Blake Corum says he 'feels great' after heavy workload in recent games
Blake Corum has carried Michigan to a 2-0 start in Big Ten play.
In U-M’s first 3 games against out-of-conference opponents, Corum carried the ball 34 times. The last 2 weeks, against B1G foes, Corum has been asked to tote the rock.
Corum carried the ball 30 times for 243 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Week 4 win over Maryland. Last time out against Iowa, Corum rushed 29 times for 133 yards and a TD.
At a Tuesday media availability, Corum told reporters he’s feeling fine.

Among B1G ball carriers, Chase Brown leads in attempts with an average of 24 per game. Corum is currently at 18.8 per game on the year because of the first 3 games.
Michigan’s matchup with Indiana in Week 6 presents Jim Harbaugh’s staff an opportunity to prevent wear and tear on Corum. Indiana enters Saturday last in the Big Ten in passing yards allowed per game (277.8) and No. 13 in opposing completion percentage (63.7).
