This story sounds a lot like what happened at Northwestern with Rashidi Wheeler in 2001. He was clearly struggling in a workout with no coaches around and no one did anything until it was too late. Hard to believe the stupidity; feel horrible for the family.

Don't know the true story, but this report is not the least bit credible

Think you make a good point about Courtney Smith being much better off if Zach kept his high-paying job at OSU. Things must have gotten really bad for her to repeatedly involve police. Wait no, she was crazy.

Wonder if he ever improved at "Equate meeting room?"

Think I'm more concerned with Kinnel/Metellus than anyone on D-Line.

My list would start with Shea, LT, RT, Black/DPJ.

Speight clearly deserved to start. I'll be asking myself for a long time, "How could JOK possibly have been that bad and how did he end up as the starting QB at Michigan?"

What if you get an order and then that order is not listed as one of your options?

05/25/2018 - 9:33am amway

Seems to me like there could be something to this. Izzo looking for a convenient exit and probably $20 mil guaranteed has his people reach out to NBA owners who are all from Michigan.

05/23/2018 - 11:15am Dickerson

He has a lot of shiftiness for a RB his size. Blazing speed is overrated for a RB, but he still ran away from people.

His high school reportedly hired Eric Dickerson as running backs coach.

05/16/2018 - 10:02pm maybe by leaving early

I think Michigan would have played in the national title game if Henson played his senior year. Lost 3 very winnable games and defense was better than expected

05/16/2018 - 9:37pm Agreed

I'd like to see them try the maize jerseys with white pants at an early-season non con when it's usually hot.

05/11/2018 - 11:30pm Why

Why doesn't the No. 1 seed play in the first quarterfinal? Haven't they earned the advantage of getting extra rest and not getting stuck starting a game at 10:15 p.m.?

05/11/2018 - 9:10pm Hinton

Thing about Hinton is he has a dad who played and probably much like Devin Bush Sr., he doesn't want his son going to a place where playing school is considered an annoyance.

05/11/2018 - 1:52pm Watched

I watched Carton play in an AAU game last summer. When it was over, I assumed he was about 6-4, but I see he's listed at 6-1. Impressive for a guy that size to play at the basket as much as he does.

05/09/2018 - 11:07am Central

But Shane played well at Central, especially late in the season. I think Michigan wins 2 or 3 more games last year if Shane stayed and JOK left.

Glad to see he's getting a look with the Lions.

05/01/2018 - 12:40pm Bucks

As a student got hit in the face with a roll of toilet paper at OSU, but was probably asking for it. And it's not like it hurt.

04/27/2018 - 11:07pm So

So cool Michigan is doing this. Rome and Paris in consecutive years -- nowhere else in college football can you get this experience.

04/25/2018 - 2:10pm old news

The allegations about Butler have been going on for a long time. At one point, a player on one of the early Penn State powerhouse teams kept playing for him while her sister was suing him for sexual abuse. It all kept blowing over, but some of his former players have stayed determined to make sure this remains in the public light.

Butler has been hovering between predator and powerful club coach for a couple of decades.

04/20/2018 - 10:32am How

How has the atmosphere changed at Michigan Stadium since they cracked down on carrying in alcohol? As I'm sure many of you remember, in the 80s and probably earlier, you could take a 12 pack, wrap it under your coat and walk right in.

04/20/2018 - 10:29am Ohio law

Did Ohio pass a state law requiring beer sales at all college football stadiums? It dominates that map.

04/19/2018 - 2:52pm paw

Paw Paw is my favorite stopping point on the drive from Chicago to AA. We need this guy!

04/05/2018 - 8:04pm chance

Is there a chance Jack plays at Michigan? Asking because I have no idea. That ESPN story was very confusing.

04/02/2018 - 9:18pm uh

Since when is Langford decent? Not in any games I watched.

04/02/2018 - 9:12pm advised

I want to know who was advising this kid when he was at LaLu. He's too young to know any better, but any informed adult should have been able to tell him Izzo wants bigs who do grunt work. Not a shock Izzo's approach was to bench him, since he had no idea what to do with him.

03/24/2018 - 10:41pm Third???

That was Florida State's third foul of the 2nd half?? Are they kidding???

This is the basketball version of a team committing pass interference on every play knowing they'll get tired of calling it.

03/19/2018 - 10:40am Better

Funny how Izzo used to complain about how he couldn't get in on the nation's top recruits and now that he has a few, he can't get past the second round.

A lot of coaches have co-opted his "our primary goal is to get more possessions, so our big guys do nothing but crash the boards and foul," but he might as well go back to his role-playing grinders. Guys who think they're superstars won't go for playing such a limited role.

Jaren Jackson will probably be a top-10 pick and Izzo had no idea what to do with him. He was just as invisible in the Big Ten tourney, and it's probably not possible for Langford to play any worse. He might as well transfer to EMU.

