Clinton, Rice coming to Ann Arbor; Community High gets national honor; holding our breath for Iowa


Happy Friday!

Who else is loving this cool, fall weather? For those of you attending the Michigan vs. Iowa game at Michigan Stadium on Saturday, be prepared to dress warmer since highs will be in the mid-60s. Despite the forecast, things will be heated on the field since the game is seen as the most pivotal moment of Michigan football's season. No pressure. 

Have a great weekend and Go Blue!
