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 ESPN.com. (Mickey Mouse welcomes you.) Or you can keep it real with us.

Please, Bring This MotherFucker Down

This is Jameis Winston’s actual statement from Florida State’s hearing earlier this week on the matter: Rape is a vicious crime. The only thing as vicious as rape is falsely accusing someone of rape.  (Pin drop.) Winston goes on to whine and cry about how his life has been so hard since being accused. You know, staying in school, [...]

O-Verrated

Both Michigan & Michigan State had the Luckeyes in the first half, and a poor close to the second quarter by each team fed the false bravado that is Ohio State. Our defense shut them down, leading 14-7 with their only score on an interception. It’s like everyone let’s them get it their heads. Are they really that good? SUBURBA [...]

Michigan Robbed

Exhibit A) Michigan emphatically scooped up a Maryland punt AND TOOK IT TO THE HOUSE – only to have it called back on a weak penalty. We would not score on the drive. B) Maryland makes a field goal, only to have their kicker flop to the ground on innocent contact. The kicker was then seen dancing off the field. You cannot make this shit [...]

Michigan Holds Off Northwestern

It was not like the Ohio State-Michigan State shootout. Instead, the score was 0-0 at halftime. The Wolverines turned it over twice in the Wildcats red zone, then had a field goal blocked right before the half. Their defense, however, maintained, and our running game was active. Good signs. Back De’Veon Smith rushed for the game’s [...]

Calm Down, Spartans

You won.

Not Looking Good for the Rapist

“No one who is not a dealer is going to submit that many autographs at one time,” said Matt Powers of Powers Collectibles in Kansas City, which sells the autographs of more than 1,000 athletes. “But besides the number, the giveaway of the JSA authenticated items that you can see on eBay, that suggests it was a sit-down signi [...]

Michigan Tops Penn State

Looking spectacular in their all-blue night uniforms, Michigan ended it’s three game losing streak with a defensive triumph over Penn State – “Da Pervs.” Our quarterback was banged up, but he still went back into the game after sitting out. Our defense allowed zero fourth quarter points and took the game home on a safe [...]

Rutgers Snarfs Michigan

Big Ten, who are we kidding ourselves? The kids are traveling cross country for these in conference games now. Michigan barely lost (by two) on the road in Rutgers. A last-minute field goal was blocked by the Scarlet Knights, who apparently excel in that area. However, it only came down to that because of some gay college ruling that doesn [...]

Michigan Tops Miami (OH)

It was only 10-10 in the second quarter, but Michigan finished with 24 unanswered points in the Big House for the victory. The Wolverines ran for 276 yards on 45 carries while allowing just 31 rushing yards to the Redhawks. Derrick Green lead the way for the Blue with 137 yards on 22 tries, including two touchdowns. Two Michigan fumbles didn& [...]

Brutal Day for Big Ten

Smoke up, snarfs. It’s Sunday.

Michigan Avenges Appalachian State

Brady Hoke clearly has these ’14 Wolverines ready. Devin Gardner tossed 13 of 14 passes for completions, including two touchdowns on his first two possessions to Devin Funchess for a 14-0 lead after one. The tandem made it three straight to start the game in the second quarter. Both Michigan running backs also tore it up, each eclipsing [...]

Northwestern Wildcats Football Takes ...

“The NCAA invented the term student-athlete to prevent the exact ruling that was made today. For 60 years, people have bought into the notion that they are students only. The reality is players are employees, and today’s ruling confirms that. The players are one giant step closer to justice.” via Northwestern Wildcats footba [...]
