Oh how we hate Ohio State

Wow. Now there was a game to help ease the pain of this uninspiring 7-5 season. We more than held our own against the undefeated Ohio State and almost pulled off what would have been a phenomenally exciting upset. While ultimately that didn't happen, we can at least appreciate how close we came...and how the [...]

Family feud: what do we really think of our Little Brother?

Remember this little stunt? Well, they'd better fire up their engines again because this Saturday is it: the Michigan-MSU football game. Last year, we continued a noble tradition of kicking Spartan ass (most of the time) and celebrated our 900th win ever to boot. The Paul Bunyan trophy is up for grabs again in East [...]

Suh-Stomp? Suh-Stopped

After rushing the field this weekend and soaking in the Michigan victory over Ohio State, it’s hard to think about other issues in sports. It seems as though Saturday's game is the only thing on a Michigan fan's mind-- the way the team went out there and “Suh-Stomped” the Buckeyes. Suh-Stomped? Oh yeah, the Lions played on Thursday.

The Game

It's finally here, the last game of the football season. What could be more appropriate than hosting our 108th meeting with the Ohio State, ranked by ESPN as the greatest North American sports rivalry? Though our last win in the series was in 2003, our boys coming off of their most complete performance of the [...]
