Notes and Thoughts

  • Tyrece Mills is listed as a safety on the roster, but he played linebacker on his three snaps.
  • It’s nice to see Jameial Lyons getting quality reps at defensive end. We are all hoping Chop Robinson is back for Saturday’s clash with Michigan, but more depth is building at DE.
  • What was once a fairly even four-man rotation at safety is not as even now. Jaylen Reed and Kevin Winston both have over 300 snaps for the season while Keaton Ellis and Zakee Wheatley are both under 200.
  • There was one snap with both Beau Pribula and Drew Allar on the field at the same time for a rendition of the Philly Special. Maybe it gives Michigan something to think about on film?
  • Dante Cephas emerged on Saturday as a possible WR2, but no other wide receiver besides him and KLS had more than 20 snaps.
  • On to Michigan! A win may seem unlikely, but I don’t think we know how good Michigan really is. The Wolverines’ best win is over Rutgers at home, and Penn State is the first ranked team they will face this season.
