Michigan started preseason practice without suspended players Fitz Toussaint and Frank Clark, and with coach Brady Hoke giving no hint on when either would return.

Hoke announced Monday both will remain off the field for the indefinitely. The...

The Michigan Wolverines launch fall camp on Monday, August 6th, and will square off against Alabama in just 26 days. There is much to be accomplished between now and the game against the Crimson Tide, which will be played at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
One of the top priorities will be to establish some depth along the offensive and defensive lines. Personnel...

Wisconsin and Michigan State have tapped into Ohio's recruiting fields to elevate their programs to the top of the Big Ten recently, but the arrival of Urban Meyer at Ohio State and Brady Hoke at Michigan could jeopardize their progress? We talked to all four to find out what they think.
The Big Ten has been great at producing offensive linemen prospects for he NFL lately. The Wisconsin Badgers are a factory, but there’s also been a bunch in the few year coming out from the Illinois Fighting Illini, Ohio State Buckeyes and Michigan Wolverines.
Who’s the next Jake Long? Maybe Michigan junior left tackle Taylor Lewan.
Part of what makes these o linemen from the...

Joshua Smith, 9, and Dwayne Durant, 10, had a vision. They spent last week running a lemonade stand in their parents’ front yard just like many kids across the country. The profits weren’t going to go toward a video game or sports equipment. Their focus was on the bigger picture. Their revenue was going to be given to the struggling city of Detroit.
The boys’ endeavor...
When it comes to college sports, I root for the Texas Longhorns (family lives in Lago Vista/Round Rock) and my Big Ten favorite Wolverines. In the last few years, with last season as an exception, the Blue and Gold had a rough time in Ann Arbor. Rich Rodriguez could never really get things going at the university. He was as they said "not a Michigan man." I had to agree...
