Well for starters they went 7-6 and lost 31-14 to powerhouse Kansas State in the bowl game. They also gave up 47pts to Indiana in a win, Jake Ryan tore his knee. It was Devin Gardner's first year as a starter, his best reciever was Jeremy Gallon. They had some talent in spots, but it's pretty obvious the talent this year is better than in 2013. Especially defensively.

I don't know how much if any Gattis will change this offense. I understand wanting to run the ball to keep Army's offense off the field and give your defense a breather, but like you said running the same play over and over I mean cmon. You have to at least get a little creative if all you want to do is run. It doesn't bode well for the rest of the season which is why I'm saying 7-8 wins at best.

I get what you're saying but Michigan did nothing to win that game. I guess you could say the pressure they got on the QB forced the goal line int. And OT fumble. But when you're getting talked about as a contender and you need those breaks to beat Army at home, I as a Michigan fan have no problem with Buckeye fans talking. For the most part you guys are right, now I can sit here and say well it's only week 2 in a new offense. But I don't think this offense will improve enough to have Michigan in the hunt come November because the play calling is brutal, and Patterson can't hit open receivers past 20 yards consistently.

Comment 10 Sep 2019

I wouldn't go as far as weak. They allowed 14 points in regulation despite 2 of the fumbles they lost being on their side of the 50. Army is going to get rushing yards on pretty much any team in the country. It wasn't like they were gashing Michigan for big gains, most of their drives they had to convert 4th and shorts. The defense as a whole played well enough for this game to be a few score win if Michigan had an offense.

Comment 10 Sep 2019

To me it's his unwillingness to take Michigan's offense away from being a primarily power running team. The last and only team that could play that way and win anything was Bama and even they changed their offense. Michigan's group of receivers really to me aren't going to get anymore talented, and yet we still watch every Saturday 1st down run 2nd down run. I'm not saying go 5 wide and throw 50 times a game, but they need to be throwing much more especially on early downs. You have a senior QB that you say was playing lights out all summer, and you ride a true freshman RB against Army for 2-3 yards over and over???

Comment 09 Sep 2019

I really don't think so, maybe it gets a little hotter but there's no way the AD would fire him. He also has a built in excuse for some of the faithful in that it was a new offense in its first year. That said, I did notice the crowd booing this offense louder than I can ever remember. Fans all offseason kept hearing about a modern offense, speed in space blah blah, so I don't blame them for letting Harbaugh have it. The play calling was inexcusable. I don't care if Gattis has never called a play, neither has any of the fans in that stadium yet everyone was wondering what the hell they were doing running the ball the exact same way over and over. To me that's Habaugh's stubborness. Instead of the offense fans were hoping for, attacking downfield with talented recievers, it's basically last year's offense with slightly different formations. Also Shea Patterson is the most overrated Michigan QB ever, how that kid was a 5 star I have no idea. All hope will shift to Mccaffrey, who at least has shown he can hit a guy in stride on a deep ball, Patterson sure as hell can't.

Comment 09 Sep 2019

Those types of fans can't admit the truth. They are the same ones that still talk about the "spot" in '16. Ignoring the fact that Speight's 2 ints and the offense inability to get a bigger lead, combined with the defense not closing out what they did for 3 quarters were the reasons Michigan lost. Now they want to cry about Metellus not getting the fumble recovery TD, disregarding those PIs Michigan got which most of them were weak to say the least.

Comment 09 Sep 2019

This is my problem with the whole "Well Patterson was hurt" thing that I'm already tired of hearing. Harbaugh basically says before the season that Mccaffrey is too good to just sit on the bench all season. Seeing Patterson fumble twice and miss open receivers was enough for me to want Mccaffrey in. If Patterson is really nicked up, I don't see how in their minds he was the better option in that game. At the very least, Army wouldn't have been able to collapse down on Charbonnet if Mccaffrey was playing. They knew Patterson wasn't going to run it everytime. I've never seen such abysmal play calling. Even with Patterson being terribly inaccurate they still had the most success throwing the ball. But nope, let's run this freshman into the line one more time for 2 yards. I thought the defense played pretty well, they gave up some yards but 14pts in regulation...Michigan shoulda won by a few scores in regulation, IF they were a championship caliber offense that is. They aren't even close. It doesn't take some great offensive mind to realize the most talented position on the team is WR. Yet it's basically last year's run up the gut 1st and 2nd down offense with different formations. This team will be lucky to get to 7 wins.

