Ex-Wolverine Updates

Sam McGuffie had 109 receiving yards, including this 50-yard touchdown reception.
Former Michigan QB commit Shavodrick Beaver: Beaver had 4 carries for 14 yards and was 2/2 passing for Midwestern State against Texas A&M-Commerce a few weeks ago, but he hasn't played in the Mustangs' last couple games.

Former Michigan S Vladimir Emilien: Emilien had 6 tackles in Toledo's 38-28 victory over Coastal Carolina.

Former Michigan DT commit DeQuinta Jones: Jones had 6 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, and 1 pass breakup, but Arkansas lost to Rutgers by a score of 35-26.

Former Michigan RB Sam McGuffie: Rice lost to Marshall by a score of 54-51 in overtime, but McGuffie had 4 receptions for 109 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Former Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez: Rodriguez suffered his first loss at Arizona, a 49-0 beatdown at the hands of Oregon.  Arizona's defense did a decent job of stopping the Ducks' rushing attack, holding them to 4.3 yards/attempt.  But the Wildcats had 5 turnovers, including 2 interceptions returned for touchdowns.

Former Michigan WR Je'Ron Stokes: Stokes had 1 catch for 0 yards in Bowling Green's 37-0 loss to Virginia Tech.


  1. A tip for everyone: If you haven't seen the "Rich Rod sideline frown video" on YouTube (a clip of his reaction to one of Saturday night's interception), well, highly recommended.

  2. Oregon's D looked really improved from years past. Talent is there for a title this year.

    Arizona actually did much better than the final score indicated. They moved the ball but couldn't convert in the red zone -- sound familiar? To Rodriguez's credit he seemed to do a lot more passing than running, so maybe he learned something from his Threat experience. They kept Oregon's offense in check too for most of the game (it was 13-0 midway through the 3rd), before getting bombed late (as teams often do against the Ducks). Casteel should know how to defend a spread O, and it looked like he did.

    Things look good for both programs, IMO.

  3. Tony Drake is putting up numbers for Houston

    1. Drake doesn't play for Houston. Dewayne Peace does.
