Redshirt sophomore Austin Davis grew up in one-stoplight Onsted before coming to play basketball for Michigan in Ann Arbor.

The village of Onsted does not have a lot.

But it does have a stoplight, and John Beilein knows all about it.

Freshman Mason Parris took down Ohio State's Chase Singletary on Friday, helping Michigan to beat the second-ranked Buckeyes.

“Well, I obviously want to kill them every time. I want to win every single match, as a team. I want to blow them out and sweep them.”

I was once told you should never start a story with a quote, but I’m pretty sure I can’t convey the Michigan wrestling team’s feelings for Ohio State better than those words from Mason Parris.

The Michigan women's gymnastics team has long surpassed the men's team in prominence.

Especially after the University’s announcement that the athletic department ended its contract with Faehn on Sunday night, barely four days after her hire, all I could think about were scandalous situations that seemed to mar a history of success.

Right now, the conversation seems to be based around whether hiring Faehn was right or wrong — for me, that discussion seems to miss a broader point.

Sophomore wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones caught his eighth touchdown pass of the season on Saturday.

Combined, Michigan’s offense managed just 15 points against a 10th-ranked team in a Saturday bowl game in Atlanta, despite having the talent — or, at the very least, potential — to do otherwise.

Junior quarterback Shea Patterson showed leadership in returning for his senior season

This is not where Shea Patterson expected him and his team to be. The junior quarterback is happy he gets to play football longer than the majority of other teams, sure, but Atlanta is not where he thought he’d be playing.

The Michigan men's basketball team's last two home games have been sellouts.

Seventy dollars. That’s what some students paid to watch the men’s basketball team play Purdue on Saturday night.

Sophomore wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones leads Michigan's receivers with 477 yards.

Stan Fay helped Michigan to back-to-back national championships.

The era of football, the rulebook, the two teams playing — none of that matters. An average of 1.6 points per game is not a good stat.

And yet, that’s all the teams that faced Michigan’s defense in 1932 averaged. Under coach Harry Kipke and assistant Clifford Keen, the Wolverines established a stalwart defense that steamrolled six different teams for shutouts and enabled their offense to outscore opponents, 123-12, through the season.

The Chicago football team ended Michigan's "point-a-minute" undefeated streak in 1905.

In Fielding Yost’s first year as head coach of the Michigan football team, he did a few things — went undefeated with a 11-0 record, outscored his opponents, 550-0, and turned a fifth-place team around to become Rose Bowl and national champions for the first time ever.

Just to name a few.

The 1901 season for the Wolverines demonstrated a massive shift in success. That year, Yost spurred an intensity in the offense that equipped the Wolverines with the ability to remain undefeated for four seasons, notching 40 straight wins for four national titles in a row.
