Nightly Roundup: April 1, 2019

Ed Warinner

I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I’ve been extremely busy, and there just hasn’t been enough time in the day to get everything done. Thanks for your patience!

Aaron McMann writes a “No Huddle? No Problem” post focused on Ed Warinner (LINK).

Former Michigan preferred walk-on commit Zonterio Weekley is headed to WMU as a PWO instead (LINK). Here’s a list of Michigan’s preferred walk-ons for 2019 (LINK).

Here’s the offensive line two-deep right now (LINK).

Michigan vs. Wisconsin Awards


Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . Dylan McCaffrey. I liked that Michigan started trying to devise ways to get McCaffrey involved in the offense, even with Shea Patterson still in the game. It didn’t prove beneficial in this game (McCaffrey lined up at slot receiver, motioned in behind the QB, and then ran a return motion while Michigan threw a quick screen to the opposite side), but it may set up some things in the future. The presence of an athletic QB (who had a 44-yard TD run) who can also throw the ball is probably more versatile than having a Wildcat QB like Jabrill Peppers, even though McCaffrey isn’t as explosive.

So…uh…how about that offensive line? It hasn’t been often that we have said this over the past few years, but the offensive line play was excellent. The Badgers’ defense isn’t as good as it has been in some other recent seasons – the linebackers aren’t as good, and the defensive line was banged up. But it’s still a well coached unit, and the linebackers are solid. This offensive line would have still been mauled in recent years, but Shea Patterson had oodles of time to throw, and Karan Higdon had good enough run blocking to bounce some runs to the outside for big chunk gains. The coverage on the back end was good for the most part, so Patterson still had to scramble (and tried to do too much at times), but there weren’t many mistakes up front. Credit goes to the players, obviously, but I think the Ed Warinner Effect is becoming more and more apparent.

Hit the jump for the rest of the recap.
