Quick Analysis: What 2016 Wide Receiver Ahmir Mitchell Brings To The Wolverines

Taking a quick look at the four-star wide receiver's skill set. Michigan received its 23rd commitment of the 2016 cycle today in the form of wide receiver Ahmir Mitchell (Egg Harbor City, New Jersey).

With college football one week away, sports bettors better be prepared for the unexpected. We review some of the worst recent gambling beats and enjoy the post game reactions on social media.

"Few players recall big pots they have won, strange as it seems, but every player with remarkable accuracy can remember the outstanding tough beats of his career." Unfortunately for sports bettors, the difference remains few and far between. There’s a plausible...

Tuesday Morning Brews: Big Ten West Predictions

13-0 Purdue conquers all! Alright, not exactly, but maybe they're doing a little better than we thought. Wild, Wild West 'Tis the season for football predictions. On the one hand, football season tends to rip early expectations apart, but on the other, people like me would rather seem sane when predicting a resurgent, 13-0 Purdue beats Alabama and the Miami Dolphins in the College Football Playoff. When Stewart Mandel and Bruce Feldman came out with their Big Ten picks for FOX Sports earlier this month, they erred on the safe side. Both said Ohio State at 12-0, Michigan State at 11-1,...

Column: College Football's Return Signals The "Most Wonderful Time Of The Year"

Michigan unranked in preseason AP Poll for 2015 season

Jim Harbaugh's troops have a ways to climb. The Michigan Wolverines will begin the year looking up at the college football rankings, at least in the eyes of many of the sport's scribes.
