After an impressive season opener, the Lions reverted to old habits, losing two fumbles and an interception in last weekend's loss to Carolina. Missed field goals? Rookie Nate Freese had two, which cost Detroit points...

Wolverines smarting after blowout loss

Will Lions' offensive line pick up where it left off last season?

Nothing has changed more with the Detroit Lions over the last year than the perception of the offensive line. A year ago at this time, there was serious concern with an unproven second-year player taking over at left tackle on the quarterback's blind side, a center who some thought was too old and needed to be replaced, not to mention a rookie moving in at right guard. That group...

Regner: Does Michigan really need fireworks to enhance fan experience?

When news broke that Michigan's athletic department is seeking approval from the Board of Regents to have a fireworks show after two football games this upcoming season, I immediately thought, "Man, this means Michigan isn't going to have a very good football team." I wasn't livid at the athletic department or saw this as a desperate move to sell tickets. Instead...

Gwynn's death makes Tigers, MLB reassess use of smokeless tobacco

When I heard about Tony Gwynn's death last month, I thought about a story I had seen on 60 Minutes many years ago. It was about an 18-year-old high school track star named Sean Marsee who had used smokeless tobacco since he was 12. Marsee found a small sore in his mouth, which turned out to be cancer.  Doctors had to remove half of Marsee's tongue. Marsee also underwent...

Tigers discuss which players in clubhouse would make good managers

If you ask the Detroit Tigers if they see any future managers in their clubhouse, you will get two common answers. First, everyone thinks Alex Avila will be good. Second, while they all have suggestions about which teammates would be great skippers, very few of them want to do the job themselves. The conversation started during a pregame discussion with Brad Ausmus. "I can&...
