And this is exactly the point. IU is getting better production with lesser talent as a result of scheme. I'd say that sacks are a very relevant stat in this case.

I'd take IU's OC right now....

IU ran for 92 yards on MSU and their line is younger than ours. We ran for -48 with older and better talent. Let that soak in for a minute...

I agree with what you said. If he is silly enough to stay the course with Borges, then he deserves to lose his dream job. There are plenty of good offensive coordinators to be had to be this terrible at offense.

If they lose the BTCG then I would imagine Capital One Bowl versus Missouri.
|3 weeks 4 days ago||As I sit here quietly||
As I sit here quietly contemplating yesterday's game (which was my son's first game at U-M), I can't help but wonder what our offense would look like under Seth Littrell (currently OC at Indiana). His starting starting offensive line has not one senior and his backups are mainly freshman. Tell me that Indiana's roster doesn't look younger than ours....
Yet his offense is rushing the ball for 5.4 YPC (U-M 3.2 YPC) and passing the ball for 14.1 YPC (U-M 15.6). For the entire season the IU offense has given up 14 sacks. We have 14 in the last two games. IU is averaging over 527 yards per game of offense while Michigan is averaging 385. I could go on but I will stop. Mostly because my Oskar Blues Ten Fidy needs replaced.

Nebraska with a division loss? Yes please.

This is getting interesting.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Where does he sit next to||
He will be remembered as a great player at Michigan and be remembered for things like 2011 Notre Dame and 2013 Indiana. His legacy in the NFL is not yet written and will be up to him to write. I am glad he is a Michigan Wolverine.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||The difference with the NFL||
The difference with the NFL is that there are quite a few players just like Gallon in every draft, every year. Of those players, the ones that make it stay for several years. It's great to be proud of your team and its players, but at some point you have to be realistic.
He's 5'8" tall and weighs less than 190lbs. His 40 time is slower than the 5 recievers ahead of him that are the same height as him in this year's draft. I will root for him to become a future NFL star, but admitting that the odds are stacked against him doesn't make me wrong, it just means I understand reality.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||Maize colored glasses||
His projected draft round is 6-7. That doesn't bode well for a player hoping for legitimate playing time.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||FEI Rankings||
A quick look at FEI rankings for Michigan and the remaining teams on the schedule shows the following -
So according to Fremeau, our most difficult opponent left on the schedule is not Ohio but Sparty. I say that because Ohio looks to rank about the same in offensive and defensive FEI as us.

It's a Big 10 team that is in the bottom half of the computer rankings. That drive happened because our defense couldn't get them off the field. Also FWIW, Northwestern (62) is now hanging around the same computer ranking as Minnesota (69).
|6 weeks 4 days ago||You are in fairly close||
You are in fairly close agreement with the computers. Massey Ratings has us projected 2-3 for November and Power Rankings has us with a projected 9-3 record as 50% most likely.
|6 weeks 4 days ago||MSU||
Massey has us as 7 point underdogs with a 29% expected win chance. Our other opponents are as follows -
Nebraska 60% (W) - 38 to 35
Northwestern 50% (W) - 35 to 34
Iowa 47% (L) - 31 to 33
Ohio State 34% (L) - 37 to 42
|6 weeks 4 days ago||We were tied at the end of||
We were tied at the end of the first quarter, and went ahead 14 to 7 just before the half. I have to say that I was pretty nervous before the second half. Probably made an overstatement on my part because of that, but it wasn't like we came out guns ablazin' from the beginning of the game either.

I find our expected wins on the remaining schedule interesting from Massey Ratings
|6 weeks 4 days ago||To be fair, we were dropped||
To be fair, we were dropped out of the polls after struggling to beat Akron, UConn, and Minny. Those games dropped us over a several week span, where we bounced around the 15-19 range. It wasn't like we went from #11 to unranked in one week.
|7 weeks 3 days ago||My formatting sucks, so I||
My formatting sucks, so I will just translate it. We should win the game versus Indiana, have close games with Northwestern and Iowa, need some luck with Michigan State and Nebraska, and will probably lose to Ohio State.

According to Massey, we match up as follows -
|7 weeks 3 days ago||According to Massey the teams||
According to Massey the teams are ranked as follows (for defense) -
Penn State (35)
Michigan State (10)
Ohio State (37)
Given this data; one could assume that with the exception of Michigan State, Michigan should be able to score pretty easily against all remaining opponents.
FWIW Michigan is ranked #24 in offense according to Massey.
