This is not a good look, Dave Brandon

Michigan Athletic Director Dave Brandon does not look good here. Some people need to re-evaluate their priorities in life. Responding like a smug prick to not-even-what-should-be-considered-hate mail probably falls right below “Pissing and moaning in an email to my favorite team’s AD (or GM or head coach).” If you want to complain about your favorite team all so the head […]

A look ahead at the Lions schedule

The Detroit Lions have been one of the NFL’s best surprises, riding a league-leading defense to a 6-2 mark through eight weeks. Despite a shaky offense and missing stud wide receiver Calvin Johnson at times, the team has leaned hard on their gritty defense and some clutch plays by quarterback Matthew Stafford. It’s been a […]

Lions win miraculous one in London

According to the Sports Geek, the Lions were heavy favorites against the Atlanta Falcons in London. Welp, the Lions trailed 21-0 at the half. With the injuries piling up (in addition to the slew of inactives, Nick Fairley left with a right knee injury), it felt like it was going to be an ugly one. But the […]

Michigan football embarrasses itself vs. Michigan State

Spartans stuck it to the Wolverines, 35-11. 35-11. MSU had a chance to run out the clock at the end of the game, too, but instead decided to run up the score. Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio didn’t hold back after the game [via Maize N Brew]: “As far as the score at the end, […]

Red Wings beat Pens in OT thriller

The Detroit Red Wings trailed the still-hated Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1 with under three minutes remaining in the third period on Thursday night, pulled the goalie a couple times and, just like that — with 39 seconds remaining on the clock — the Red Wings tied the score at 3-3. Here’s the game-tying goal (note the unbelievable […]

Welcome back, Pavel Datsyuk Pavel Datsyuk returned to the ice on Tuesday night and probably should’ve scored a goal, a goal that would’ve lifted the Red Wings to a regulation win. Instead, they get a point by surviving ’til overtime. Here’s what Winging It In Motown said about the game/play: Detroit was basically robbed out of two points […]

Jim Schwartz ’30 for 30′: Douche move

This is great. Jim Schwartz asked his defensive linemen DURING OTAs to carry him off the field if the Bills beat the Lions in the regular season and thus, he’s a douche.  What if I told you he’s also the kind of guy who turns off his porch light on Halloween?

Jay Feely would like the Lions to call him

Feely is a Michigan man who has made 83% of his NFL kicks. In his last four years with the Arizona Cardinals, before he got cut Aug. 2014, Feely hit 85% of his kicks, including 11-of-12 from 40-49 yards. Hey, that’s really good compared to

Max Scherzer hopes to be back with Tigers in 2015

It might just be media talk, for the fans, for the Tigers fans who are already grieving, but I hope he’s being sincere — if Max Scherzer re-signs, I’ll feel a lot better about the Tigers’ chances in 2015. It’ll cost them a pretty penny, though.
