In this episode, we spend the bulk of it discussing how potential changes to NIL compensation impacts Michigan, and preview what to expect in the weeks and months ahead. We also take an early preview of the Wolverines' running game, and discuss if it's the strength of Michigan's team right now.
We begin by looking at NIL compensation, which allows players to profit off of their own brand. We discuss the NCAA's (somewhat reluctant) decision to allow players to make money in this way, and how it impacts the Wolverines. We look at the current and future impact it has had on the recruiting trail, how Michigan must capitalize, and how it could impact the Wolverines' recruiting expectations.
We then look at the changes' impacts on current players. We discuss concerns from a coach's standpoint, as well as how players are going to have to navigate this added wrinkle to the college experience. We also take a look at what kind of athletes will benefit the most from these rules, and how it could change our jobs.
In the second half of the episode, we discuss Michigan's running back and offensive line position groups, and assess if this is the strength of the Wolverines' roster. We look at how Michigan's experienced, big and talented offensive line can take a step forward in 2021, and asses how the running back room shakes out after a season with several departures and arrivals. We discuss where each position group still has to develop, but also look at potential for the two areas of Michigan's offense.
