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…

Michigan Monday: Wolverine Defense Doesn’t Budge, Badgers Badgers

The No. 4 Michigan Wolverines (5-0, 2-0) defeated the No. 8 Wisconsin Badgers (4-1, 1-1) 14-7 in Michigan Stadium on Saturday in a game that was never going to feature much scoring, but it could have featured more with slightly better quarterback play. This game was controlled by two iron-fisted defensive lines, but Michigan’s secondary proved to be the ultimate difference in this game, picking off three Badger passes and…

Michigan Monday: Maybe Penn State Can Be a Basketball School?

Well, what can you learn from something like this? Try analyzing Shaquille O’Neal posting up Mike from Accounting and see how much you can make of it. Michigan had the honor of playing Penn State on Saturday and they took that honor and crammed it down the Nittany Lions’ throats like the last bag of trash that you’re trying to get to fit into your garbage can. The Michigan defense…

Michigan Monday: The Legend of Jabrill Brasky

Michigan improved to 3-0 on the season with a 45-28 win over previously undefeated Colorado. It wasn’t easy, however, as the Buffs led 21-7 in the first quarter and even had the ball at the Michigan 11-yard line with that lead early in the second quarter (which, by the way, is exactly when I tweeted “Michigan by 17”). But as programs that are accustomed to losing do, Colorado found a…

Michigan Monday: Speight Is Enough

Michigan moved to 2-0 on the season thanks to an easy 51-14 win over a UCF team that thinks they know what they’re doing but doesn’t have the players to actually get it done. Michigan led 31-0 with 11:30 remaining in the second quarter, so please forgive me for only watching the first three quarters of this game. Don’t worry, though, I totally skimmed the box score play-by-play to see…

Michigan Football is in Need, So Ohio State Should Help Them Out

In sports, specifically where rivals are concerned, there is almost always a time and place for hostility and vitriol and rancor and acrimony and disdain and repulsion and animus, but there also comes a time when those things need to be temporarily put away when someone is in need. Unfortunately, that time has come. The University of Michigan football team is in need and the Ohio State Buckeyes are in…

The More Challenging 2016 Schedule, Michigan or Ohio State?

I was recently speaking to a Michigan fan who, despite a few adult beverages, seemed knowledgeable about his favorite program and college football in general. One comment he made to me was that the Wolverines’ football schedule was “certainly harder” than Ohio State’s. At the time I laughed it off and blamed it on his fandom and the booze, but after talking to other Michigan fans, I’ve realized this thought…

Buckeyes Don’t Plan on Changing What They Do in Michigan Just Because Jim Harbaugh’s Around

The Buckeyes are no strangers to having success in the state of Michigan, whether it’s between the white stripes of the football field or the yellow lines on the highways of the recruiting trail. Ohio State has won six of the last eight times they’ve been in Ann Arbor and they have yet to lose in East Lansing this century. But while they don’t play in the state of Michigan…

On the Origin of Committing by Means of Hatural Selection

  Hat Science was born in its current formal form on December 13, 2013 during the commitment ceremony of linebacker Raekwon McMillan. Back then, it was hardly the multi-dollar industry that it is now. How did it come to be the all-consuming study that it is today? I’m a pretty humble guy, so I’m not claiming that this is my discovery anymore than Isaac Newton claims that he discovered gravity,…
