It was a good weekend for the Michigan hockey team, as the Wolverines pulled off a sweep of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, which in turn, earned the Wolverines home ice in the Big Ten tournament.

After defeating the Irish 4-0 on Friday night, Michigan hockey followed it up with a 2-1 win on Saturday which improved their record to 17-12-3 overall and 10-10-2 in Big Ten play.

The night was also made more eventful as Michigan football head coach Sherrone Moore was in attendance to drop the puck. Winning seems to follow Moore wherever he goes and maybe the biggest win for Moore recently was the fact that Michigan football lost just one two-deep contributor to the transfer portal following Jim Harbaugh's departure. That's all Sherrone.

Michigan will travel to Minnesota, the third-place team in the Big Ten next weekend and the Wolverines could become the No. 3 seed in the Big Ten tournament, but at worst, they'll be No. 4 and will host Notre Dame.

PFF writer claims Ohio State are 'offseason champs'

Ohio State fans are loving the offseason and who can blame them? Michigan football has destroyed their last three seasons so why not celebrate something as mythical as an offseason championship?

One PFF writer dubbed the Buckeyes as the "offseason champs" for all the moves they made such as adding Caleb Downs, Quinshon Judkins, and Julian Sayin, while also getting several key veterans back, outside of Marvin Harrison Jr.

Ohio State has a ton of talent. The problem is that according to the recruiting rankings, Ohio State had much more talent than the Michigan Wolverines the past three seasons and still lost to Michigan football three times by an average of nearly 14 points.

Buckeye fans are putting all their hopes in the Michigan Wolverines taking a huge step back under Moore, along with the NCAA sanctions Ohio State fans swear will come.

But none of that is happening. Michigan football isn't going anywhere under Sherrone Moore, the NCAA isn't dropping the hammer, and being offseason champ means nothing unless Ohio State beats Michigan in Columbus in November.

And while Buckeye fans can celebrate, as Moore said, "we'll settle that in November."
