Initial thoughts:

  • Cuilla starts in place of Mitchell.
  • Zirbel moved to guard? He was reportedly struggling at tackle.
  • Three wide receivers get starting nods; fullbacks can get screwed.
  • Butler not on the three-deep yet.
  • Despite many statements about Charles Stewart making a serious push no "or" on the free safety depth chart.
  • Surprising "or" at right tackle.
  • We have no linebacker depth. Carr says two-star Marell Evans will play this fall. Yikes.
  • Sears over Mathews is good at PR; I'm still sketchy about Minor returning kicks. Brown should be back soon, though, and he'll probably win the job.
  • Oh, and: no Slocum, probably because he's mothafuckin' injured. Gallimore second string at DT?

Update: Ut oh?

In another development, receiver LaTerryal Savoy, fullback Quintin Patilla and linebacker Robbie Thornbladh - all of whom have had various recent legal issues - are no longer listed on the Michigan roster.

I assume Thornbladh is just gone, as he's a walkon. Savoy's thing, even if he's convicted on it, appears to be a one-time idiocy and not something that warrants getting booted from the team... probably nothing but something to keep an eye on.
