Michigan releases all-time coaching mural — with everyone included

Michigan releases all-time coaching mural — with everyone included

No matter what the record was or the amount of time spent with the Michigan football, the new mural hanging in Schembechler Hall includes every head coach in program history. The University of Michigan is one of the most historic and storied programs of all-time when it comes to college football. With something that goes back as far as Wolverine football, there are many of different layers to what makes up the past of this football background. Most of the memories are good, some are bad. When it comes to coaches, for the most part, fans can look back and be proud of who has walked the...

Opinion: Moritz Wagner is returning to college, and that can't be overlooked

Opinion: Moritz Wagner is returning to college, and that can't be overlooked

All eyes have been on D.J. Wilson and what is happening to him in his early NBA career, while Moe Wagner took the other route and returned to Michigan. It should be getting more attention than it has for next season. All of the talk and attention on the Michigan basketball landscape has been centered around D.J. Wilson, and with good reason. The 17th overall NBA Draft pick to the Milwaukee Bucks shocked a majority of the country, going even earlier than his projected 20-30 range. However, most people are forgetting something else that was going on when Wilson declared to leave college and...

Greetings from Milwaukee: what the Bucks like about D.J. Wilson, on and off the court

Going off of his unique and intriguing style of play, D.J. Wilson was a perfect fit into the Bucks organization that they are excited for what's to come with the ex-Michigan forward. Jason Kidd, the Milwaukee Bucks head coach, said that D.J. Wilson “fit the team’s DNA” after drafting him 17th overall in the NBA Draft. As Wilson was introduced to the team today in Milwaukee, Kidd said there will “unusual freedom” for the ex-Michigan forward. The 6-foot-10 Wilson has always had a different type of personality, on and off the court, and the Bucks have showed nothing but love for it...

Donlon to leave Michigan, head to Northwestern per Scout.com

Donlon to leave Michigan, head to Northwestern per Scout.com

After a short stay for a year in Ann Arbor, assistant coach Billy Donlon will part ways with the Wolverines and coach under lifelong friend Chris Collins at Northwestern. For Billy Donlon, it was more of a quick stop than a stay in Ann Arbor. Donlon, who was an assistant coach to John Beilein starting last summer, will take the same position under Chris Collins at Northwestern, according to Scout.com’s Brian Snow. Collins and Donlon both grew up in the suburbs of Chicago (Northbrook), where their friendship began. Their fathers were both coaches in the city in the 1980s. "From what I've...

Irvin and Walton will join NBA Summer League teams

While Derrick Walton Jr. and Zak Irvin didn't get taken in the NBA Draft, they soon after were given the opportunity to play in a Summer League for the NBA. Soon after the hype started to die down from D.J. Wilson being selected as the 17th overall pick to the Milwaukee Bucks, the attention from Michigan fans turned towards a couple other ex-Wolverines. Derrick Walton Jr. and Zak Irvin, who were long time partners in crime in the Michigan basketball system, were waiting to here their name called and it never did during the draft. It didn't take long for them to receive a call afterward....

Penn State will look to ‘white out’ last year’s loss in Ann Arbor

Penn State will look to ‘white out’ last year’s loss in Ann Arbor

Michigan's goal: Turn 'Happy Valley' into an ironic name. For anyone who watched last year's Michigan vs. Penn State game and then skipped the rest of the season for some good antiquing, you may see the initial two-touchdown-favorite Nittany Lions in 2017 and be utterly shocked. For the rest of us, though, who watched Michigan's and PSU's seasons play out, we're simply...well, utterly shocked. The Wolverines pounded the Nittany Lions last season, 49-10, and while critics will say that PSU was riddled with injuries and that they were a different team from later in the season, the fact...

Friday Michigan Recruiting Roundup: The Long Game

Friday Michigan Recruiting Roundup: The Long Game

Nicholas Petit-Frère visit reaction The hype train is still in the station for the 6’6”, 260-pound Florida tackle (and 2018 four-star) Nicholas Petit-Frère, and it would be unreasonable to say the Wolverines have any more than a good puncher’s chance at this stage of the game. But Michigan had a good visit with Nicholas this past week, and he spoke highly about it with Scout ($) - and in an almost identical way as his other visits to Ohio State, Duke, and UNC. Ultimately, he said, he’s not focused on recruiting. “I'm still in football mode now. We're starting up our workouts for...

