Self-Indulgent Post of the Week: Let’s Get Off Topic

I’ve been listening to the Talking Football Podcast with Coach Ron McKie, Jr. for the last eight months or so, and he has a pretty interesting interview tactic of asking three questions to the subjects of his interviews. I’m stealing that, and I’m going to ask myself the same questions.

What are you googling? I’ve been googling different ways to run the pin-and-pull. In case you don’t know, the pin-and-pull is a running play that Michigan has run various versions of over the years, including during the Rich Rodriguez and Jim Harbaugh years. Basically, uncovered linemen block down toward the ball, and covered linemen pull toward the playside.

What are you watching? I’m watching Jack Ryan on Amazon Prime, most notably starring John Krasinski from The Office. It’s a lot like Homeland, another one of my favorite shows.

What are you looking forward to? I’m looking forward to going to the gym. Seriously. When it’s football season, I don’t have a ton of time to work out. Now when I get a chance to lift weights and get some cardio in, I look forward to it. I played some basketball the other day for the first time since last summer, and it felt good.

What are you guys googling? What are you watching? And what are you looking forward to?
