After Michigan's loss to Michigan State, Joe Milton's success and how the Wolverines will fare the rest of the season is yet to be determined.

A must-win road game at Indiana will be defining for starting quarterback Joe Milton.

Michigan suffered a humiliating 27-24 loss to Michigan State on Saturday.

It’s time to think long and hard about whether this is what the Wolverines want to be. Eight or nine wins every year, sometimes 10. Little chance of beating Ohio State. More disappointing losses than upset wins. And no chance — none — of a Big Ten title.

Ann Arbor mayor Christopher Taylor spoke to The Daily about how the county's stay-home order will impact student tailgating.

The morning after the stay-home order was put in place for University undergraduates last week, Ann Arbor mayor Christopher Taylor was asked whether he thought it would change anything with the first home football game right around the corner — a perfect storm of Halloween, Michigan-Michigan State and a worsening public health situation.

“Oh, you tell me,” he told The Daily. “I don’t know.

“... It should. Undergrads are supposed to stay at home, right?”

Michigan's defensive line had a strong start to the season.

At some point on Saturday, Jim Harbaugh came to a realization. He’d been watching his defensive line — watching senior Kwity Paye rip through Minnesota’s backup offensive tackles and rack up two sacks and three tackles for loss — and knew there was nothing the Golden Gophers could do.

To put it shortly, the move didn’t work. Mason got pushed around on the defensive line, and by about the fifth game of last season, he started to move back to offense full time. Now he’s back down between 255 and 260 pounds, and back in a role he loves.

With eight rushes for 52 yards, Joe Milton's first game as Michigan's starting quarterback highlighted his many strengths.

In his debut as a starter on Saturday night, the junior quarterback was Michigan’s leading ball carrier, with eight rushes for 52 yards. And that might just be more important to the success of Josh Gattis’s offense than anything Milton did in the air.

Zach Charbonnet scored a 70-yard touchdown on Saturday against Minnesota.

The Wolverines averaged 8.3 yards per carry and those explosive plays, they came when needed.

Michigan's season is going to be a tough one.

It’s not how we saw it happening. But the football season is here.

On Saturday night, the Michigan football team will play its first of eight regular season games at Minnesota. Whether it will get through all eight without cancellations due to COVID-19, nobody can say, but the opener seems to be a go. And even with an abbreviated season, we’re excited for kickoff.
