TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Michigan redshirt senior DL Ryan Glasgow could be a Draft riser late in the process.

Glasgow recorded 1.5 TFL and a huge sack in last Saturday's loss to Ohio State. "What stood out was ... the way Glasgow attracted the attention of multiple Buckeye blockers on the inside, holding the point and occupying the gaps as well as making plays during important moments of the game," Pauline wrote. "Last year Glasgow’s brother made a mad dash up draft boards during Shrine week and the Senior Bowl but Ryan already has a head start." Glasgow was a 2015 All-Big Ten honorable mention.

Michigan redshirt sophomore LB/DB Jabrill Peppers was named Big Ten defensive player of the year, linebacker of the year and return specialist of the year.

We're guessing these honors do little to ease the sting of losing to Ohio State in double-overtime on Saturday, but that loss shouldn't overshadow the phenomenal all-around work put forth by Peppers this season. On the defensive side of the ball, the 6-foot-1, 202-pound redshirt sophomore has recorded 66 tackles (13.0 for loss), three sacks and an interception, while as a returner, he has notched 21 punt returns for 310 yards and a touchdown. Peppers also turned 27 carries into 167 yards (6.2 YPC) and three touchdowns.

Michigan redshirt sophomore LB/DB Jabrill Peppers' mother is thoroughly vetting NFL agents ahead of the declaration period.

Per Neil Stratton, Peppers' mother is requiring agents to complete 41-question document on experience, clients, and NFL contacts, according to Neil Stratton. Peppers is widely viewed as a premier draft prospect, but the process is long. His athletic testing and position projection are extremely important. Family and players are allowed to interview agents without having to decide on their draft decision.

The Big Ten reprimanded Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh for his weekend officiating rant and issued a $10,000 institutional fine to the university.

Harbaugh was all diatribe-y following Saturday's double-overtime loss to Ohio State, saying that he was "bitterly disappointed" in the officiating and lambasted an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty levied against him after he went crazy on the sideline following a perceived botched call in the second half. In a statement, the Big Ten said, "Coaches are teachers as well, and there is an expectation that they set the example for students and others in the area of sportsmanship." Michigan still has a very long outside shot at the Playoff, but realistically, their goose was cooked on Saturday.

ESPN's Mel Kiper and Todd McShay both have Michigan senior DE/OLB Taco Charlton as at least a Day 2 pick.

For his part, Kiper thinks Charlton is in the Rd. 1 mix. If he wasn't before, he is now. The 6-foot-6, 270-pounder had 2.5 sacks and nine tackles against Ohio State on Saturday, running his season total up to 8.5 sacks. "Charlton plays with good leverage for his height, has active hands and takes great angles when rushing quarterbacks," Kiper said. "He showed Saturday that he can play on his feet, which means he could fit in a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme." We also believe Charlton to be a good fit in either a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme. "He has been Michigan's best pass-rusher for the past two seasons and brings some serious upside to the table as an NFL prospect," McShay wrote. "I have Charlton as a Day 2 pick right now."

Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh lambasted the officiating from Saturday's double-overtime loss to Ohio State.

Harbaugh rattled off a slew of supposed officiating sleights after the game and said multiple times that he was "bitterly disappointed" in the work done by the refs in the contest. Not only did Harbaugh see (real or imagined) officiating gaffes all over the field, he was slapped with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the third quarter, one which led to an Ohio State touchdown. Harbaugh thought that to be silliness, too, saying, "They could have been watching the game [rather than focusing on] that you throw a hat, you throw your script toward your sideline." We would be surprised if a fine of some variety does not come of this. Beyond that, it just isn't a good look for Michigan or Harbaugh to levy this deluge of complaints after what was -- even accounting for officiating mistakes -- a hard-fought, very evenly played game by both parties. Michigan finished with 310 yards of total offense, Ohio State 330.

Michigan redshirt sophomore OLB/DB Jabrill Peppers had his first career interception in Saturday's 30-27 double-overtime loss to Ohio State.

The Wolverines pressured J.T. Barrett into throwing high, a ball that was deflected up into the air by Curtis Samuel and into Peppers' arms. That Peppers hadn't made an interception heading into today is about the only nitpick you could have made about his game. As usual, he had a small role in the offense today (four carries for four yards), as well as kick returning (one for 44 yards) and punt returning (one for five). Peppers is a candidate for eight national awards.

