Sort of like how things have been going on the field: a bunch of good things, one bad thing
Brian’s sick so Seth hosts, Craig guest hosts, and Johnny Wangler can finally visit us without fear of white tuxedoed hair fellas.
We can do this because people support us. You should support them! The show is presented by UGP & The Bo Store, and if it wasn’t for Rishi and Ryan we’d be all be very sad ex-SBNation employees with “real” jobs.
Our other sponsors are also key to all of this: HomeSure Lending, Peak Wealth Management, Ann Arbor Elder Law, the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, the University of Michigan Alumni Association, Michigan Law Grad, Human Element, and Lantana Hummus

A very uninteresting game. Michigan didn’t play their best game, but didn’t need to. Shea never pulled the ball. Did JH troll James Franklin? Tru Wilson had a good game. Craig thinks it’ll be a three-way RB battle next year with Evans, Wilson, and Charbonnet. Lots and lots of Down G. Didn’t run a lot of pistol in this game because the zone read wasn’t a legitimate threat. Shea had a terrific game. Higdon missed a few cuts. Pass protection in the UFR was 100% (!!!). Devin Gil had a really rough game, needs to stay in his lane. Gary had a terrific game.
2. Previewing Indiana
starts at 25:30
Craig’s numbers project a 28- or 29-point win for Michigan. He thinks their record indicates they may do better than that though. Seth rebuts by mentioning that Indiana has gotten a lot of turnover luck and is not a good team. However, Indiana is the forever ChaosTeam for as long as Seth has been a fan. The Hoosiers have zero pass rush whatsoever. Shea shouldn’t need to run this week against a depleted defense. Offense isn’t awful and Peyton Ramsey has a lot of receiving options.
3. Revenge Tour: Nova
starts at 1:45:44
Seth brags about his tweets and Craig asks people about the game at a drugstore. It was a complete defensive domination, but even Craig didn’t expect Brazdeikis to have the game that he did. The charge call early on set the tone for the game. Simpson might be the best defensive point guard Craig has ever seen. Craig thinks that Brooks and Livers are the best shooters on a team that can’t shoot. George Washington looks bad.
4. Gimmicky Top Five New Stadium Traditions
starts at 1:02:14
Seth and Craig discuss the fun new things we yell this year. Of course as soon as we finished up Wangler called so we’ll get him on the podcast soon.

So you don’t subscribe to the theory—put forth by exactly nobody until me just now—that Michigan was dogging it to match the Penn State score?
