Notebook: Michigan looks to get Nik Stauskas back on track

Indiana’s ability to take Nik Stauskas out of the game during Sunday’s loss to the Hoosiers has been covered ad nauseam. Now that we know how Indiana went about guarding Stauskas, the natural question is, how does Michigan prevent something like this from happening again? John Beilein said little about implementing any specific strategy to make sure his star sophomore can get...

Michigan Basketball: Iowa preview

The Michigan Wolverines (17-5, 9-1) travel to Carver-Hawkeye Arena Saturday to take on the Iowa Hawkeyes (17-6, 6-4) for the second time this season. The Wolverines emerged victorious in the first meeting, winning 75-67. What have these teams done since then? Iowa has gone 2-2, losing to Ohio State and Michigan State while beating Illinois and Northwestern. Michigan has gone 3-1...

Film Session: Denying Stauskas, Ferrell’s 3s

Yogi Ferrell’s work in denying Nik Stauskas the basketball was a key to victory in Sunday’s 63-52 win over the Wolverines. Beyond Yogi’s ball denial, Indiana’s decision to put Will Sheehey on Jordan Morgan was also key, as it created a situation in which he was free to switch onto more athletic Wolverines on ball […]The post Film Session: Denying Stauskas, Ferrell’s 3s...

Michigan basketball prospects for Big Ten title

Entering Big Ten play, you would have been hard pressed to find even the most hardcore Michigan basketball fan who believed this year’s edition of the squad had a realistic shot at the title. Three teams (Wisconsin, Ohio State, and Wisconsin) were sitting pretty in the top-10 and Michigan had limped its way into the season with an embarrassing loss to Charlotte and a beat down...

Michigan Basketball humiliates Nebraska in 30-point blowout

Well, happy birthday Coach Beilein indeed. Three days following a deflating loss where their sharpshooters could not buy a three pointer, the Michigan Basketball team exploded out of the gate to a deadly start from beyond the arc, undoubtedly eager to move forward following the offensive debacle in Indiana last Sunday. Throughout the hot start, the Wolverines shared the ball effectively...

Recruitaholics: Team 135 Class Rankings

That's a wrap, folks.  The 2014 Michigan recruiting class has come to a close and although small in size, it's thick in talent.  Highlighted by consensus #2 (national) recruit Jabrill Peppers, Michigan met all their needs at four different positions (QB, WR, OL, and DB).  Director of Scouting over at, Scott Kennedy, breaks down what Michigan is getting in this...

Nik Stauskas contributes in other ways than scoring

Before Wednesday’s game against Nebraska, Michigan had lost two of the three games in which Nik Stauskas scored in single digits, including Sunday’s loss at Indiana. After film study, Stauskas understandably could have come out trying to be more aggressive and tried to shoot the Wolverines to victory. Instead, he played the role of facilitator — and Michigan breezed to a 79...

Michigan students to have ‘jort out’ at Wednesday’s basketball game

The Michigan Wolverines are asking students to wear jorts on Wednesday for the basketball team's game against Nebraska. A "jort out" if you will.

Michigan will have open QB battle between Devin Gardner, Shane Morris and others

Michigan senior quarterback Devin Gardner nearly became the second player in school history to eclipse the 3,000-yard mark in a single season. Gardner had games of 500-plus passing yards and 400-plus passing yards in 2013. But Michigan finished 7-6. And, per Michigan coach Brady Hoke, once Gardner is healthy enough to practice in full, he'll be engaged in an open competition...

Brady Hoke: Starting QB Job is Up for Grabs

I watched every snap of Michigan football this past season and I personally felt that there should have been no concrete answer at the quarterback position coming into the 2014 college football season. Devin Gardner is decent, but had done little to convince me that he earned the job for his senior season. Apparently, head coach Brady Hoke is on the same page as me. Per

Brady Hoke says he's making no more staff changes

In early December, Michigan coach Brady Hoke said he didn't anticipate any staff changes heading into the 2014 season. Then, early last month, Michigan did the opposite of that -- firing Al Borges and hiring new offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier. On Monday, Hoke spoke about the staff move for the first time since making the Nussmeier hire, and was very clear about one thing...

The starting quarterback spot will be up for grabs when Michigan's spring practice begins Feb. 25, coach Brady Hoke told multiple media outlets Monday.
