Speight has not been tested. Next weekend he will be. Wisconsin has a good DO, very good LBs and a decent secondary. Also, UM's OL makes or breaks it next weekend.

He got dinged up last weekend.
He is not going to be 100% this Saturday.

Unfortunately, Like Rudock, Speight will be lucky to finish all 12 games healthy unless the veteran OL starts to finally get it.

Michigan has been down CB Lewis, DE Charlton and DT Mone on defense. Get some of these stars back and the tone of games played starts to change.
The disappointment in the 2016 Michigan OL though is justified.
Phil Steele is wrong about a great many things, not just Oklahoma football. But the man can definitely count: https://www.philsteele.com/Blogs/2016/JUNE16/DBJune13.html
In 2016 Michigan has the most career starts of any BIG10 offensive line (105). The next closest is Penn State's pathetic unit with 91 starts. Typically that's fantastic news, but we seem to forget that in even 2015 Michigan (10-3) finished 9th in the Big10 in rushing (153 yds/game). How much better could they really get in rushing?
The worst thing is to watch a guy like Ed Warrinner take one the least experienced OL's in the country (9 career starts) and watch them shred all opposition into ribbons, leading the league in rushing yards by a significant margin after just 3 games.
I don't know.
Against teams like UCF and Colorado, one would have expected Michigan's experience OL to have blasted them all off the ball repeatedly. Didn't happen. And now mental errors that should have been eliminated last year are somehow popping up against substandard competition. That's bad.
I think WYSIWYG on this UM OL. It's the best it's going to be. There are no better options, which says to me that any injuries to the OL would be a major problem.
I do think Michigan will play a lot better defensively with the return of the injured players, which should lighten the load for the offense.
|2 days 13 hours ago||Opportunity for UM OL to assert themselves||
and make a statement.
Penn State is going to load the box with 8+ just as UCF and Colorado did and force Michigan to throw against their secondary.
Michigan needs a big day from the OL and RBs Smith, Evans and Isaac.
Hopefully they run the ball with some authority this time.
|2 days 13 hours ago||The Stanfordization seems to be taking a backseat||
Just when you say the OL needs tons of work, especially on blitz pickups on passing downs, I think the Penn State game is going to have to reveal a return to basics for Drevno and Harbaugh, namely:
Running the goddamned football!
Three games in, Michigan is a middling BIG10 rushing team right now, which in terms of Stanfordization, Noooooooo!
Chris Evans and DeVeon Smith need to be given the football a lot more, IMO.
|2 days 14 hours ago||WTH?||
Have you noticed Chip Kelly's new employers?
It's Jed York and Trent Baalke.
Maybe not a circus, but definitely the ambiguously dumb duo.
I'd choose working for Lynn "Hey, I'm down on the sideline you guys!" Swann any day versus those two dolts.
|3 days 13 hours ago||Good ole "Take 'em Downtown!" Brown||
Michigan has a fine defensive coordinator in that man.

|4 days 14 hours ago||Well, the good news is Lynn Swann is in charge||
as the Athletic Director and he will soon put everything in Troy back to rights.
Hmph, surprised you guys didn't know that.
|4 days 14 hours ago||Because Iowa was not ranked No. 5||
in the nation.
Also, Iowa did not have 4 heisman trophy candidates and an outland trophy candidate on the roster.
QB Chad Henne - 5 star quarterback, senior, 4 year starter
TB Mike Hart
OT Jake Long
WR Mario Manningham
WR Adrian Arrington
Just about the only thing similar between 2016 Iowa and 2007 Michigan is the offensive coordinators:
Mike Debord vs. Greg Davis.
In a matchup, neither would win. We would all just lose.
|4 days 18 hours ago||Michigan better be able plow through Penn State on the ground||
Of all of the teams on the BIG10 slate this year for Michigan, Penn State has one of the worst rushing defenses right now:
