Like most of you that were in the office July 5th and 6th, I spent about 70% of my time at work reading the digital HTTV that came via email. So, what did you think? Any sections surprise you? Any predictions floor you from the round table? Any opponent previews give you a different thought about how that game will go?

It boggles my mind that the last great UM Running Back verbaled to Michigan in 2003. Since then, not one back has truly stood out. Sure, you can point to Denard but he was the QB who also ran. Since Hart left, Michigan has not had one dominant running back. And that is just sad on so many level. https://twitter.com/UMGoBlog/status/1015943586259480581

I'm starting to dabble in sports analytics as a new hobby. I'm working on some NBA player analysis for an upcoming fantasy basketball season, but Michigan football is my first love, so I'm trying to tease out some potential projects for this fall. Anything you all can think of that you'd want to tease out? Or any interesting public datasets that you know of that I could analyze? For instance I was thinking about combing through old UFRs.
