    University of Michigan Big Ten Tournament Championship Gear is available to order now from Campus Den online and will be in stores soon! Prepare for March Madness and remember this season forever with a T-shirt and hat to commemorate the tournament win.

  • Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament Preview: Michigan and Michigan State

    ...And so, it begins!


    Tomorrow, Michigan Basketball faces the winner of tonight’s game between Illinois and Iowa, the first game of the Big Ten Men's Basketball Tournament. The Wolverines beat Illinois during the regular season, but fell to the Hawkeyes. If they can take down either team in Thursday night's game, they could move on to potentially face Michigan State in a rivalry and semi-final game on Saturday. Michigan will have to take on Nebraska as well before having a shot at the Spartans and the finals. Since 1998, Michigan has made 3 appearances in the tournament finals, with last year’s Championship coming from the 8th seed position. The Wolverines are seeded at number 5 this year. If they can make it to the finals, this will be the second-lowest starting point from which they have made it to the finals, in 20 years. It will inevitably be a long road to the Big Ten Tournament Championship for the Wolverines. Be sure to cheer on the Wolverines with University of Michigan Basketball apparel.

    Michigan State

    The Michigan State Spartans have a much shorter journey to the finals and will face the winner of the Maryland/Wisconsin game on Friday. This is before prospectively heading into that rivalry game with the Wolverines on Saturday. The Spartans have been ranked in the top 3 seeds every time they appeared in the final tournament game since 1998. They won 5 out of those 6 appearances as well. The Spartans are top seed this year and Big Ten Conference Champions. There is still time to stock up on Michigan State Big Ten Conference Championship apparel before it sells out and to get other MSU basketball gear for the rest of tournament season.

    What's Next?

    Keep updated on the Michigan Wolverines starting Thursday, March 1st, and then catch the Spartans first 2018 tournament game on Friday, March 2nd. Keep your eyes open for emails and social media posts for Big Ten Tournament Championship gear for either team, if they make it to and win on Sunday, March 4th. You can find a bracket for tournament play below, and it’s also linked to more information about the 2018 Big Ten Men’s Basketball Tournament.

  • 2018 Big 10 Basketball: Road to the Tournament

    Basketball: Big 10 Conference Regular Season

    Michigan State

    With their win over Illinois, Michigan State has clinched at least a share of the Big 10 Conference Championship. The Spartans need a win tonight against Wisconsin to clinch the full title for themselves. If they lose, however, they will share the Big 10 Conference Championship with Ohio State, and possibly Purdue depending on their game tonight. Michigan State is currently ranked number 2 in the nation and the Spartans are favored for the Big 10 Tournament as well as March Madness. Michigan State Basketball apparel is in hot demand, so get it while it lasts. Be sure to get green and white apparel before the tournaments begin.

    University of Michigan

    The University of Michigan plays Maryland tonight. The Wolverines don't have a chance at the conference championship, but they are looking to gain momentum going into the tournament season. Michigan isn't doing poorly by any means, either. They are ranked 17th in the nation and look to do well in upcoming games. Prep for tournament season with Michigan Wolverines Basketball gear.

  • A Michigan President's Day

    President's Day in Michigan

    Why Do We Celebrate President's Day?

    • President's Day is a federal holiday, officially called Washington's Birthday, and was originally started to celebrate the birthday of our first president.
    • George Washington's birthday was February 22nd.
    • We now celebrate President's Day on the third Monday in February, a day that is typically very close to his birthday.
    • Abraham Lincoln's birthday is close to George Washington's (February 12th), but Lincoln's is not an official federal holiday. Many states still celebrate his birthday along with George Washington's.
    • President's Day is now a holiday to honor all/any of our previous presidents in many states. However, it's up to each state to decide what to call the day and how to celebrate.

    Presidential Facts Related to Michigan

    Gerald Ford

    • Gerald R. Ford is the only president to be affiliated with Michigan.
    • Ford grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan and attended the University of Michigan before heading into politics.
    • Gerald Ford served in the House of Representatives for Michigan's 5th District, for 25 years before becoming vice president.
    • Michigan has never had a native-born son (or daughter) elected president, as Ford was born in Nebraska, and never elected to the presidency.
    • Ford is the only president not elected to office, as well.
    • He was appointed vice president when Spiro Agnew resigned, and then assumed the presidency when Richard Nixon resigned over Watergate.

    Thomas Dewey

    • Thomas Dewey was one of the more successful Michigan-born politicians, though he fell short of the presidency.
    • Dewey was born in Owosso, Michigan and attended the University of Michigan, like Ford.
    • Dewey was the youngest man to ever be nominated by the Republican Party.
    • Dewey is most remembered for the famously wrong Chicago Tribune headline, DEWEY DEFEATS TRUMAN.
    • Unlike Ford, Dewey never served as President, instead, he was a two-time loser in presidential elections, losing to Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1944 and surprisingly to Harry Truman in 1948.

    Mitt Romney

    • Mitt Romney is the most recent Michigander with presidential aspirations.
    • He was born in Detroit, Michigan, but served as Governor of Massachusetts and is typically affiliated with the state, not Michigan
    • Mitt is from a prominent political family in Michigan.
    • George Romney, Mitt's father, served as 43rd Governor of Michigan from 1963 to 1969.
    • Romney, however, lost the 2012 presidential election to Barack Obama.
    • As of 2018, Michigan still stands with the 28 other states in which no president has been born.

    President's Day Sale

    • President's Day sales were not common until the 1980s, but now many retailers utilize the holiday to sell discounted merchandise to their customers.
    • Campus Den is celebrating President's Day, by doing just that. We are offering 16% off the entire site, for one day only, February 19, 2018.
    • We decided on 16% because Abraham Lincoln was America's 16th president, and 1% in honor of Washington just wasn't enough.
