The Michigan Wolverines came out in the 2021 football season opener and did exactly what you should against a MAC opponent, even if Western Michigan is expected to be competitive in its conference. Anthony Broome reviews the win, which had a number of storylines despite it being a laugher.

Positives addressed include the rushing attack’s quick start to the season, an efficient display from the quarterback position and adjustments (!!!) made on the defensive side of the ball. From a negative standpoint, Ronnie Bell’s injury looms large, and there’s still a major question about Josh Gattis. Will Michigan learn a critical lesson from last year?

All of that and more, including your three-word reactions to the victory. On to Washington!
