Melanie Maxwell | The Ann Arbor NewsIt was closer than the final score would indicateUnbelievably, somehow...Michigan outgained Notre Dame in total yardage last night 289-280. But turnovers and 4 for 13 on 3rd downs, killed any Michigan tempo or momentum. It was only a matter of time until Notre Dame started pulling away...which they most certainly did.

Michigan Football spring practice preview: Secondary

Perhaps the unit on team 135 with the best combination of experience and raw talent is the secondary. While Thomas Gordon and Courtney Avery are both lost to graduation, neither were looked at as anything more than “solid” players during their time in Ann Arbor. With two returning starters at CB, and some guys who played a lot at safety, combined with some highly rated recruits...

Does this series have to end?

Does this really have to end? In an era when coaches' contracts have the permanence of takeout food, can't Notre Dame tear up its agreement with the ACC? Do college football fans want to watch the Fighting Irish play Duke or N.C. State, when it means we can't see what we just savored on Saturday night? We may forget the exact score -- Michigan 41, Notre Dame 30 -- but...

Michigan coach Brady Hoke says he has ''no doubt'' running back Fitzgerald Toussaint and cornerback Blake Countess will be healthy enough to start the 2013 season. Toussaint broke his left leg in a game five months ago and Countess tore a knee ligament in last year's opener. Both were able to participate in non-contact drills this spring, but were not cleared...

Team 133 by the Numbers

What numbers stand out to me as the 2012 regular season comes to and end? 8-4 Of course, the record. Many pegged Michigan for, at minimum, 2 or 3 losses. I think 4 is certainly close enough to not make the entire season a disappointment. But those 4 losses came at the hands of teams that have achieved more (and in some cases, much more) success than Michigan has this year. To...
