This Whole Report For A H.S. Football Title Game Is A Local News Gem

You probably don't care about Michigan high school football, but FOX 2's Charlie Langton's report about a title game between Warren De La Salle and Muskegon Mona Shores should entertain you anyway. It's perfect. The damn thing starts out with Langton yelling as he's walking across the field, and gets better from there. » 11/30/14 8:55pm 11/30/14 8:55pm

Pint-Sized Weezer Cover Band Comes Undone In 30 Seconds

This four-piece band from Michigan's Grosse Pointe Music Academy already seems nervous to be playing at a recital in front of people, but they start their cover of Weezer's "Undone—The Sweater Song" with no problem.

Michigan Ties Northwestern With Frantic Field Goal As Time Expires

Northwestern had this game in the bag and somehow this happened. Aside from what seemed like dozens of dropped interceptions, the defense had Devin Gardner stopped on fourth-and-four rush with under two minutes left but two defenders ran into each other and he slid away, getting a first down and extending the drive… » 11/16/13 6:55pm 11/16/13 6:55pm

Michigan Misses All The Free Throws, Wins Ugly Against Syracuse Anyway

A wire-to-wire (foul-fest, timeout-filled, commercial-break heavy) battle ended in Jim Boeheim making a number of very Jim Boeheim faces and a relatively easy call for the refs: Jordan Morgan taking a charge from Brandon Triche with 20 seconds left, which, in hindsight, finished off Syracuse.

Reports: The Big Ten Wants Maryland And Rutgers

Pat Forde and ESPN are reporting that serious talks are afoot to fold Maryland and Rutgers into the Big Ten. Not only would that create a 14-member conference that'd surely be the biggest Ten in the world, it would reopen the scabby wound of major conference realignment.

In Michigan, The Grandmas Shotgun Beers Better Than You

Who says you can never relive the glory days? Who says you can't do it at age 85, in a parking lot, wearing a pair of jorts and a Michigan Wolverines windbreaker as you inhale the contents of a Keystone Light Michelob Ultra in just under ten seconds?

The Best Player In Ohio Commits To Michigan

Remember this darling cherubic face, Ohioans, because he just decommitted from The University and committed to one in Michigan. You know the one.
