All weight gain and all weight loss are good, so if you lose 50 pounds and gain it back you get superpowers
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. Offense: Debut of Speed In Space
Offense is different but not that different; Gattis keeping some things in the barn. Two-minute drill actually 2mD'd. Double QB formation was pointless and not very practiced. RPO-RPO-PA TD on the other hand is glorious. Four-verts TD to McKeon, and some bombs to Bell—they're not afraid to strike fast and deep. CoJo debut is a wrong-shoulder catch that none of us were expecting. Please put Nico in the slot if we're going to ball it up quick. Want some Harbaugh back in the offense. Charbonnet blitz pickups: on, trucking: on, acceleration: on, other backs: good enough that Tru's gotta be 3rd down back. Sat in pocket too long (both QBs) even when orbit motion got RBs wide open. Schoonmaker looks big. Karsen Barnhart ahead of all the freshmen.

Hot takes. Cornerbacks: Ambry and Gray both looked really good. Still a three-man rotation—not weird for this game but weird if it goes on. Uche gets off the line so dang fast—this QB frustratingly kept throwing accurately after Uche's already nailing him. Ben Mason thing not going well. Going 3-3-5—that's one way to make chicken salad. Hawkins looked alright. MTSU's center went out screaming. Asher O'Hara you are so obnoxious. Hutchinson better pass rusher inside than out, Danna had a nice hurry, DEs nerfed by offense's design.
3. Special Teams/Game Theory
starts at 1:01:55
Had timeouts at least but when you have timeouts you don't need to clock the ball and burn a down dudes. Of all the dudes to put back there for punt returns, NOT LAVERT HILL. Hudson had a lot of pressure on a punt. Moody had field goals, most of the kickoffs, Nordin had the extra points. Wall of the non-dressed teammates? Included German Green, Jalen Perry, Sammy Faustin.
4. Around the Big Ten wsg Jamie Mac

Northwestern: Hunter Johnson was terrible, this is going to be gross. Minnesota: lines are major concerns after getting pushed around by a (good) I-AA team. Tulsa is the most incompetent jokers ever—MSU crowd is chanting "We want Rocky!" Wisconsin: played a bad team but Taylor catching passes out of the backfield is terrifying. Rutgers had a functional passing offense (against a terrible defense, with three picks, but hey!). Purdue? Purdue??! Five turnovers…Purdue. Nevada's kicker got a scholarship after the game. Brandon Peters isn't the worst. Nebraska got into a game with South Bama? Hoosiers hold off Ball State. Iowa: Very Iowa, lose Alaric Jackson.
