Harbaugh’s high expectations are what’s needed: “We’ve got to win all our games”

Harbaugh’s high expectations are what’s needed: “We’ve got to win all our games”

The best is yet to come? Jim Harbaugh once said “By your fruit you will be known. By your talent, by your effort in football you shall be known.” And he wants Michigan to be known at the highest of levels, he wants them to be known as champions. The Michigan Wolverines finished the 2017 regular season 8-4, a record that is better than mediocre, but not acceptable under the standards Harbaugh has set for the program. At Michigan’s football awards banquet last night, Harbaugh made it known what the goal is. "We've got to win all our games. That's what we're striving for." he told the...

Michigan fends off obstacles, takes down Texas on the road

Abdur-Rahkman was there for Michigan when they needed him most to lead the Wolverines past the Longhorns. When the tough got going, and Moritz Wagner went down, Michigan needed someone to answer the call late when the game got close. Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman was there to pick it up. With a pair of clutch shots down the stretch and a team-high 17 points, the senior led the Wolverines to a hard-fought 59-52 win against Texas on Tuesday night from the Frank Erwin Center. The win moves U-M on to 9-3 (1-1 Big Ten) this season, giving them there first notable road victory of the season. How it...

Breaking a trend: Michigan looks to break bad road habits against Texas

Breaking a trend: Michigan looks to break bad road habits against Texas

While the Wolverines have shown stretches of how good they can be on the road, they have allowed the bad stretches to be too much to overcome at times. Tonight, they look to end that. Before heading the Maui Invitational, Michigan head coach John Beilein said the Wolverines “weren’t a good team yet” but they are getting better. After a heartbreaking loss to LSU in the opener of the tournament U-M let get away, the Wolverines were able to close out the game against VCU and maybe figured something out. North Carolina made sure to open those questions again. U-M played right with the Tar...

2018 recruit Jarrett Patterson on his official visit "Amazing, Michigan delivered"

Patterson was impressed with Ann Arbor and the Wolverines are in the mix with UCLA Michigan fans have seen a consistently dominant defense over the past few years. With Don Brown and the young talent on that side of the ball developing well, fans are now hoping for an improved offense to help the team become a national contender. The addition of Shea Patterson to the quarterback room provides added depth to an already talented young group that helps solve that problem on paper and film at least. The other unit that needs the most improvement is the offensive line. One of the several...

The Outback Bowl will be an important game for Peters With quarterback Shea Patterson now a Michigan Wolverine, Brandon Peters has more competition to deal with this offseason. But Patterson isn’t on the roster just yet, and a big opportunity awaits Peters in a few weeks to create a lasting impression on the Michigan coaching staff. The time is now for Peters, who knows what next season will bring. His time to make his case for 2018 will be at the Outback Bowl, as the starting quarterback for the Michigan Wolverines. We’ve seen how things can change in a hurry. First, Wilton Speight...

Charles Matthews, Duncan Robinson need to find consistency for the Wolverines

The two Wolverines are struggling in different aspects of the game, and they need to turn it around quick. The Michigan basketball team trailed by 15 points to the UCLA Bruins at home Saturday afternoon with less than 15 minutes to play. Luckily for Michigan, the Bruins had more turnovers than your local bakery, giving the Wolverines chance after chance to make the their comeback win. Michigan did just that, coming back from 15 points down to shock the Bruins in overtime 78-69. The biggest reason for that 15-point margin was due to the team’s poor free-throw shooting. The Wolverines...

The Wolverines were down by 15 points in the second half, forced overtime and won The scene was set — the Maize Rage was out in full trolling force with Chinese flags and giant LaVar Ball heads front and center. With no one with the last name of “Ball” in Ann Arbor this weekend, and a few big time football recruits in town for a visit, you would think that may be enough to get an actual win for the men’s basketball team, right? Well, it took a while to get there, but those things may have very well assisted. The Wolverines defeated the UCLA Bruins 78-69 in overtime on Saturday at...

NFL Can Wait: Chase Winovich should return to Michigan

Don Brown needs his “dude” back When it comes to NFL scouts, not every player will receive the recognition and draft grade Michigan defensive lineman Maurice Hurst has. Redshirt Junior Chase Winovich may fall into that category. Make no mistake, Winovich was a certified badass for Michigan in 2017, racking up 17.5 tackles for loss, 8 sacks, 74 total tackles (29 solo), and 2 forced fumbles. Those are elite numbers. Winovich returning or not will hinge partly on the grade he receives by the NFL College Advisory Committee (CAC), which reviews prospects film and lets them know where they...

Don’t worry; no one from the Ball family will be invading Ann Arbor today Good morning, Michigan fans, and welcome to this year’s first Michigan basketball game thread. Today is a very interesting day in Ann Arbor for two reasons: 1) Michigan basketball looks to seek revenge against the UCLA Bruins, a team that defeated the Wolverines in California last season. 2) Michigan football is playing host to several recruits this weekend, but none bigger than three former Ole Miss players that are aiming to transfer.

Michigan DB coach Brian Smith is departing for Rice University, per ESPN

The coaching carousel has begun once again. Michigan’s second and sometimes overlooked defensive backs coach, Brian Smith, has agreed to take the defensive coordinator duties at Rice University, which went 1-11 and 1-7 in Conference-USA this season. Smith was undoubtedly a valuable part on Michigan’s staff, and helped build two terrific secondaries at U-M. But this will also be an interesting opportunity for Jim Harbaugh to take his staff in a new direction - as we saw last year when Harbaugh replaced running backs coach Tyrone Wheatley with another O-line coach in Greg Frey, there are...
