We are once again at the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown.
We can do this because people support us. You should support them too so they’ll want to do it again next year! The show is presented by UGP & The Bo Store, and if it wasn’t for Rishi and Ryan we wouldn't get to do this for a living.
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

Point for rain: reduced commercial experience felt fine. Feels much more like a football game when it’s not half commercial time. Getting 30-40 yards per drive and not scoring. Ben Mason hurdled a guy. Higdon is our favorite Michigan RB since…Toussaint? Hart? Patterson and Gentry are doing better against zone, except when Gentry cut away from all the blocking. Sean McKeon must be angry that Gentry didn’t get the reverse pass. Fun playcalls came out. Pass pro held up mostly, Patterson saved them when they didn’t. Ronnie Bell is a Guy.

Playing Maryland is waiting for them to hit their big play and it didn’t happen—credit to Don Brown and the defense for having their assignments down. Did it without 3/4 of the starting DL. Uche had more great play off the edge—shoulda been a sack. Gary injury is precautionary, not hurting thanks to Paye. Gil had a Bush-like edge play. We did not like the call on Bush. Congrats to the viral holding chart since Michigan got two legit holding calls this game; if Michigan gets to normal. Brian Cook nicknames by sport: B-Cook (football), Cookie (hockey), Cooks, (baseball).
3. Special Teams, General Thoughts, Wisconsin Thoughts
Starts at 47:38
Other than THAT they did well on special teams—Ty Johnson is just fast. Ambry out there running sprints. Two guys back on 4th and 13s to nerf the Aussie directional kicker. Nordin up to 8/9 and isn’t missing chipshots. Late advice for Ty Johnson. Disappointed there was no Max Bortenschlager or Ralph Friedgen. Redshirt watch: Samuels redshirt burned. BVS not listed, probably getting his shirt now that Wangler is around. Anything project to Wisconsin? Ready for Stanford to go back to being bad so we’re not losing recruits there.
4. Around the Big Ten with Jamie Mac
Starts at 1:03:22
Big Ten’s signature win is…Texas? TCU? How to beat MSU: PASS! Thorson with 17 passes on 1st down. State saved their yardage dignity with a 75-yard drive to run out the clock down 10. State is going to turtle against PSU and save it all for Michigan again—State has a base speed option running game? Arthur Sitkowski upped his INT count against Illinois. Indiana competitive until Parris Campbell in all the space. OSU defense is a little discombobulated, Haskins is tearing it up, has so many great weapons to throw to. Direct snap to a TE is peak Iowa but is it legal? Wisconsin gives up 500 yards of offense to Nebraska, loses Scott Nelson to targeting for our first half. Throw the ball the next 2 weeks.
