Kaliakmanis discussed having to play better fundamentally, and not being satisfied even after the win over Nebraska last Thursday.

Crooms, a transfer from Western Michigan, shared his reasons for choosing the U of M, what it was like playing Eastern Michigan in the past, and sharing the sentiment of many on the team: “We have to do better, and that’s what we’ll do Saturday.”

Rossi also spoke and talked about safety Tyler Nubin taking the next step, as well as ex-linebacker Mariano Sori-Marin joining the coaching staff as an intern.

Kickoff Saturday night is at 6:30 p.m.
