There's such a strong connection, a strong sense of pride to the institution in the state. It’s embedded and ingrained in you at an early age, particularly if you follow sports. And with the performance of the football and basketball teams at the time, it was a natural evolution to envision my college career at U-M.</p> [email protected] (fmarycla) https://www.kines.umich.edu/news-events/profiles/kejuan-wilkins-sm-98 Tue, 23 Jul 2024 12:00:00 +0000 School of Kinesiology What should we call the beautiful game? https://www.kines.umich.edu/news-events/news/what-should-we-call-beautiful-game Sport management professor Stefan Szymanski explains the history of the soccer vs. football debate.
