Asthe firstnotes ofTaio Cruz's
"Dynamite" blared inside the
Indoor Track & Field Building
Saturday afternoon, more than
500 students rushed to the stage
and wildly threw their hands up
in the air amid a flurry of flashing
lights.
The scene marked the start of
the 14th annual Dance Marathon
at the University, which is one of
the largest student-run organi-
zations on campus. Beginning
Saturday morning and culminat-
ing Sunday evening, hundreds
of students danced for 30-hours
straight to increase awareness
and raise money for pediatric
rehabilitation programs at the
University's C.S. Mott Children's
and Women's Hospital and Beau-
mont Hospital in Royal Oak.

ST. LOUIS -
Fifteen years ago, Brendan
Morrison and a support-
ing cast legitimized the
Michigan hockey program once
again by winning the national
title that had eluded the Wolver-
ines for 32 years.
It defeated Colorado College
in dramatic overtime fashion
and became the champions in
1996, pushing earlier disappoint-
ments to the wayside.
Though a few years in the

making,
Michigan
had finally
done it.
"Michi-
gan was
really back
on the map MARK
in college BURNS
hockey," BURNS _
Morrison
said about the program earlier
this week in a phone interview.
"A lot of the years, we were

favored but just couldn't pull out
the big games.
"It was our time. We were
due to win. It was a big relief to
know, 'Hey, you know, we can
win the big game. We are one of
the top programs."'
Press the fast-forward button
to 2011, and these Wolverines
are headed to the Frozen Four
for the first time since 2008, fol-
lowing a 2-1 victory over Colo-
rado College on Saturday night.
But with the date in St. Paul,

Minnesota in two weekends,
Michigan has only one question
to answer: Could this be the
season it, once again, wins the
national title, putting it into the
conversation as being THE best
program in the country?
And, guess what?
Michigan is due for a national
title in the worst way, making
this the year an NCAA Cham-
pionship will finally be brought
home to Ann Arbor.
