2016 was an incredible year for Michigan football, even though we did not reach the end results we had all hoped for–a victory in Columbus, a Big Ten championship, and, most importantly, a College Football Playoff bid. But while many experts, including Colin Cowherd and Skip Bayless, agree that Michigan remains one of the best […]
An Ode to Legacy
At the Review, we are dedicated to the proud sporting legacy that is ours in Ann Arbor. Our writers aim to paint profiles of athletes and coaches, to offer us a glimpse at the heart of the champion.
For many, 2016 was simply a year to forget. Riddled with the passing of iconic celebrities, continued tensions in the Middle East, and, of course, the election of business magnate and always-controversial Donald Trump, this year has done more to dishearten and divide the American public since “Dressgate”.

What then is the future, the road ahead, for Michigan Basketball? Simply put, there is work to be done, but we have the tools to succeed. Watching the team at both its best and worse throughout the year, I saw the potential next year’s team will have. And it all starts with the fundamentals.
