2018 tight end Mustapha Muhammad verbally commits to Michigan

2018 tight end Mustapha Muhammad verbally commits to Michigan

The big-time tight end prospect has pledged to the Wolverines. The football recruiting trail has run a bit dry since the season started, but Michigan just landed another top player in the 2018 class in the form of 4-star tight end Mustapha Muhammad. Muhammad is the fifth ranked tight end and the 109th overall player in 247Sports’ Composite Rankings for the 2018 class. Texas, Clemson, UCLA and LSU were also in the running. The 6-foot-4, 235 pound tight end is an all around good player. He isn’t great at one thing, but he is a good at just about everything — blocking, receiving and...

Roundtable: Wolverines to face

Roundtable: Wolverines to face "white out" conditions in Happy Valley

Ed: Hey, guys. The showdown with Penn State is finally upon us. How are we feeling heading into this one? Anything you saw against Indiana last week that gives you reason to be optimistic? Dan: If the last, I dunno, 6-8 minutes of the game didn’t happen, I’d be feeling about as good as I could have expected heading in. The offensive line finally showed a pulse, the offensive coaching staff made a concentrated effort to get DPJ the ball, and the defense did Don Brown things. The collapse left a bad taste in my mouth because it was the same meltdown recipe we’ve seen way too many times...

Michigan vs. Penn State Game Preview: How to watch, stream, listen and prediction

Michigan heads to Happy Valley with its season on the line on Saturday Night Football Michigan Football heads to Happy Valley on Saturday night for a make-or-break showdown with the No. 2 Penn State Nittany Lions with Big Ten East implications on the line. To say that the Wolverines’ season is on the line would probably be an understatement. If the expectation in Ann Arbor is to win Big Ten Championships, this is one they need to find a way to win. The problem is that signature wins have eluded the program so far under Jim Harbaugh. There are a variety of reasons for this, but the fact of...

Getting to know Penn State: Nittany Lions rank high in many categories

This is gonna be a huge game The Penn State Nittany Lions received a spanking from the Michigan Wolverines in 2016, losing in Ann Arbor 49-10. A year removed, Penn State is No. 2 in the country, while the Wolverines have fallen to No. 19. Penn State needed a last second touchdown to beat Iowa a few weeks back, besides that, it has been smooth sailing for this undefeated squad. Running back Saquon Barkley is firmly entrenched in any talk when the word Heisman is mentioned. Barkley has done it all, even returning a kickoff for a touchdown and throwing a touchdown pass. Barkley has rushed...

Michigan needs to attack Penn State with enthusiasm unknown to mankind - and a good game plan

Michigan needs to attack Penn State with enthusiasm unknown to mankind - and a good game plan

The Wolverines could take a cue from their coach’s off-field persona in Happy Valley Attacking this day with Enthusiasm Unknown to Mankind— Coach Harbaugh (@CoachJim4UM) January 15, 2015 This is my favorite Harbaugh-ism, bar none. You can have the American Sniper tweet, the Nordin sleepover, or his now legendary Pardon My Take interview; but for me, “Attack each day with enthusiasm unknown to mankind” is peak Harbaugh. I love this tweet because it is purely bad ass. I’m fond of texting it to my friends when I know they have a big day at work or in school, and somewhere along...

Inside the Numbers: The Formula to Upsetting Penn State

As long as Michigan sticks to a certain offensive game plan, the Wolverines have a shot to knock off Penn State. Saturday night will be a pivotal point for Michigan’s season. The Wolverines head to Happy Valley, where No. 2 Penn State, a sea of white, and a never-ending chorus of Seven Nation Army awaits them. It is a viper pit, a place many excellent teams have entered only to leave dazed and confused and licking their wounds. And it is where the trajectory for Michigan’s season will be determined. With a loss, the Wolverines will be all but out of the Big Ten race. They already have a...

Turning point of the game: Karan Higdon shines in win over Indiana

Coming off a loss that Michigan a loss at home to Michigan State, running back Karan Higdon’s play was the clear turning point of the game multiple times against the Hoosiers. Before this past Saturday’s meeting in Bloomington between then ranked No. 17 Michigan (5-1, 1-1 Big Ten) and Indiana (3-3, 0-3), the last two games in the series were thrillers right down to the finish. This weekends contest lived up to the same standards. The Wolverines escaped with a 27-20 overtime victory over the Hoosiers, the second-straight overtime victory for the Wolverines at Memorial Stadium. With game...

Jim Harbaugh week 7 Monday presser recap

Jim Harbaugh week 7 Monday presser recap

All the quotes you need Jim Harbaugh was at the podium a short time ago. He discussed Michigan’s win over Indiana and had a handful of quotes about the upcoming tilt against Penn State. As always, we have a recap of the presser for you. Monday Press Conference Recap Mo Hurst and Rashan Gary were d-linemen of the week “We’re one of ten teams that have allowed 280 yards or less in the first six ballgames since 2000.” “A good rushing team in Indiana, and limiting them to 80-some rushing yards is really good.” Thought Lavert Hill’s first interception was a legal play. Said Devin...

