We are in a car.
The reason we can put out so much audio content now is it’s paid for. The show is presented by UGP & Moe's and frankly would not be happening without them; Rishi and Ryan and their people have been huge MGoBlog supporters from the start.
Our other sponsors are also key in the expanding empire: thanks to Homesure Lending, Ann Arbor Elder Law, the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, the University of Michigan Alumni Association, Deo Bookkeeping, Michigan Law Grad, Defensive Drivers Group, Tailgater Concierge, and Peak Wealth Management.

We went to a bumpin’ IHOP. Illinois has road barrels for days for no apparent reason. Iowa has great fans and a great stadium. The O’Neill crew was once again spectacularly incompetent but that’s no excuse for Michigan’s passing game joining them. Speight is hurt. Playcalling not optimal.

Iowa’s punter is a golden god. We propose a new rule for rugby punting to stop this silliness with punters running into blockers. Damn Ferentz [Ed-S: who’s such a bad guy he built a children’s hospital that overlooks the stadium so they can watch Iowa football through their windows] for making correct tactical decisions only when facing Michigan.

Congratulations to Mark Dantonio and the 2016 The Situation Trophy-Winning Spartans for their first Big Ten victory. Ohio State defenestrated Maryland too. Penn State-Indiana was interesting but you can’t tell from this podcast because Jamie’s heart is visibly broken. This is a very visual podcast.
