We can do this because people support us. You should support them! The show is presented by UGP & The Bo Store, and if it wasn’t for Rishi and Ryan we’d be all be very sad ex-SBNation employees with “real” jobs.
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

2. Wisconsin Recap
starts at 27:27
This may be the high watermark of the season for UFR grading of the blocking. Wisconsin’s defensive ends really were atrocious after all. Still, there were very few missed blitz pickups, very few missed blocks. Lots of new stuff too. Patterson was a little jumpy, perhaps hasn’t yet adjusted to new and improved pass protection. Still having zone issues. Aubrey Solomon was able to stop the bleeding at the defensive line in the second half. Wisconsin’s OLine is still elite. Slants were mostly shut down.
3. MSU Defense
starts at 52:40
The defensive backs are not 2013 caliber but the front seven is still very good. The #1 team against the run, though they’ve definitely had a soft strength of schedule. This will be the toughest test yet for Cesar Ruiz against MSU DT Raequan Williams. Secondary is soft but they don’t give up a lot of big plays.
4. MSU Offense
starts at 1:08:03
MSU does not have a good run offense. LJ Scott is hurt and the other guys are guys. Spartans had success on the ground early in the 2016 game with their early script and expect that again. Will have some tricks ready this time. They will try to get it to Felton Davis often, though it didn’t work much last year. Brian Lewerke is having problems protecting the football. Michigan State has a lot of injuries. Seth starts to rant about ghosts.
