I just really hope we can win this game without any injuries but particularly to Fields. He’s the one guy we can’t lose. Michigan will bring the pressure and I am hoping we pass more than we did against Penn State and get the ball out quickly. Let Fields loose if nothing else works and to keep them honest but lean on RB’s and receivers to make plays. Can’t wait to watch. Go Bucks!

Let’s hope Coach Day runs JK and Master outside more on Saturday if the off tackle stuff isn’t working, vs letting Fields take hits.

Right. Day is a great coach and I trust him to do what  it takes to win while still being smart and reasonably cautious.

Running outside was working great against PSU.

It looks like weather could be a factor again. Ball protection will be key. How about using our TEs with short slant passes? It worked well last year! Just wish the TEs got more love especially in short yardage situations.

I hear ya. Yeah passing game could definitely be affected by weather but I don’t expect it to disappear completely and I would love to see our TE’s make plays!

The TEs will be used in this game. Rest assured.

I feel like Im always hoping for that in games 50bucks. Gimme those short slants to the big guys. Keeps the QB from getting hit and gets you positive yardage when the run gets shut down. With guys like Ruckert and Berry it should be a heavy part of the game plan especially with inclement weather.

When the game is on the line, winners want the ball.

Urban still running the show in BIG games, so much for Day opening things up in the BIG games.

The weather was a big factor, and the 3 fumbles lost made the game plan more conservative. I really don't think this was the type of tightening up we saw under Meyer. Meyer went to QB runs at the absence of all else. JK Dobbins was the lead carrier by a mile and was never abandoned even when the game was slipping away. And when it counted, Day called for a deep throw down the sideline to give a chance for Olave to make the play, and he did.

There's some scary reminiscence, but I think it is substantively different.

That is troubling. Last week looked like an Urban-called game. I guess we have to trust them. USE OUR ATHLETES.

Desperate people do desperate things...keep it clean _ichigan players. I don't trust those rat bastards. The mGo has been full of "Take Fields out" comments.

Nothing cleanses the soul like a no call pass interference.
