In case you missed it: This week's best features
Following Michigan's dramatic 41-30 victory over Notre Dame last weekend, there has been a lot to talk about, and we've had you covered from every angle, while Recruiting Editor Tim Sullivan traveled to Florida for highlights/interviews of U-M commitments. If you missed any of it, you can find the very best all in one place.
Monday started with Sullivan and Senior Editor Chris Balas recapping the recruiting elements involved in Under the Lights II in this podcast.
Sullivan was in attendance for 2014 commitment Noah Furbush's most recent game, offering his analysis and plenty of highlights.
Sticking with recruiting, Rivals.com and TheWolverine.com were at five-star Jabrill Peppers' game last weekend, and we have an interview with Peppers and fellow U-M commit Juwan Bushell-Beatty, plus photos of Peppers in action.
In football news, former players David Moosman and Obi Ezeh had their Monday Morning columns, talking about the successes and struggles of the offense and defense in the night game.
In U-M's win over ND, fifth-year senior placekicker Brendan Gibbons set a Michigan record with his 15th and 16th consecutive field goals, and the former record-holder, Remy Hamilton, told Managing Editor Michael Spath he was happy for Gibbons.
We concluded the first day of the week by inviting The Detroit News Angelique Chengelis to our offices for Monday Morning Sports Reporters.
On Tuesday, Sullivan had updates with two visitors in attendance for the night game, and both Ray Buford II and Shea Patterson were blown away, but the BIGGEST news was that five-star defensive end Da'Shawn Hand had an amazing visit.
Remarkably, Michigan is 5-2 under head coach Brady Hoke in games it has allowed 400 yards of offense, including last week, Andy Reid writes. The offense line, meanwhile, feels good, but not great about its performance against the Fighting Irish.
Twenty-five former Wolverines are active in the NFL and Balas has a report of how they did in week one.
On Wednesday, Balas debuted the 2015 Defensive Hot Board, keeping track of the prospects Michigan is already recruiting.
Editor John Borton caught up with former linebacker Jarrett Irons, who has a personal stake in the Michigan-Notre Dame rivalry as his younger brother played for the Irish.
On Thursday and Friday, Balas delivered non-stop basketball recruiting, with updates on 2015 target Eric Davis, 2014 small forward Donte Grantham, and 2014 five-star James Blackmon and for good measure, had a summary of all of Michigan's 2015 targets.
Also on Thursday, Spath asked: Where will Jeremy Gallon rank among Michigan's best receivers when his career ends? in his weekly Maize 'N View column.
Inside The Huddle, featuring former players Doug Skene, Ron Simpkins and Phil Brabbs at The Arena Sports Bar in downtown Ann Arbor, had one final take on the Notre Dame game from a players' perspective.
Borton sat down with legendary former assistant coach Jerry Hanlon for a podcast and a Chalk Talk video session.
This won't be a big weekend, but a few visitors will be at The Big House to watch Michigan host Akron.
On Friday, like every Friday, we bring you Inside The Fort, where we dropped inside information on football recruiting, basketball recruiting and overall team play.
Borton wrote about the possibility of a five-touchdown passing performance from a Michigan quarterback - something that has never been done - with insight from a former signal-caller.
And finally, we bring you staff picks for this weekend's game.
