UCF hitting harder. [Eric Upchurch]

Sponsors

Our sponsors make all of this possible. The show is presented by UGP & Moe's, and their newest outlet, an entire store on Main Street dedicated to Bo. We'll be doing our Homecoming Edition of the weekly Friday Moe's Show from there in case you need an excuse to look inside. It's downtown, at 333 South Main, if "The storefront where Sarah Harbaugh is trying to yank her struggling husband from the door jamb" isn't clue enough.

Also thanks to the rest of our sponsors: The University of Michigan Alumni Association, Homesure Lending, Michigan Law Grad, the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, Liz Crowe and Ann Arbor Elder Law.

Offense

starts at 1:00

Maybe Scott Frost is quite a tool after all. Nevertheless the game was decided by scoring points, which Michigan accomplished through the air because that’s what UCF left them.

Defense

starts at 26:00

Winovich and Gary over-pursued, Glasgow has some range, Dymonte had a bad angle, McCray should kill more receivers, Peppers should have been in there instead. The corners are good.

Special Teams

starts at 40:22

When was the last time Michigan blocked four kicks? What is the fourth-last blocked kick for Michigan?

Talking Big Ten w/ Jamie Mac

starts at 49:54

Iowa crushed Iowa State—AIRBHG has his work cut out for him. Northwestern doinked. Purdue congratulated for above-average loss to Cincy. Ohio State plays competitive 48-3 game vs. Tulsa. Pitt is not worthy of Penn State’s rivalry. Brian is doing better than Howard. Rote Wisconsin, Maryland, Nebraska, Minnesota blowouts ignored.

There was a Twitter post going around that made it look like Frost avoided Harbaugh; didn't see the handshake until well after we recorded this yesterday.

The postgame comments still lend credence to the "okay, fine, this guy is kind of a jerk" theory.

Brian - after listening to the podcast there were three things about the special teams I was surprised you didn't talk more about:

1- Our first glimpse at the punt team showed a weird hybrid formation between pro/spread. Thoughts?

2- The Kenny Allen muffed punt.

3- The other kickoff that wasn't a touchback was tactical. UCF had a penalty and as a result UM kicked off high and short, where Jordan Glasgow seemed to force a fumble. It looked like a very smart strategy.
