Imagine this. You have on you favorite college football jersey on, maybe enjoying an adult beverage or two while your sitting back on your sofa or recliner. You hit the button on the remote then you see it, college football is here! Well we aren’t there just yet but each week that passes is a week closer. […]
I have no idea why I even care … or is it more of grinding glass dust into the whiny eyes of the opposition? But, frankly, the opposition is Northwestern, Penn State, Indiana, and Illinois, so on and on. What I speak of here is the enemy – TTUN…the rodents of the road-kill state … […]
10-3 in the first year at TTUN. 39-24 college record overall – which includes Stanford and the University of San Diego. Signed as the 2nd highest paid college coach in all of the NCAA at $7,000,400 per year; that comes to $700,040 per victory. I speak of Jim Harbaugh – TTUN’s Head Coach. Yep! The […]
Wolverines or Buckeyes? Jim Harbaugh or Urban Meyer? Who will win on National Signing Day? Campus Insiders’ Ray Crawford breaks down which program will come out ahead between these “Recruiting Rivals.”
This week’s fans were lobbed a big, fat slow pitch softball, to steal a term from another sport. The Buckeyes fired on all cylinders against their biggest rival on Saturday and our participants had plenty to say! Big thank you to Micah @micaht22, Chris @chris_drake! Please give them a follow on twitter. Did the Buckeyes […]
It amazes me how motivating a loss can be and at the same time maybe Urban Meyer is just better at motivating players when they’re the underdogs. Let’s face it, the Buckeyes have won a lot of games in both respects and all it does is cement his legend when it comes to coaching in […]
(I think that Urban is addressing you) Well, that was satisfying, wasn’t it? After looking “flat” the previous week in their loss to Michigan State, the Buckeyes looked potent in their demolition on the Wolverines, 42-13. The defense continued its high level play against Michigan, and as you saw, the offense looked the way we’ve […]
I cannot think of a better way to wash the bad taste out of our mouths than beating the crap out of TTUN. I would like to win it all again, but the Buckeyes are on the outside looking in right now. They don’t have any magic up their sleeves as they wait for help […]
After Week 12, I (87 correct picks) am still maintaining a narrow lead over Joe (85), with Scott (83) and Charles (83) close behind. This is the final week to determine The Pick’em Champion. Things could get testy around here. All B1G teams are in action this week to wrap up the regular season. To […]
Roy Hall has been gracious enough to write out his Top Ten dont’s for the best week in college football. It’s Ohio State versus TTUN hate week and Roy tells it like it is around the players headed into this game. The Ohio State-M*chigan rivalry is the best rivalry ever! With that being said, there […]
As the game-winning field goal headed towards the uprights at Ohio Stadium, the Michigan State Spartans dashed both the Buckeyes’ and the Michigan Wolverines’ chances of heading to the College Football Playoff. With a soft schedule, the Buckeyes will not overcome the one loss as they will not play in the Big Ten Championship game […]
After Week 11, I (84 correct picks) am still maintaining a narrow lead over Joe (81), with Scott (79), Charles (79) and Patrick (78) close behind. All B1G teams are in action this week except for Nebraska. It’s probably just as well. We’re down to 2 regular season games before the BTCG. This isn’t over […]
After Week 8, I (73 correct picks) have a narrow lead over Joe (70), with Scott (69), Charles (68) and Patrick (68) close behind. Scott, Mike and Brandon all went 5-fer-5 to lead the pack last week. That was Scott’s second consecutive week of perfection. Very well done, Scott! All B1G teams are in action this […]
Games can be a nightmare or even cause you to have a bad day if your favorite one didn’t beat someone by a jazillion points. Such is the case with Ohio State fans and just about every slight this week is a shot at them! Enjoy! Kirk Barton will be a regular headliner here because […]

“I want to get rid of the word, ‘Michigan Man,’”- Paul Hackett, Interim Michigan AD. And today, with the hiring of former Wolverine Jim Harbaugh, Hackett and the folks in Ann Arbor have done just that. The phrase itself is a bit of a misnomer. It comes from the lips of the Wolverine’s greatest, most […]
Well, we already knew that. Now, Jim Harbaugh is the Prodigal Son, has returned home to Ann Arbor to be the head coach of the Michigan football team. After the end of Brady Hoke’s reign, Harbaugh was at, or near the top of most UM wish lists.
Harbaugh takes over at Michign after a four year stint as head coach with the San Francisco 49’ers. His college head coaching experience was with University of San Diego (2004-2006) and Stanford (2007-2010).
It seems that Michigan got their Man.
Just ask Dan Murphy at ESPN, who says Harbaugh was seen leaving the Detroit airport this evening….
Jim Harbaugh just left the Detroit Airport wearing a Michigan hat. Smiled and waved.

In an announcement this afternoon, interim Michigan Athletic director Jim Hackett announced that Coach Brady Hoke has been relieved of his duties effective immediately.
Hoke becomes the second coach terminated within the B1G Ten, joining Nebraska’s Bo Pelini, who was let go on Sunday after a 9-3 season. Somehow Tim Beckman and Kevin Wilson are still employed.
Hoke is 31-20 in his tenure in Ann Arbor, and was 5-7 this season. He is 1-3 in The Game, and winless against Urban Meyer.
After going 11-2 with Rich Rodriguez players his first season (including a BCS victory over Virginia Tech), Hoke has struggled to continue the momentum for the Wolverines. His staff recruited well during the summers, but repeatedly saw recruits switch to other programs before on on National Signing Day.
It has also not been announced who will coach Michigan in their bowl game in January.
I have a few additional thoughts about Saturday’s win in The Game that I want to touch upon today. My immediate post-game recap tends to be a stream-of-consciousness game flow effort. This has a bit more thought put to it. If you need a quick refresher on Saturday’s win over Michigan 42-28, go here, then breathe a […]
