-back and rallied to bring the lead to 1 after a Ben Brust lay-up. Wisconsin may have been having a flashback to last season when Brust made an impossible half-court shot vs. Michigan in Wisconsin. That was the past and the big-blue came up the court and superstar Nik Stauskas did a crossover and dribbled backwards and hit the game sealing 3. Michigan won 77-70. Stauskas had 23 points an the GW three. That win should boost the BIG-BLUE! higher in the rankings and push the Badgers back-wards. In the Ausi (Australian Open), #1 Serena Williams was knocked out and was battling an injury that showed to her play , she was defeated by Ana Ivanoic. Ana had a awesome match. In the NHL we saw a game when 2 players earned themselves a hat-trick in the same game (Joe Pavelski and Martin St.Louis). Also in the Canucks vs. Flames game, both teams put on 4th stringers and...Read More
The Browns are the line team left without a head coach. Yesterday the Vikings hired defensive mind Mike Zimmer. He was the Defensive Coordinator for the Bengals who were great on D in points allowed and interceptions. Minnesota on the other hand, was the opposite of that. He’s coached in college on D from 1979 to ’93. In the NFL he coached the Cowboys from ’94 to ’06 as a DC and a DB coach and won a Super Bowl. Then he was a DC with the Falcons in ’07 and Bengals DC to last season. The Vikings have the 8th pick of the draft. Now the Browns are the lone team without a coach. Who will they pick? The Patriots reported some unexpected news yesterday, backup QB Ryan Mallett was taking 1st team reps because Tom Brady was sick. Look for him to be back next practice. Tennis: wow it is hot at the Australian Open, it was 107 degrees there! We saw some big wins go to the favorites today. Probably there will be the same temp today. In the NBA we saw something very weird. The Wizards beat the Heat! The Heat lost by 17 and were down by as much as 34! Yes, the Wizards are a bad team but they did not play like it. The Heat are on a 3 game losing streak...Read More
