Michigan football is always the main topic in Breakfast of Victors, Land of 10’s daily Wolverines notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Wolverines sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Michigan football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Speaking from experience
Jim Harbaugh knows the struggles of playing quarterback and how the position is as much a mental challenge as it is physical. That gave him a little better appreciation for how Wilton Speight responded to being pulled in the second quarter of the 33-17 win against Florida on Saturday.
Nolan Ulizio wins RT job
Not many people were putting Nolan Ulizio into the right tackle conversation before preseason camp began. That’s nothing new for the redshirt sophomore from West Chester, Ohio, who got a late offer from Michigan after Harbaugh was hired in December, 2014. People can now start talking about Ulizio.
Dialing up confusion
Michigan defensive coordinator Don Brown used a variety of alignments and schemes to throw confusion at Florida redshirt freshman quarterback Feleipe Franks. It worked to perfection against the first-time starter, writes Nick Baumgardner of the Free Press.
Land of 10 takes a closer look at the win against Florida, including a key moment you probably didn’t think much about when it happened.
Player of the week
Make two 50-yard field goals in one game, something no other kicker in Michigan history has accomplished, and you get honored. That’s what happened to redshirt freshman Quinn Nordin.
Class of 2018 Texas twin commits
If you didn’t catch this read on Sunday, here’s the story of twins Ge’mon and German Green of DeSoto, Texas. The defensive backs, who are part of Michigan’s 2018 class of commits, got their high school season off to a winning start Friday night, then got to watch the Wolverines open their season with a win in nearby Arlington.
Larry Prout Jr., and 100 videos
We’ve told you previously the story of Michigan fan Larry Prout Jr. He’s set to undergo the 100th surgery of his life on Tuesday. He got 100 special messages from his Michigan teammates on Monday.
