Know It All Football:
This is the time of year that college football rarely gets the run it deserves. While we fans are off dancing with hoop dreams and getting warmed up for opening day, our favorite football squad is getting it done in weight, film and training rooms across the country. What happens the next several months, and namely this spring, will set the tone for their success this upcoming season. While some may not get the itch for the pigskin till early fall, we at Know It All Football think that’s hogwash — the itch never goes away! In part four of our B1G spring preview, we take a look at the Michigan Wolverines.
Camp Opens: March 16th
Spring Game: April 13th
The Michigan Wolverines are one of the most intriguing teams heading into the B1G 2013 season. The Denard Robinson era is finally over and the keys have “officially” been handed over to Devin Gardner, who recently received a medical hardship (redshirt) for the 2010 season. Gardner only played 3 games that season before being in...

Michigan basketball player Mitch McGary says Brady Hoke wanted him to join the school's football team.
Once a weakness, the defensive line is now a position of strength for Michigan Football. Thanks to a recruiting emphasis on defensive linemen, the Wolverines have a deep and talented group of players competing for starting assignments. There are so many promising players that there are numerous potential combinations for how the starting unit could shake out.

Michigan Football lost their best defensive player, Jake Ryan, to a likely season ending knee injury. Last year, Ryan, who was injured early in spring practice, led Michigan in tackles (88), tackles for loss (16), sacks (4.5) and forced fumbles (4). Where do things stand in the wake of this most unfortunate injury? The good news is, that linebacker is one of the deepest position...

Spring football is going on. Things are happening. Rumors are swirling. We must discuss them.
Devin Gardner's better-than-expected performance at the end of last season generated plenty of hype going into the 2013 spring session. No doubt, this has helped ease the transition to the post-Denard era of the...
Michigan offensive coordinator Al Borges is having a “fun” spring, evaluating and coaching up the inexperience, leaning on veterans at certain spots. Two underclassmen are providing intrigue at wide out in Amara Darboh and Jehu Chesson.
Well my brackets took a beating and I only have two Final Four teams remaining. The good news is, my team, the Michigan Wolverines, are still alive. It has been 19 years since I have been able to see them play this late in the year. The excitement is pretty high. I can’t wait for the Kansas game on Friday. Go Blue.
As for betting on who is going to win the whole thing based on...
John Beilein and Trey Burke faced the media in the locker room between their various other media commitments to discuss Michigan’s upcoming matchup with Kansas. Watch Michigan’s head coach and All-American point guard in the embedded media players below.

Michigan coach John Beilein (BEE'-line) briefly lost track of how long it's been since the Wolverines reached the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament.
Sixteen years, he said. No, 18. Wait. 19.
He was right the third time, but here's how to make it a little simpler. The Fab Five era of the early 1990s was the last time the No. 4 seed Wolverines (28-7) made it this far...
