Sunday Night’s college basketball bout between the Michigan State Spartans and the Michigan Wolverines will be played at Breslin Center in East Lansing, Michigan. This plays right into the hands of the Spartans, as they are 10-2 at home so far this season. However, this has been an off year for the Spartans, as they generally rank among the Big 10 elite.
Tom Izzo’s squad is 13...
The Detroit Lions and its fans experienced a long period of dark days throughout the 90s where losing had pretty much become commonplace, winning only one playoff game in the entire decade. However, if there was one saving grace for the Motor City during football season back in those times, it was being able to watch and enjoy the greatness that was legendary running back Barry Sanders...
The Detroit Lions will have Ndamukong Suh active when they head into Dallas this weekend to try to take down the Cowboys in the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs. Their star defensive lineman was thought to be lost for their wild card clash due to a one-game suspension, but with his suspension overturned, the Lions will be at full strength heading into Jerry World. That could be...
MSU came from behind and POW! Right in the kisser.

Jim’s not wearing khakis to his own “khaki out.” Feels wrong.

After a nice introduction as Michigan’s 20th head football coach, it was Jim Harbaugh’s turn to take to the podium. He got tripped up on the way:
Most viewers didn’t even see his walk up to the podium and others may not have made a big deal about his little stumble if not for his classic line in owning up to it:
“A lesser athlete would’ve gone down!” #Harbaugh https...
Ndamukong Suh never should’ve been penalized for what happened last Sunday vs. the Packers, but he was — he was suspended for a playoff game — and thus, he was forced to appeal that decision. Suh’s appeal was heard on Tuesday and the decision was made by Ted Cottrell to overturn Suh’s suspension and simply fine him instead.
The gist of it is below:
Suh wins his appeal...

Jim Harbaugh’s press conference is scheduled for noon eastern. Over/under on great Bo lines is set at a low 4.
'I am the man who comes knocking.' Coming September...
Because Jim Harbaugh.
ATTENTION: Any Michigan fans planning to attend tomorrow's basketball game, WEAR KHAKIS #GoBlue #KhakiOut #AnnArbaugh

Jim Harbaugh likes khakis from Wal Mart in case you didn’t know.
@Detroit4lyfe Unsurprisingly, UM/Illinois is this week's most expensive college basketball game...
Ndamukong Suh was suspended for the Lions’ second playoff game in 15 years for stepping on Aaron Rodgers during Week 17. Rodgers was lying on the ground when Suh’s momentum carried him backwards and onto Rodgers’ leg. In real time, Suh appeared to inadvertently step on Rodgers leg with one foot and again with his other, more weight being put on the second step. Here’s how...
Gustav Nyquist decided to take matters into his own hands in overtime on Saturday night, circling the Ottawa zone two and a half times before pulling the trigger and lighting the lamp. The game-winning goal gave the Wings a 3-2 OT win. Henrik Zetterberg tied the score at 2-2 at 16:01 in the third.
The Red Wings are a point behind in the Atlantic.
Obviously, this means he’s going to Michigan. Ann Arbaughr. CoMing HoMe.

Michigan State lost to Texas Southern, a school that has a basketball team. Tom Izzo was displeased to say the least.

Except for your ode to Gordie Howe. That was cool.
The 10-4 Detroit Lions head into Chicago on top of the NFC North looking to get a win and move on to a potential winner take all Week 17 matchup in Green Bay to close out regular season.
The Lions are on a three-game winning streak that started with a 34-17 win over the Bears at home on Thanksgiving Day. Matthew Stafford passed for 390 yards in that game with two touchdown and Calvin...
I very badly wanted Yoenis Cespedes when he came to the States a few years ago and this video is mostly why:
Thank you, Rick Porcello, for your service and that time five years ago when you threw Kevin Youkilis to the ground.
The Detroit Lions aimed for change when they hired Jim Caldwell to be their new head coach this past off-season. With one month to go, change has been enforced and the Lions are still alive for the NFC North title and a return trip to the playoffs.
Of course, the NFC is fairly stacked and the Lions can’t take their position for granted. With so many other solid teams behind them...
7-2 Detroit at 8-1 Arizona.
Only 1 of top 10 TV markets

A shame for such a good game.

As you can see from the map, most of the country will get the game of the week, which is not the Lions...
The Detroit Pistons start anew with head coach Stan Van Gundy, who brings excellent offensive intelligence to the table. It hasn’t shown up yet on the floor with the Pistons, but they still arguably have the talent in place to turn things around and give the playoffs a shot.
Doing so could return killer value for Pistons tickets this year, while Van Gundy’s frantic sideline disposition...
Tomas Tatar scored a game-tying goal with SEVEN seconds left on the clock in the third period on Wednesday night against the New York Rangers.
What’s better than forcing overtime that late in the game? The photobombing Red Wings fan who is taunting the Madison Square Garden fans around him as Tatar celebrates his goal in the background. ******* EPIC.
Try to watch this without your eyes tearing up:
Gordie was able to watch fans give him a standing ovation from his daughter’s house in Texas. His family recorded it for us to see:
Get well soon, Gordie!
The Pistons are back in action, beginning the season in Denver against the Nuggets — and that means Andre Drummond dunks.

Mozgov is getting used to this kind of thing.
Yeah, I know — you already knew that.
The things he continues to do, though…they should never go unmentioned:
That’ll do it.
It's over…RED WINGS WIN, 4-2!!

Michigan Athletic Director Dave Brandon does not look good here. Some people need to re-evaluate their priorities in life. Responding like a smug prick to not-even-what-should-be-considered-hate mail probably falls right below “Pissing and moaning in an email to my favorite team’s AD (or GM or head coach).” If you want to complain about your favorite team all so the head...
Gordie Howe, aka Mr. Hockey, suffered a serious stroke on Sunday morning and his health is reportedly deteriorating. This tough read from the Detroit Free Press:
“I feel like this is his final lap around the rink,” Murray Howe, one of Gordie’s three sons, told the Free Press tonight. “I’m guessing that he’s not going to recover … but then again, he’s about as strong...
