Congratulations to crp12qb for winning a $20 gift card to The M Den this week. His differential of 157 was the lowest so far this season. He was just three off of Denard’s total yards and three off of UMass’ passing yards. Additionally, he was the second-closest to Russell Bellomy and Devin Gardner’s combined passing yards, which ended up being somewhat of a trick question since Gardner didn’t see a snap at QB and Bellomy did but didn’t record a passing yard. One contestant, Mfan1974 “passed” that test, correctly predicting zero yards.
Week 1′s winner, HTTV133 was the closest on Michigan’s total yards, just 11 away, while Mfan1974 was the closest to Mike Cox’s rushing total, just three off.
We’re still looking for our first person to correctly predict the game score, although Mfan1974 was pretty darn close this week, predicting 66-10 (three high on Michigan and three low on UMass). Altogether, everyone picked Michigan (duh) by a combined score of 51-10. No one got Michigan’s 63 point total correct, while only kfarmer16 got UMass’ 13 right.
The Week 3 standings as well as the overall standings will be posted by tonight and you can find them on the right sidebar.
This week should provide a much tougher challenge on the field, but maybe a little bit easier to predict since it certainly won’t be a blowout. Good luck!
BEST OF MAXIM

Michigan junior wide receiver Devin Gardner is off to a nice start at the receiver position. As the match up with Notre Dame approaches, Gardner talks about his early season success, his mindset at the wide receiver position, and the challenges that the Irish will present.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- For most offensive lineman, the idea of scoring a touchdown would fill them with joy.
For Taylor Lewan, recovering a fumble in the end zone during Saturday's 63-13 rout of Massachusetts seems more like a burden that he's had to endure.
Speaking at Monday's press conference, Lewan quickly downplayed any expectations that he would brag about his first...
Michigan tackle Taylor Lewan says it's time for the team's offensive line to play mean, angry and a little nasty.
The 18th-ranked Wolverines probably won't face a defensive front seven as talented it did against top-ranked Alabama the rest of the season.
No. 11 Notre Dame, though, might come close Saturday night with its stout defensive line and swarming linebackers...
We got the W.
It was a win. It was a 50-point win. It was a "cover the largest spread in Michigan football history" win. It was an offensive onslaught that was both expected and deserved. Michigan needed a game like this. I think every team needs a game like this. You just sort of forget about what happened two weeks ago, and just stare at...

Two Michigan Stars Match Up In The 88 Yard Dash
Michigan junior offensive tackle Taylor Lewan believes the offensive line progressed against Umass Saturday. With Notre Dame right around the corner, Lewan says they’ll need to be much better to beat the Irish.
UMass kicked off to begin the game, and it sailed out of bounds. The rest of the afternoon wasn’t much better for the Minutemen as Michigan cruised to a 63-13 victory. Michigan had nine touchdowns scored by eight different players and was 6-for-6 inside the red zone. Denard Robinson accounted for almost 400 total yards and four total touchdowns, and Fitz Toussaint looked like his...
The Michigan basketball staff began this week with a full court recruiting press in the state of Indiana. Michigan had three coaches, including John Beilein, watching workouts in the Hoosier state on Monday afternoon. Per Kyle Neddenriep, all three coaches were on hand to watch 2014 offeree Trevon Bluiett in Indianapolis. Iowa also had two coaches watching Bluiett while Louisville...
