Special Guests: New York Times bestselling author John U. Bacon joins us to talk about his latest book, Overtime
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-Vox 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, The Phil Klein Insurance Group, FuegoBox, and Perrin Brewing
1. Preview Wrap
Brian is tired and terrified by July betting lines. This feels like at least 10 wins but the identity of the one or two losses means everything. Michigan finally has QB depth and OSU doesn’t! Dylan McCaffrey will play. Michael Dwumfour is the guy who really matters on the interior and Brad Hawkins is an X-Factor too. Michigan took away slot fades last year but may have to change that approach, Hawkins will be the guy to defend those.

John Bacon jumps on the podcast to discuss his new book “Overtime”, which has been riling up people on Brian’s Twitter timeline. He shares stories about blackmail, Sarah Harbaugh, Grant Newsome’s leg, and amateurism in college sports.
3. Extra Bacon
starts at 44:55
Bacon is high on Ryan Day but admits the uncertainty. He feels that Michigan is set up best of any season since 2006. Schedule is difficult but it sets up well. Indiana is the trap game of all time. Bacon thinks PSU and MSU is falling apart. Bacon says this is Gattis's offense now and the tempo change is the most important. Bacon says Harbaugh scheduled Army. Team feels this is the most relaxed it’s been since Harbaugh arrived.
4. MTSU Preview
starts at 1:09:32
MTSU has a good slot receiver who is Giles Jackson but slow. Everyone is 50 lbs lighter than everyone on Michigan. Scott Shafer is the MTSU defensive coordinator. Seth feels that there’s nothing to learn from this game, Brian says that we can look at Brad Hawkins vs. the slot. Seth makes an Arrested Development reference. New QB after a 4 year starter leaves.
Ever week on MGoRadio we feature a different local or friendly band. This week we’re honored to have Duke Charrell from Parliament Funkadelic (George Clinton’s band). Check out Duke’s stuff on Spotify.
Apparently all the guys from Parliament Funkadelic are from Michigan, most are huge Michigan fans, and they all funk around with their own stuff. If you’d like your band featured on here, reach out.
