Article from MLive on Ian Bunting losing his father last winter. I wasn't aware, but having lost my own father at 19 too I really feel for Bunting. This gives me an extra reason to root for him in addition to destroying DBs. http://www.mlive.com/wolverines/index.ssf/2015/09/ian_bunting.html#inca…

MGoUser Banister asked (on 9/13) for the pregame video from Saturday's game.  It’s posted on Maize and Blue Nation and found here:

Michigan's official pregame hype video, which debuted on the video boards last week before the Oregon State, is narrated by Michigan’s own James Earl Jones. 

Enjoy!

SIAP – this is a good reason for a double post if my search efforts are poor.

Mlive Article on Harbaugh Playcalling

Mlive Article on Harbaugh Playcalling

Submitted by counter trey on September 16th, 2015 at 5:09 PM

Please be gentle, first post here. Just saw this article on Mlive on how Harbaugh and all offensive assitants have a "say" in the playcalling. Why it's interesting is this is pretty different from the norm, usually the OC calls the plays with the Head Coach's input or veto power anyway.

Wayne Lyons?

Wayne Lyons?

Submitted by CincyBlue on September 16th, 2015 at 3:35 PM

After reading Brian's Defense UFR on his concern for the 2nd CB spot, got me thinking about Wayne Lyons. 

Does anyone have any inside info on why he isn't playing?  

On the depth chart he is listed as a safety, on the roster as a CB.

I noticed a lack of good football schedule wallpapers for mobile devices, so I created a few of my own. If anyone else has good mobile device wallpapers to share, that would be awesome! You can view and download full-res versions from flickr here: https://www.flickr.com/gp/noahkaczor/G4L7E7

UNLV Quarterback Situation: Blake Decker might play Saturday vs. Michigan?

UNLV Quarterback Situation: Blake Decker might play Saturday vs. Michigan?

Looks like UNLV starting QB Blake Decker did not injure his hamstring afterall vs. UCLA last week, but rather another muscle in his hip/groin area called obturator internus.

Story Link: http://www.reviewjournal.com/sports/unlv-rebels/football/rebels-qb-deck…

Not a doctor. Not sure how painful that is, but it is apparently less serious in terms of recovery time and painful nagging injury that needs rest.

Any med students or doctors want to chime in on a obturator internus strain/pull injury?

It looks to me like it would still hurt like a mother, and feel more like a groin pull injury.

I think sophomore Kurt Palandech is the likely starter however.  Sanchez is already quoted as not planning to burn the redshirt of freshman Dalton Sneed.

 

Eagles place center David Molk on IR

The Eagles placed center David Molk on injured reserve with a torn right biceps. Molk played five special teams snaps in Monday's 26-24 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

 

Somewhat sad to see.  Although Jason Kelce, the Eagles starting center, is completely entrenched and should receive Pro-Bowl/All-Pro attention, Molk has quietly established himself as a reliable, long-term backup.  I hope this injury does not jeopardize Molk's ability to maintain a roster spot going forward.  Last year, in briefly filling in for Kelce (sports hernia), Molk flashed the skills we grew to love at Michigan.

 

Michigan Opens -34 vs UNLV

UM opens up -34 in Vegas. 

My initial reaction is to pass. Been on the right side for weeks 1 and 2, but this will be a no play for me. UNLV QB injured last week, but UM does not play the type of offense that makes you comfortable laying 5 TDs. Gun to my head I would take the points, but I will pass. 

Other lines:

Ohio State -34 vs Northern Illinois

LSU -7 vs Auburn

Miami -3 vs Nebraska 

GT -2 vs ND

Michigan State -27 vs Air Force
