Spring ball opened for Michigan football on Monday. The Wolverines didn't have an open practice or anything and I don't expect that in the future outside of the spring game.

But, Michigan football posted some highlights from the first day of spring practice and it was great to see the defending national champions in action. Donovan Edwards was shown taking a hand off from Alex Orji, which Michigan fans thought was interesting.

We only saw quarterbacks Orji and Jayden Denegal, not all five. But this was a 45-second video, so I wouldn't read too much into it. Zeke Berry looks healthy and poised for a breakout season. We also got a glimpse of Wink Martindale and Sherrone Moore, as well as new running backs coach Tony Alford. Here's the full video:

There are plenty of questions that need to be answered this spring by Michigan football. However, fans can feel good that Mason Graham and Colston Loveland were shown, because rival fans keep telling us that they are going to hit the portal. Maybe, just maybe, that won't happen (eye roll).

Michigan Wolverines alum makes NBA history

It's not often that someone beats Steph Curry when it comes to an NBA 3-point milestone, but former Michigan Wolverines standout Duncan Robinson became the fastest NBA player to knock down 1,000 3-pointers on Thursday night for the Miami Heat.

Robinson, a former D-3 basketball player, has had an incredible career. He was the Big Ten Sixth Man of the Year in 2018 and helped the Michigan Wolverines reach the Final Four. He's played in the NBA Finals, the National Championship game, and a D-3 national title game.


After struggling some last season and seeing his minutes cut, Robinson has had a resurgent 2023-24 campagin, starting 30 games and averaging 14.3 points per outing. He's making 40 percent of his 3-point attempts which jives with his career average. Robinson has made 2.9 treys per game so far in his NBA career and as long he's making bombs, he'll have a long career ahead of him.
