Noah Furbush is not like most football players, or most people for that matter. The Michigan linebacker earned his degree in aerospace engineering and is now working towards a master’s in space engineering (a natural progression, I suppose, but still darn impressive). Furbush wants to use his education and his love of flying to become a military pilot.

I will be part of a weekly podcast with MLive in which we talk all things University of Michigan sports. In the first episode, we broke down football’s Signing Day and, towards the end of the conversation, discussed the basketball team.
Saturday will be just the fourth night game in Michigan Stadium history. A school like Penn State has no problem hosting games under the lights. Why does the University Michigan—its administration, head coach, and many of its fans—reject the idea? What do players think? I sought answers in an in-depth story for Scout.
We’re talking upsets (TCU, NC State), thrilling finishes (Penn State), and incredible individual performances (Saquon Barkley) from Saturday while looking ahead to this weekend. Get the scoop, get the score.
With Michigan’s passing offense struggling and the team’s reliance on freshmen receivers, I looked at what it takes to play the position at the college level and how freshmen have performed in the past.
