Big Ten Football: Michigan Wins But …

The Leaders and Best are back. The defense is suffocating, the offensive-line is pushing people around, and the defense… Man oh man, that defense. Oh, and Jim Harbaugh is sparking a resurgence in the local economy. Pump the brakes. Yes this Michigan team looks better. There is no doubt that it seems to have an identity and is playing with more of a purpose than most recent years...

The Iowa Hawkeyes make a Statement in Madison

Iowa has been in football purgatory for the last decade or so. Aside from 2009, it’s been much the same story of inconsistency, suspect quarterback play and news of the weird off the field — most notably with the running back position. Fast forward to 2015, and things looked to be much the same. 2014 was disappointing, and there weren’t too many reasons anyone in their right...

Michigan Football report card: Grading the win over BYU

Heading into Saturday’s match-up with Brigham Young, Michigan was 1-9 in their last ten meetings with ranked opponents. Let’s make that as convincing a 2-9 as humanly possible. The Wolverines dismantled BYU in a manner they’d yet to dismantle anyone thus far in 2015. Again, the defense was phenomenal, and the running game showed even more progress, but there’s really no...

Michigan remains a fixer-upper in wake of loss to Utah

It was hard to see the reality through all the Jim Harbaugh hype these past few weeks leading up to a highly anticipated game at Utah, but as the dust settles the next day, Michigan fans depart Salt Lake City a dejected people. Utah defeated the Wolverines 24-17 Thursday night at Rice-Eccles Stadium in front of the largest crowd in Utah history (47,825). There were interceptions...

Michigan QB Jake Rudock’s Wikipedia Page Doctored To Reflect Poor Outing

It’s been a tough night for Michigan senior quarterback Jake Rudock, who transferred in from Iowa ahead of the 2015 campaign. The former Hawkeye, starting in his first game for the Wolverines, has completed 21-of-35 pass attempts for 203 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions – the most recent of which sealed the game for Utah. Apparently, his performance was bad enough...

Harbaugh named starting QB but won't announce it

The biggest question surrounding Jim Harbaugh’s coaching debut at his alma mater is which quarterback will lead the Michigan Wolverines against the Utah Utes, but don’t expect an answer until Thursday night. According to MLive’s Nick Baumgardner, despite the depth chart not designating a starter, Harbaugh has told Jake Rudock and Shane Morris who won the competition. Harbaugh...

Iowa football: Should Jake Rudock be benched?

C.J. Beathard may see the field more next week after Rudock’s bad play last week. After the offense has struggled immensely in the past three games, does the Iowa football team need to change their starting quarterback? Iowa’s starting quarterback right now is Jake Rudock. He was sort of an enigma with Iowa fans at the start of the season. He played decent last year for a first...

Iowa football: Preseason depth chart analysis

Yes, Jake Rudock is still the starter on the preseason depth chart. No I don’t expect that to change. Iowa recently just released their preseason depth chart and while there aren’t too many surprises, it is worth taking a look at. A lot can change after August practices and probably more than one player will impress coaches enough to unseat someone ahead them. Here is the offense...
