Throw The Flag:
The Michigan Wolverines are trying to vanquish an SEC foe in the South Carolina Gamecocks. To do this, they had to pull out all the stops and use trickeration. It was 4th and 4 and the kicker went running off to the other side of the field. Steve Spurrier probably should have called a time out but let the play develop anyways. Brady Hoke chose this play call to perfection. Of course, this fake only led to a conversation and not a touchdown, it was none-the-less amazing. Well played Wolverines.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
After a questionable decision by Michigan to go for it on 4th down from their own 35-yard line, after they blocked a field goal, things got even more ridiculous. Michigan was short of the first down by a few inches, and the referees said that it was a first down. South Carolina Gamecocks Head Coach Steve Spurrier freaked out and challenged the play. The play stood as called...
Good news, Outback fans. You will either get a free blooming onion or coconut shrimp depending on who wings. You’ll probably read that last sentence and think I’m joking. I’m 100% serious. The Michigan Wolverines and the South Carolina Gamecocks are facing off on New Years Day. If you don’t have a particular team you are rooting for, it’s time to make a decision. Are you...
Game time: Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET
Both Brady Hoke and Steve Spurrier are trying to take that last step that will vault their respective programs into the nation's elite. The two coaches look for clues how to achieve that for next season on Tuesday when Michigan plays South Carolina in the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Fla.
No. 19 Michigan (8-4) finished second to Nebraska in...
After Michigan's 33-28 loss to South Carolina in the Outback Bowl, headman Brady Hoke shared his thoughts on the defensive breakdowns, the performance of the offense, the improvements ahead for the program, and more. **With video**
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier announced Saturday both sophomore quarterback Dylan Thompson and junior Connor Shaw are in play to make the start in Tuesday’s Outback Bowl.
South Carolina beat Michigan 33-28 in the Outback Bowl yesterday. The game didn't end without a little controversy from the referee group though, and everybody loves controversy. Other than South Carolina in this case. Michigan went for it on 4th and 4 in their own territory while leading 22–21 in the fourth quarter. The ball clearly came up a couple inches short...
I was going to put my full effort into a preview of tomorrow's Outback Bowl, but when it really comes down to it, tomorrow feels more like an ending than anything else. The the most integral component of the Rich Rodriguez era, and the beginning of the Brady Hoke era, will play his last game for the Wolverines tomorrow afternoon. Rich's legacy at Michigan, for me anyway,...
On the eve of the New Year and the Outback Bowl with South Carolina, Michigan coach Brady Hoke cleared up the Wolverines plan at the quarterback position—while other decisions remain foggy.
It may not have been the back-to-back BCS bowl appearances that Brady Hoke and company had hoped for at the onset of the season, but the Wolverines are, at least, playing on New Year's Day. Michigan and South Carolina will do battle in the Outback Bowl at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN.
It's no secret that the Big Ten has struggled against the SEC, but our staff seems to think that...
Team 133 deserved better.
They deserved to be able to go out with a win against a superior team on the road. They had taken their lumps from the Alabamas, the Notre Dames, the Nebraskas and the Ohio States of the world. Even with a win yesterday, 2012 would've never been remembered as a successful year for Michigan, but an Outback Bowl victory over a favored...
