John Beilein nearly didn’t get a stress test. But when he did, the test showed he needed a double-bypass surgery. He underwent a successful procedure on Aug. 6, missing the Michigan men’s basketball team’s trip to Spain as a result.
Seventy-nine minutes into what looked like a routine win for the Michigan women’s soccer team in its Big Ten opener, Indiana notched just its second shot on goal. By the 90th minute, the Hoosiers had broken through twice to tie it up, in an eventual 3-2 double-overtime Indiana (1-0-0 Big Ten, 5-1-2 overall) win over the Wolverines (0-1-0, 4-4-0).
