We recorded this podcast from the Michigan Room of the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown. There are 13 rooms, one for every Big Ten team! Also it’s a new building owned and operated by Michigan (not Ohio State) people.
We Couldn’t Have One Without the Other
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 & Bo Store, and if it wasn’t for Rishi and Ryan we probably would be working for someone like McElwain instead of dragging him.
Our other sponsors are also key to all of this: The Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, the University of Michigan Alumni Association, Homesure Lending, Ann Arbor Elder Law, Human Element, Michigan Law Grad, Peak Wealth Management, and Lantana Hummus

We know about Speight. Need more Harbaugh Speight, less Borges. Ty Isaac in the open field is a linebacker-sized man running faster than defensive backs. Love seeing Mason Cole back at left tackle. Grant Perry is the star of the receivers.

Tunnel screens are still bad. McCray versus athletic RB in space still bad. Defense is not utterly perfect is still bad, a thing. The wheel route was McCray going under a crossing route—there were some huge offensive picks they missed but that wasn't one. Winovich doesn’t have a true backup. Introducing: The Don Brown Hat Trick. #Swatson had a great game.
3. Special Teams & Game Theory

Using a safety as a punt returner: Grant Perry was fine. Go for it on 4th and half a yard, man! Football gods won’t let you punt on 4th and 2 down two scores with six minutes left.
4. Around the Big Ten with Jamie Mac

I think they meant that song to be “Oklahoma!” but nobody from MGoBlog was willing to get deep enough into a Rogers & Hammerstein play to get it right. EMU is still 0-58 against Power 5 teams after beating Rutgers, but this is good enough to get Brian to pronounce their names. Make JT Barrett beat you. Brian forces everyone to talk about Minnesota. Purdue is already TECMO BOWL.
