At least 10 Michigan players and both pairs of coordinators talked with the media during the week of preparation for the Fiesta Bowl and all had something interesting to say. Each player and coordinator sat behind a microphone for more than 30 minutes giving media members plenty of time to ask all types of questions. Mike Morris complimented TCU quarterback Max Duggan. Defensive coordinator Jesse Minter talked about the importance of adjustments. JJ McCarthy shared that he listens to Bob Marley almost exclusively while preparing to play. Ronnie Bell spoke about his little brother Kendrick officially becoming a Wolverine last week. Olu Oluwatimi did a little bit of reflecting on his choice to become a Michigan Man. The list goes on and on.

Featured Musician: Grand Gesture The Video: For those of you asking, the guy in the upper-left is Alex Drain. You may not know him, but he's probably seen film on you, and has you cold. [After THE JUMP: What we said] --------------------- 1. Across the Crooked Blue Line, wsg Steve Lorenz: Offense starts at the top. QB Kendrick Bell: Uh, is he a quarterback? Who cares, he's Ronnie's brother. RB Cole Cabana: Put on weight, become Donovan Edwards. Doesn't mind blocking. RB Benjamin Hall: Low-rated, but thick and has some wiggle. WR Karmello English: Late pull out of SEC country, athletic, can play outside. WR Semaj Morgan: Comp was Sainristil before the switch. WR Fredrick Moore: Steve very high on him. Productive, great routes, skinny. Roundtree! TE Deakon Tonielli: 6'6" athlete, needs to gain some pounds before he's Loveland 2.0. TE Zack Marshall: Staff loves the measurements, athleticism. OT Evan Link: Staff thinks he's a 5-star. Important to get a true OT in this class. OG Amir Herring: The high floor. Center possibility? OG Nathan Efobi: The high ceiling. Long way to go. PK Adam Samaha: Steve is on a mission to give kickers some love. 2. Across the Crooked Blue Line, wsg Steve Lorenz: Defense starts at 34:40 DT Trey Pierce: Late riser, didn't rise high enough. Immediate Kris Jenkins. DT Brooks Bahr: Long (e.g. Godin) DT who can't stay blocked. SDE Enow Etta: Headliner, big for a DE, moves like one anyways. Mike Morris? WDE Aymeric Koumba: No floor, no ceiling. France, FRA. MLB Semaj Bridgeman: Scouting pass/fail for Helow. He+sites high, other schools not. MLB Hayden Moore: Tackling machine from Unscoutable, CO. M wanted bad. ATH Jason Hewlett: What is he? An athlete! A Viper! A receiver? EDGE Breeon Ishmail: What is he? An edge. To grow. S D'Juan Waller Jr.: What is he? Could be Jeremy Clark. Could be a FS. CB Cameron Calhoun CB Jyaire Hill: The Illinois battle. The Vibe. All the ability, teach him CB immediately. 3. Portal starts at 1:06:44 QB Jack Tuttle: We need depth, he increases his rolodex. Locker room guy. TE AJ Barner: Also a locker room guy. Tough to scout TE in a Walt Bell offense, but should Schoon. OG/OT LaDarius Henderson: The new Olu. Could have gone pro. Will be LT or Zinter. LFG! C Drake Nugent: Now we defend PFF: two QB pressures in hundreds and hundreds of pass sets. OT Myles Hinton: Needs a reset, was hurt last year, was not good in 2021. Would he take a redshirt? WDE Josaiah Stewart: More devilish than Danna. Huge deal for M's needs. Proverbial "dip." WLB Ernest Hausmann: Was #1 in the portal. M saw his best game, came around late in the season. Portal and Michigan: This is going well, probably because of a little luck this year in what was available, also because the market is bigger. This is not how MSU is doing it. 4. Wrap starts at 1:43:46 What happened? Coaching turnover/Harbaugh's NFL flirtation killed momentum, and then NIL, which is the difference between Michigan and Notre Dame this time. Future is brighter: M is getting their feet under them with NIL, staff is stabilized again. This was the Year of NIL, Michigan didn't play, and a lot of those who did set unreasonable expectations that are going to see these guys portaling.

