Michigan Baseball Wins Big Ten Championship Game, Punches Ticket to NCAA Tournament

Needing to win the Big Ten Tournament to earn a bid in the NCAA Tournament, Michigan baseball completed its magical run with a 4-3 victory over Maryland in the Big Ten Championship Game.

Michigan Softball Sweeps Georgia to Advance to Women's College World Series

Michigan hangs on to advance to its 11th WCWS in the past 21 seasons. The 2014-15 season was more than a disappointment for Michigan's three most popular sports -- with Michigan football, basketball, and ice hockey all failing to participate in the postseason in the same season for the first time since 1973 -- but Michigan softball -- the fourth-most popular sport -- is picking up the slack. One night after No. 3 seed Michigan overpowered No. 14 seed Georgia, 10-3, in Game 1 of their best-of-three Super Regional series, the Wolverines eked past the Bulldogs, 7-6, in Game 2 to complete the...

Michigan with 33/1 Odds to Win 2015-16 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship

The way-too-early odds for the 2015-16 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship are out. Place your bets! Michigan has 33/1 odds, meaning a winning $100 bet would pay $3,300, to win the 2015-16 NCAA Men's Basketball Championship, according to odds that Bovada has just released. Michigan's 33/1 odds are tied for the 16th-best among all D-I basketball schools and tied for the fourth-best among Big Ten schools. This seems to fall in line with how many project Michigan basketball will perform next season with the healthy return of Caris LeVert and Derrick Walton, the late-season progress from Zak...

Friday Michigan Recruiting Roundup: Top prospects including U-M in trimmed lists of schools

In this edition, a pair of 2016 targets have included Michigan in their top eight schools and the latest scholarship offers. As we inch closer and closer to the summer, recruiting for the 2016 cycle should pick up in the next few weeks or so. We are starting to see some of the top targets on the board narrow down their respective lists of schools, and a pair of players Michigan has been keeping an eye on did so on Thursday. Defensive tackle Jordan Elliott (Houston, Texas) and outside linebacker Lamar Winston (Portland, Oregon), both four-star prospects, revealed their top eight schools via...

Michigan Football Recruiting: Pair of top '17 OL from Washington offered

The Wolverines offered two of 2017's top offensive lineman while making the rounds through the state of Washington on Thursday The Michigan football coaching staff has been busy this week spreading out and offering prospects throughout the entire country. Thursday, the staff made its way through the state of Washington and offered a pair of the 2017 class' top offensive lineman. The biggest, and least surprising offer, went to Foster Sarell (Graham, Washington). This is an offer many expected to come sooner or later for awhile. #Michigan offers 2017 5* OL Foster Sarell, as we said they...

Dylan Larkin is Leaving Michigan Hockey

Larkin has signed a three-year ELC with the Detroit Red Wings. After one of the most prolific freshman campaigns in program history, Dylan Larkin has elected to forgo the remainder of his college career and turn pro.

Rick Neuheisel: Harbaugh "Jim Schwartzed me"

Rick Neuheisel appeared on the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday and shared an "awkward moment" with then-Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh. Jim Harbaugh has never been afraid of making enemies, this we already know. Harbaugh also happens to be very good at angering coaches or making a scene during postgame handshakes as well. There was "what's your deal?" with former USC head coach Pete Carroll and then there was the infamous post-game scuffle by former Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz. Did Harbaugh do it again with another coach? It appears to be that way. Former UCLA head coach Rick...

The Top 10 Football-Basketball Coaching Tandems in the Nation

We rank the 10 best football-basketball college coaching tandems in the nation, and the Big Ten has a firm grip at the top. Since Michigan hired Jim Harbaugh in late December, a thought that has crossed my mind once or twice is whether he and John Beilein constitute the best football-basketball coaching tandem in the nation. They're near the top, but I haven't taken the time to think it through or consider which other coaching tandems could supplant the the Harbaugh-Beilein combination. Until now. Last week, Rocky Top Talk, SB Nation's Tennessee team site, ranked the SEC's best coaching...

Hitting the Links Enjoys A Nighttime Stroll Previewing the Preview of Ohio State-Virginia Tech Virginia Tech faces their toughest test on the first game of the year, as they avoid Florida State or Clemson. The Hokies won 10 games every year from 2004-11, but are 22-17 since. That is part of the reason why, unfortunately, this game is setting itself up to be a blowout. Virginia Tech has a returning QB with some talent (Michael Brewer), but their offensive line is a bit of a wreck and will have to keep Bosa & Co. out of the backfield if Brewer has any success at all. Also, VT will be...

Report: Michigan expected to shuffle recruiting staff

A Scout.com report has Michigan football shuffling the roles of some members of the football recruiting staff. According to a report via Twitter by Scout.com's Sam Webb, the Michigan football program is expected to shuffle around roles on the recruiting staff. The origins of said shuffle likely originated due to Michigan and Director of Player Personnel Chris Singletary parting ways. This move was first reported by Steve Lorenz of 247Sports via Twitter. According to Lorenz, Michigan has no plans to fill the position vacated by Singletary. Webb took to Twitter on Saturday to report a few...

Friday Michigan Recruiting Roundup: "Aerial Assault" more ammo for Harbaugh, U-M

In this edition, Jim Harbaugh adds more recruiting ammo as we head into the summer. Also, we take a look at Michigan's latest scholarship offers. Recruiting at Michigan since Jim Harbaugh was hired has been interesting, to say the least. While the commitments have not dropped like many believed they initially would, we have seen the staff put together some interesting pitches and new ideas on the trail the likes of which we have never seen in Ann Arbor. Satellite camps and "Exposure U" are two of the biggest examples of this, but now they have taken it a step further. On...
