Posted on Posted in Big Ten, Michigan Basketball

Can Michigan play at home every night? No, seriously. The Wolverines have been on a tear at the Crisler Center recently at capped the home-stand off with a huge win over No. 14 Purdue on senior day Saturday. Derrick Walton, Zak Irvin, Mark Donnal, Andrew Dakich and Sean Lonnergan were all sent off with roses in their hands and a W on the scoreboard. U-M […]

Where Michigan goes from here

Well most eyes were on the NBA All-Star game last night, a select few people in America had their eyes on a college basketball game. For those who did pick the Michigan versus Minnesota game, they got to watch a “barn burner”. With the physicality evident on both teams, it was a back and fourth battle where both teams desperately were looking to build their […]

The Zak Irvin of old revealed himself in a big way last night for the U-M basketball team. The senior, who had been in a monumental slump the team’s last four games, broke out with 18 points to lead Michigan to a huge 64-58 win over No. 11 Wisconsin at the Crisler Center. Irvin shot 6 of 12 from the field and added five rebounds, […]

Five days after delivering Michigan State its largest conference loss in 14 years and ending a five-game skid against the Spartans, the Michigan men’s basketball team had the chance to vanquish more demons when it traveled to Bloomington, Indiana on Sunday. After beating the Hoosiers by 30 points two weeks ago, the Wolverines defeated IU 75-63 for their first win at Assembly Hall since 2009 […]

Wolverines lose heartbreaker to Buckeyes

Posted on Posted in Big Ten, Big Ten Conference, Michigan Basketball, TBHR

Absolutely pathetic. That’s the only way I can summarize Michigan’s performance from last night. After a tough loss against Michigan State on Sunday, the Wolverines returned to Ann Arbor to face its other rival, Ohio State on Saturday. Just like in East Lansing, senior Derrick Walton was the only player who stepped up for the Wolverines (14-9, 5-6 Big Ten), who lost 70-66 to the […]

Time is running out on Michigan and its seniors

Posted on Posted in Big Ten, Michigan Basketball, Opinion

For the third year in a row, a trip to NCAA Tournament is questionable for the Michigan Wolverines.  On Feb. 23rd, 2014, Nik Stauskas exploded in the second half, tallying 25 points to lead Michigan to its first season series sweep of Michigan State since 2011. It was the Wolverines’ sixth win in the last eight tries against the Spartans. During that stretch, Michigan booked a trip to […]

Sunday morning in my house typically goes something like this: I read the New York Times, my husband Brandon makes coffee and then descends into the internet rabbit hole of Michigan football post-game analysis, sometimes fighting with people  before eventually giving up and playing video games. This morning, after yesterday’s stupid Indiana game, he spent roughly two hours researching weather conditions and compiling a spreadsheet […]

9-1 But They Aren’t Done: A Pump Up Column To The Team

Posted on Posted in Big Ten, Michigan Football

Sunday, Nov. 13, 2016. 1:08 a.m. Saturday Night Live just ended, and I am beat. It’s been a long afternoon, and night, of college football, and my life in general. My headache is beginning to decay as the night slowly dies down and I begin to gather my thoughts on Michigan’s 14-13 loss at Iowa, a place the Wolverines still haven’t won at since 2005. […]
