• The countdown to April 17th is getting shorter. Remember, the spring scrimmage starts at 1PM, but the alumni flag-football game will commence two hours prior at 11AM. Gates open at 10AM. MBN will be live in-attendance...look for me!

• Former UM football star Jim Mandich who was diagnosed with cancer in February said in his first interview since be began treatment that things are going well and he's been in good spirits. He said he had a meeting with his doctors earlier this week and the status of his chemotherapy was that things are going well and the treatments are proving to be successful.

Mandich currently lives and works in Florida as a radio sportscaster for his former NFL team, the Miami Dolphins. Check out the whole story here.

• The Butler Bulldogs put up a valiant effort against the Duke Blue Devils in last night's NCAA Championship game, but a last second half-court attempt clanked off the backboard and then off the rim to give Duke the 2-point win. It's clear that someone was able to get Butler's players the official NCAA guide to "How to Properly Demonstrate Losing in the NCAA Tournament".

Beauford over at Maize n' Brew had a very good write up on how this tournament hit a little closer to home for him.

• You have just over 3 hours left to bid on coffee with Lloyd Carr! No really, on eBay...right now! In just one of many efforts by UofM to raise awareness for cancer, albeit maybe the most interesting, you can actually bid on the chance to sit down with Lloyd Carr and have a cup of joe. All of the proceeds of these auctions will go towards cancer research. Thanks for MVictors for the story.
