There is no question about it, Michigan’s defense is absolutely dominant. They proved that again on Saturday when they completely shut down the Penn State offense on way to a 42-7 win at the Big House.
The defense has talent all over the place but a lot of the credit has to go to the Wolverines defensive coordinator, Don Brown.
Brown has the Wolverines defensive unit playing fast and playing aggressive and because of that, Michigan has a real shot at winning the Big Ten and advancing to the College Football Playoff.
Following Saturday’s stomping of Penn State, Wolverines’ head coach Jim Harbaugh talked about Brown and even started singing his love for him.

With or without Golden Tate, the 2018 Detroit Lions WERE NEVER winning the NFC North
As you know by now, Golden Tate is no longer a member of the Detroit Lions.
Earlier in the week, news broke that the Lions had traded their most consistent receiver over the past 4+ seasons to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third-round draft pick.
The move is one that has come under much scrutiny, especially from some local media members who cover the Lions for a living. Some have said the trade is a sign of the Lions front office waving the proverbial “white flag” on the season, while others have said the move would send a bad message to the rest of the players in the locker room and potentially cause them to “give up” on the season. I am not making his stuff up.
Anyone who believes either of those things is 100% clueless about NFL football and how it works. First of all, trading Tate had absolutely nothing to do with waving a white flag on the 2018 regular season. Though Tate has been the definition of consistency for the Lions since coming to the Motor City, he is not a player and will never be a player who puts the team over-the-top in terms of contending for a Super Bowl. The Lions offense has plenty of weapons and Tate, because of his age and contract situation moving forward, became expendable.
