In case you missed it: This week's best features

Game week finally arrived, and with it, TheWolverine.com has ramped up its coverage to bring you everything you need to know about the Maize and Blue, their opponent, Central Michigan, and recruiting. If there is a story you missed along the way, we have captured the best of the best for you.

Every Monday, former Wolverines David Moosman and Obi Ezeh will bring you their thoughts on the season. Moosman opened up with his promise to the fans and a request while Ezeh detailed what he's looking for Saturday.

Among its pressing concerns for 2015, Michigan must land a quarterback. Tim Sullivan went to Brother Rice's scrimmage last week to gauge the prospects of in-state signal-caller Alex Malzone.

Also on Monday, Andy Reid captured the emotions of Michigan's four newest football captains.

Moving on to Tuesday, Sullivan addressed the elephant in the room when it comes to 2015 recruiting - how many spots will be available? - while also breaking the news that four-star safety Montae Nicholson is no longer an option for the Wolverines.

Quarterback Devin Gardner will be critical to the success of the Maize and Blue this year, and Chris Balas tackles the challenge the junior signal-caller will face.

Five-star and No. 2 player nationally Jabrill Peppers started his senior season with a bang, and Sullivan has both a video interview and a breakdown of Peppers' amazing TD run from his first game.

While football recruiting generally dominates the conversation these days, Balas reported an elite 2014 basketball player will be in town this weekend.

Every Thursday, Michael Spath will bring you his Maize 'N View column. This week he ranked the freshmen on expected impact in 2013 and offered a preview of what the column will look like the rest of the year.

In a new feature on TheWolverine.com, former players Doug Skene, Ron Simpkins and Phil Brabbs will sit down each week (at The Arena Sports Bar Wed. nights at 8:00 p.m.) to discuss relevant issues from their point of view.

Michigan coaching legend Jerry Hanlon returns for another season of breakfast conversation with John Borton, and his podcasts are must-listen material, including a look at Michigan and a look at the opponent.

To complete the Hanlon trifecta, the old coach took to the whiteboard in our offices to explain the differences between the spread offense Michigan had been using in 2011-12 and the pro-style U-M will employ this season.

Every week, we post Inside The Fort at noon on Fridays, delivering you the best scoop we pick up from football, basketball, hockey and recruiting.

On the precipice of their first game, what are the Wolverines thinking? Borton talked to current and former players to find out.

Finally, we conclude our week with our rendition of Staff Picks for tomorrow's opener against Central Michigan.
