Snarf (snärf): A humorous occurrence and/or person, specifically one relating to the world of sport

About Us

The Sporting Snarf is a website dedicated to the enjoyable, humorous, and nuanced aspects of the sporting and (to a lesser extent) pop-culture world. We attempt to touch upon, in varying degrees of print/video length, engaging topics which are not discussed nearly enough.

We'd love for you to give us your perspective, network, and participate regularly. But if you'd just like to join in on the mob-mentality and get all sanctimonious on a particular sports figure -- head on over to (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.

Michigan Survives Northwestern for BIG Big Ten Win

“BIG” But seriously – it was a close one. Michigan improves to 4-2 in the Big Ten after winning 56-54. With all these new teams trying to snarf us (*cough* Maryland), it’ll be even more bull shit to overcome. An 18-0 run in the first half gave the Wolverines an early edge at Crisler. You […]

Michigan Hangs on at the Buzzer!

I turned on the TV looking for the Pistons game only to find myself center stage with the Wolverines and Syracuse, 20 seconds left, Michigan up by one. Inbounding. Here we go! After getting the ball to Derrick Walton, Jr., he went to the free throw line on a one-and-one. Walton hit the front of […]

One Shining Moment

No Justice: Mitch McGary Can’t Even Blow Trees in Ann Arbor

Damn. Maybe I had it more relaxing in certain ways than these student-athletes. MM can’t even puff in a city where it’s essentially legalized. It is decriminalized, and you’ll only receive a ticket like a parking fine. “One night in mid-March, with the NCAA tournament about to begin without him, McGary was hanging out with […]

Spartans Outlast Virginia to Round Out Elite 8

It was a similar finish to the Michigan game. Down two, Virginia heaved a half court buzzer-beater and bricked. These eight teams will try and win their respective regions and cut down the nets this weekend (Snarfs pick): Florida vs. Dayton (Flyers) Wisconsin vs. Arizona (Wildcats) Michigan State vs. Connecticut (Spartans) Michigan vs. Kentucky (Wolverines)

Michigan Hangs On

We really played well. Things just got a little sketchy at the end… The Wolverines led 45-34 at halftime. We essentially kept a double-digit lead all the way through to 70-60 with 3:41 to play. Then, the Volunteers started to make buckets. After a Jordan Morgan dunk, Michigan only scored one point in the final […]

Strong Day for State of Michigan

In addition to the Wolverines advancing to the Sweet 16, Michigan State made it for back-to-back years by both schools. Last season was the first time it’d ever been done. The Spartans beat Harvard, who were coached by former Michigan head coach Tommy Amaker. Also, the Detroit Red Wings beat the Wild in Minnesota 3-2. […]

Michigan Beats Texas 79-65 to Make Sweet 16

The NCAA Tournament is loco. My blood is now officially at boiling room temperature for the next weeks. Michigan started a little slow, but Big Ten Player of the Year Nik Stauskas made our first two shots, both 3’s, to keep it even early. The Wolverines honestly played great except for surrendering offensive rebounds. We […]
