The latest episode of the “Big House Bleachers” podcast, hosted by Michael Smeltzer and Matt Hartwell, didn’t have a Michigan football game to recap, but there was still plenty to discuss. They opened the show with a recap of Michigan basketball’s victory over Iowa, praising Tarris Reed’s breakout performance. The conversation then shifted to football, particularly the transfer portal, with discussions on potential targets for this Michigan football staff.
A significant portion of the episode was dedicated to honoring Blake Corum, celebrating his role as a model citizen and his successful toy drive, reflecting on his influence both on and off the field. The hosts speculated on Corum’s potential to earn his place onto the modern Michigan football Mount Rushmore.
The episode concluded with Matt and Mike drafting their predictions for five breakout players in the 2024 season, focusing on current team members they believe will shine next year.
