MnB Roundtable Feels Positive About the Direction

Michigan welcomes Indiana to the Big House, but hardly anyone will be talking about football after today. Let our writers handle that. That went about as expected in East Lansing...what's it going to take for Michigan to finally look prepared and hang with their competition? Atticus: New helmets. All this talk about coaches - really, to be frank, their impact is overrated. But the feel of a perfectly prepared, ear-hugging helmet is unlike any other. That's my opinion. Kevin: Maybe a hearty breakfast? Peter: Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha...prepared! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Ahem. /clears...

Opponent Q&A: Crimson Quarry

Ben Raphel of friendly neighborhood Indiana blog The Crimson Quarry donates a bit of time to explaining what Indiana is planning to do to Michigan on Saturday. Will Indiana be bringing any stakes to Ann Arbor to stab into the ground? How is Kevin Wilson prepping the team this week for the chance to get some revenge on Michigan for a couple of heartbreaking losses the last several years? BR: Unfortunately, Indiana is the last team that should be trying any sort of stomp-on-the-enemy ritual, especially since the Hoosiers haven't won in the Big House since 1967, which is coincidentally the...

Thursday Morning Brews (10/30/14)

Playoff talk, and a Mark Jackson-inspired HtL. (Mama, there goes that man!) Breaking Down the Inaugural Playoff Ranking The College Football Playoff was designed to give a fairer chance to more teams, create an "undisputed" national champion, and do so in a way that removed bias from determining who would get that chance in the title game. The AP Poll and Coaches Poll, which constituted two-thirds of the BCS rankings, certainly had their flaws - most especially an over-reliance on the win-loss column and a soft spot for marquee teams and players. The Playoff Committee was supposed to be...

Tyree Kinnel visiting West Virginia this weekend, says he is still a U-M commit

The 2015 defensive back commit will be taking an unofficial visit to Morgantown this Saturday with his coach and a teammate. With the state of Michigan football right now, many committed players continue to keep their options open in case a coaching change is made after the season, which looks more and more likely with each loss this season. Four-star 2015 defensive back commit Tyree Kinnel (Dayton, Ohio) is one of these players and he tells Steve Lorenz of 247 Sports that he will be visiting West Virginia this weekend for their game against TCU. Regardless of the visit, he maintains that...

Michigan Hoops Preview | Welcome, Freshmen: Kam Chatman and DJ Wilson

In the span of four days last October Michigan picked up two of the biggest pieces of its 2014 class, a pair of four-star west coast forwards who will be counted on immediately to step up and help Michigan on the front line.

Film Focus: Michigan at MSU (And Corgis!)

Given the state of the Michigan program, I wonder aloud if I should even write the "Film Focus" column for the rest of the season. Do the X's and O's even matter anymore? Or is the focus solely on the changes that are sure to happen at season's end? Oh, and CORGIS! Should I even continue to write the "Film Focus" column for the rest of the season? I began the "Film Focus" series after Michigan's season-opening win over Appalachian State because I wanted readers to learn what was actually happening on the field. What schemes is Michigan using? Why is Michigan trying to run this play out of...

Big Ten Talk: Thomas Beindit of Big Ten Powerhouse Talks The 2014-15 Season And Expectations For The Conference

Getting to know the Big Ten with Tom Beindit of Big Ten Powerhouse. (I got a chance to exchange a few emails with Tom Beindit of Big Ten Powerhouse about all things Big Ten.  Below  is our conversation.  My part is in italics) Any talk of the Big Ten this season has to begin with Wisconsin, a team that brings back pretty much everything amidst a conference that is in a state of roster upheaval. Do you think the Badgers have what it takes to survive the Big Ten season and win a Big Ten championship for the first time since 2008? What do you think could be Wisconsin's undoing if the...

Best Quotes by Michigan Men #1. Those Who Stay Will Be Champions When Bo took over a moribund Michigan program, he drove the players so hard they quit in droves. This message reminded the players he still had what was waiting for them. #2. The Team, The Team, The Team Once again, the recipe is written in the annals of Michigan's history on how to get to the top. It's a phrase Jim Harbaugh has used in San Francisco, but nothing beats the original. Chilling and inspirational. #3. "My heart is so full at this moment, I fear I could say little else. But do let me reiterate the Spirit of...
