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.
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.
Michigan Football seems to be on track to return to its former glory, and the 2016 class looks to add to this legacy. From offensive weapons to defensive titans, this class has it all–including a potential for growth amongst the few quarterbacks signed.
Even further, the event’s “spiritual” significance has long worn thin. Competitions between East and West or National and American leagues used to be fierce, as each conference had its own identity and relished bragging rights accompanied by a win in an All-Star matchup.
Let’s face it fellow college football fans—since its inaugural season last year, the college football playoff has undermined and stolen the postseason thrill from the traditional BCS format. Unless it is your team or school, nobody pays attention to the teams included in BCS bowl games anymore. With the new kid in town, sports fans across America have made the transition to a more thrilling, nerve racking college football playoff format.
Our student section doesn’t adequately represent the national standing and prestige our program deserves. Assembly Hall. Krzyzewskiville. The “Izzone”. All three of these locales inspire images of tradition and success within the realm of college basketball — although the Izzone has experienced attrition of morale following recent upset losses to unranked Wisconsin and Nebraska.

Following what can only be described as an explosion of cult-like insanity and fandom surrounding his arrival in Ann Arbor earlier this year, the former QB did surprisingly well in bringing Michigan Football back to some semblance of its former glory. In spite […]
Fortunately, the NFL hasn’t yet created a rule defining acceptable hairstyles. Although, knowing the league, I’m sure they’ll have someone on that shortly.
Catholic or not, spiritual or not, the idea that spirituality and sports don’t have to be in constant competition with each other is one we should embrace. Who knows, maybe Luke Scott wasn’t that far off when he said, “I believe God is a sports fan.”
To open a season of high expectations, Michigan pummeled Toronto in an exhibition contest at Yost Ice Arena by a score of eight to one–a final result surprising no one. The Wolverines are coming off a relatively underwhelming 2014 season, finishing 20th in the USCHO.com poll and missing an automatic berth to the NCAA playoff […]
Attention, students! Are you looking for a quiet place to study? Go to Comerica Park during a game—nobody will be there to bother you! Attendance at the stadium has become nonexistent because the Detroit Tigers currently are in dead last. This means no playoff baseball in the Motor City this fall, which for Detroiters is […]
