Michigan vs. Middle Tennessee State Awards

Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . Zach Charbonnet. The true freshman earned the first start for a freshman in a season opener since Sam McGuffie in 2008. And let me throw out the suggestion that Charbonnet will have a better career in a Michigan uniform (McGuffie had 486 rushing yards, 175 receiving yards, and 4 touchdowns in his one season in Ann Arbor). Charbonnet had 8 carries for 90 yards and 2 catches for 9 yards. He showed some toughness, vision, pass catching ability, pass blocking ability, and a little bit of speed.

Michigan 40, Middle Tennessee 21

There’s a lot that we could get into with the new offense, so I think it might be best to just go position-by-position on that side of the ball.

The two-quarterback thing needs to be nixed. Jim Harbaugh and Josh Gattis are probably trying to make Dylan McCaffrey happy by putting him on the field with Shea Patterson, but it’s a bad move. The offense isn’t in sync when both are on the field. Whoever’s behind center is late getting the play off, and then they threw an inside screen to McCaffrey, who was immediately swarmed under by big guys. Why put your lanky backup QB in a situation where he catches a ball three yards away from 250+ pound defensive linemen and linebackers?

2019 Season Countdown: #37 Jordan Glasgow

Name: Jordan Glasgow
Height:
6’1″
Weight:
223 lbs.
High school:
Aurora (IL) Marmion Academy
Position:
Linebacker
Class:
Fifth year senior
Jersey number:
#29
Last year:
I ranked Glasgow #51 and said he would be a backup safety (LINK). He made 28 tackles, 3 tackles for loss, 2 sacks, and 1 forced fumble.
TTB Rating:
N/A

Glasgow, the last of three walk-on brothers, enters 2019 as a key backup after having a career-best season in 2018. He went from a special teams standout early in his career to a good backup player last year, making 28 tackles and 2 sacks. He backed up Khaleke Hudson at Viper and even found himself on the field at times along with Hudson.

This year we should expect to see more of the same from Glasgow. He appears to be pretty locked in as the backup Viper, and he even took some reps this spring at WILL linebacker. Speaking in the spring, Don Brown stated that we will probably see him at both positions in 2019. While Glasgow is a versatile defender, I’m not sure how much of a drop-off there is to go from him to Michael Barrett as the #3 Viper or, say, Cam McGrone as the next WILL option. My guess is that he’s significantly ahead of Barrett and it’s basically a wash between him and McGrone. Regardless of how his position shakes out, I expect to see him with a lot of special teams action and to have an impact on the defense.

Prediction: Backup linebacker, special teamer
