Maize n Brew's 2015 Michigan Spring Game Draft

With Jim Harbaugh as the coach, Michigan will play an actual game in its spring game next Saturday and conduct a draft to determine which players will be on each team. We got a head start and did our own draft. Who drafted the best team? Did we make the right picks? Find out below. It has been more than a few years since Michigan's spring game was an actual "game." Under Brady Hoke, Michigan's spring game consisted of everyone's favorite punting drills and situational 11-on-11's due to injuries and depth issues. There were no set teams. There was no official score. There was no official...

Michigan Football Spring Rundown: Special Teams

Last, but not least, we preview a position group that needs some fresh faces to step up: special teams. After losing both Matt Wile and Will Hagerup, Michigan has near-minimal in-game experience in the kicking game. Of the four kicker/punters that will be on the roster this fall, only redshirt junior Kenny Allen has registered any stats...which was a 51-yard punt in the final minutes of Michigan's 59-9 romp over Central Michigan to start the '13 season. Granted, the other three players haven't had a chance to perform yet: Ryan Tice and Andrew David are incoming freshmen, and Kyle Seychel...

Thursday Morning Brews (3/26/15)

Who had America's Best Backfield in 2014? Georgia or Wisconsin? America's Best Backfield I won't lie. I didn't come up with the title, which I found on a YouTube video about Wisconsin's 2012 team, one that scored 38 touchdowns on the ground and rushed for over 3,300 yards. And, it seemed like a statement that bore a little more fruit. Who's produced the best backfields? Who's established a reputation for being elite? If we look at the best three-headed rushing attacks over the last five years, it's no surprise that Wisconsin is in the running every year. They don't always win it, but good...

2014-15 Season Review: John Beilein

We reviewed and graded John Beilein's performance in a "very unique" 2014-15 season -- a season that highlighted his unbelievable prowess for developing unknown gems and some suboptimal in-game strategies. Michigan basketball coach John Beilein said it best: "This was a very unique year." This was the first time in eight seasons at Michigan that Beilein fell victim to his own success. This past season, Trey Burke was supposed to be a senior. Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III were supposed to be juniors. None of them were top-100 recruits when they committed to Michigan, and none were...

Spring Game Preview: New Job, Same Greg

Mattison's demotion from DC to DL coach may not be good for Greg but it's great for the Defensive Line. Coming Home. This was the theme for the entire Harbaugh to Michigan campaign as the prodigal son returned from his years away. Of course for Harbaugh to walk through the door many others had to walk out, something most Wolverines fans praised as Brady Hoke and Nussmeier were kicked off campus. Yet many worried that the arrival of D.J. Durkin would spell the end of Greg Mattison with the Michigan Wolverines, I know I did. Greg Mattison was the best coach of the Brady Hoke by far, as his...

Tuesday Morning Brews (3/24/15)

Numbers don't tell the whole story for these running backs. Five Backs Who Are Better Than You Think The Big Ten's running backs have started getting some media attention, for good reason. But for every 1,000-yard rusher, there's also a tailback that plays better than his hype. As we'll detail, the odds are against any of these guys breaking out next year, even though they're dangerous runners. 1. Josh Ferguson, Illinois Fighting Illini Ferguson is basically everything you want. He's fast, he controls his body, catches a ton of passes (100 over the last two years), and ran for 735 yards ......

It was a tough week in some ways - but we beat all our rivals while women's gymnastics won the Big Ten championships. Football Whoever replaced Brady Hoke, it could be argued that their very first task was to bring together a fanbase that had started to fracture over the past seven years.

Thankfully, that's started to change. Jim Harbaugh was a Michigan Man and an elite coach, and he set the groundwork for a resurgent...
