Michigan football at UConn game preview

Last week, Michigan might have gotten the wake up call that it needed when they were nearly defeated by the Akron Zips.

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...

Michigan Football: Aftermath of the Akron debacle

By now, everybody is aware that Michigan Football picked up, what Taylor Lewan called an embarrassing 28-24 victory over Akron on Saturday. The Zips brought a 27 game road losing streak with them to the Big House and were inside Michigan’s five yard line with a chance to win the game as time expired. The narrow victory seemed to magnify Michigan’s short-comings. So what’s the...
