Double Plane Crash Survivor Austin Hatch Scores First College Point

On June 15, 2011, Austin Hatch signed a commitment to play college basketball at Michigan. Just a nine days later he was involved in a plane crash that killed his pilot father and stepmother, and resulted in him being put into a medically induced coma. This was eight years after he and his father survived a plane… » 11/10/14 10:51pm 11/10/14 10:51pm

Northwestern Reaches New Low, Falls Down On Last Play, Loses

We told you earlier that Northwestern and Michigan were playing a hilariously bad contest today. Even with some points, the second half topped the atrocious first. More poor special teams, muffed punts and interceptions weaved throughout the half. Northwestern started one drive off an interception at the Michigan 15,… » 11/08/14 6:58pm 11/08/14 6:58pm

Michigan Gets Asses Kicked After Defacing Spartan Stadium With Spike

Can we talk about how weird and stupid this is? This is the Michigan Wolverines football team—awful in every way, from the tactical to the executive to the medical—shoving a spike into the Spartan Stadium turf and celebrating like a bunch of morons just prior to getting their shit kicked in by Michigan State 35-11. » 10/26/14 1:56am 10/26/14 1:56am

Michigan Tailgater Gives Pregame Speech Like He's A Real Player

Michigan's had a pretty tough go of it so far this season, so the team was no doubt needing some extra motivation heading into last weekend's game against Penn State. They did not get that motivation from this bro's rousing pregame speech, though, because this bro is not on the football team. He's just a dude at a… » 10/16/14 11:58am 10/16/14 11:58am

Michigan Students Rally Against AD Dave Brandon's Incompetence

College students are lazy, apathetic creatures who only get excited by free pizza, which makes the fact that hundreds of University of Michigan students protested athletic director Dave Brandon's continued employment by the school all the more amazing. A "Fire Dave Brandon" rally was held tonight on the campus Diag,… » 9/30/14 11:46pm 9/30/14 11:46pm

Michigan's Problem Isn't Commercialism; Michigan's Problem Is It Stinks

Recently, I've been reading about Michigan's attendance woes (which only really count as "woes" if you consider a college selling out 95 percent of a 100,000-seat stadium at $75+, plus an unspecified donation per ticket, woeful), and it occurs to me that lay people and economists think very differently about how… » 9/29/14 3:29pm 9/29/14 3:29pm

Michigan Head Coach Brady Hoke: "I Don't Make Decisions On Who Plays"

Brady Hoke deflected criticism about the handling of dazed quarterback Shane Morris Saturday during his weekly press conference today, claiming the Michigan head coach doesn't "make decisions on who plays, who doesn't play." When asked if Morris—who took a nasty, and illegal, shot to the head but was re-inserted into… » 9/29/14 2:50pm 9/29/14 2:50pm

Brady Hoke's Dangerous Incompetence So Bad ESPN Announcers Denounce It

Michigan quarterback Shane Morris took a nasty, and illegal, hit to the skull in the fourth quarter of last night's loss to Minnesota. Not only was Morris immediately re-inserted into the game, but Wolverines head coach Brady Hoke claimed " I didn't know if [Morris] had a concussion or not." » 9/28/14 9:00am 9/28/14 9:00am

Michigan Pretends It Isn't Desperate To Give Away Tickets

I won't make fun of Michigan football for practically giving away tickets to keep its 100,000-plus attendance streak alive. The team's crummy, Saturday's opponent is Minnesota, and even a storied program has to hustle sometimes. But I will make fun of Michigan football for being so sensitive that it totally reversed… » 9/23/14 8:44am 9/23/14 8:44am
