Michigan QB Wilton Speight Looking Better Per Non-Doctor Jim Harbaugh, Who, Again, is Not a Doctor

Michigan starting quarterback Wilton Speight is still day-to-day with a shoulder injury that he suffered two weeks ago in a loss at Iowa. U of M head coach Jim Harbaugh spoke with the media on Monday and was asked about his quarterback. “I don’t have an update today,” he told reporters, adding that he hadn’t received that day’s medical evaluation yet. “It hasn’t changed, it’s a day-to-day process and evaluation.”…

Michigan Game is Personal for Mike Weber, Which Could Be Bad News for Wolverines

Ohio State Buckeyes running back Mike Weber was imported from Detroit, Michigan. It was not just a shirt worn by Weber when he arrived as a freshman, but a mentality. A high school All-American at Detroit Cass Tech, Weber was a toss up as to whether he would end up at Ohio State or Michigan. Some will tell you that he went to bed the night before signing day as…

Michigan Monday: A Most Hostile Homecoming

A year ago, Maryland head coach D.J. Durkin was Michigan’s defensive coordinator, which made this past weekend’s game against the Wolverines (9-0, 6-0) somewhat of a homecoming. Unfortunately for him, that homecoming didn’t go all that well, as Michigan welcomed him back with a 59-3 list of chores that included both toilets and gutters. The Terrapins (5-4, 2-4) were undermanned, overmatched, and everything in between. Michigan outgained Maryland 660 to…

Michigan State drove the ball right down the field for a touchdown on their first possession, officially welcoming the Wolverines to life on the road. Michigan bounced…

Michigan Monday: Everybody Hates Rutgers

I foolishly thought I had seen everything when it came to B1G football, but Saturday was a new low. Rutgers (2-4, 0-3) had nearly 200 recruits on hand to witness the unrelenting devastation of a 78-0 loss to Michigan (6-0, 3-0). The Rutgers sideline looked like the aftermath of the Mount St. Helens eruption. Recruiting hosts and staff were laid one on top of the other like pummeled timber because…
