Michigan Football recruiting update: rounding out 2014

Michigan Football has a strong 2014 recruiting class, currently ranked #12 by ESPN. It is a relatively small class with just 16 commits and there is little room for additional commits. However, with that being said, U-M could feasibly add as many as 3 more players to this class. Newly anointed offensive coordinator, Doug Nussmeier, should bolster Michigan’s stock with recruits...

Time running out on Michigan's athletic regime

Michigan football coach Brady Hoke is a loyal guy who doesn't take himself too seriously. In short, Hoke is everyman. That's why Hoke's abrupt dismissal of former offensive coordinator Al Borges on Wednesday and the can't-get-it-out-fast-enough announcement of his replacement, Doug Nussmeier, is puzzling. It's not Hoke's style. If Hoke really wanted to let...

Michigan’s Devin Gardner should dust off the WR play book in 2014

It is hard to imagine telling someone who had one of the best statistical seasons for a QB in Michigan history to switch back to a position he played for a few games in 2012, so why should Brady Hoke do it? Red Shirt Junior QB Devin Gardner just completed his first full season at the helm of the Wolverines and threw for almost 3,000 yards (2,960) ranking second all-time in passing...
