Michigan Tuesday: Football Coaches and Staff Need an Uber Account

Warde needs to consider giving the Michigan coaches and staff another job benefit.  An Uber account that they can use anytime.  A few weeks ago, newly hired DL coach Greg Scruggs was arrested for driving under the influence then resigned.  Now Denard Robinson has also been arrested for the same thing and got into an accident.  I feel terrible for the Michigan legend and also mad at him.  It is so easy getting an Uber or a Lyft when your out drinking or entertaining.  He is a Michigan legend and probably doesn't have to buy many drinks when he is out.  Having ..read more

Sports news is usually pretty slow mid-week.  That is why Mel Kiper's Mock Draft boards always show up on a Wednesday, so all the ESPN talking heads have something to discuss.   Today is no different.   The biggest Michigan news is former Wolverine Youssef Khayat has picked Bowling Green as his next destination.  He was rated the #406 overall player and 65th small forward in the portal.  Khayat played in 26 games in two years as a Wolverine averaged 1.4 points and 1.1 rebounds with an average o 6 minutes per game.   Speaking of Mel Kiper's mock dr ..read more

Michigan Tuesday: The UConn Model

Michigan Basketball is trying to rebuild from a failed experiment with one of its former stars.  Now, I don't 100% blame Juwan for Michigan's failure on the hardwood.  Admissions and lack of NIL resources also needs to own some of the failure.   What did we see on the court last night from UConn?  A number of players that executed in the system and no superstars.  They have a 7 footer to protect the rim, they run strong offensive sets with motion/movement, and they defend.  They don't have a KD or Melo to handle the load of the work, they play as a team in t ..read more

Michigan Monday: Total Eclipse of The Program

Michigan is doing an overhaul of its biggest programs.  Football reached the summit and then lost a majority of its coaching staff.  Basketball lost a ton of games, lost its coaching staff and most of its players.   Both programs have new head coaches and basketball needs a complete rebuild.   Let's hope its not a "total eclipse of our hearts" ?? Michigan is now rumored to be landing FAU Center Vlad Goldin.  This would be a nice addition.  Vlad has been getting better year over year.  He still plays a bit stiff and needs to improve from the line bu ..read more

Michigan Friday: Should We Be Worried About The Offense?
The Big House Blog
by Unknown
1w ago
I think we should.  The buzz out of Spring Ball is that the defense is dominating the offense.  That Michigan's defensive line and LB core are stifling the offense line and pressuring any QB that Michigan puts up there.   In the end, I think Michigan's offense line will be fine, not too many opponents will have 2 NFL 1st rounders on it.  Michigan is solid at TE and RB.  The issue is with the passing game, Orji is more of a runner then passer.  Davis I'm sure is talented but still young and inexperienced, Warren looked really good in a Spring Game a couple ye ..read more

Michigan Tuesday: Brian Jean-Mary

Michigan fans did not like that BJM was here for one bad year (2020) and then bolted to another gig at Tennessee.  Brian was known as a very good LB coach and an elite recruiter.   Things the Wolverine staff needed at the time.   It seems BJM really didn't want to leave either: "Even when I left, I told the guys I felt like the 2020 season was an incomplete part of my coaching career just because of COVID and the way things went," Jean-Mary said. "Even though leaving and going to another program, still felt a little bit of an attachment to the University of Michigan ..read more

My late father loved April Fools Day.  When we were young kids on Spring Break, he said the hotel was offering free elephant rides today.  All I had to do was call the front desk and reserve a spot.   Then when I was an adult working in A2 at Bell + Howell/UMS he sent me a Hedgehog for some type of charity event.  Miss you Dad.  This weekend Sherrone completed his on-field coaching staff again after Greg Scruggs flamed out quickly.   He hired current Co-DC/DL Coach from Memphis Lou Esposito.   Lou had only been with the Tigers since January af ..read more

Michigan Thursday: Help In the Recruiting Department

Sherrone said when he was hired that he wanted to add more resources to the recruiting department.  He delivered on that promise with the rumored hire of Georgia recruiting analyst John Collins and former Wolverine Jack Dunaway to Assistant Director of Recruiting roles.  It is also expected that Sherrone will be adding SMU Garrett Clawson as a special teams analyst.  Clawson is a former All-American kicker at Robert Morris.  Winning is about having great resources in all parts of the football organization.  These sound like some great hires.  Dusty is already ..read more
