Michigan Monday: #Speed In Space

Michigan fans have been walking in the desert and new Michigan OC Josh Gattis is the water.   He has been on the job for a few minutes and already knows what the Michigan faithful wants to hear.   Here is the water:

He made a lot of fans with that tweet!

Michigan Basketball took its record to 17-0 which is a program record for the number of wins to start the season.

The star of the game was clearly Zavier Simpson who went for a career high 24 points and the first half MVP was Jon Teske who went for 17 points in the half.   It's great that this team shares the ball and somebody different is the MVP every game.

The Wolverines have 5 days off before they play in Madison vs. Wisconsin on Saturday.  It will be very difficult to take the streak to 18 in that building.

  • Michigan did hire the co-DC with BC Anthony Campanile on Friday.  He is expected to coach DB's and maybe the Viper role.   DL coach is the remaining open spot on the coaching staff.  The expectation is that Pep has moved on, even though nothing has been announced.  

  • Michigan has been in contact with graduate transfer DT Zach Abercrumbia  from Rice who has plenty of offers to continue his playing career for one more season.   Michigan needs a DT and a RB through a transfer or in the next few weeks in the 2019 class.   

  • OSU Tate Martell seems to be down to WVU, Miami, and Louisville.  Jalen Hurts is also considering Miami as well. 

  • Michigan also got a PWO commit from 6'7 300 pound OT Zach Conti this weekend. 

  • Former Michigan coach for 10 minutes Dan Enos is now the new OC at Miami.   Alabama needs to hire a few offensive coaches.  

  • Penn State has 6 players in the Transfer Portal.

Oh wow. I didn't realize PSU had 6 guys. That's big.

The Aubry Solomon situation still confuses me. Still a bit of a shock he left and to TN?? Why go to a middle tier SEC school.

These new hires are great but the jury is still out on both. John even though was a Co OC didn't call plays and this will be his first time play calling. Makes me wonder how much freedom coach Harbaugh will give him. John jumping from job to job makes me wonder how long he will be in AA.

Anthony I think it's a safe hire and can see him sticking around for awhile. I think coach Chris P should be promoted to DL coach and give him a pay bump.

Would love to see us pull Sean Spencer from PSU, he's done a great job with the Dline there.
