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

TheWolverine.com had you covered this week, breaking down the final remnants of the 28-24 win over Akron, previewing Saturday's night game at Connecticut while Tim Sullivan and Chris Balas had incredible football and basketball recruiting coverage.

On Monday, Editor John Borton grabbed radio sideline reporter Doug Karsch for their From the Sidelines collaboration.

Using senior left tackle Taylor Lewan's post-game rant as a jumping off point, Borton also ranked the most heated interviews from Wolverines during his 20-year career covering U-M.

Sullivan had great stuff from his week down in Florida, busting out a video interview with football commitments George Campbell and Mason Cole and then providing analysis and highlights of their play.

Staying with recruiting, staff writer Kevin Minor had an update on the Wolverines' 2014 and 2015 commitments from their senior and junior seasons.

Finally, on Monday, former players Obi Ezeh and David Moosman weighed in with their thoughts on the win over Akron in their weekly columns, Monday Morning Linebacker and Monday Morning Moosman.

On Tuesday, Rivals.com national recruiting analyst Mike Farrell detailed five-star Da'Shawn Hand's upcoming visits to Florida and Alabama and while he still thinks Michigan is the favorite, he notes the Gators are a real threat.

Also, on Tuesday, Managing Editor Michael Spath and staff writer Andy Reid discussed whether tailback Fitz Toussaint gets 100 yards rushing Saturday in their weekly Point/Counterpoint podcast.

On Wednesday, Sullivan had a video interview with fellow Floridian commitment Brady Pallante and highlights.

Also on Wednesday, Balas weighed in with an insightful ITF Hoops Extra on what to expect in the 2014 class now that Signing Day is approaching.

If you attend a Michigan hockey game this season, be sure to get your legs ready for a standing ovation for 18 members of the United States military that will honored thanks to a program initiated by former Wolverine great Aaron Ward.

On Thursday, Spath began the day by opining five current players that need to step up or risk losing playing time in his weekly Maize 'N View column and also offered an insider's perspective of the Connecticut Huskies.

As he does every week, Borton sat down with former coaching legend Jerry Hanlon for a pair of podcasts, here and here, and concluded their time together with another edition of Chalk Talk.

Balas, meanwhile, outlined nine 2016 hoops targets the Maize and Blue coaching staff has identified early as potential Wolverines.

On Friday, the staff of TheWolverine.com combined to dish out another edition of Inside The Fort, breaking down what to expect this weekend along the offensive line while offering our two cents on the recruitments of Hand and four-star Malik McDowell.

Balas and former Wolverine Will Heininger worked in tandem to present a scouting report on the Huskies.

Then of course, we finished the week with Staff Picks.
