    Breaking down Michigan's 2020 schedule

    Breaking down Michigan's 2020 schedule

    In this episode, we break down the ins and outs of the Michigan football team’s 2020 schedule.
    We open by reiterating the schedule for those who missed it, then begin a series of discussions. We take a look at the schedule as a whole, the addition of Northwestern and what we liked about the Big Ten’s emphasis on flexibility in its decisions. Then, we break down some of the other nuances, such as the Wolverines’ tough first three weeks, how that impacts fall camp, Ohio State being midway through the schedule (October 24) and the mental hurdle for having to play games after The Game.
    Then, we take a look at some superlatives, including some disagreement on Michigan’s biggest trap game, discussion on which three-game stretch is tougher, which game will Michigan miss fans the most and whether this schedule is more or less favorable than the initial 2020 schedule.

    Paused workouts, recruiting talk and schedule guessing

    Paused workouts, recruiting talk and schedule guessing

    In a roundabout episode, we discuss Michigan's paused workouts, the football team's recruiting and take a stab at figuring out what the Wolverines' 2020 football schedule may look like.
    We open by discussing Michigan Athletics' decision to pause voluntary workouts for its ice hockey, field hockey, volleyball and swim and dive teams. We touch on how volatile everything can be in the case of an outbreak, how Michigan is handling it and why the decision should not be binding for the football team, among other topics.
    We also discuss football recruiting, looking at the Wolverines' more aggressive approach toward the 2021 and 2022 classes, Giles Jackson's recruiting impact, the difference a quarterback recruit can make and Michigan's unenviable task of trying to close the gap against Ohio State.
    We close with speculative talk on the Wolverines' schedule and what it may look like in 2020, in addition to discussing the Wolverines' lack of names in 247Sports' ranking of college football's top 50 players.

    Hintons take a stand, and should football be delayed?

    Hintons take a stand, and should football be delayed?

    In this episode, we discuss Chris and Mya Hinton — parents of Michigan DT Christopher Hinton — speaking up publicly in several national publications about their concerns for the college football season. We also discuss our thoughts on FBS schools' handlings of COVID-19 so far and whether or not the NCAA should delay the season.
    The Hintons' comments are discussed first, as we break down their parent coalition, them providing a voice for so many concerned parents and more thoughts on what they had to say. We also discuss the NCAA's actions so far, and whether it has been enough.
    Then, we discuss the Hintons' broader claim for college football to "pump the brakes," and what college football should do in terms of delaying or modifying the season. Along the way, we also touch on how Michigan, other Big Ten schools and the NCAA have handled things so far, and what it means moving forward.

This has become one of my favorite podcasts! Sam is super knowledgeable and always associates with intelligent “guests”. As a measure of how good he is, even Buckeye Nation tunes in to get the scoop!

Like it

Yo man, this is good stuff. I just had to give a one star to different Michigan podcast but you guys are keeping it real. 5 for keeping it 100.
One of the things you do is lay down wisdom. The show is reasonable and interesting. For instance, I enjoy the stories about how players can use smart tactics to navigate all of the recruitment and team realities.