General Vibes starts at 1:00 The story looked like it was going to be "Michigan lost this game because Blake Corum and Mike Morris were out and Michigan didn't have the recruiting depth to make up for it." And then Mike Sainristil completely denies a touchdown with a pass break-up. Ohio State said "make JJ beat us." And then he did. Michigan exposed Ohio State to their 3rd down issues. Ohio State's whole offseason was about saying "last year was a fluke." It wasn't. On 3rd and short, Ohio State is sawft. Michigan has always been behind the meta game vs Ohio State. For the first time in a long time, it feels like Michigan is ahead of Ohio State tactically. Michigan can simulate Ohio State's offense in practice, but can Ohio State simulate Michigan's smash mouth run game? The story of Ohio State last year was they had a bad defensive coordinator and Michigan was able to expose their flaws. This year... they still exposed the Ohio State's defense's flaws. [The rest of the writeup and the player after THE JUMP] 2. Offense vs Ohio State starts at 23:30 Ohio State comes in with a very aggressive defensive approach, so Michigan throws deep to Cornelius Johnson. That same play happened in the Penn State vs Ohio State game. Brian's takes are preserved. Michigan wasn't able to run their go-to offense, but once they hit the deep balls to Cornelius Johnson and Colston Loveland Ohio State had to drop their safeties. THEN Michigan could run their offense. What is a "catchable" ball? JJ had some great decision making, especially on some scrambles and on his touchdown run when Ohio State wasn't set. Olu is Brian's favorite Center, even more than senior Molk. Once again, just a little bit of QB run was able to confuse the defense. Cornelius Johnson's route running was frustrating for much of the year, all is forgiven after this game. They did a lot to set up that RB pass play to Loveland. Colston Loveland is ready now. 3. Defense vs Ohio State starts at 1:03:08 Alex's take on the Ohio State offense from a month ago was on point. Once Ohio State gets to 3rd and short, they are horrible. They don't have a consistent run game that can get 3-ish yards. You can't build a run game off of getting either 12 yards or no yards. There were a lot of plays where Michigan couldn't get to Stroud, but CJ Stroud didn't have anything. If CJ Stroud runs at all it might change Michigan's defensive approach but Stroud won't even scramble. The coverage in this game was incredible. Michigan finally gets turnover luck in The Game and it didn't even really matter. There was maybe one bust? Last year Sainristil caught the flea flicker from Cade, this year he went god mode on defense, so next year he'll be the kicker. Will Johnson has grown up. Ohio State had their heads down in the 4th quarter and Michigan knew "we are going to win." The headbutt was probably the end. McGregor had a great TFL to eventually force a punt. God bless Michael Barrett, he didn't have a huge role in this defense but he sticks it out and he had to learn a whole new role. His progress has been outstanding. There is probably some truth to the idea that these players are completely bought into the program. Michigan is now Stanford with more talent. Rod Moore is not boring but in a good way! 4. Hot Takes and Game Theory starts at 1:43:38 Takes hotter than Ryan Day's hot seat. Brian's hot takes voice has transcended. The biggest bummer from this game might be that if Blake Corum puts up Donovan Edwards' numbers he would win the Heisman. Ryan Day is a coward and a turtle. Several of Ohio State's punts were probably a "go for it" situation. He is a super conservative coach on 4th down decision making. Some of these decisions might be from the fact that Ohio State has never really needed to play in dogfights or from playing down. Stroud was begging to go for it on 4th down after the 1st and 35, they still punted. Ohio State had a fake punt that they could've gotten a huge gain from, but they botched it. MSU and OSU's hate for Michigan finally backfired. Ohio State seemed like they weren't expecting Michigan to fight back like they did. Michigan's clock management before halftime was probably the right move. That was a gutsy 4th and 1 call, all things considered. Would a punt have been better than Moody attempting a 57 yard field goal? Ryan Day turtle'd and Michigan gets it right, is he on the hot seat? If you play offensive line at Michigan, people will know your name. Michigan is recruiting heavily in Ohio now, what happens when you beat Ohio State? Do any of Michigan's coaches leave after this season? 5. Around the Big Ten With Jamie Mac starts at 2:43:24 Jamie gives us his personal takes on The Game. Purdue wins the Big Ten West, somehow. Indiana lost their quarterback on the opening drive. Purdue is a much better matchup for Michigan than Illinois. This year is similar to last year where Michigan dodged a hot Wisconsin team (and Illinois is the new Wisconsin). Northwestern goes 0-11 in North America and 1-0 in Europe. Why is Spencer Petras playing football?? Nebraska wins an improbably(?) game against Iowa. The sins of the Iowa offense caught up with them, Nebraska has a bad defense but the Hawkeyes put up less than 300 yards. Michigan State rushes for 25 yards and fails to gain bowl eligibility - they get rushing rutger'd! Michael Penix is... 5th in the Heisman trophy odds??? Michigan State might be in for another long year next year. Minnesota gets their 3rd win over Wisconsin in five years. Wisconsin gets Luke Fickell as their new head coach!

