TEAMS:
Last season, the Michigan State Spartans wore Nike Pro Combat uniforms in their game against rival Michigan, and while the uniforms were loved by many of the players, fans and alumni didn’t seem entirely too keen on them. The Spartans are once again planning to wear something new. We received word earlier today that we [...]

Michigan Football recruiting update: Denzel Ward commits

Michigan Football picked up their second commitment from the 2014 class on Saturday. Mammoth offensive linemen Denzel Ward (Chicago, Illinois) committed. He joins Michael Ferns as the only other member of Michigan’s 2014 class.2013 commit Logan Tuley-Tillman probably deserves an assist on this commitment as he struck up a friendship with Ward and became an extra recruiter for the Wolverines. 

Order restored: Michigan Football edges past Spartans

Michigan Football restored order in a series that had run amok on them the past 4 years with a 12-10 victory over Michigan State. The win snapped a 4-game winning streak for MSU in the rivalry, gave Michigan their 900th career victory, and brought the Paul Bunyan Trophy back home. I’ll start off by saying I was way off in predicting a 38-13 win. It was tough sledding on offense...

Michigan vs Michigan State 2012 edition

The 23/25 ranked Michigan Wolverines will host their in-state rivals from Michigan State on Saturday afternoon at the Big House. The game has been declared a maize out by the University of Michigan and thus every fan that walks through the turnstiles will receive a maize pom pon. The two teams enter the game on very different trajectories. The Wolverines have found their groove behind...

Michigan State Football: Cooler heads prevail at the end of Michigan vs. Michigan State game

At the end of Michigan’s 12-10 victory over the Spartans, Michigan players were found taunting MSU players after winning their first game against the Spartans in five years.In the video below, by isportsweb’s David Harns, you can see a little bit of the mayhem that went on after the game… What I find most interesting about this situation is that I’m sure the Wolverines won’t...

The Spartans Well-Documented Offensive Woes

The 2011 Spartans were a magical team, getting a quality bowl win and going 11-3 with a legendary finish in a win over Wisconsin. The Spartans defense was also ferocious, and all fans thought although MSU lost some key components on offense, the young Andrew Maxwell and (allegedly) talented Spartan wideouts would fill their shoes nicely. BREAKING: We were wrong. Horribly wrong. At...

Brady Hoke predicts Michigan St.-Michigan to be "bloody your nose" football.

What kind of game does Michigan head football coach Brady Hoke expects Saturday's Michigan State-Michigan confrontation to be like. One thing is for sure is that he expects it to be "bloody." “When you play against spread teams, you’re playing a little bit more of a finesse football game,” he said Wednesday night on the “Inside Michigan Football”...

Michigan 12 – Michigan State 10: Order restored as Bunyan returns

For the past four years the Paul Bunyan trophy has resided in East Lansing. Tonight the rightful owners of this storied trophy have brought him back to Ann Arbor, where he belongs. Michigan State has recently enjoyed the upper hand in the rivalry, though wins against Rich Rod’s inept ‘defenses’ don’t really count in my book, but Michigan has regained some of its swagger and...

Michigan State First Half Thoughts

• The crowd filtered in a little late, probably due to the long lines to get into the sections. The student section, once again failed to fill in completely at all. But noise-wise, easily one of the loudest crowds I've heard here. • The all-important rushing stat, UM 60 MSU 25. The winner in this series has led in rushing 39 of the last 42 games. • Michigan's...

Michigan Wins Despite MSU's Shiny Shenanigans

For the first time in the career of Michigan's seniors they can finally say they've beaten little brother and brought home the Paul Bunyan Trophy after a 12-10 hard fought victory at Michigan Stadium. Usually it's the senior class that keys these types of victories and that's exactly what QB Denard Robinson did as he led an 8 play 41 yard drive to set up the game...

Michigan earns 900th program win with 12-10 victory over Michigan State

Michigan head coach Brady Hoke has certainly done a lot to finally move the Michigan program in the right direction once again. Last season he was able to finally end the team’s long losing streak to Ohio State, accumulating a winning record and ultimately get to a BCS bowl game at the end of the season. Heading into 2012 Brady Hoke surely wants to capitalize on last season’s...

Michigan 12, Michigan State 10: The Wolverines come out smelling like roses

Was it ugly? Gut-wrenching? Should those with weak constitutions have looked away at several points? Yes, but that’s Big Ten football. It’s beautiful in ways, yet powerfully disturbing in others. One of three prime examples of that today was this year’s bout for the Paul Bunyan Trophy. Former Michigan running back Mike Hart referred to Michigan State as “little brother”...

Q&A With MGoBlog

Yes, Michigan. Will Gholston is coming for you. Most of you guys read (and possibly hate) MGoBlog, a Michigan Wolverines blog. Although, I’m a Michigan State fan, I respect this blog and the writer answering these questions, Brian. Without further adieu, here’s the Q&A. Go Green. —————– 1.) Was this season, up to this point, what you expected from Michigan? Fairly...
