• Denard accounted for four touchdowns on Monday: two running and two throwing. One of his tosses was a 78-yarder to tight end Brandon Moore. On Tuesday he ran for 68 yards on a broken play.

• Drew Henson stopped by practice on Monday and Tuesday. He has a year left, right? No on Jason Forcier—maybe a yes on Drew?

• On Monday James Rodgers caught two touchdowns including one 58-yard bomb from Tate Forcier.

• Vlad Emilien picked off Tate.

• Sheridan also hit TE Web for a 48-yard touchdown. (I hope all these long balls are a good sign for the offense and not a reflection of the defense.)

• Tuesday, Kevin Grady ran for a 48-yard gain when the offense was backed up at the two-yard line.

• Michigan worked on an overtime drill Tuesday where Shaw scored on a run and Sheridan hit Greg Matthews for another score.

• Also during the OT drill Tate hit senior WR LaTerryal Savoy on a WR screen that went 25 yards for another score.

Random Michigan Thoughts

• There has been a lot of buzz around Savoy being a starter this year. This would be somewhat of a surprise since he hasn't seen much action at all during his Wolverine career.

• Seems the offense may be ahead of the defense at this point? It seems the D is giving up a ton of big plays.

• Michigan has a ton of running backs. I hope we see some triple option this year.

• Is Denard making a "run" for the starting job? I know he is behind Tate in knowing the offense but his speed and athleticism may be hard to keep off the field.

• Teric Jones seems to be doing well in his move to CB and had a pass break up on Tuesday.