Offense vs Illinois starts at 1:00 Turns out Bret Bielema and Brian have something in common. Michigan had a close call but so did the rest of the top 5. Michigan was planning to have Blake Corum throughout this game and with him out in the second half nobody seemed to execute very well, especially the QB run game. JJ seems to have regressed since the Penn State game. Feels like Michigan tried to stick to their game plan with the wrong guys. The holding call on Zinter was a terrible call, the CJ catch at the end of the game wasn't a catch. A lot of officiating strangeness. Is this game that applicable for Ohio State? Their run defense wasn't this aggressive against even Northwestern. A lot of starters were warming up but didn't play, so how much of this game was keeping guys healthy for Ohio State? [The rest of the writeup and the player after THE JUMP] 2. Defense vs Illinois starts at 41:42 This was the first offensive line that was able to do anything all season to Michigan's defensive tackles. There can only be one Wisconsin and now it's Illinois. Mason Graham came to play in this game. This is a true freshman and Brian can't even. Mike Morris was missed in this game, the pre-season prediction about the defensive end depth being not great may have come true. They're going to have to blitz a lot against Ohio State - force CJ Stroud to make mistakes. Discussing the safety rotation and how it translates to Ohio State. 3. Hot Takes and Game Theory starts at 1:10:22 Takes hotter than a tie game in the 'Shoe in the 4th quarter. Let's talk about the decision making before the game winning field goal. Does the Lou Groza award winner really need an extra four yards? Field goal kicking discussions, the holding call, and punting. Iowa may actually win the West, in an affront to God. 4. Around the Big Ten With Jamie Mac starts at 1:34:52 Ohio State has been outgained in three of their last four games. Maryland... Penn State... There are multiple games in which Michigan out-performed Ohio State. SO YOU'RE TELLING ME THERE'S A CHANCE? Getting pressure on Stroud is still going to be the biggest issue for Michigan. 2022 Iowa. This game had the lowest over/under ever for an FBS game... and it was still under. MSU outgains Indiana 540 to 288 in a game where Indiana completes two passes... and Indiana wins? MSU only has one turnover. None of the math adds up. This is a vintage SPARTY, NOOO. The teams exchanged block field goals in the first overtime. Now Michigan State will need to beat Penn State to go to a bowl game which seems unlikely. Wisconsin vs Nebraska yielded an "uh" which sums it up nicely. Casey Thompson came back for Nebraska but their ground game was completely shut down. Northwestern Purdue is an ugly affair. Is Northwestern the best poor weather team? Penn State spanks Rutgers, the end. MUSIC: "I Am The Moon"--Tedeschi Trucks Band "Someday"-- Julia Jacklin (a Strokes Cover) "Oh Boy"-- Cam'ron “Across 110th Street”

Things discussed: Errors in the first half cropped up after Hart went down. IU's offense is about making you screw up, Michigan's plan was to try to handle it with their base. Officials were TERRIBLE. Worse on review than on first watch. IU totally selling out against Michigan's pistol run game. Incredible that Corum turned one of those into a TD. JJ had a great game—even the INT (put it on Bell's facemask vs a LB) and the "overthrow to Henning" was actually getting hit on the arm trying to go to Bell. Johnson drop was a great throw, twice JJ motioned Klatt's motion thing: red herring. Not a red herring: pistol = run. Penn State's not stupid; they're practicing play-action off Pistol. Is the pass rush real? I believe in Mike Morris. I believe in Eyabi Okie! Not so much the other guys. Penn State: worried about our LBs vs Singleton. PSU's OL not worrying us. Their secondary does. Chop Robinson is their biggest edge test so far. Cornerbacks are great—shout out to King out of Cass Tech and Joey Porter Jr. (sorry DJ) is the Big Ten's best cornerback.
Sam Webb and former Michigan Football Defensive Backs Coach, and Texas, Louisville and Oklahoma State Defensive Coordinator, Vance Bedford, break down the Michigan defense following the Wolverine's 31-10 win at Indiana.