What we learned against Indiana: Michigan refuses to put teams away

What we learned against Indiana: Michigan refuses to put teams away

Michigan scraped by the Hoosiers in overtime...again. It’s a stressful trend. Over and over I've said it: Indiana is an extremely pesky team that seems to give Michigan a run for its money each time they play. It happened again Saturday as the Wolverines blew a 10-point fourth quarter lead before defeating the Hoosiers in overtime. Through six games, not much has changed with this Michigan team. Same old story: the defense is dominant and will keep them in every game, but mistakes and bad offense continue to drag this team down. Let's look at the lessons we learned in Bloomington. Lesson...

Unfair or just? Michigan falls to No. 19 in AP Top 25 Poll

Unfair or just? Michigan falls to No. 19 in AP Top 25 Poll

A win didn’t help Michigan in the rankings Michigan had an overtime victory against the Indiana Hoosiers to improve to 5-1 on the season, but the voters weren’t impressed. The Wolverines fell from No. 17 to No. 19 in the AP Top 25 Poll. However, they did rise one spot to No. 15 in the coaches poll. While Michigan’s game wasn’t pretty in victory, they did tally up over 200 yards rushing on the day, and the defense had an impressive goal-line stand. Michigan may be getting penalized too much for their loss against Michigan State. Let’s say Michigan didn’t lose against MSU,...

Opponent Watch: How Michigan’s Opponents Performed in Week 7

Opponent Watch: How Michigan’s Opponents Performed in Week 7

From improbable comebacks to blowouts, Michigan’s opponents turned in a mixed bag of performances this week. Man, I hate playing Indiana; always tough, always frustrating. Once John O’Korn forgot ‘how to quarterback’, Karan Higdon fought through back pain from carrying the Michigan offense and the Wolverines survived in overtime (my liver thanks you, Karan). I know that winning is all that matters at this point in the season, but some damn style points would be nice. I miss blowouts, yet I digress. The season is halfway over and it is time to start hearing the word “résumé”...

Takeaways from Michigan’s 27-20 win over Indiana

We have some stuff to talk about The Michigan Wolverines pulled off a 27-20 win in overtime over the Indiana Hoosiers, and gave us plenty to talk about. From an abundance of penalties to an epic day from a running back, this game had a lot of takeaways. Takeaways from Michigan’s 27-20 win over Indiana Offensive line was impressive This was by far the best game for Michigan’s offensive line. The unit gave John O’Korn time to throw for most of his attempts, and excelled in run blocking, providing big holes for Karan Higdon and Ty Issac to navigate through. Tim Drevno had this unit...

Game Recap: Michigan beats Indiana 27-20

An entertaining game Michigan doesn’t make it easy for themselves or their fans sometimes, this game was a nail-biter, a root canal, a four hour heart attack. The good news for the Wolverines is they pulled a win out of their hat in overtime to beat the Indiana Hoosiers. GAME RECAP First Quarter On Michigan’s first possession of the day, they have a methodical 6:17 drive that stalls in the red-zone. The ever reliable Quinn Nordin nails a 40 yard field goal. Michigan leads 3-0 Second Quarter After blocking an Indiana field goal and being set up in good field position on the return,...

Michigan vs. Indiana Game Thread: Daunting Memories at Memorial Stadium

Things started out great for me at Memorial Stadium, but got annoying quite quickly Gather ‘round, kids, and let Uncle Von tell you a story of my one trip to Bloomington, Indiana for when Michigan took on Indiana. The year was 2010. My father, mother, brother and myself took a weekend trip to Indiana to see the Wolverines in action. Things started out great, as the opening song to the game was my favorite song of all time: Baba O’Riley by The Who. But after that fantastic song, it was time for the Wolverines to do battle with the Hoosiers. Hoosiers. That would be a word engraved in my...

10 Players to watch in the Indiana vs Michigan Game

10 Players to watch in the Indiana vs Michigan Game

What players will make the biggest impact? After one of the toughest losses in the Harbaugh era, the #17 Michigan Wolverines (4-1) now go on the road to Bloomington to play an Indiana Hoosiers (3-2) team that is likely fielding its best defense in a decade. That doesn’t bode well for a Michigan offense coming off one of the worst all around performances under Harbaugh. However, Indiana is in the middle of figuring out some offensive problems of its own. In a game where the first team to 10 points might win, individual players are key to swinging the tide to their team. The following are...

Roundtable: Will Michigan bounce back against the Hoosiers?

Ed: Hey, guys. Last week was a tough one, but let’s keep our eyes looking forward. What are you hoping to see from Michigan in this bounce-back game? Eric: Less predictability on offense. Chris Evans up the middle is not going to do it. He had a woeful 27 yards on 12 carries (and 20 of those yards were on the first drive). When my 15-year-old daughter is yelling to not run the same specific play, Harbaugh needs to be a little less stubborn. Also, the offensive formations aren’t spreading the defense out at all and making it too easy to defend Michigan. Jared: A pulse on offense would...

Michigan Football is back on the field this week as they go on the road and try to get the bad taste in their mouth from a loss last week. The next challenge in the way is the Indiana Hoosiers, who is a team that Michigan has been 21-straight times they have gone up against each other. However, it is a program that never makes it easy and always plays the Wolverines tough. After a horrid week against Michigan State, the offense will look to get back on track with John O’Korn under center for the Wolverines. Last time they...
