He seems to be a respected insider around here, so figured I would pass it on.

Positions of recent debate:

QB: Speight
LT: Bredeson

Not Necessarily Debated but up in the air because of all the big names... (Formatted as 1st, 2nd).

WDE: Charlton, Winowich
3-Tech: Wormley, Hurst Jr
1-Tech: Glasgow, Mone
SDE: Gary, Godin

Rest of it is as I had seen before.

May not be the starters by game #3.  In a meritocracy you get an opportunity but you have to continue to outperform your back-up to stay a starter.

My guess is at least of one the two-deep listed (if accurate) has a change in it once we play a few games.  And I'm assuming no injuries.

Was newsome 2nd at LT? And what's this mean for newsome? Another year of development? Moved to RT? Guard?

Not sure whether this is good news for next year or not. Happy for whatever makes the team better this year but can't help but think what it means for the lone next year

This is a concept that has always eluded me. Getting backups in game action against Hawaii, is that a quality rep? I would almost trust that a practice between the 1s for Michigan is better than playing backups in a 48-3 game against Hawaii who has already probably packed it in.

Let's not get too agitated here - again, the depth chart is rarely if ever the depth chart, and a projected depth may never be the depth chart, even if I do happen to think Lorenz might be pretty spot on in several cases at least. 

I can't wait until the TV cuts away to Ann Arbor with about 7-8 minutes to go before gametime and we find out who the QB is based on who happens to be taking snaps at that moment. That's how it more or less happened last year. Very Harbaugh indeed.

My guess is for heavy teams like Wisconsin, he may move to more of a Sam role to take on the run/blockers and Peppers will play more of a safety role. For most (i.e., spread) opponents, speed is at more of a premium on defense so Peppers can play that role.

We'll see different personnel in different spots based on opponent, down/distance, etc. At least that is my understanding.
