    Due to time limitations, I wasn't able to get this post done for Monday, so here it is two days later.

    Let's see more of this guy on offense . . . Karan Higdon. I've never been that sold on Higdon before, but I'm intrigued. He had 9 carries for 81 yards (9.0 yards/carry) and 2 touchdowns in this one, including a 40-yard touchdown on a toss sweep. He looks bigger and stronger this year after sitting out the spring and summer with injuries and illness. I definitely think he earned himself some additional carries.

    Visitors: Michigan vs. Wisconsin

    This might be Michigan's biggest recruiting weekend of the year, since the MSU and OSU games are on the road. So here's an early list of the visitors headed to Ann Arbor.

    2017

    Jordan Anthony - LB - Bradenton (FL) IMG Academy: Anthony is a 6'0", 220 lb. prospect with offers from Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Oklahoma, and Penn State, among others. He's a 247 Composite 4-star, the #7 outside linebacker, and #115 overall. Though he has played the last couple seasons in Florida, he's a Maryland native. The Crystal Ball is 40% in favor of Michigan. This is his official visit.

    Markquese Bell - S - Bridgeton (NJ) Bridgeton: I did a scouting report on Bell in April (LINK). He tweeted not long ago that distance is no longer a factor in his decision, which has made some people think that he's leaning away from Rutgers and perhaps toward Michigan. UPDATE: Bell is no longer planning to visit.

    Kenney "K.J." Britt - LB - Oxford (AL) Oxford: Britt is a 6'0", 232 lb. prospect with offers from Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, and Michigan, among others. He's a 247 Composite 4-star, the #15 inside linebacker, and #317 overall. So far his Crystall Ball is 67% for Auburn and 33% for Georgia.

    MLive: Harbaugh has the "utmost respect" for Les Miles, hopes to speak with him soon

    It almost sounds like there might be a plan in Jim Harbaugh's head that's brewing to get Les Miles to help out Michigan (LINK). It's a potentially interesting dynamic, because there are rumors of Les Miles not being well liked by some of the, uh, Michigan inner circle.

    Way Too Early 2017 Depth Chart: September 2016

    Back in August I took a look at how the depth chart might look in 2017 (LINK). Well, four games into the 2016 season, there are some minor changes to make. Of course, things are always fluid, there will be early departures, there will be injuries, etc. But now that we know how the 2016 team looks, we might have a better view of next season.

    What exactly is targeting?

    Joe Julius is the answer to the question: What would Jared Lorenzen be like if he grew up in London?

    Targeting is a penalty that has gained more and more attention in recent years, as leagues try to prevent head injuries in order to preserve players' health and the game itself. But a lot of people still have no idea what targeting is. It came up in Michigan's game against Penn State on Saturday, when PSU linebacker Brandon Smith was booted for targeting wide receiver Grant Perry. It came up again later in the game when some Michigan fans thought kick returner Jourdan Lewis was targeted by PSU kicker Joe "Big Toe" Julius.