Subscribe to the BWI Daily Edition on YouTube so you don't miss an episode of the show. T-Frank and Sayfie start with Wolverines, starting quarterback JJ McCarthy. What has Sayfie seen from him this season and how did the season start for the team at that position? They discuss McCarthy's ascendence, an offseason injury that changed his trajectory this year and his development as a passer. What sort of player will Penn State face on Saturday? While McCarthy has been very good at what he's been asked to do, can he take his game to another level against Penn State? Sayfie and T-Frank discuss the nature of the Wolverine's offense, it's strengths and weaknesses and where McCarthy needs to take the next step. They also discuss how Penn State's defense will present unique challenges that the team hasn't faced this year. Next, they discuss the offensive line for Michigan. T-Frank called them ‘average' earlier this week so Sayfie is here to defend the Michigan front-five's play this year. They talk about that unit's play through the Big Ten schedule so far and how injuries have affected the group this season. After spending an extensive amount of time on the offense, they shift to the Michigan defense and what the Penn State offense will see on Saturday. They start up front with Mazi Smith and Mike Morris, the defensive tackle and edge rusher that lead the unit. How important are they and how well does Michigan use that duo? Sayfie and T-Frank discuss how the Wolverines deploy the defensive line and which players fans need to be aware of on Saturday.

Featured Musician: Orochen Video is Here: [After THE JUMP: What's to be said] --------------------- 1. Indiana Preview starts at the top Where'd everybody go? Alex likes one linebacker, thinks their formerly great corner Tiawan Mullen has lost it and the other CB might be hurt. They get interesting blitzes but need a true freshman who's 6'5/220 to get to the QB. Tight end city them? Hit them deep? Both? Both. On offense they're an every kind of screen team, but bad at it. 2. Hockey Preview wsg David Nasternak starts at 23:10 Lindenwood? We know their coach used to play for the Wings. Don't care because let's get into the defense, starting with Luke Hughes, Hobey Baker favorite barring weirdness from the voters. Edwards is a guy we're looking to see a big step up from. Nazar might be out awhile so we'll get to see them throw the 4th through 9th forward spots in a blender and put together a good checking line around Moyle. Love the top line of Samo with Fantilli and Duke. Poor ND got their best two recruits stolen by Michigan and Minnesota. 3. Iowa After Review: Defense starts at 50:53 Nothing to learn from the secondary except I have a farfetched thought about Sainristil. Mike Morris has completed his development into Chris Wormley: set up his pass rushes with technique. Eyabi Okie is a better player than we realized, even after going back and watching his film from FBS (that's for the guy saying we didn't watch enough film—how dare you!). Linebacker is the one real issue—don't get why Colson was spot-dropping, but Barrett gave us what he could and shouldn't have to face fullbacks again for awhile. Mullings take from last week seemed to be on point. 4. Iowa After Review start at 1:06:58 This time it's Brian who has to tell us how they did against the other team's real side. Except Iowa didn't have the horses and backed off, so the OL just got a lot of +0.5s for doing their jobs. Gotta use your QB's legs if that's in the offense, or just do something that doesn't. LOVED the first TD playcall because Iowa is inside the 20 and that's where they get aggressive—perfect call in that situation. Only tiny nits for McCarthy's McNamara-esque game. About the Featured Musician Swedish band Orochen (Bandcamp, Spotify) has an Ann Arborish "post-" take on Swedish metal. They're hit and miss for me—heavy metal isn't my thing—but they make music with weight that brings in all kinds of other genres. Like what if Sigur Ros got dipped in death metal—what would that be? They came up as an band similar to Ann Arbor of my time's Oblivion, and yeah, if Oblivion had been allowed to grow up this is what they might have become too.

