The Michigan Wolverines celebrated the start of the 2013-14 college basketball season by raising a Final Four banner to the Crisler Center rafters on Friday night. Michigan then went on to a (slightly ugly) win over UMass-Lowell.
Michigan’s previous two trips to the Final Four — in 1992 and ’93 — were vacated as part of the Ed Martin booster scandal. So, this recent trip went into the books as Michigan’s first official semifinals appearance since 1989.
Here’s the video of Michigan’s historic moment:

ANN ARBOR -- If Brady Hoke were the captain of a sinking ship, there's no question he would stay at the helm all the way to the bottom.
Right now, he might be doing just about the same thing.

"I'm going to have to do a better...

We know a good chunk of the 100,000 or 110,000 or whatever University of Michigan fans were probably drunk on Saturday as Brady Hoke suffered his first ever home loss as leader of the Wolverines. It really sounds like Michigan President Mary Sue Coleman was drunk too when she gave this speech.
Coleman was honored for her work before she retires during the Summer of 2014. The University...

The answer is absolutely yes. And who can blame her? That offense could force any Meeeeeeechigan fan to alcohol. After starting the year 5-0, Brady Hoke and his Wolverines have gone 1-3 in their last four, including a stomping at the hands of rival Michigan State and a very uninspiring loss to Nebraska in Ann Arbor Saturday.
Mary Sue Coleman was...

Despite a 5-0 start to the season, the Michigan offense didn’t seem to be taking the next step that many expected based off the flashes in 2012. Devin Gardner was still very hot and cold, thanks in part to inconsistent offensive line play in front of him.
The Wolverines have since gone 1-3, losing to Penn State, Michigan State, and Nebraska. And even more concerning, their...
