Michigan Monday: Students Get a Glimpse of The Submarine

On Saturday, Michigan students got a chance to witness a practice/scrimmage at the Big House.  Here are some of thoughts that I gathered from students that attended:

  • Rudock is the clear #1 and looked sharp.
  • Jake Butt is a difference maker
  • Injuries included Jourdan Lewis, center Pat Kugler, WR's Amara Darboh (finger) and Freddy Canteen.
  • Still no separation at RB
  • Offensive line looks a lot better and gets a ton of attention from Dreveno
  • Drake Harris (RS Freshman) and Grant Perry (Freshman) both played a lot with the 1's.
  • Jimmy was everywhere coaching the offense
My thoughts:
I love that Drake Harris and Grant Perry are getting a shot and playing well.   I think Jake Butt could be an All American TE this year.    A little concerned about RB, but maybe they all are pretty good.

Michigan's defense sounds strong and might need to win a few early season games for the Wolverines as the offense starts to gel.  It does sound though that the offense is starting to make some strides and could be lead by a much improved offensive line. 

  • 2016 Michigan commit RB Matt Falcon suffered a knee injury in his game last weekend and is probably out for the season.

  • 2016 4 star WR Ahmir Mitchell will decided between Michigan and OSU on Thursday at 5:00.  24/7 Crystal Ball is 92% Michigan.   I like our chances here.

  • If Michigan needs anymore motivation for this year, OSU is ranked #1 on the AP poll.

  • TE Naseir Upshur will announce his decision on 9/1 between FSU and Michigan.  The rumor is he has already silently committed to FSU.  So don't worry about this one. 

  • RB from Cincy C.J. Hilliard is transferring from Iowa.