Mazi Smith was named the number one freak in the country by Bruce Feldman (in a good way). Is Mazi Smith finally happening this year? It might finally be happening this year, but he's definitely the biggest X-factor on the defense. Former MGoBlog Sleeper of the Year, Kris Jenkins, looks to be rounded into a Ryan Glasgow type. The depth takes a bit of a drop after these two. Consensus seems to be that Jim Harbaugh's "gift from the football gods" comment was referring to Kenneth Grant. Brian wants Alex to get older. George Rooks looks encouraging down the road. Jim Harbaugh says the defensive ends won't see much drop-off and might even be just as good - worst offseason lie we've ever heard? We feel good about Mike Morris, who should be a B+/A- player. After that, ehhh. Taylor Upshaw might be ok, Braiden McGregor hasn't been talked about much in camp. TJ Guy is a guy. Derrick Moore could be great but is a true freshman. Julius Welschof could be an X-factor! Brian wants a weakside end that eats peoples' souls and that probably doesn't exist this year. [The rest of the writeup and the player after THE JUMP] --------------------- 2. Hot Takes and Linebackers starts at 31:20 Takes hotter than whatever is going on in the capillaries in Brian's face from having to record all the hot takes segments at once. Linebackers are in a similar boat as defensive tackle - two guys coming on that you feel good about and then a pretty stiff drop-off. Junior Colson and Nikhai Hill-Green's development this season will be crucial for this defense, Josh Ross isn't around to solve your problems anymore. Junior Colson runs fast, sometimes in the right direction. Next man up is Michael Barrett, who is not an inside linebacker. Maybe they give Jaydon Hood a chance? The freshmen probably won't contribute much this year. Maybe they Ravens it and run one linebacker- wait they did that against Michigan State, never mind. 3. Secondary starts at 54:21 Last year's secondary intro was "oh god oh no" (and it ended up being fine), this year feels much better! DJ Turner is the 4th Michigan player to make Feldman's Freaks list and was on a 3rd team All American list. Gemon Green has never performed at the highest level but has shown flashes. He's a decent to good Big Ten corner but the ball always goes through his hands, this is a good floor at cornerback. Enter Will Johnson: a true freshman who will absolutely see the field. Moving a starter from receiver to cornerback usually is a bad sign, but I think we feel... fine? About Mike Sainristil? He played offense and defense in high school and has the athleticism for the position so he might be decent in the new role. Those are probably the four corners that will get significant snaps, we probably won't see much of Jaylen Perry. At safety, are we sure Brad Hawkins doesn't have another year of eligibility? RJ Moten and Rod Moore will likely be the starters. They held their own in the snaps they played last season, including against Ohio State. The rest of the depth chart looks ok if they need to step up. There's been positive chatter about Quinten Johnson? Seth is high on Damani Dent. 4. Special Teams and Defense in Summary starts at 1:21:06 Special Teams: same as last year, the end. Jake Moody, Brad Robbins, AJ Henning, and Blake Corum are back. Also Ronnie Bell is back to return punts (/TweekACK). Shout outs to Jay Harbaugh for being the best special teams coach in the country and Cornelius Johnson for blocking two punts. Best special teams unit in the country? What would Nebraska's record be last year if they had Michigan's special teams? Overall defense feels rickety, there are maybe four or five spots that having to rely on backups would be bad. If you were starting a defense from scratch, starting with two good defensive tackles and good cornerbacks is a good start. Expectation for the defense is around top 20-30.

Ian Rogers of Napa and Jarrod Copeland of Vallejo were arrested and charged with plotting to blow up the Democrats Sacramento headquarters in 2021. Investigators seized 49 guns and several pipe bombs from Rogers and more guns from Copeland. Prosecutors alleged that the two were specifically motivated to violence by President Donald Trump's election loss, the lie that the election was stolen, and the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. They belonged to a radical right wing ideology called the Three Percenters, which was founded in 2008 by militia leader Mike Vanderboegh in reaction to the election of President Barack Obama. The loosely-affiliated movement has many different groups under different names. Rogers and Copeland belonged to the Three Percent United Patriots or 3UP, a national group founded by Mike Morris in Colorado that organized and recruited on Facebook and conducted rogue border patrols in Arizona. Prior to his arrest, Rogers had numerous contacts with law enforcement, including a domestic violence arrest he was not prosecuted for. Some Solano County Sheriff's deputies have displayed support for the Three Percenter movement online, including Daniel “Cully” Pratt, the brother of actor Chris Pratt, Sgt. Roy Stockton, also a Vacaville city councilmember, and Deputy Dale Matsuoka, the department's homeless outreach coordinator. Sheriff Tom Ferrara said that before Jan. 6, he had never heard of Three Percenters. Guests: Shane Bauer, a reporter who went undercover with 3UP in 2016 for Mother Jones, and Kurt Braddock, a fellow in the Polarization and Extremism Research and Innovation Lab at American University.
