Michigan will take on Louisville tonight, looking for the school’s first national title since the Wolverines knocked off Seton Hall in overtime in 1989.

A good number of Michigan fans have taken to using Vine to make short videos during this NCAA tournament run. Michigan’s basketball team (@umichbball) is leading the way with a number of insider videos. What is Vine?

Tonight’s the night when Michigan aims to win its first national championship since Glen Rice shot the Wolverines to the top in 1989. Gotta start daily link there.

You know it’s spring when the school mascots are getting reps with the football team. At Ohio State, Brutus even lined up at quarterback during a recent fan appreciation day.

The Illinois baseball team will wear special stars and stripes jerseys vs. Northwestern on Sunday, April 28, as part of the second annual “Honor and Serve Day” at Illinois Field. According to the FightingIllini.com release, the event is designed to honor University of Illinois student veterans and all of America’s heroes, and to serve the Champaign-Urbana community.
