With special guest Steve Lorenz of 247Sports.
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
1. Penn State After UFR
starts at 1:00
Michigan should’ve put this game away earlier. Offense feels much more dynamic and unpredictable. Joe Moorhead being gone helped. What happens next year after the Wile E. Coyote year? Shea Patterson had his best game on the ground of his season. Very few missed reads. McKeon has a lot of improvement to make in blocking but he has a lot on his plate. An RPO appeared! All hail Warinner and Don Brown. Gary is back, same guy as before.
2. Across the Crooked Blue Line w/ Steve Lorenz
starts at 28:52
We troubleshoot live on air until Steve Lorenz officially comes through. We chat about 2019 and 2020 Michigan recruiting. Michigan is in line to sign a monster Top 5 class. Harrison looks good if parents are in. M’s coaches are killing it on the recruiting trail. Coaches feel confident in Eric Gray but we’re hoping he gets up here. DeLoach a guy you can get when you win. High-star wide receivers are hard to come by—Ford is probably staying out West. Can scouting might make that up?
3. Previewing Rutgers
starts at 1:04:03
Marvel is mentioned at the start. Rutgers is incredibly bad, 126th in S&P+. They have a pretty good RB who is reminiscent of small Chris Evans. Rutgers TE is the only guy on their team with a YPC over 10 and he’s out for this game. Offense is 130th, defense is actually a little better. Pass defense stats are not appalling but run defense is complete garbage. Aussie punter and a kicker who isn’t bad. Seth decided to FFFF an entire Rutgers game and tweeted at their LB coach.
4. Previewing Rutgers
starts at 1:20:15
Hockey has had an alarming start to the year. Defense is having a messy start despite returning a lot of veterans. Boka off to a rocky start in particular and goaltending has not helped out. This is a top-heavy forward group and they don’t really have a checking line, but there’s still no excuse for how bad the defense has been. Taking a lot of penalties. In basketball, wasn’t a great beginning but defense was suffocating as expected. Teske looked like an impact defender..

I think we’ll see more Peter Bush than Devin Bush
