It wasn’t pretty, but the Michigan Wolverines were able to hold off the Detroit Titans by a score of 71-62 and avoid an early season upset Thursday night in Ann Arbor.
We’re back with our Q&A segment. This week, it’s Pete Volk who was kind enough to answer a few questions for us about what to expect out of Maryland this week when they go against Michigan. Pete is the deputy editor of SB Nation’s college football page, as well as the managing editor of Testudo Times, SB Nation’s Maryland Terrapins branch.
In Part 3 of our series, we will be profiling Jeff Long, the current Arkansas Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics. Long is another name we keep hearing for the AD position. He is viewed by many as highly qualified and as one of the few top candidates. Here is his profile.
This last weekend gave us some good matchups, a shocking blowout and an FBS rushing record–all in the Big Ten Conference. In case you missed any of the action, here are the scores and notable stats.
Pro-style. Spread. Spread option. Triple option.
There are almost as many offensive philosophies in college football as there are teams. Since we had a bye this last week I thought it would be interesting to discuss the underlying principles of the two offenses I played under: the spread option and pro-style. This year’s offense, while different, seems to operate under similar pro-style principles. To be clear, I am not evaluating Michigan’s offense this year; I wasn’t coached in that offense so I don’t think I’m qualified to discuss it in depth. Those guys are working hard and doing their best. I think they’ll surprise you before the year is over.
The Michigan Wolverines rode the backs of Max Biefeldt and Zak Irvin as they downed Bucknell in the second game of this season to advance to 2-0.
It is officially time to move on from Frank Clark at Michigan. His actions off the field will cost him—and his former team—the opportunity to display a great deal of talent on the field. Clark was arguably the Wolverines’ best past rusher of the season, and he was just coming off the game of his career against Northwestern with eight total tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and 1.5 sacks. Now it will be up to junior Mario Ojemudia to step up at the weak-side defensive end position for Michigan.
Michigan Senior defensive end Frank Clark, was dismissed from the team early Monday morning due to a violation of team rules.
