Very strange that Michigan has an opening in the non-conference just one year away as schedules have been set recently as far as 7 years in advance.
September 8, 2018 still sits open.
Michigan was supposed to play Arkansas at home to open the season, but that series got cancelled in favor of opening the 2018 season at Notre Dame.
So 9/8/2018 will be Michigan's season opener. The opponent the following week will be SMU in the non-conference finale.
Here are the only teams left with an open date for 9/8/2018. Some interesting storylines....
Something has to be decided soon.
- Ohio University
- Western Michigan
|9/1||at Notre Dame|
|10/20||at Michigan State*|
|11/3||vs Penn State*|
|11/24||at Ohio State*|
|B1G Championship (Indianapolis, IN)^|
|College Football Playoff^|
|12/29||Cotton Bowl OR Orange Bowl|
|1/7||National Championship (Santa Clara)|

I thought this was a very good analysis of what we saw Saturday from the big guys on the line. It gave me hope anyway.
Some good film here. Evans showed some nice dash on a few carries early. The added weight should help him this fall. Pad level is his biggest area to work on at this point. The "Wild Chris" formation could be fun if deployed this fall.
Isaac had a couple of nice runs and he showed some decisive burst on the 28 yard TD run.
Higdon made efficient use of the carries he recieved and showed some nice cuts and hit paydirt twice. Broke into the secondary a few times which was a good showing of run blocking by the 2nd team Oline.
Walker had one of the nicer runs of the day with the TD run to the right but it was unfortunately called back. He is still getting the feel for the offense but has made some nice strides. That run was indicative of his potential.
Wilson looked like a scholarship player and thats great to see him make the most of the opportunities. Evans was held out of play after the first quarter and Wilson did himself justice with those carries as a result.
Not sure this is threadworthhy but 2018 QB Tyler Shough received an offer from Alabama per Wiltfong. Interesting QB board again with both DTR and him.
If you haven't had enough of the Spring game 2017, Adam Biggers has a bunch of post game interviews.
Don Brown & Tim Drevno, Rashan Gary, Devin Bush, Wilton Speight, Brandon Peters, Chris Evans.
With the exception of the OC videos they are all less than 5 minutes. No ground breaking info but nice to hear the players talk about their perfomance and progression.
Is it August yet?