03/13/2018 - 10:53am No need

Don't think there's any need to villify Webber for the Ed Martin fiasco. Things got worse after the Fab Five was gone with the Bullock & Traylor teams, Steve Fischer allowing Martin to hang around, Mateen Cleaves car wreck, etc.

I could watch the clip of freshman Webber dunking on OSU in the regional final OT all day long.

03/07/2018 - 9:58pm Where

Where's the outrage over the Spartys practicing in another location during spring break?

03/07/2018 - 10:06am director

This guy's history seems to be sports performance and training; last year he was also director of football operations; a couple months ago, the university posted a job opening for director of football operations. Wonder if it was too big a job for one guy or that debacle at Purdue was an issue?

03/03/2018 - 10:41pm So easy

So easy to watch this game and think Sparty is a mess and those prized recruits are garbage (except Bridges, probably), but they are ranked No. 2, for now.

02/27/2018 - 12:29am Bass

I have a son and daughter in high school and Chuck Bass' post couldn't have been more accurate from my view. Daughter tries hard in school, son can't be pulled away from the video games and has to be told three times before he gets anything done.

They both spend too much time on their phones, but I don't get it. He plays two sports, has a chance to play in college and still wastes his time, doesn't try hard in school. We tried to keep him away from video games and phones, pushed him to read. But eventually, kids fall in line with their friends. It's hard to be the only kid without a phone or not allowed to play violent video games. In hindsight, wish I would have made him do more chores growing up.

Fortnight is a menace.

02/18/2018 - 4:53pm Tater

Is it just me, or did Jae'Sean Tate spend every minute of this game either shoving somebody or shuffling his pivot foot in the post? None of these violations was called, yet Michigan got several fouls for striking his outstretched palm with their chest. That 3-point opportunity late in the game was abusurd -- laid it in with one hand, shoved Wagner in the chest with his off hand, and got rewarded with a foul call. Why does Gene Steratore love him so?

02/16/2018 - 11:59pm No idea

Had no idea Davie was coaching anywhere. He was such a phony at ND, was painful to watch. 

02/01/2018 - 11:32am GB

Green Bay has been really good for a long time in women's hoops, so they built up some national respect. Not uncommon to see that team ranked.

Glad Borseth is happy and Michigan found a coach to take program up a notch. KBA has been recruiting well so hopefully it continues.

01/31/2018 - 9:32am story

That story was more about her than Izzo. I'm so impressed Lupe invited her to stay at the Travis Walton suite whenever she returned to EL.

01/29/2018 - 1:35am Good call

"My bet is we will be hearing a lot more from this promising young coach in the years to come."


01/29/2018 - 1:26am kudos

Kudos to that reporter. It's not easy to stand up there and ask questions that make everyone uncomfortable and never flinch.

01/22/2018 - 3:46pm Bruin

Thought for sure he was headed to UCLA after seeing all those IGs he posted from LA. Reunite with Jed, Rosen leaving early -- it made sense.

01/11/2018 - 11:46am Izzo style

Since the beginning of the season, I've been wondering if this MSU team is headed for disappointment. Just watching Izzo's teams over the years, they've relied on a model of players in specific roles. The little guards take most of the shots and the big men are expected to chase offensive rebounds so they can pitch it back out to the guard and then foul a lot on defense.

The fast start showed how much talent this team has. But it will be interesting to see how it plays out as "five guys who think they're stars" intersect with Izzo's "know your role" style.

01/02/2018 - 11:16am complaint

My only real complaint with Harbaugh is blowing 10-point leads at Iowa and OSU last year. It could have been a brilliant second season.

We all knew this had a chance to be a reload year with so many starters/NFL draftees lost. We all knew there were gaping holes in recruiting from the Bad Hoke years at OL, WR and QB.

In a very good year for the Big Ten, Michigan lost to three better teams and lost a few times due in large part to horrible QB play. There is every reason to be optimistic about next season and the fact there will be no more glaring voids in personnel for the rest of the Harbaugh era.

12/25/2017 - 7:33pm Popowski

I hope people will also take a look at the GoFundMe for former Michigan OL Bob Popowski, who is suffering from Huntington's disease.

He wasn't a star, but he's someone I remember from the early 80s teams. I remember playing pick up basketball at the CCRB with him and Art Balourdos on my team.


Zach Shaw wrote a story about his plight; not sure if there's been a separate thread on it.…


12/07/2017 - 3:36pm Read

Read a story last week that Brandon and his Toys R Us pals were trying to pay themselves bonuses of $8-16 million and the bankruptcy judge told them they were insane. They claimed the bonuses were necessary to maintain morale.

12/01/2017 - 10:10am this

This guy belongs at UConn

11/28/2017 - 12:35pm We'll

We'll never know everything that goes on behind the scenes, but it sickens me that he encourages his players to be cheap-shot artists. This has been evident for years and again in the Michigan game when MSU twice got personal fouls for taking a run at O'Korn after a turnover. D'Antonio's style is to encourage dirty hits, then cover it up by going ballistic about stupid shit like Brady Hoke's tent spike.
