Last week in The Big House, Michigan was ambushed by a way overmatched and historically, well not that good, Akron Zips football team and Blue was very fortunate to have pulled out the 28-24 victory at home.
Now, going on the road for the first time in 2013 to face a UConn Huskies team whom by many accounts was also considered to be not that good, left followers of the Maize and...
Considering that the Michigan Wolverines and San Fransisco 49ers coached by Brady Hoke and Jim Harbaugh respectively, underperformed considerably this weekend, and, as a result of some recent comments from the Wolverine nation being posted around the inter-webs as a result, we want to know:
If anything was possible…Who would you rather have right now as coach of the University...
After our scare last weekend in The Big House against Akron, I’m pretty sure that Hoke and his staff have been putting the team through the ringer in practice this week. And as a result, we shouldn’t see a sloppy performance this Saturday in the first road game of the year for the Maize and Blue when they travel to Connecticut to take on the Huskies in primetime...
If you watched Michigan narrowly defeat Akron last week, then you saw more of the same on Saturday against UCONN. The Wolverines made it through their first road test of the season, beating the Huskies 24-21. Despite improving its record to 4-0, Michigan has a lot to work on after the past two performances. Luckily for them, they have a bye week coming up before Big Ten play starts...
Many people, myself included, expected Michigan would shake the dust off from last week’s closer than expected win and flex their muscle at the expense of the UConn Huskies. Instead the Wolverines turned ball over 4 times and had to scratch and claw their way to a 24-21 victory over Connecticut.
The comedy of errors was reaching epic proportions early in the second half as the...
Michigan is 3-0 and ranked 15th in the country. UConn is 0-2 and has very much underwhelmed so far in 2013. But tonight, the two teams appear to be pretty evenly matched in a great game at Rentschler Field.
The Huskers had a 21-14 lead in the fourth quarter, but Michigan just stole all of the momentum with a serious interception off of Chandler Whitmer. Linebacker Desmond Morgan...
It was not an enterprising, well-to-do Michigan fan behind the "Go Blue" skywriting, but actually the Wolverines athletic department itself.
Fitzgerald Toussaint ran for 120 yards and two touchdowns, Desmond Morgan made a one-handed interception in the fourth quarter that swung the game Michigan's way and the 15th-ranked Wolverines dodged another upset with a 24-21 victory against Connecticut on Saturday night.
A week after Michigan needed a last-second stand to hold off Akron, Brendan Gibbons kicked a 21-yard field...
