NCAA Football: Michigan Spring Game Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The Michigan Wolverines take on the Penn State Nittany Lions on Saturday, and Jim Harbaugh looked ready to get back to the film room during his Monday press conference.

Presser Recap

  • “The team will be motivated to play this week, and every week.”
  • Doesn’t have an update about Rashan Gary
  • “We practiced, we had meetings, we had weight workouts during the bye week.”
  • Said Penn State is an excellent football team in all phases
  • “Physical, aggressive football player who has great contact courage. He (Ben Mason) really craves it.” “An attacking type of personality.”
  • Said Michigan practiced last week and the momentum continues
  • “we’ll see” on Tarik Black
  • “Chase (Winovich) is a throwback in my mind, definitely in the area of attacking each day with an enthusiasm unknown to mankind, which I have great respect for.”
  • Says he indeed expects Chris Webber to be the honorary captain this week and says he’s a big fan
  • Says Penn State QB Trace McSorely poses a challenge throwing and running the ball, has the “win it” factor
  • “Karan (Higdon) deserves a lot of credit, he’s gotten a lot of tough yards” “also shown a real penchant for the big play, he can break out of a pile of players as good as anybody”
  • Said time of possession is a team product, and that the defense and special teams are contributing to that statistic as well as the offense
