Reminding Us Why We Love Basketball

Reminding Us Why We Love Basketball

I will never forget this run. I don’t think a single person associated with the Michigan Wolverines will forget these past couple of months, starting with an emphatic win against the Spartans, continuing through a plane crash in the big ten tournament, and culminating with a trip to the Sweet 16. I am so unbelievably […]

MICHIGAN TAKES DOWN LOUISVILLE

MICHIGAN TAKES DOWN LOUISVILLE

The Wolverines rallied from a second half deficit to defeat the #2 seed in their bracket by four points with an emphatic block to end the game. Derrick Walton Jr. made a clutch bucket in the waning minutes up two, and young D.J. Wilson continued his solid free throw shooting with four out of four […]

Michigan Wins Big Ten Tournament

Michigan Wins Big Ten Tournament

Extremely Proud of You, Blue

Down 20-6 at halftime, and 17-3 early on, it’d have been pretty easy to lay down and let Florida State seize the Orange Bowl for good. Instead, #6 ranked Michigan gave the audience an all-time game, falling one-point short after the referees missed an obvious call to end the game. Michigan gave up several uncharacteristic […]

Michigan Shines in Unfortunate Loss

The Wolverines truly outplayed Ohio State in every faze of the game – but some untimely penalties plus turnovers equaled an unfortunate loss. In their 2nd season under Jim Harbaugh, Michigan was ranked in the upper echelon all season. I can’t imagine that either Penn State or Wisconsin, two teams we beat, will hoist the […]

THANK GOD THAT’S OVER

OF COURSE it couldn’t be easy. Despite leading 27-10 at halftime, the Spartans came within a score of 2nd ranked Michigan before Heisman Trophy-Candidate Jabrill Peppers returned the 2-point conversion try for the insurmountable lead. Luckily, Mark Dantonio’s ego prevented his team from putting the pressure back on the Wolverines, who were all too familiar […]

Glasses or No?

I watched Jim Harbaugh furiously pace the sidelines with every insane delayed false start penalty right before the second quarter closed, and he made the same adjustment at halftime I did: he threw on the glasses. At first, they seem so perfect. You can filter life’s choices a little faster, literally see more… but is […]

Wolverines Hold Strong to Defeat Colorado

I slept in quite late, yet it was only halftime. I quickly learned Michigan led 24-21 despite trailing 14-0 to begin the game. They took the second half possession and soon scored on a deep pass, leading 28-24. That would be the last time we allowed them to score. Game MVP Jabrill Peppers returned the […]

Wolverines Debut Strong

With Charles Woodson, Michael Jordan, and Derek Jeter in the house, Harbaugh’s troops did not disappoint. True freshman Chris Evans ran for over 100 yards, the defense took two interceptions to the house for scores, and our QB easily threw 3 TDs en route to the 63-3 massacre. Keep it up, Blue!

Fox Sports Keeps Sinking

Apparently, my timing to eviscerate Trevor Thompson couldn’t have been more on point. The over-smiling freak had this to say about East Lansing product Connor Cook, who sacrificed his body his senior season to earn a Final Four boost and play for the college football championship: The way #ConnorCook dissed #ArchieGriffin it's no wonder he […]

No Coaching on Sunday?

I knew mailmen didn’t deliver on the Holy Day, but, apparently, neither do coaches! My usual clutch Michigan coach John Beilein allowed Maryland to build a tremendous early lead, leaving his team to the mercy of the TV timeout. In the end, we nearly won, and much like my Detroit Pistons, the amount of energy […]

Michigan Topples #3 Maryland in Ann Arbor

Without seniors Spike Albrecht and Caris LeVert, the Wolverines withheld the onslaught from the visiting third-ranked team in the country. Speaking of country, Barack Obama is one incredible human being. His State of the Union address may have been his finest ever, articulating every key issue with grace and humility, while providing clear-cut solutions. I […]

A Bowl to Remember: Michigan Dominates Florida for Citrus Bowl Victory

You might see 41-7 on the bottom line and mistake it for a fluffy, easy win. This was not the case. The first half was very close, and without several halftime adjustments, in their home state of Florida, we were going to get screwed. Atrocious reffing had a snarf extremely worried early on. On the […]

Liberty with our Hearts

No matter who wins tonight, specifically in the late night Alabama-MSU game, one city is going to be lit on fire. This is a complete disaster waiting to happen. Because the money wizards at the college Hell factory know we’ll be home watching TV, they arranged for two games today. Four o’clock is ok, because […]

Michigan Makes New Year’s Bowl

When you’re all hungover from watching State the night before on New Year’s Eve, tune into the Citrus Bowl to watch us take on Florida at 1 PM! What a turnaround it’s been in only one season from Jim Harbaugh. This is quite the victory in itself after missing out on bowl season last year. […]

Bill Walton: Keeping the Faith

Just when we needed him most, Billy W swoops in for the reply on Twitter! @ElSportingSnarf I have tomorrow's morning games — Bill Walton (@BillWalton) November 25, 2015 That final game he would announce, UNLV-Indiana, was a sensational game filled with more anecdotes and Walton wisdoms. Here they are: “This is about to be the […]

Tough 2nd Half Derails Blue

This was a game we honestly could have won. Instead, we try and gather ourselves knowing a nine-win season is nothing to frown on, especially in a coach’s first season. Let Jim Harbaugh acquire his own recruits for 2-3 years and then see what happens.  We still had a chance today. We moved the ball past […]

More Greatness from Billy W.

How blessed are we? Bill Walton is announcing this whole fucking Maui tournament! (Or so it seems!) Here are some gems I took down during his broadcasting of Chaminade-UNLV: At 6-1, minutes into action: “Let’s just call the game and give it to Chaminade right now.” Other announcer: Really? “Throw it down one time big […]
