BEST OF MAXIM
Michigan quarterback Denard Robinson reflects upon his team's 41-14 loss to Alabama in the Cowboy Classic. **With Video**
This may just be a shock to everyone, but players for the Michigan St. Spartans do not like Michigan. I know, just a crazy revelation. A few Spartan players let anyone who followed them know about it during the Michigan/Alabama game. Many of them cracked jokes and ripped on Denard Robinson, as the Crimson Tide [...]
THE RICH GET RICHER
Entering this weekend’s mega-showdown that wasn’t between Alabama and Michigan, there were plenty of stories that captured the attention of college football fans. How would Nick Saban’s defense handle Denard Robinson? How would Michigan hold up against the Crimson Tide’s running game? How much would Floyd Mayweather lose betting on the Wolverines? Wait, what? Oh yeah...
While it is still very early in the college football season, after the first weekend of local Big Ten play, it’s clear another new Heisman Trophy contender may have emerged from the state of Michigan. Friday night in a nationally … Continue reading →
And who could blame him. If the Wolverines are to have any chance in this game Denard Robinson will have to account for about 400 yards.
Good luck Wolverines.
Michigan’s anticipated 2012 season opener against Alabama finished with a giant thud as the Crimson Tide rolled in a 41-14 win.
Denard Robinson was average at best in this game going 11 for 26 with 200 yards, 1 touchdown but 2 interceptions one of which was returned for a touchdown. Robinson also rushed for a touchdown getting Michigan on the board second quarter.
By that time...
ARLINGTON, Texas Alabama's 41-14 rout of Michigan Saturday night came in a game called the Cowboys Classic.
The classic part of the title is debatable unless you were pulling for Crimson Tide. If that was the case, the game was all kinds of classic.
It was a classic tail-whipping.
It was a classic mismatch of the defending national champion and a Michigan team that looked...
Michigan looked like they showed up ready to play against the defending National Champions. Alabama got the ball first but went three and out and it looked like Michigan would put up a fight. Michigan and Denard Robinson got a first down on their first series but then they gave the ball back to Alabama and it was all downhill from there.
On their first scoring drive, the Tide used...
They must have been overrated.
On a hand-wringing Monday morning, that is the most prevalent post-game analysis for the whipping Michigan took at the hands of the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday.
The pre-season pollsters simply got it wrong. For all the hype the flash and burn spread offense and talent of quarterback Denard Robinson, and the supposedly strong secondary these...
With Alabama's 232 yards on the ground to Michigan's 69 Saturday night, it was clear that the run was what made the difference in the Crimson Tide's 41-14 routing of the Wolverines in the season-opening showdown. And, oh yeah, stifling dual-threat Denard Robinson helped, too. Laken Litman and Erin Hartigan sit down to dissect.
There’s no easy way to start this article, if only because there’s no easy way to write about the Alabama Crimson Tide at this point. For years now, we’ve known Alabama to be the bigger, more talented and better coached team pretty much every time they take the football field. And Saturday night, against Michigan was just the latest example of that.
The first Saturday of college football made me look like a genius.There were three dual-threat quarterbacks I was very intrigued about, none of which have the name of Matt Barkley.But all three I correctly predicted their play.First off was Braxton Miller. As soon as Urban Meyer went to Ohio State to coach, I immediately thought Miller could emulate Tim Tebow in the Florida offense...
Whitewash in Stillwater
Poor Savannah State. The Tigers from Savannah, Georgia, a small school in the MEAC conference, were totally outmatched Saturday night against Oklahoma State. The Cowboys, who had some questions coming in after a season that got them to the Fiesta Bowl a year ago, demolished Savannah State 84-0. Yes, 84. Let me put that number in perspective.
