Local Big Ten Review: Though Impressive, Quick Field Goal Won’t Save Michigan’s Season

What can be done successfully at a quick pace in just around six seconds? Tying a shoe perhaps? Not much else, unless you’re the Michigan Wolverines and need to tie a football game. Considering everything that has happened to the Wolverines in 2013, who could have seen a last second fast field goal on a slick field in the rain successfully playing out? After Devin Gardner was sacked...

Michigan 27 Northwestern 19

This game was both beautiful...and very ugly. But most of all, it was a win. Make no mistake, at this point, I'll take it.

Unlikely field goal sparks Wolverines

Every week, like every other football team in the country, Michigan practices a play they almost never use -- getting the field-goal unit onto the field for a kick with the final seconds running off the clock. Saturday, they finally needed it, and as it turns out, it works. Losing 9-6 to Northwestern, the Wolverines faced 3rd-and-23 from the Wildcats 43 with 18 seconds left. They...

Michigan 12 – Michigan State 10: Order restored as Bunyan returns

For the past four years the Paul Bunyan trophy has resided in East Lansing. Tonight the rightful owners of this storied trophy have brought him back to Ann Arbor, where he belongs.
