Yes, however, the big improvement last year was defense. As is the case this year. The offense continues to struggle as it did last year in the VT game. Defenses know what we are going to run and we don't have a line that is executing to allow the conservative play calling. Each loss this year can be blamed squarely on the O.

I think it is interesting that in RichRod's first year at Arizona, he just beat #9 USC... he has 3 losses and all were against ranked teams, with the exception of Oregon, they were all very close.. His offense is averaging 39 points per game with a team that was 4-8 last year, in a conference that is arguably more competitive than the Big 10.
So what does this mean?
Borges is taking a team that was 11-2 last year with most offensive players returning including two 1000+ yard rushers and has driven it into the ground.
The only reason there is discussion of Bellomy is because Michigan can't run or catch.
I'm thoroughly unimpressed with Borges and I'm less open to the "let's see how he does when he gets his recruits in there" logic
Great point about Ohio.. and this is with a work in progress QB (granted he's very good), brand new coach, and sanctions.
At this point in the season, MIchigan will most likely be 6-6 or 7-5 in the regular season.
After last year, Dave Brandon seemed like a genius for canning RichRod, but I think the jury is still out.
The defense is the only positive, but it can't do it alone or we'd have two more Ws.
