TRANSFERS

WR Freddy Canteen (Notre Dame): Canteen did not make a catch in Saturday’s 49-20 win over Boston College, but he did suffer a torn labrum, which will put him out for the rest of the season.

LB Ross Douglas (Rutgers): Douglas made 2 tackles in Rutgers’s 65-0 demolishing of Morgan State. Wow, maybe Rutgers is actually really good this year.

QB Shane Morris (CMU): Morris fell back to Earth this week with a 23/46 performance for 277 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. He’s thrown for 8 TDs and 3 INTs this year and has a 134.75 passer efficiency rating.

Hit the jump for more.

Michigan vs. Air Force Awards

Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . Zach Gentry. Gentry’s snaps seem to have increased over the past week or two, and his targets have, too. After not recording a reception in week one, he has 3 catches for 71 yards in the last two games. It was mentioned during the broadcast yesterday that Tim Drevno sees him as being similar to Coby Fleener at the same age, except a better blocker. That’s saying something, considering Gentry is still a terrible blocker. Regardless, Michigan needs offensive playmakers, and Gentry can get separation from linebackers and safeties.

Hit the jump for more awards from Saturday’s win.

Michigan 29, Air Force 13

Donovan Peoples-Jones

Red zone woes. Michigan has scored touchdowns on just 1 of 10 opportunities inside the 20-yard line. They don’t have difference-makers on offense at quarterback or wide receiver, and running back Ty Isaac needs a crease to be at his best. For the past couple years, Michigan could bring in Jabrill Peppers as a Wildcat quarterback, running back, or slot guy, but they don’t have that guy right now. The offensive line needs to improve to help make that difference, and Wilton Speight needs to be better, too. Luckily, kicker Quinn Nordin has been pretty darn good in his first three games, and he’s actually tied for #1 nationally with 11 made field goals (on 13 attempts). That is good for Nordin, but it’s disappointing that Michigan has attempted 13 field goals, which is the most in the country.

Hit the jump for more on Saturday’s win.