Michigan redshirt sophomore QB Wilton Speight (collarbone) went 23-of-36 for 219 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 30-27 double-overtime loss to Ohio State.

Speight was able to make it through the entire instant classic after a quick recovery from a collarbone injury. He wasn't perfect, however, turning the ball over three times, including a head-scratching pick-six to Malik Hooker up 3-0 with about four minutes left in the second quarter. The Wolverines, who head into bowl season 10-2, have not won at Ohio State in 5,852 days.
Nov 26 - 4:15 PM

Michigan redshirt sophomore QB Wilton Speight (collarbone) started Saturday's game against Ohio State.

It was widely reported that Speight had broken his collarbone and would miss the season. That's apparently not the case. Jabrill Peppers will be used plenty as a wildcat quarterback today, while we could also see backup QB John O'Korn at some point.
Nov 26 - 12:19 PM

Michigan redshirt sophomore QB Wilton Speight returned to practice on Tuesday ahead of the upcoming game against Ohio State.

Speight is dealing with an undisclosed injury to his non-throwing shoulder. "He seemed fine," receiver Amara Darboh said. Speight did not play against Indiana and Houston transfer John O'Korn filled in versus the Hoosiers. Obviously Michigan versus Ohio State has College Football Playoff implications.

Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh once again labeled redshirt sophomore QB Wilton Speight (shoulder) day-to-day.

"He's been better every day. That's from my eye. He's gotten better every day. Now, again, to clarify: I'm not a doctor. I don't have a medical degree. I never took medical classes," Harbaugh said. Despite early reports that Speight had sustained a broken collarbone against Iowa two weekends ago, the quarterback managed to participate in pregame warmups prior to Saturday's game against Indiana. John O'Korn would ultimately start that contest. He would start once more this coming weekend should Speight be unable to physically foot the bill. Michigan and Ohio State will commence to tango at 12:00 EST on Saturday.

In the latest release of the Associated Press Top 25, Ohio State and Michigan were ranked Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

No movement for Ohio State, here, in advance of Saturday's apocalyptic showdown, but Michigan earned a little boost from No. 4 to No. 3. That comes courtesy of the Louisville Cardinals, who plummeted all the way from No. 3 to No. 11 with their Thursday night ghosting against Houston. Louisville's fall actually resulted for one-spot jumps by all of Michigan, Clemson, Wisconsin, Washington, Oklahoma and Penn State. If you're getting a distinctly Big Ten vibe from all of this, there's a reason for that. This is the first time in 56 years that the conference has placed three teams (Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin) in the top five of the AP poll.
Nov 21 - 12:34 PM

Michigan HC Jim Harbaugh termed redshirt sophomore QB Wilton Speight (shoulder) to be day-to-day.

"He's day-to-day. We'll see [about practice]. It's day-to-day," said Harbaugh. Speight participated in pregame warmups prior to Saturday's game against Indiana before ceding the actual game-stage to John O'Korn. There was talk last week that Speight had suffered a broken collarbone in a November 12 loss to Iowa, but Harbaugh is either setting an increasingly elaborate smokescreen or the injury is not as severe as was initially reported. As if it needs to be said -- don't worry, you'll see the commercials for it -- Michigan plays Ohio State next Saturday.

Michigan redshirt junior QB John O'Korn completed 7-of-16 passes for 59 yards in Saturday's 20-10 win over Indiana.

Conditions -- snowy, windy, cold, first start of season -- weren't great for O'Korn, here. Regardless, this wasn't a particularly encouraging performance coming just one week ahead of The Game. Regular starter Wilton Speight (shoulder) did take part in pregame warmups, a nice sign that he might be able to at least try to give it a go next weekend.
Nov 19 - 7:04 PM

Michigan senior RB De'Veon Smith turned in his best game of the season in Saturday's 20-10 win over Indiana, rushing for 158 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries.

Smith has taken a backseat in Michigan's loaded backfield at times this season, but with the Wolverines missing starting QB Wilton Speight (shoulder) and desperately needing to eek out a win to realistically remain a top tier Playoff contender, the senior played like big man on snowy campus. The 5-foot-11, 228-pounder rushed for a pair of touchdowns in the third quarter, hitting the end zone from 34 and 39 yards out. Those were Michigan's only touchdowns on this cold afternoon. The stage is now set for a battle of 10-1 squads when Michigan takes to the road for next Saturday's showdown with Ohio State.
