Michigan dealing with injury to WR Tarik Black, OL Mason Cole is team foundation
Michigan football is always the main topic in Breakfast of Victors, Land of 10’s daily Wolverines notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Wolverines sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Michigan football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Tarik Black out indefinitely
Michigan had no concerns about the health of its players until the fourth quarter against Air Force. First, senior running back Ty Isaac left the game with what BTN reported as an ab injury. Then freshman wide receiver Tarik Black suffered what coach Jim Harbaugh described as a “crack in his foot” and left the field on a cart after the 29-13 win for the Wolverines.
Speaking from experience
Injuries are a part of the game. Fifth-year senior linebacker Mike McCray knows that as well as any player on the Michigan roster.

Michigan’s offensive line foundation
Mason Cole has been a constant in the starting lineup for four seasons, whether he has been playing left tackle or center.
Vying for Texas talent
Safety Brian Williams of Dallas Bishop Dunne High School is considered a 5-star prospect for the Class of 2019. Land of 10/Ohio State recruiting writer Jeremy Birmingham writes how the Buckeyes and Michigan are putting a lot of effort to recruit Williams.
No one problem in red zone
Those problems the Michigan offense is having in the red zone? Nick Baumgardner of the Free Press says they’re caused by a combination of inexperience and play-calling.
