Great news about Stonum's status. Fingers crossed for Hemingway. The team will need all of its offensive weapons on Saturday.
Note: Autullo is the Toledo Blade Michigan football beat writer.
Some not so good injury news. Heard from a very reliable source (I cringed just writing that) that Will Hagerup may be held out for an undisclosed injury. From what I saw in spring ball this could be very very troublesome. No FGs and no punts... Only TD and 4th down conversions... we have to move the ball.
Forcier should punt then.
Cosigned. If they've known about this long enough, i'm hoping they've installed a crazy 4th down package with Tate as Punter and he has a punt/fake option each time with multiple fake calls available based on their punt return team's alignment.
Everyone has already forgotten Denard's perfect 30-yard pooch punt inside the 5 against Notre Dame?
The undisclosed reason is we will need to go for it on every 4th down to have a shot. Leave the punter in AA. They will score when we punt anyway. All a punt will do is improve thier offensive stats.
Kind of like "burn the ships" .... I like it.
unless it occurred after the report was drafted?
I don't know, not feeling too worried about missing our totally awesome punter this week
Should go for it every fourth down anyway...what to do they have to lose?
Ok no punting or field goal kicking then.... it looks like it's TD or bust on Saturday. Sounds good to me.
Burn the boats!
(upside down !)Queme los barcos!

My rule of thumb is we never punt outside our own 40...no FG attempts...onside kick on most if not all opportunities
Ya, fielding yost, eh?
We seem to enjoy the pooch punt anyway. Just make sure Tate takes them. DRob can't kick.
a really nice guy who did a ton and tried with all his heart when the team switched him around on the line. i think he epitomizes everything that means something during these past three years... he did his damndest when called upon and was All In.
In my opinion... at any point ...in any game this year we've been in 4 down territory anyways.
Who says we'll be in a punting situation anyway?
who says this unidentified source is correct? We have a lot of info come from "reliable" sources that were false. Just like the time someone posted that Fitz was arrested.
No drops plus no penalties = no 4th downs.
are all vying for the rights to wear the number 1 jersey season. Hoping for a great game from all three.
Im surprised to see Hemingway listed as questionable. I do not recall seeing a play where was injured. Maybe it was a practice injury. Anyways, glad to see the other guys are going to be able to play.
Chris Hagerup is listed as questionable (concussion) on the Indiana injury report. Wonder if that's where the Will rumor comes from.
