Michigan football spring game quick thoughts

CFB AM: Michigan WR has perfect way to fire up crowd before punt

There haven’t been many moments of joy for Michigan this season. The Wolverines are 3-4, and it’s been all but decided – in the public anyway – that head coach Brady Hoke won’t be back after this season. Athletic director Dave Brandon could be on his way out, too. So excuse Dennis Norfleet if he’s going to try to have a little fun on a football field again. Last week...

Michigan 18, Penn State 13

Schedule all night games from now on! A gutsy performance for an obviously hobbled Devin Gardner was the difference in this game.

The Michigan Minute: Will The Wolverines Win Another Game In 2014?

The difference between the Michigan teams of old and this Michigan team came out in one play on Saturday.  I’m not talking about the “catch that was not a catch” controversy, as that play clearly changed the game.