Michigan football has been getting after it for about a week now as they prepare for the season opener against Colorado State. Jim Harbaugh and his assistants have been a little more forthcoming with information compared to past years, which has allowed us to really piece together a starting offense and defense. Co-offensive coordinators Sherrone Moore and Matt Weiss gave some good insight into their positions groups, and we also got a chance to speak with Mike Morris, Luke Schoonmaker and Ryan Hayes. Even though we haven't spoke to him since Big Ten Media Days, Mazi Smith has been a popular player. Morris referenced him and he's been dubbed as the "freakiest" player in the country by Bruce Feldman. Even though he hasn't recorded a sack while at Michigan, Smith seems poised for a monstrous year for various reason. We discuss those and many other things on this episode of The Wolverine Digest Podcast.
It doesn't seem possible, but Mike Morris is entering his senior season at Michigan already. The big, 6-6, 280-pounder has played some but hasn't been the guy yet, but that could all change in 2022. Some of what he said makes you think he's really ready to take a massive leap in year four. Plus, he sheds some light on the 2-4 season, last year's season and expectations for 2022. Additionally, we discuss Michigan baseball and Erik Bakich, along with some developments on the hardwood, football recruiting trail and the upcoming weekend in Traverse City, which should be a glorious time for everyone involved.

As the period of the Old Testament drew to a close, God again began to speak to His people; sometimes words of encouragement and comfort, often words of warning and judgment. These typically short prophetic books were addressed to the people of both Israel and Judah, and written by a group of twelve men known to us today as the minor prophets. But the messages God brought to His people through them were certainly not minor, but instead remain some of the most important and timely books in the Scriptures, and they bring to today's Church an outsized message of conviction, rebuke, and hope in the midst of adversity. Join us as we explore together the messages of The Twelve.For more information check out Verse by Verse Fellowship

Things discussed: Spring Game standouts: We like what we saw on the DL: Benny and Rooks are coming on, Jenkins impressed, can see how the Mike Morris/(read: Chris Wormley) style of pass rush is going to happen. Sainristil at nickel is more of a Blake Countess than a Dax Hill, but you can certainly make that work. They're going to be more subby than previous teams. Mullings would be the 3rd RB today if they weren't so desperate for a 3rd LB. MBB in the break: What if they all come back? Michigan has enough guys who can take a step forward that they can be favorites to win the Big Ten, but that's not a top-10 team. Portal needs to get them a wing who can defend pullups and shoot. Hockeytalk: Denver is a Red Berenson team: super skilled, super fast, so small that Ethan Edwards's brother is a 60th percentile-sized defender on that team. They're saying it's going to be 9-8 because they think their goalie is going to give up 9 goals. Key is playing sound defensively because Denver loves to stretch the puck up ice. WBB: hitting the in-conference transfer portal for a Naz replacement and a PG?
Serena and Matt discuss the various good and bad tidbits from Michigan spring ball, rant about "top 25 coaches" lists, and briefly react to Michigan basketball's NCAA tournament draw and hockey's takedown of Notre Dame (finally) in the Big Ten tourney.We play a game of good news, bad news from Harbaugh's first media availability of this spring session:Interpreting coach speak is a difficult endeavor Bad news is largely limited to injuries JJ out -- hard to see him overtaking Cade during the offseason under the circumstances Rod Moore out -- this is less impactful because he: 1) doesn't have an experienced starter he needs to win the job from; and 2) he probably is the most experienced guy in that role, but nonetheless, missed time when he could really grow into the role kind of sucks Is no news good news or bad news on the linebackers? Good News The praise of Mazi Smith is really encouraging, especially with his size and our need to replace a whole bunch on the DL Harbaugh made some pretty emphatic comments about Mike Morris, we're happy to hear it but still skeptical; McGregor also appears to be getting work in at one of the DE slots Trente Jones is currently the leader at RT; we both think this is an encouraging sign. He was a pretty solid player to begin with, but if he's seizing the job maybe that means he's taken a step from solid to good, and given that his spot is the only vacancy on the OL, that's good news Freshman WRs are a "freak show" What does it mean that Harbaugh is so emphatic with his words? "Freak show" and "scary good" are certainly departures from how tight-lipped he has been in the past. Reporters are a little mean to Harbaugh about having to give up ever winning a Super Bowl Matt goes on a soap box about the stupidity of coaching "rankings" Michigan Basketball is going dancing! Avoid the play-in game and will face Colorado State. Colorado State only has one player taller than 6'8. Could be the Hunter Dickinson show.Michigan Hockey FINALLY knocks off ND This team has win-it-all potential One win away from a Big Ten Banner going into College Hockey's Selection Sunday