Comment 08 Sep 2019
Patterson isn't good bottom line. Supposedly he was playing with bruised ribs but that's a lame excuse. Michigan's receivers were getting open quite a bit, and Patterson could not hit them. That and the fact they decided to just have Charbonet run up the middle for an entire half is proof this offense is a disaster. And it's a shame because even Urban Meyer said Michigan's receivers were really good. I don't think you can write off Gattis based on 2 games. While it's easy to say he road cotails of coaches at Bama, if you look at how much he improved his teams receivers at all his stops, he game planned PSUs thumping of Michigan a few years back attacking Michigan's safeties in man coverage much like OSU did. I think this is all Jim Harbaugh. It's got his stubbornness written all over it. I've never seen a team run the same running play the first 2 downs every possession for an entire half, especially when they were getting minimal results. Gattis doesn't have full control of the offense, not even close. All the talk about being a more aggressive offense, speed in space, blah blah blah was all bullshit. It's still Jim Harbaugh's 1980 offense just different formations. And how Shea Patterson got a 5 star rating in HS is beyond me.
Comment 08 Sep 2019
If Maine strength says anything like that I'll lose all respect for him. This was an embarrassment. The defense played good enough I mean they only allowed 14pts in regulation....This offense is beyond ridiculous. Patterson looks absolutely terrible. A senior QB fumbling the ball around, missing wide open receivers. He can't throw a pass accurately if it's longer than like 20 yards. Jim Harbaugh is such a stubborn idiot, I have no doubt he was the reason Michigan's entire 2nd half offense was run Charbonet up the middle. I shouldn't have been so shocked by the play calling, as long as Harbaugh is there they can say whatever they want in the off-season about attacking and opening up the offense more. No, Harbaugh will run run run the ball no matter what.
Comment 07 Sep 2019
While I agree with you Michigan is going nowhere (9-3 is generous at this point) let's not talk about the refs. They completely blew the Metellus fumble recovery TD. But I'm not one of those Michigan fans that will blame refs when they lose. Michigan deserved to lose this game. I just wish someone in the media who was talking to the coaches would openly question this clown show of an offense.
Comment 07 Sep 2019
I agree with everything you said. Regardless of Gattis inexperience in calling plays, it doesn't take a genius to realize Michigan was having success passing the ball, even though Patterson was so awful he was missing open receivers. Supposedly he was playing with bruised ribs, but I don't want to hear any lame excuses. The media around Ann Arbor doesn't have the balls to openly question the coaches on what the hell that offense was doing today. All this BS talk about "speed in space" in the off-season when basically the play calling is just as putrid as last year, just in different formations. Michigan fans will try to throw out excuses like oh DPJ didn't play, acting like he's unstoppable. If fans can see running Charbonet up the middle the whole damn 2nd half was wasting downs(There was alot of booing) why can't Gattis see that? The answer is it's Jim Harbaugh's idiotic stubborn ass. Michigan deserved to lose this game, and to be honest I was so disgusted I was hoping they would. Just so some actual heat would come down on him.
Comment 07 Sep 2019

That's funny I've been on this site for awhile and i"ve never seen Michigan fans bragging about how great they are gonna be. I can't speak for Blu.fan.who is a regular on here, but I know like me he was extremely skeptical about this team mainly the offense. After today which featured the most mind boggling playcalling, this team will be lucky to win 7 games.

Comment 07 Sep 2019

Ok Michigan is terrible offensively right now.. Let's not.talk about ref missed calls cuz  It goes both ways..They blew Metellus fumble recovery TD. There's no doubt in my mind that Harbaugh is influencing the play calling. Yes Patterson sucks, but Michigan's drives in the 2nd half was Charbonnet up the middle over and over. Apparently Gattis couldn't see the  LB's run blitzing from up in the box. This team will be lucky to win 7 games.

Comment 07 Sep 2019

I agree, maybe it's because i 'm a Michigan fan, I see no reason for you guys to be worried about this game. I don't have a reason for OSU losing the way it did against Purdue or Iowa, maybe complacency. But the truth is those games certainly Purdue is A win 99 times out of a 100. I just don't see OSU having a stinker this early in the season, it never seems to happen I can't remember the last time OSU dropped an OOC game to an unranked opponent. OSUs defense just like Fields is only going to get better, I don't expect Cincy to get to 20 pts until maybe garbage time. 

Comment 03 Sep 2019

I didn't see many plays for Mccaffrey that weren't designed runs. The reason I like him over Patterson is he has shown a willingness to stand in the pocket instead of bailing out. His arm and deep ball accuracy are better in my opinion. Harbaugh needs to scrap the stupid 2 QBs on the field at the same time, I say Harbaugh because he came out and said both will play so I'm assuming it's his silly idea just like Peppers getting direct snaps.

Comment 03 Sep 2019

It's only 1 game. Patterson has to play better, especially on his deeper passes. I will say Vincent Gray who got alot of pub in the off season looked good at nickel corner. The interior D-line is a legit concern especially if Dwumfour is going to be out awhile. That and the lack of pressure from just the front 4 is something that needs to improve.

Comment 29 Aug 2019
I think alot of it is Harbaugh's teams have lacked a mental toughness. When things start to unravel just a little bit on the road, unless they are playing an inferior team, they can never seem to turn it around.
Comment 28 Aug 2019
Its true Mccaffrey doesn't have alot of game tape, but I what I saw against ND when he was thrown in there was a guy that can stand in the pocket instead of bailing out at the first sign of pressure. Idk, I liked how poised he was out there especially on the road in his first college game. He throws a nice deep ball much better than Patterson, and despite being 6'5 he runs faster than Shea does. As far as Milton, he has a rocket arm, but he is nowhere near as polished as Mccaffrey.
Comment 28 Aug 2019
Well Steuber one of the guys competing at Tackle just tore his ACL so he's out. Now Jon Runyan got hurt in practice, and although he should be back before big10 play, Michigan is playing guys at both tackle spots with very little experience.
