Michigan grinds out
draw at Bowling Green

Daily Sports Editor
The Chaka Daley era of Michi-
gan soccer continues to produce
positive results.
The Michigan men's soccer
team traveled to Bowling Green
on Monday in hopes of avenging
last year's 2-0 loss in Ann Arbor,
but the Wolverines were forced to
settle for a 1-1 draw after the Fal-
cons found a late equalizer in the
82nd minute.
Senior midfielder Fabio Pereira
netted his first goal of the season
off a 25-yard strike in the 41st
minute, giving Michigan the half-
time advantage. A rebound from
sophomore forward James Mur-
phy trickled back to Pereira, who
struck the ball into the top corner.
"We got a little bit of a rhythm
there at the end of the second half,
and it resulted in a great goal by
Fabio," Daley said. "It was a grind
the rest of the game."
But just as Michigan (1-0-1)
crept ahead, a red card issued to
redshirt junior forward Tyler
Arnone neutralized its positive
first half. A foul-laden prelude to
Arnone's infraction may very well
have been at fault for a question-
able ejection. Multiple Wolver-
ines expressed the feeling that
the head official lost control of the
game early on.
Down a man for 70 minutes,
the Wolverines were still able to
stymie Bowling Green (1-0-1) for
a majority of the match, a credit
to Michigan's back line. Daley

Bartelstein pens e-book on Final Four run


Daily Sports Editor
Following his graduation from
Michigan, former basketball cap-
tain Josh Bartelstein compiled the
80 blogs he wrote over the past
three years into his own personal
book - a makeshift diary journal-
ing his experiences and the pro-
gression of the program.
For months, that's where the
story of the 'Bartelstein Blog' was
supposed to end - on Bartelstein's
coffee table.
But thanks to a chance encoun-
ter between former Wolverine
Zack Novak and entrepreneur
Zack Price, the founder of Blog
Into Book and a Michigan alum,
Bartelstein's blogs, along with a

host of interactivecontent, will be
available to Michigan fans nation-
'We On: Behind the Scenes of
Michigan's Final Four Run' is set
for an electronic release on Tues-
day. For $7.99, fans can purchase
the e-book on iTunes, Amazon,
Kindle or from www.BlogInto-
Bartelstein, who is currently
working for a real estate firm in
Chicago while doing speaking
engagements about creating win-
ning atmospheres, can't help but
laugh at how far along the blog
has come since he was first asked
to write it prior to his sophomore
"It's really surreal to me," Bar-
telstein said last week. "Never in a

million years did I think it would
get to this point where it's going to
be a book."
The book begins with an intro-
duction from Bartelstein, followed
by a forward from Novak, who
recounts his pivotal role in con-
structing the program from the
ground up. It includes details of
the various meetings he had with
Michigan coach John Beilein and
how and why certain program-
related decisions were made.
Passages written by three of his
former teammates - Trey Burke,
Tim Hardaway Jr. and Stu Doug-
lass - come next, before the book
jumps into its central focus: the
2013-14 Final Four season. Each
blog from the year is included
chronologically, interspersed with
new insights from Bartelstein.
But the section Bartelstein calls
the "best part" covers the Final
Four. This section is centered
around a 14-page insert, breaking
the week down "minute by minute
of what happened every day." The
coverage is comprehensive, from
every perspective. Fans will not
only see behind-the-scenes videos
and pictures from the players' and
coaches' vantage points, but from
the eyes of fans in both Atlanta
and Ann Arbor.
"The biggest thing we miss as
players, or even coaches, is we
don't get to experience what the
fans are like during the games,"
Bartelstein said. "We don't get to
see inside the Brown Jug or in the
Diag when we beat these teams,
so to have the videos of (students)
dancing or at the bars - it gives
you any perspective. So while I
give you the perspective of what
we were doing orthe coacheswere
doing, you also get videos of what
the fans were doing during the
games. So if you weren't in Atlanta
or weren't in Dallas, you'll see it
from every angle.
"When you see those things,
you can kind of put yourself back
in the moment. It really gives you
the chills."
Following the Final Four, the
book transitions back into the
beginnings of Bartelstein's blog-
writing career, which began with
the 2010-11 campaign, when a
young, upstart Wolverine squad,
picked by some to finish last in the

Big Ten, made a shocking run into
the NCAA Tournament.
Bartelstein, who said he
wouldn't typically describe him-
self as nostalgic, repeatedly found
himself in awe at the transforma-
tion the program underwent dur-
ing his tenure.
"The coolest thing for me is
going back and reading it and see-
ing how far that we've come," he
said. "My favorite part will always
be seeing how much progress this

program has made.
"It was an amazing stretch of
how quickly it happened and even
crazier to see page by page."
A few months ago, Bartelstein
felt lucky just to have so many
memories bound together in one
place. Now, he's gotten the chance
to dive so much deeper into the
tournament run of his life, while
in the process, experiencing an
entirely different angle. And for
a player that built his reputation

around sharing his inside per-
spective of the basketball program
with the Wolverine fanbase, he's
happyto share one final time.
"It's just everything you could
ever want to not just remember
this year, but remember this pro-
gram and what's happened so
recently," Bartelstein said. "There
are not many books thatcan really
capture a program, written by
players - key players - and this
book is goingto be that."
