Diehard Sport’s Michigan Football Season Predictions

Offensive MVP: Jake Rudock or Shane Morris: Whichever quarterback ends up taking the reigns is going to be the MVP for the offense and probably even the team. My money is on Rudock and if he can lead the offense and not turn the ball over, that will be critical. You expect strong performances from Jake Butt and the running game should be improved, but no one else will have the impact...

Starting Michigan CB Channing Stribling Laughing At The Haters

Michigan put out its official depth chart for this Thursday’s Utah game, and there was a somewhat surprising name at one of the cornerback spots. Instead of the expected Wayne Lyons manning the spot opposite of Jourdan Lewis, it will be the 6-foot-2 Channing Stribling. When one fan tweeted that Michigan put out a BS depth chart with Stribling as a starter, the junior had the following...

Previewing The Michigan Offense: Better Than Advertised?

Quarterback is the major question mark right now and Jim Harbaugh has done nothing (yet) to name a starter or indicate whether they might play both quarterbacks against Utah. Obviously, there is no advantage for Harbaugh to show his cards, but I’m willing to bet that Jake Rudock will be the starter. Shane Morris has the stronger arm, but Rudock is far more experienced and more...

Notebook: Lindy’s Sports picks Michigan fifth in Big Ten, Spike Albrecht back on the floor

Three NFL Head Coaches Had Interest In Michigan Job

If there is one thing that we can all agree on, it’s that Jim Harbaugh seems to be the perfect man for the job with the Michigan Wolverines. The former Wolverines quarterback took the job after he parted ways with the San Francisco 49ers following three NFC Championship appearences. Oh, and let’s not forget that Harbaugh also took the 49ers to a Super Bowl. But that’s all irrelevant...

Michigan Loses Defensive Tackle Likely For Season From Freak Practice Injury

Injuries are a part of football, and all players and coaches know that. But when you lose a defensive tackle one week before the season from an injury suffered during field goal practice, that’s going to sting a little more. The Michigan Wolverines could be without one player expected to be in the defensive line rotation this season for a while, as Bryan Mone suffered a broken...

If there is one quarterback competition that has been the most convoluted this offseason, it’s Michigan’s. The Wolverines have a host of quarterbacks to select from.

Michigan Offensive Lineman Kyle Kalis Hints At Who Michigan’s Starting Quarterback Will Be

Michigan has yet to name a starting quarterback. The Wolverines might reveal their starter on Monday when they send their depth chart to Utah, but Jim Harbaugh hasn’t officially decided if that’ll happen.  We think we know who it is, though.  Jake Rudock, the Iowa graduate transfer, took the majority of the first-team snaps at Michigan’s student practice last weekend.

Predicting Michigan 2015: The secondary
