Michigan recruit Jabril Peppers shouldn’t be playing high school football

Paramus Catholic’s Jabril Peppers is just too good to be playing high school football. Unfortunately, a buncha schools in New Jersey will have to see him all fall, as he terrorizes defenses as a running back. Oh, he also happens to be the top cornerback in the country too. Like I said, it isn’t fair to the rest of the New Jersey. He verbally committed to Michigan for 2014, and...

Team 134: Is Michigan really back?

This year the question, “Is Michigan really back?” is answered. While Brady Hoke says Michigan never left, the Maize and Blue Nation begs to differ. The dismal Rich Rod era witnessed an unprepared Michigan-football-culture-misfit coach field the worst teams in recent history. Then along comes Brady Hoke, who like Schemblechler, was a “who?” hire.  Then an 11-2 season culminating...

A New Offense in Ann Arbor: Michigan Football Season Preview

Video: Michigan Unveils “New Tradition” For The Big House That Really Lacks Creativity

Michigan Has a Good One in 2014 Recruit Jabrill Peppers

When Michigan received a commitment from the No. 2 recruit in the nation the Wolverines Nation was happy to say the least. The cornerback from Paramus Catholic in New Jersey is going to be a beast in the secondary for the next three years if not four. Lets be real; if he is as good as advertised he'll be headed to the NFL after his junior season. While he is officially...

Cent. Michigan-Michigan Preview

Despite graduating one of the most dynamic players in school history in Denard Robinson, Michigan feels pretty good about replacing him under center with Devin Gardner.

Big Ten Conference preview 2013: Ohio State to win Big Ten but lose in the Big House

Ohio State is the definitive favorite to win the Big Ten Championship, but an unblemished season will be a hard achievement. The Buckeyes have one of the more manageable schedules in the conference, but they still have some difficult games. OSU should beat Cal though it may be a more challenging game than expected with the long trip. There's a good chance that Ohio State will...
