The Michigan Wolverines held their annual spring game on Saturday. Yet, the Michigan football program also celebrated its 2023 national championship as players received their rings.

Michigan football players got four rings total for winning the Big Ten championship, the Rose Bowl, the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, and being the consensus national champs. That's at least my thought on why they got four rings.

What's even better than the rings, is former Michigan football head coach Jim Harbaugh delivering on his promise to get a 15-0 tattoo if the Wolverines won it all and went undefeated. They did that. They pulled it down and on Saturday, Harbaugh followed through with his tattoo.

It was a perfect end to a perfect season for Michigan football.

Michigan Wolverines projected to land Ohio State transfer in hoops

Roddy Gayle was on campus for the Michigan football spring game, which was part of his Michigan basketball visit. Tre Donaldson visited too and he's already committed.

Gayle averaged 13.5 points and three assists for Ohio State last season. He's got two years of eligibility left and was given a transfer portal crystal ball prediction to wind up with the Michigan Wolverines from Davis Moseley of 247 Sports.

The former Ohio State Buckeye made just 28 percent of his 3-point attempts last season, but shot over 40 percent from deep as a freshman. He's also a double-digit scorer in the Big Ten who shot 47 percent overall. Gayle is a shot creator, who can get the rim and shoot from deep. That's an ideal guard for Dusty May and while he isn't Johnell Davis, he might be the next best thing.

Michigan Wolverines get series win over Ohio State

After beating the Buckeyes on Friday on the baseball diamond, Michigan got crushed on Saturday by a score of 11-1. That led to a rubber match for the series on Sunday and thanks to back-to-back home runs by Cole Caruso and Will Rogers in the sixth inning, the Wolverines won 7-5 and took the series. Ohio State had a 3-1 lead before the Wolverines plated four runs and grabbed a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Mitch Voit started the game but didn't earn a decision after leaving in the fifth inning. Jacob Denner came on in relief and earned the victory after allowing two runs and striking out four in three innings of work. Caruso had two hits and three RBI in the win for Michigan. Rogers also had two hits. The Wolverines are 20-21 on the season but 10-5 in the Big Ten. They are tied for the most wins in the league but trail Illinois by three games in the loss column.

Michigan Wolverines softball sweeps

After beating Nebraska in walk-off fashion on Friday, the Wolverines completed a sweep with a 6-5 win over the Huskers on Saturday, plus an 11-3 triumph on Sunday.

Michogan got a three-run from Keke Tholl on Saturday. Ellie Sieler also hit one out of the park for the Wolverines, while Hannah George got the win in the circle after allowing one run on three hits in four innings.


Ella Stephenson led the way in the win on Sunday with a 3-for-4 effort that included two triples, five RBI, and a two-run home run that ended the game in the sixth inning. Lauren Derkowski got the win after a complete game. She allowed three runs on three hits and struck out two. Michigan has won nine games in a row and are 14-3 in the Big Ten, trailing Northwestern by a single game.
