Michigan is one game from a Big Ten title shot

If you’d have said Michigan would be in position to win a Big Ten title back in August, you’d have been labeled a Harbaugh Happy Homer. The author knows this, because he lived it. Because of it, these are strange bedfellows this college football makes. Michigan will be relegated to “rooting” for arch enemy Ohio State to defeat Michigan State at home so the Wolverines have...

College Football's Forgotten Man Can Knock Off Bama

If you were to wind your clock back almost exactly a year to Week 11 of the 2014 college football season, things would look a little different than they do now. Michigan, who was still very much Harbaughless, was stumbling around with Brady Hoke as their head coach. Whether the Maize and Blue would return to prominence any time soon was in serious doubt. Future first overall pick Jamei...

Michigan RB says Brady Hoke fell asleep on recruiting visit

Michigan fans are pretty happy with the state of their program under first-year head coach and UM alumnus Jim Harbaugh.

Michigan’s D.J. Durkin Named As A Possible Coaching Candidate At Maryland

Michigan’s defense has been outstanding under first-year coordinator D.J. Durkin through seven games. Having already gotten three-shutouts, it should come as no surprise that Durkin’s name is already coming up as a head coaching candidate. Sports Illustrated’s Pete Thamel highlighted all the open (and possible) college football coaching positions, and also gave a detailed...

Michigan, Northwestern take different paths to redemption

A place the Wolverines rightfully belong. But what makes us think this will be different from what Brady Hoke did for Michigan? If we jump in the winged time machine...
