Despite loss, all eyes still on Jim Harbaugh, Wolverines

Well, that was fast. It took exactly one game into the college football season to destroy any maize- and blue-colored fantasies of Jim Harbaugh and his band of merry Wolverines steamrolling their way to the national championship. In fact, one more loss like the one on opening night and it might be considered bad etiquette to even admit that you ever had any hope of them returning...

Report: Jim Harbaugh's 'Summer Swarm' tour cost $211K

Jim Harbaugh’s “Summer Swarm” tour wasn’t cheap, but you have to believe it will pay off in the long run. The new head coach of Michigan’s football program took a tour around the nation this summer, visiting 10 spots around the country in an effort to “teach youth football in these communities,” Harbaugh said back in early June. The tour drew the ire of many other...

Michigan Football falls at Utah to begin Harbaugh era

The Jim Harbaugh era began with a groan as the Wolverines lost 24-17 to Utah on Thursday night. Jake Rudock threw three interceptions and misfired on two deep balls that would have resulted in touchdown passes. Michigan’s running game couldn’t get untracked and the defense was unable to contain Utes quarterback Travis Wilson, who was the player of the game with 208 passing yards...

Utah beats Michigan 24-17, ruins Jim Harbaugh’s debut

The entire Summer was leading up to Thursday night — Jim Harbaugh’s debut as head coach of the Michigan Wolverines. The Utah Utes had other plans, though.

Michigan lost their opener, but showed signs of improvement

Follow TSS on Twitter @TheStudentSect As told to you Tuesday on this site, Jake Rudock started at quarterback for Michigan tonight (or yesterday night, depending on where you’re checking in from, I suppose). Last season as the main man at Iowa, he threw 5 interceptions all of last year. After one game in Maize and Blue, he’s already 60 percent of the way there. Michigan...

Jake Rudock Wikipedia page altered by angry fans

Jim Harbaugh’s debut as head coach of Michigan failed to live up to the hype in a loss at Utah on Thursday night, and turnovers by the quarterback were a big reason why. Graduate transfer Jake Rudock threw three interceptions including a pick-six in the defeat, and that left fans livid. Some even took to altering his Wikipedia page by calling him a “turnover machine.” Rudock...

Report: Brady convinced Harbaugh to return to Michigan
