As you may have heard, Michigan's offense has been rather pedestrian through the first half of the season. Al Borges is doing his best Jim Bollman impression, and Saturday's lost to Penn State may have been his Fifth Symphony.
I'll let MGBLOG set the scene (emphasis mine to draw attention to the best line in the article):
I don't think I'm exaggerating [that this is the dumbest play in the history of football]. It's second and eight after one of Michigan's most successful RB runs of the night. Michigan trails 21-10 with six minutes left in the second quarter. They put some dudes on the field and move them around. When we come back from Matt Millen saying something about something, this process has already started.
Again, MGOBLOG has the breakdown, and it's about as humorous as stodgy, stewing Michigan Men can be. (Kyle Kalis, #67, gets owned pretty hard, which makes this all the better.)
Long. Live. Al. Borges.
