On Wednesday afternoon, defensive coordinator Jesse Minter discussed how the Wolverines have designed their program to win The Game: 

Anytime you go somewhere, you assess. It started with Mike [Macdonald] and then I try to carry it on.

There was so many wins and a lot of success and a lot of really good defense. I mean, No. 1 defense in the country, top five — but is it set up to beat the team that you know you have to beat, that you’re going to play in the last game of the season every year?
