Every Thursday, Tom, Mike and Chantel will discuss three issues in and around Michigan sports. This week, they tackle Michigan's fall camp, players turned coaches and the Olympics.

1. Michigan has started fall camp, what were you most surprised to hear coming out of the first few days of camp?

Michael Rothstein: Nothing, per se, surprised me -- well, save for Will Campbell's unintentional and completely harmless slip of the tongue during his interview Monday -- but I thought it was interesting when Brady Hoke said Jake Ryan would be in the mix to back up Brennen Beyer for however long Frank Clark is not with the team due to suspension. Ryan is one of Michigan's most promising defenders and is slated to be a starting linebacker, so it tells me they have a lot of faith in either his direct backup, Cam Gordon, or one of the freshmen to hold down that position if Ryan needed to drop down to rush end.
