Week In Review Is On Nerd Alert

Mike Carter-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan squeaked by Northwestern last season, and the Wildcats are the talk of MnB this week. Denard Robinson became the third Michigan football star to grace the cover of NCAA Football '14, which entitles him to many royalties from the NC--Oh...wait.

Maize and Blue Notes:

Taylor Lewan is on the Outland Trophy and Maxwell Trophy Watch Lists, and he'll of course win because he's the tallest man on the field and inspires fear in the other preseason favorites.

Devin Funchess made the John Mackey preseason list, and if he wins I suggest renaming it the Funcheez Award for Excellence. Lastly, Michigan has a conference schedule for 2016-2017, they're not the worst but home games taken up by either Maryland or Rutgers is going to take some getting used to.
