5/24/2022
Michigan football has a wealth of wide receivers heading into 2022. From Ronnie Bell returning after an early-season injury, to Cornelius Johnson, Roman Wilson, A.J.

5/18/2022
We're back onto our position previews, this time, looking at one of Michigan football's most dynamic positions in 2021: the running backs.

We delve into Corum and Edwards, and then discuss the rest of the unit, as well as some tertiary production expected from some other positional players.

Why doesn't Michigan football get the benefit of the doubt after success?

4/21/2022
College football media tends to have an awfully short memory. Perhaps too short. When a team is good one season, they're automatically expected to be great the following year. Of course, there are some exceptions -- Texas and USC come to mind, as they're annually expected to be great, no matter what happened the year before. But Michigan? Sometimes it's in the Texas/USC boat. Other times, not so much. Advanced analytics expects Michigan to be good, but Mike Farrell, formerly of Rivals, put...

Opinion of Colin Kaepernick as Michigan football honorary spring game captain

3/31/2022
On Wednesday night, Michigan football announced that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick -- perhaps more famous for kneeling during the national anthem before NFL games -- is the Wolverines' honorary captain for Saturday's spring game. Of course, there has since been a lot of controversy among much of the maize and blue faithful. We give our stance as to why it's relatively inane in our eyes. Also, digging into some of the things that Kris Jenkins Jr., Jaylen Harrell, and...

Reasons for optimism -- so why aren't Michigan fans more optimistic?

3/29/2022
It's been an interesting offseason, from a production and non-revenue sports standpoint. Michigan athletics is enjoying an incredible boon, and while there's been excitement surrounding women's basketball and men's hockey, spring football just doesn't seem like it's generating the same kind of interest as it once has. We discuss that, but before we do, we get into things that Michigan football defensive line coach Mike Elston said on Tuesday, along with tight ends coach Grant Newsome. We...
