Ohio State is removing the “UM in their OHIO STADIUM sign for the upcoming Michigan game Saturday. There have been cute antics with this rivalry, but this is going to the next level. Ohio State site Eleven Warriors is also reporting that the Buckeyes have taken down all M’s from campus and street signs as well.
To me, it’s an awful lot of effort considering nobody (probably...
File this one in the “you gotta be kidding me” bin. A University of Michigan football fan began a crowdfunding effort on Patronicity.com over the weekend for the school to hire Jim Harbaugh to replace Brady Hoke. Said delirious fan wants to raise $1,000,000.00 which would probably be 20% of one year’s salary needed to get Harbaugh to Michigan, assuming he wants to leave...
The long-awaited game (kinda) between the Toledo Walleye and the Evansville IceMen took place Saturday night. The Walleye had on spiffy Batman jerseys while their opponent IceMen sported those of the supervillain The Riddler. And then, like Batman and The Riddler, they fought.
Toledo was up 6-1 late in the third period, Toledo’s Cody Lampl dropped the gloves with...
Justin Rose didn’t end up winning the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai Sunday, but he (a) hit the shot of the day and (b) made me wish it was still golf season in Michigan. You see, I have found myself in Rose’s predicament more times than I wish to count (each round). You would have thought he was playing in the forest.
On the 15th hole, Rose’s drive landed...
Shut it down. On Sunday night, Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. made the best catch anyone has ever and will ever make. He caught a ball from 50 yards away one-handed while falling backwards. And he made the catch with three fingers.
Dominic Raiola took matters into his own hands Sunday as he dove into Patrios defensive lineman Zach Moore’s knees after the final play. You see, Raiola was mad that the Patriots are better at football than the Lions. More specifically, he was angry that the Pats scored with under two minutes left when they were already up 27-9. And even more specifically, Raiola did...
The Michigan football team lost to an unworthy Big Ten team in Maryland Saturday and tight end commitment Chris Clark took note. Clark tweeted that Michigan has hit “rock bottom”.
A little while later, Clark, the second-best TE prospect in the country, retweeted anther tweet rooting on the USC Trojans. Despite the verbal commitment to Michigan, Clark is visiting USC...
During talk of Alabama’s “cupcake” game against Western Carolina Saturday, ESPN’s Jade McCarthy said she is dairy and gluten free so she can’t enjoy cupcakes. Someone delivered some dairy and gluten-free cupcakes to the desk and Jade dug right in.
But she did it wrong. Who doesn’t get frosting in the first bite? #Fail #IKnowSheWasJustBeingALady
His name is Porter Maberry. He’s five feet, five inches tall. He dunks basketballs. And he does it well. In a video put out by Dunkademics, Maberry showed his stuff. And by stuff, I mean dunks. And by dunks, I mean slam dunks. He’s a “professional” dunker, which I think means he gets paid to dunk basketballs. Whatever works, I guess.
Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson wasn’t about to sit inside and mope about all of the snow falling in Buffalo over the past 48 hours. Some areas received as much as 65 inches (and are expected to get more – MORE?! – Wednesday night and Thursday). Jackson went outside and played shot put with his daughters…because what else were they supposed to do?
Whoever said that table tennis isn’t a contact sport? This video has been going around this week and I couldn’t not post it. In Russia (where else), it certainly proved to be when Peter Prick (such a made-up name) shoved Ulrich the Umpire (also a made-up name) out of his seat after match point. Dozens of adults stand and look because RUSSIA!
Following the match...
Ten minutes before Wednesday’s game against the Suns, all of 26 people were inside The Palace.
Entering the game, the Pistons were 3-8, the Suns 6-5. It was a balmy 25 degrees out with a windchill of 20. The roads weren’t the greatest. Earlier today, tickets were available for $3 on Stubhub. The announced attendance was 10,686 (sure it was).
I know where I was – in...
In incredibly-important-breaking news, Greg Monroe’s contact lens popped out in the waning minutes Wednesday night against the Phoenix Suns. BUT…BUT…he found it.
We can all sleep easy now.

In 2014, Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio will earn $5.6 million, good for second-highest in the nation behind Alabama’s Nick Saban who is making $7.2 million. The USA Today released their database of college football coaching salaries for the year on Wednesday.
Dantonio has received two bumps in salary in 2014. The first came in January...
Wednesday’s date marks the tenth anniversary of one the biggest black marks in the NBA, sports and Detroit history as we “celebrate” (hardly) the “Malice at The Palace”. Ten years ago tonight, the Pistons, Pacers and fans brawled in the stands and on The Palace floor because, frankly, people are idiots. With 45 seconds left and the Pacers leading by...
It has been well-documented over the last few days that hockey legend Gordie Howe is batting for his life after suffering two strokes. On Monday, Keith Olbermann of ESPN offered an outstanding tribute.
It’s well worth your six minutes if you haven’t seen it. It’s well worth your six minutes if you have seen it.
For what seemed like much of last season, Miguel Cabrera played with a bum wheel. On October 22nd (pictured above), he underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture to the navicular bone in his right foot. On Tuesday, he tweeted post-surgery photos.
Cabrera’s tweet loosely reads, “Thank God for giving me the strength to play with a fractured foot.” There...
It wouldn’t have been my first choice of words, but the Eastern Michigan basketball play-by-play guy went with “facial” in describing EMU’s Karrington Ward’s dunk over Oakland University’s K. Felder Monday night.
And really, it’s probably the most emphatic call of a “facial” in the history of facials.

As part of welcoming the University of Detroit Mercy Titans to the Matthew Knight Center, this Oregon bro froze during the pre-game introductions on ESPNU.
I present to you Exhibit A for why ESPN should plant a cute blonde behind the announcers – not some gumpy dude dressed as nightmare fuel.
Am I wrong?

Before he turned 15, Floyd Mayweather’s son almost had everything. After his dad bought him a gold Bentley golf cart for his 15th birthday, now he does.
A Bentley golf cart? A Bentley golf cart. Whatever. I bet it doesn’t even have a spot for his golf bag. (I’m totally aware that he doesn’t have a golf bag).

The quarterback took the snap, turned around and handed off to an offensive lineman – an offensive lineman – who took it in for a touchdown. Crescenta Valley (CA) offensive guard BK Kim took the hand off, buried it in his midsection and waited until everyone else on the football field cleared. Then he ran 20 yards for a score.
There are well drawn-up plays and then...

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton attended a trapeze school in New York City over the weekend because who wouldn’t want to swing from a trapeze. Well, I can think of three people who shouldn’t want to swing from a trapeze: (1) me; (2) a person afraid of heights and (3) a former Cy Young and Most Valuable Player who underwent core surgery...
Remember that one time (Sunday night) when Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban scored a goal off Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey’s nuts? Jimmy Howard had no chance because (1) the shot was going wide of the net and (2) how is he supposed to know how a puck will deflect off a guy’s guys?
This just gives new definition to Kyle Quincey being junk. Now, his junk is junk.
Sometimes sports doesn’t look like sports.
Hubert Poulin, a player for the Trois-Rivieres Blizzard of the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey (LNAH), had an incident with a fan over the weekend involving a water bottle. Watch the lower right corner of the video as Poulin chucks a water bottle into the crowd. Then Charlie Crazyfan sends it right back, spiking it on the ice and offering a few “come at me bro’s”...
