  1. Water affordability crisis looms

    Water and sewer service affordability, at both household and community levels, is a widespread problem across Michigan. A new study warns it may get worse if left unchecked.

  2. ‘This line of bullets missed me by 15 feet’

    Herb Elfring, BS ’50, is one of the few remaining survivors of Japan’s 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor. At age 99, the Army radar specialist remembers this ‘day that will live in infamy’ as though it happened yesterday.

  4. Student journalists redefine a rivalry

    Student-athletes are not the only ones who thrive on the high-level competition yielded by an annual rivalry. Aspiring journalists at U-M and OSU debuted their ‘Rivalry Edition’ three years ago as a newsroom fundraiser, ending on game day, Nov. 27.

  5. Fleming Building, RIP

    No, it wasn’t designed as a fortress against student radicals. But it could have been, based on architect Alden Dow’s ‘Michigan Modern’ aesthetic. The administration’s homely headquarters has gained few admirers since opening in 1968; now it’s staring down the wrecking ball.

  • Game MVP

    Senior defensive end and captain Aidan Hutchinson finished second in the 2021 balloting for the Heisman Memorial Trophy, which was presented Dec. 11 in New York. Hutchinson is the 23rd Wolverine to finish in the top 12 of the balloting. Though he didn’t take that particular trophy, the Academic All-American has picked up quite a few others, including the 2021 Lott IMPACT trophy.

  • League-leading 43rd

    The Big Ten title is the Wolverines’ league-leading 43rd and the first since the conference switched to the two-division alignment in 2011. It was a decisive victory to be sure with Michigan beating Iowa 42-3.

  • Runaway

    The Wolverines reeled off four touchdowns in five drives for 28 unanswered points. No wonder they ran away with the Big Ten title.

    No. 7 is on the loose
  • 13th sack and counting…

    The Michigan defense throttled the Hawkeyes throughout the game. They limited Iowa to a single field goal in three red-zone possessions, and allowed conversions on just five of 19 third downs throughout the game, and none in the fourth quarter.

  • 42 for 42

    The 42 points matched the jersey number 42 worn by Tate Myre, one of four victims of the tragic school shooting at nearby Oxford High School. The Wolverines wore multiple decals on their uniforms to honor the victims, and were joined on the field for the pregame coin toss by Myre’s family.

    The 39-point margin of victory was the Wolverines’ most lopsided win over the Hawkeyes since a 63-7 victory in 1971.

  • We came to play

    The win over Iowa brought Michigan its first Big Ten championship in 17 years, and the team spent a lot of time in the endzone right off the bat. They capitalized on back-to-back explosive touchdown plays in the first quarter to jump out to a 14-0 lead.

  • Coach of the year

    Coach Jim Harbaugh led Michigan to a 12-1 record this season. Harbaugh recently was named AP Coach of the Year, alongside U-M Coach Juwan Howard, who earned the same honor for basketball.
