The Wolverines were failing to score touchdowns in the red zone, struggling to find a groove in the passing game and searching for consistency on the ground before losing 14-10 at home to the Spartans.
Heck, I'm not even writing them off from emerging from the Big Ten East gauntlet this year and it's wide open between Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan, and Michigan State. "I've been impressed in terms of how we've handled the problems, how we found solutions and how hard we've played".
John O'Korn certainly shouldn't receive all the blame for Michigan's five-turnover performance in last week's loss to Michigan State. Ty Isaac and Sean McKeon fumbled. It's the Spartans' eighth win in 10 games against the Wolverines, and it's their second in three tries against Jim Harbaugh.
When the skies opened up, MI took to the air. Despite the recent slump, the Wolverines are 69-36-5 in the series.
Speight was hurt in the first quarter of last month's victory at Purdue.
Minnesota (15-2, 4-2 Big Ten), which trailed in every set, hit.354 while the Wolverines (12-6, 2-4) hit.202.
That's why they came to MI, for the rich winning culture.
"I think they're unselfish", Dantonio said of his backs. However, there was no clear-cut pattern so that suggests the jury is still out on Michigan State.
"That's why we come here, for an atmosphere like that", Bachie said. Saturday is of the utmost importance, and not just because it's the next time MI takes the field.
Behind O'Korn on the depth chart are redshirt freshman Brandon Peters and true freshman Dylan McCaffrey. Kempt averaged 14.3 yards per attempt, and four Iowa State wideouts averaged at least 20 yards per catch.
Stanford knocked Utah from the ranks of the unbeaten, leaving only Washington and Washington State, who of course play each other at the end of the regular season. QB Conor Rhoda connected on 11 of 25 passes for 101 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception in the game while Shannon Brooks led the rushing with 18 carries for 116 yards.
Hes a great quarterback, receiver Grant Perry said. That led to Michigan athletic director Warde Manuel and Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis teaming up to ask fans to behave.
"You don't do it by talking about it", he said, "you do it by changing the way you prepare". "We definitely don't like that comment".
Hart's comments are still used as motivation. Oh, and maybe you've seen this, but Brady Hoke was also 24-7 at MI to start, so oh my gosh he's so overrated he's Brady Hoke.
About 20 MI players formed a circle and locked their arms together during the national anthem. As bad of a game as this was, I still have to give a game ball out. "There was one point where there was a torrential downpour, but there's no excuses". He got started early against the Wolverines, stripping the ball from running back Ty Isaac in the first quarter. He was on the sideline in uniform, but didn't have his helmet on.
