Visiting Bo: Graveyard Walk Symbolizes Cultural Return of Michigan Football

Jim Harbaugh joined Wolverine fans on Tuesday night in a tradition honoring Bo Schembechler, Fielding Yost and Bob Ufer. ANN ARBOR -- The return of Michigan football came on a frigid Tuesday night in November, with more than 200 Wolverine fans linking arms and singing the alma mater. Yes, ironically enough, the rebirth of Michigan football happened in a cemetery. For the last several years, Michigan has had a football problem; there’s no doubt about that. But, more deeply, the very pillars upon which one of the greatest programs in the nation was built had become rotten, putrid with...

Harbaugh Downplays Ohio State Rivalry

During Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh's weekly press conference, he referenced the 1969 Michigan football team, Bo Schembechler and the indelible mark quarterback Jake Rudock has made on the Wolverines. Jim Harbaugh looked out the Crisler Center windows at the snow and referenced the 1969 Michigan football team. That year, a new coach took over Ann Arbor and began the most famed era of Michigan football. “Today, I’m most reminded of a time I wasn’t even here,” Harbaugh said on Monday during his weekly press conference. “I just read about it and heard players from the 1969 team...

What We Learned: Penn State Week

This season has exceeded expectations so far. Michigan owns a perfect Big Ten road record, has seen massive improvement at multiple positions, and can compete with anyone. And it's only Jim Harbaugh's first year. How's Michigan doing it? Can they keep it up for The Game? WHAT WE LEARNED: ABOUT MICHIGAN Michigan enjoys traveling. After Michigan posted only a 9-19 record in Big Ten road games in the prior seven years, fans entered 2015 a little scarred about road games in general. But that was then, and this is now. And now, we just saw Michigan sweep its conference road slate for the first...

Bowl Projections Roundup: Week 13

Michigan's odds to win the Big Ten are slim, but a trip to the Rose Bowl or another New Year's Six bowl is not out of the question whatsoever. Michigan's odds to win the Big Ten and possibly sneak in to the College Football Playoff are on life support. Though the Wolverines took care of business and handled Penn State, 28-16, in Happy Valley on Saturday, Ohio State didn't hold up its end of the bargain, losing on a last-second field goal to a Connor Cook-less Michigan State team in Columbus in what must be the worst-coached game of Urban Meyer's career. Now, not only does Michigan need to...

Michigan 4 - BU 2

The Wolverines took the lead early in Boston and never looked back It was a strange weekend in the world of Michigan hockey. Saturday's game played out almost exactly like their Friday game. The Wolverines jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period starting with a pair of power play goals that came courtesy of Tyler Motte and Alex Kile, both coming from point shots put on net by Mike Downing before capping off the period with Brendan Warren scoring on a breakaway. The Wolverines feasted on the Terriers early on by throttling them with two forwards deep on the forecheck and pressing...

Takeaways from Michigan Football's 28-16 Win at Penn State

Red zone defense and Jake Rudock helped the Wolverines pass a tough test on the road. Michigan moved to 9-2 on the season with a 28-16 victory over Penn State on Saturday afternoon, setting up a potential Big Ten East title bout with Ohio State next weekend in Ann Arbor. Here are the takeaways: Red Zone Defense Saved the Day Penn State was held to only 207 yards of total offense on Saturday, but they were able to hit on a handful of big plays to get them into scoring position. In fact, 150 yards of their total came on just five plays. Michigan was able to keep them out of the endzone and...

Michigan 28, Penn State 16: Wolverines Take Care of Business En Route to Win No. 9

Michigan keeps its Big Ten Title hopes alive in Happy Valley. No. 12 Michigan (9-2, 6-1 B1G) handled Penn State (7-4, 4-3 B1G) by a score of 28-16 to keep its conference title aspirations alive. The win puts Michigan at 4-0 on the road in conference play, which is the first time they have done so since the 1997 season. Jake Rudock had another good outing, going 25 for 38 with 256 yards, two touchdowns, an interception and a fumble lost.

Michigan Football vs. Penn State: Keys to Victory

It's time for a run game renaissance. Get the Run Game Going Michigan will face off against one of the best fronts they have seen all season in Penn State. The run game has struggled mightily in recent weeks and is a concern now heading down the stretch of the season. The Wolverines have whittled down their "by-committee" approach at running back with De'Veon Smith and Drake Johnson getting the bulk of the carries there. They do not exactly need one to explode on Saturday, but they together must find a way to get it done. The offensive line is not blameless in Michigan's recent run game...

The Final Memory Of Joe Paterno

The last signing day class of Joe Paterno will take the field at home one last time against Michigan A bronze statue once stood proud on the east side of Beaver Stadium, a seven foot sculpture commemorating the legacy of Joe Paterno. An unbuttoned suit coat waving in the wind, a tie tucked underneath the left side of the coat, with the pants snugged at his waist. As a band of Nittany Lions players jog behind the former head coach, a single finger is raised in the air from Paterno, with a smile that touched everyone's hearts in Happy Valley. On the right side of the statue was a quote from...

Xavier 86, Michigan 70: Wolverines Struggle in First True Test

Mama said there'd be days like this... It wasn’t pretty and it wasn’t quick. Amidst an avalanche of foul calls, Xavier outlasted and outworked Michigan in the Wolverines’ first legitimate test of the year, winning by a score of 86-70. Coming into this one, it was apparent that Xavier would be a challenge for Michigan. Forward Jalen Reynolds, the Detroit product, would give Michigan’s bigs a physical battle and we would finally get to see consensus-top-50 player Trevon Bluiett (of whom Michigan was a serious contender for) go head-to-head with projected lottery pick Caris LeVert....

BU 3 - Michigan 2

The Wolverines fall to BU after giving up a two goal lead in the third. On the road against the 10th ranked team in the country, the Wolverines couldn't have gotten off to a better start. Michigan jumped on BU early with an Alex Kile goal at the six minute mark and Cooper Marody made it 2-0 on a power play goal midway through the first. The Wolverines were stronger, faster and more efficient than BU. The Wolverines caught the Terriers sleepwalking and ran all over them, jamming the BU forwards at the blueline and disconnecting their zone entry. When a scoring chance did make it to Steve...
