Video: Michigan “Recruits” An 18 Year Old Fan In An Amazing Edition Of ESPN’s ‘My Wish’

Missouri native Stephen Loszewski, a die-hard Michigan fan, had hoped to play for the Wolverines one day, but his football career was tragically cut short by acute lymphoblastic leukemia.

Ohio State Takes Shot At Michigan In “50 Days To Kickoff” Photo

The two schools have arguably the most intense college football rivalry in the country – “The Game” – and over history, have each produced title-winning teams with regularity. So it should come as no surprise that every once in a while, one likes to jab at the other on social media.  Today, it was Ohio...

Flashback Friday: Appalachian State shocks Michigan

The Michigan Wolverines went into the 2007 season with a #5 pre-season ranking and dreams of a National Championship. Unfortunately for the Wolverines, nobody mentioned this to Jerry Moore and the Mountaineers from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.

Denard Robinson, Michigan fall out of the AP Top 25

The Michigan Wolverines were ranked No. 8 in the Top 25 poll coming into the season. After Week 4, the Wolverines have already watched their names fall completely out of the Top 25 rankings. It probably adds to the discomfort that Michigan State sits ahead of Michigan in the Legends division and at No.20 in the AP Poll with Ohio State six spots ahead at No.14. Whether or not they...

Haze and Blue

Five years ago I would have told you #5 Michigan would have to be high to lose their home opener against FCS Appalachian State. Maybe they were. In an "exclusive interview" with Chat Sports for an upcoming piece on Lloyd Carr's departure from Ann Arbor, a former Wolverines player alleged that nearly half the team was wasted after smoking weed the night before...
