What to Know for Week 6

Quick notes on this really wet and ugly Friday. My apologies as this has been a particularly busy week...so allow me to dump all of the news on you in one post.

• Tomorrow's game versus Iowa will air live at 8PM EST on ABC. This will be Michigan's 2nd nationally televised game of the season. Week 2 against ND was the first. The TV audience should be huge, but Michigan-Iowa is competing up against Florida-LSU which will air at the same time on CBS.

• Weather forecasts are saying there might be a chance of rain in the afternoon, but by gametime, things should be dry. But it's going to be chilly. Forecast for 8PM is looking like partly cloudy and around 40 degrees. Winds around 5-10 mph. Via accuweather.com.

• Brandon Minor practiced fully this week and should be a go for tomorrow night.

• Carlos Brown had limited (or none) reps due to a concussion suffered in practice this week. He was not on the injury report, so I expect him to be in uniform, although Minor and Shaw will probably see the bulk of the carries as Michigan really tries to establish a ground game.

• David Molk is still on the injury list this week. Word is he is progressing well with his broken foot, and should see his way back onto the field hopefully for Penn State two weeks from now. For now, David Moosman is still filling in at center.

• The revolving door of cornerbacks opposite Donovan Warren seems to be in full motion as now Troy Woolfolk is getting some practice time at his old position at the corner. Taking Troy's spot at safety is Mike Williams and former walk-on turned defensive stud Jordan Kovacs.

• And finally, for now...in case you missed the broadcast of Inside Michigan Football, the wonder that is Hulu has you covered. You can also catch many other Big Ten coaches shows via the popular video streaming site.
