Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . Tru Wilson. Wilson had 4 carries for 28 yards in a little bit of action on Saturday. One reason he has not played much so far this year is because of a broken hand he suffered in camp. Another reason is that freshman Zach Charbonnet has shown promise, but Charbonnet has some vision issues and hasn’t developed the patience required.
Hit the jump for more.
Let’s see less of this guy on offense . . . Zach Charbonnet. No, I’m not looking for Charbonnet to get benched, but I would like to see Wilson take some of Charbonnet’s carries. So far Charbonnet has 61, Christian Turner has 36, and Hassan Haskins has 14. Even backup quarterback Dylan McCaffrey, who has been injured for three weeks, has 11 carries. Charbonnet is doing okay, but Wilson has a better understanding of the run game right now.
Let’s see more of this guy on defense . . . Daxton Hill. Hill has given Michigan’s defense and special teams a boost over the past couple weeks. He has 6 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, and 1 pass breakup over the past two weeks, and that’s not to mention the 25-yard catch-and-run he had against Army in week two. I agree with developing safeties slowly, but it’s about time for him to be unleashed.
Let’s see less of this guy on defense . . . no one. The defense played really well last Saturday, and the rotations seem to be just fine now, all things considered. Michael Dwumfour came back at defensive tackle and had a solid game, and Cameron McGrone is doing a decent job filling in for the injured Joshua Ross, who is not expected to be back this week.
Play of the game . . . the ball probably isn’t completed if Lavert Hill doesn’t make this play, but still, Lavert Hill stalled an Iowa drive in Michigan territory with a pick at the 4-yard line.

MVP of the game . . . Kwity Paye. Paye abused Iowa’s offensive line until he left with a lower body injury. He racked up 4 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and 2 quarterback hurries. A very close honorable mention goes to Aidan Hutchinson, who had 6 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 1 fumble forced, and 1 pass breakup. I give the edge to Paye because I felt like he set the tone early for a dominant defensive performance, but Hutchinson had a great week, too.
