Nightly Roundup: January 5, 2020

Nico Collins is coming back for his senior year, as expected:

I love Charles Woodson, but his affinity for Marcus Ray is borderline ridiculous:

Sam Webb put together a list of five coaching candidates to take Chris Partridge’s spot. Hit the LINK for the full rundown, but here are the names:

  • Roy Anderson
  • Devin Bush, Sr.
  • Steve Clinkscale
  • Cato June
  • Aubrey Pleasant

I would rank them in this order: Clinkscale, Bush, Pleasant, June, Anderson.

SBNation put together a list of the top 10 most irrelevant athletes of the decade, and MSU’s Glenn Winston made the cut (LINK). Spoiler: he had 1 career NFL carry, which resulted in -8 yards and a fumble. Screw that guy and the Spartan he rode in on.

Pro Football Focus appears to like Maurice Hurst, Jr.

This is totally unrelated to Michigan, but it’s crazy that Vince Carter has played in the NBA in four different decades:

Change is Coming: Offense

Every year the new season brings changes big and small. It seems that the 2020 season will bring some pretty significant changes to what we see on the field at Michigan, from players to coaches. Here’s a look at the expected changes and what we might see in 2020.

The impact is rated as being positive (+), negative (-), or neutral (=).

Out: QB Shea Patterson
In: Dylan McCaffrey/Joe Milton
Patterson was just the third quarterback to throw for 3,000 yards in a season, but many weren’t happy with his performance. Redshirt junior McCaffrey and redshirt sophomore Joe Milton will battle it out, and the belief (on my end) is that the loser of that battle will not finish out his career at Michigan. McCaffrey is the better overall player – both passing and running – but a concussion and a collarbone injury have ended his previous two seasons.
Impact: =

Michigan 39, Indiana 14

IT’S A TRAP! I was expecting a relatively close battle (I predicted 28-17 Michigan), and the great and powerful Lee Corso predicted an Indiana victory. But it turns out Michigan had other ideas this year. After a slow start on defense, the Wolverines defense put the clamps on Indiana. Michigan was down 14-7 at one point and then scored 32 unanswered points the rest of the way. Indiana’s secondary was severely outmatched in this one, and Michigan took advantage to the tune of 366 passing yards and 5 touchdowns through the air.

Hit the jump.

Michigan vs. Rutgers Awards

I just really like this picture (image via MGoBlue)

Let’s see more of this guy on offense . . . Donovan Peoples-Jones. Peoples-Jones played quite a bit on Saturday, but I just want to take this opportunity to express how important Peoples-Jones is to this offense. I really think his absence from the field hampered Michigan during the first few weeks of the season. The team was missing its best receiver and the only reliable punt returner. His 4 catches for 62 yards didn’t set the world on fire, but he offers a different element to the team than anyone else can provide.

Hit the jump for more.
