Greilick / The Detroit News) A rivalry 125 years old. The two teams with the best winning percentage in college football. Prime time under the lights. Can’t beat that. It was a fine evening for college football that is for sure. Notre Dame was supposed to be unbeatable. Michigan was supposed to be not as good actually because of this and that. Either way much was on the line for both teams looking to make a statement. What followed, at least for the a Wolverines, was one of the worst first-halves of offensive football witnessed by the human eye. Denard Robinson was not sharp with his passes early even though his offensive line provided him some outstanding protection and plenty of time to sit back in the pocket and survey the field before throwing. Which he did, for a while. The Notre Dame quarterback Everet...

The Week That Was College Football: Week 4

What an amazing season of college football, and we’re not even through the first month. Thus far, we’ve seen two National Championship favorites go down.

Michigan ranked no longer after loss to Notre Dame

Regardless of which major national top 25 poll you prefer to use as your standard for ranking the best of the college football elite (AP Top 25 or USA Today Coaches), this week the Michigan Wolverines will not be found.
