Bunyan'd: Michigan State routs Michigan 35-11

Michigan State manhandles Michigan in every facet of the game. If you believe in moral victories, then Michigan ending its 1,106-day streak without a touchdown against Michigan State is the only one that was on display Saturday. A one-yard run from De'Veon Smith late in the fourth quarter ended the streak that stood since 2011. Michigan State (7-1, 4-0) proved once again that it is the state and arguably the conference's best by dispatching the Wolverines (3-5, 1-4) 35-11. "We made some progress during the week we thought, but we have to go back to work," Michigan coach Brady Hoke said. "We...

Michigan State 35 - Michigan "Not Very Good" | A Laughable Excuse For A Football Game

Michigan has ceased playing competitive football. It is simply running out clock on Brady Hoke's career as head coach. Michigan is not good at football. It's quarterback, Devin Gardner, has regressed over three years and now throws shovel passes to opposing linebackers in the red zone. It's offensive line got the Wolverines to positive yards, but gave up loads of pressure. It's defense once again gave up a back-breaking score before halftime. It's receivers dropped a few critical passes. Michigan walked into East Lansing a huge underdog and walked out with its head down as Michigan State...

This Wolverines game day in history returns

After taking a couple weeks off, TWGDIH returns, looking at how the Michigan Wolverines have fared on Oct. 25 throughout history and hoping the past does and does not repeat itself. After a three-week hiatus due to traveling to Rutgers, Master's schoolwork, and a bye week, TWGDIH returns to remind us all how great Michigan's been in the past, while trying to find some reason to have a sliver of hope heading into a hopeless game today. Greatest Victory: 86-0 over Ohio in 1902 This is the easiest answer and probably cheating, but how can you not consider the largest win in the Michigan-Ohio...

How to watch Michigan vs. Michigan State: Preview, TV Schedule and More

The state is up for grabs today. Can Michigan compete? Is there something on the field today, a reminder for Michigan's players hidden in the turf? A reminder of why we play this game, and what there is to be gained by standing up after falling down? Of what is at stake every year, every single year, a reminder of the worth of a single brick, or who we can be if we are inspired to build something? Redemption and victory may be hidden in the jaws of the Spartans' attack, but only if we assert our will against their defense, just as we've asserted our will against them so many times before....

Game Eight: Michigan vs. Michigan State (10/25/2014)

The Wolverines make a return trip to East Lansing for the Battle of the Paul Bunyan Trophy against in-state rivals Michigan State. ANN ARBOR -- The time has come once again for Michigan and Michigan State to face off against one another. After thoroughly being handled by 23-points in East Lansing a year ago, the Wolverines (3-4, 1-2) will make the return trip to Spartan Stadium (3:30 p.m. kickoff) hoping for better results. The oddsmaker in Vegas, however, don't think that is going to happen this season. Michigan State (6-1, 3-0) opens the week as 15-point favorites, according to...

YFD Buckles Up

Yikes. I talk to my dad about Michigan football two or three times a week. Invariably, the first point he brings up is the line of the game. On Sunday, he'll mention what it is and then remind me about the 2.5-3.5 point bump a home team usually gets. Then during the week he'll tell me about how it's moved and how that's a good or bad sign for Michigan. He isn't a gambler, but he's usually right in reading how the line works. Michigan opened on Sunday against State at -17, and I talked to my dad three times. The line didn't change. This likely means that a 2013-like performance is in store....

Michigan Hoops Preview: The Vets | The Man, The Myth, The Bielfeldt

What kind of role will Max Bielfeldt have on a Michigan squad that could badly use veteran leadership on the front line? Sr. F/C Max Bielfeldt; 6-foot-7 245 lbs. His Story Max is entering his fourth year in the program and until the departure of Jon Horford this off season it looked like Bielfeldt would spend the entirety of his career as a rarely used depth player.  Of course, that still might be the case, but Horford's departure has Michigan's front line looking very young, swinging the door open for one last push from Max. The Wolverines have four freshmen vying for time at the four and...

Questioning the Enemy: The Only Colors

Jeremy Warnermuende from SB Nation's friendly Michigan State blog The Only Colors donates some time to answer some questions about Saturday's game. As always, be sure to visit The Only Colors for all the Michigan State information one would need. What's MSU doing this week to not get too ahead of themselves knowing they are the heavy favorites? Did Dantonio Take away all the players' electronics and lock his coaches in a small room because I haven't heard a peep from East Lansing. I think Mark Dantonio has been taking his own advice this week. The whole "Pride comes before the fall" rant...

Michigan Hoops Preview: The Vets | Zak Irvin, Just A Shooter?

Michigan Hoops Preview: The Vets | Zak Irvin, Just A Shooter?

The freshman version of Zak Irvin conformed to the "Just A Shooter" stereotype that never really fit Nik Stauskas the year before. Can a sophomore Irvin shed the much more deserved "Just A Shooter" label? Soph. G/F Zak Irvin: 6-foot-6 215 lbs. His Story It was clear early last season that there weren't too many three point shots out there that Zak Irvin would pass up.  The "Just A Shooter" reputation that floated around Nik Stauskas the year before was hardly mentioned around Irvin, most likely because it was obvious.  Everything Irvin did on the court was in service of the three-point...

Thursday Morning Brews (10/23/14)

Looking ahead to our next opponent... Indiana. Funeral Blues Michigan may be at risk of further embarrassment (that was possible?) this weekend in East Lansing. But no matter. There are still some wonderful things to celebrate - like literature, for example, or things with butter in them. On that note, below is a wonderful poem from W.H. Auden, which is completely unrelated to anything Michigan-related and in no way signifies a white flag or an upcoming funeral. The battle for the state will be well-fought, and Michigan has the players on hand to win it. Hopefully that translates to...

Students, alumni, and fans of both the Wolverines and the Spartans use this precious time to remind their counterparts of any and all reasons why their school is superior. And,...

Michigan Hoops Preview: The Vets | A Swiss Army Knife With A Basketball, The Caris LeVert Story

Michigan will rely heavily on junior Caris LeVert, last year's do-everything wing, to carry the offense and help break in a lineup that will rely heavily on a few first year players. Jr. SG Caris LeVert; 6-foot-6 200 lbs. His Story Last year's emergence of Nik Stauskas was a surprise to many who expected Michigan to be led by Glenn Robinson III and Mitch McGary.  Of course it wasn't as surprising as the huge leap in production and efficiency that Caris LeVert made as a sophomore. In his first year it was mostly just talk.  Mentions of LeVert having a natural scoring talent that flashed...
