February 17-19, 2012: best weekend in Michigan Athletics History?

I know, I know, I'm probably getting ahead of myself. I'm sure many of you are picking National championships that happened on a weekend as the greatest weekend in Michigan Athletics' History, but never in memory has a weekend gone as well for as many sports for the Maize and Blue as the 3rd weekend in February 2012. Let's review:

Ice Hockey: The Michigan Ice Hockey program swept Northern Michigan University, including a thrilling OT winner from A.J Treais in OT on senior night for a 3-2 win. The wins moved Michigan into second in the CCHA for the season.

Basketball: The Michigan Wolverines stayed perfect for the season at Crisler by outplaying Ohio State for the upset win, 56-51. Trey Burke continued his amazing Freshman year season by leading the Wolverines with 17 points, while Tim Hardaway chipped in 13 and Jordan Morgan had the first double-double of his career with 11 points and 11 rebounds, while also holding Jared Sullinger to 14 points on 6-14 shooting. The Wolverines never trailed in the game, and held onto the win with some clutch buckets from seniors Zack Novak and Stu Douglass, as well as a difficult layup late from Trey Burke to seal it. The win put Michigan into 2nd in the Big Ten standings with a very winnable final four games against Northwestern, Purdue, Illinois, and Penn State. If Michigan can indeed win out, they will earn at least a share of the Big Ten regular season championship with one Michigan State loss.

Football: Brady Hoke managed to earn an astounding 8 commitments from 8 four-star recruits for the 2013 class over the course of the weekend. The haul included a staggering 6 commitments on Saturday, with 3 offensive lineman (Kyle Bosch, David Dawson, Chris Fox), 1 RB (Wyatt Shallman), 1 DE/OLB (Taco Charlton), and 1 CB (Jourdan Lewis). Then, on Sunday, Michigan grabbed two more four-stars, one being the fourth addition to the offensive line (Logan Tuley-Tillman), the other being a TE (Jake Butt). In the space of two days, Michigan got more four-stars (according to at least one major recruiting service) than the entire 2012 class combined.

Three Michigan sports programs putting on an impressive display on the weekend of February 17-19, 2012, making it one of the greatest in Michigan history.