D.J. Wilson is the 17th overall pick in the NBA Draft, goes to the Milwaukee Bucks

D.J. Wilson is the 17th overall pick in the NBA Draft, goes to the Milwaukee Bucks

After all of the rumors and confusion, the Milwaukee Bucks made it clear that they needed D.J. Wilson by drafting him in the middle of the first-round. For over a month now, the puzzle has been trying to be solved on D.J. Wilson who elected to leave Michigan and start his career in the NBA. After injuring his quad, he said on May 13, “I should be fine within a week or so,” but there was never word from him after and no signs of him working out for NBA teams. Tonight, you can finally sum it up in two words: mystery solved. With the 17th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the Milwaukee Bucks...

NBA Draft Preview: What it looks like for Michigan Wolverines in the draft

Where and when will D.J. Wilson find himself getting drafted, and what is next for Derrick Walton Jr. and Zak Irvin in the future of their basketball careers. For most players that enter the NBA Draft, today is the day they have been waiting for since they decided to enter the draft process and workout for NBA teams. For D.J. Wilson, nobody's quite sure how he is feeling. The 6-foot-10 forward hasn't said anything since May 13 when he last addressed reporters and talked about the injury to his quad which he strained. He said, “I should be fine within a week or so,” but hasn't worked out...

Jeff Meyer: through his battle away from coaching, remained a staple for John Beilein

Jeff Meyer: through his battle away from coaching, remained a staple for John Beilein

Through the challenges that Jeff Meyer has had to deal with when he wasn't on Michigan’s sideline, he was always there for the Michigan basketball program as a key piece to their puzzle over the last decade. It wouldn't be out of the norm to say that the Michigan basketball program has been through its share of ups and downs over the past decade. From the seven (and soon to be eight) players to leave the Wolverines early to join the NBA, to the rise, then fall, and rise again of hoops in Ann Arbor, there has been a fair share of oddities and quirks. Through it all, there was Jeff Meyer, a...

D.J. Wilson is moving towards a first round NBA Draft pick

The decision for D.J. Wilson to move on from Michigan and college basketball looks like it could be paying off as a first round pick. When it comes to predicting what is going on with the future for former Michigan forward D.J. Wilson, it hasn’t been very clear. Since his decision to declare for the NBA Draft on May 24, there hasn't been any word of Wilson working out with NBA teams. He injured his quad not long before he made his decision to leave Michigan, and since then there hasn't been any word on what he's been doing to improve his draft stock. The draft is on Thursday, and while...

Michigan vs. Indiana: What to look for in Bloomington

Michigan vs. Indiana: What to look for in Bloomington

They say third time’s a charm. Well, Michigan better be careful. Indiana is, first and foremost, a basketball school. They’ll (usually) be the first to admit it. Why, then, are they so darn pesky on the football field? Let’s go back to a bitterly cold day in November. The snow is falling to the turf inside Michigan Stadium, Wilton Speight is sitting on the bench, injured, and the generously-counted 107,601 fans huddle for warmth while their minds drift to Ohio State the following week. Meanwhile, on the field, IU takes a 7-3 lead into the locker room at halftime. Darn...

Derrick Walton Jr.’s long journey, and a chance at the NBA

While the road for Derrick Walton Jr. wasn’t as simple as he may have wished for, he never quit working, and is making a push for the NBA. Sometimes the road to the NBA isn't always as smoothly paved as it was supposed to be for college players. As for Derrick Walton Jr., that would be the highway he was forced to take. After being highly recruited out of Chandler Park High School to Michigan, Walton fought injuries and simply didn't reach some expectations in his first three seasons with the Wolverines. To start last season, it didn't look like much would change for the Michigan senior...

Michigan will get to take on CMU and head coach Keno Davis for the first time since 2012.
