The J. Ira and Nicki Harris Foundation has made a gift of $10 million to the University of Michigan Athletic Department. This contribution, part of the Victors for Michigan Campaign, will provide necessary endowment resources to the football program to help its students excel in the classroom and in competition and support the facilities in the Stephen M. Ross Athletic Campus. 

In recognition of their tremendous generosity, the head football coaching position will now be formally known as the J. Ira and Nicki Harris Family Head Football Coach. http://ldrsnb.st/1c3fU0t

Congratulations to two of our Wolverines, Meryl Davis and Charlie White - they set a record for the highest score recorded in a free skate event, and helped team USA win bronze in the inaugural team skating event at the Olympics in Sochi last weekend! Go Blue!

Shame on the University of Michigan for the censoring of "Honor Diaries."

It's about women's rights.
