MGoPodcast 12.1: Un Grain de Sel

September 14, 2020

It looks like there will be football this fall, which means there will be hockey this fall, which is all I really care about.

We can do this because people support us. You should support them! The show is presented by UGP & The Bo Store, and if it wasn’t for Rishi and Ryan we’d be furloughed SBNation writers right now. Proceeds from the "Those Who Stay Home" collection are going to support our front line workers at Michigan Medicine. Our associate sponsors are also key to all of this: HomeSure Lending, Ann Arbor Elder Law, the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, Michigan Law Grad, Human Element, The Phil Klein Insurance Group, and FuegoBox

Seth saves his real hot take for the analysis. Recruiting cycle blown up by the roster issue with last year's class being this year's class now. Cost us Drew Kendall most likely, might cost us a linebacker, and a Markus Allen. Frankie Collins and potential for a 5-star who sticks around four years?
