Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . Mike Sainristil. Michigan offensive coordinator Josh Gattis promised Michigan fans #speedinspace when he was hired. During the spring and then the summer, Jim Harbaugh said Sainristil was the starter at the H receiver position. We’re three games into the 2019 season, and the supposedly healthy Sainristil has yet to touch the ball even once. Not on jet sweeps. Not on screens. Not on kick returns or punt returns. Not on downfield shots.

Let’s see less of this guy on offense . . . Nick Eubanks. Or Luke Schoonmaker. Or any second tight end. Eubanks isn’t speedy in space, and neither is Schoonmaker. Michigan threw the ball to Eubanks on an arrow route, which is somewhat similar to a bubble. Why isn’t that throw going to someone who is actually fast?
Let’s see more of this guy on defense . . . Chris Hinton, Jr. Call me crazy, but I think your freshman 5-star defensive tackle should be playing defensive tackle on the goal line rather than your 229 lb. walk-on WILL linebacker. I know, I’m an outside-the-box thinker, but that’s why you guys read this blog, for my revolutionary ideas.
Let’s see less of this guy on defense . . . Jordan Anthony. I’m still baffled that Rivals ranked Anthony as a 5-star linebacker, but that idiocy notwithstanding, I am not impressed with what I have seen from the redshirt sophomore. Michigan needs Josh Ross to be healthy, and maybe the guy rotating in should be Cam McGrone, not Anthony or Devin Gil.
Play of the game . . . none. I was not impressed with any portion of Saturday’s game, including the opening long gain by Ronnie Bell. Even that play wasn’t on time and reflected the fact that Michigan can’t run even a single clean offensive play.
MVP of the game . . . Aidan Hutchinson. In my opinion, Hutchinson has been the best player on the team so far in 2019. On Saturday he had 9 tackles and 1 pass breakup. He’s been excellent, even though it didn’t matter much against Wisconsin.
