This Week’s Quick Slants – October 3
Here are some interesting tidbits for the week of October 1st, after the pressers and radio shows as of October 2nd 2018:
- ATH Michael Barrett has moved from Viper to WR – another dynamic weapon on offense? Yes, please!
- WR Nate Schoenle may return this weekend from injury
- DE Rashan Gary and RB Chris Evans may not play against Maryland due to injury – look for Aiden Hutchinson and Kwity Paye, among others to step up big if Gary can’t go.
- QB Shea Patterson says he should take his O-Line to dinner and couldn’t be more thankful for them. Also says the team needs to treat every game as if it’s OSU in both preparation and in playing the actual game.
- Harbaugh says B1G leading 46 penalties for Michigan is “concerning”, loves the word “homecoming”, and does not love the “phantom holding” call against Higdon from the Nebraska game.
- DE Chase Winovich could be on pace for a historic year. 37 career tackles for loss is 4th best in Michigan history. The all time leader is Brandon Graham with 56. With 7 games left, 2.7-ish per game would get him to the record. Averaging about 1.9 per game so far this year.
- Michigan target Lewis Cine set to announce decision on October 10. BluePrint Confidence Level 85% that Michigan lands him. 😉
- Fullback Ben Mason quoted through teammate as having an intense desire to shove his face mask right into other face masks – sounds about right for any fullback I’d want on my team.
