Submitted by Ecky Pting on October 9th, 2017 at 11:49 AM

The updated ESPN team efficiency ratings have been posted and the Wolverines drop eleven spots from #22 to #33 overall based on its appearance in This Week in Schadenfreude. Maybe you're featured there?

Michigan OL, 2017

The U-M splits are offense, #105 (down from #97); defense, #4 (same as last week); and special teams, #26 (up from #35).

Of U-M's 2017 opponents, Ohio State maintains the mantel of most efficient in the B1G at  #4 (up from #7), one ahead of next-best Penn State at #5 (up from #10). Meanwhile Wisconsin inched up to #14 from #15. Indiana, at #22 (up from #26)  moves ahead Michigan. Quite disgustingly, Sparty, at #32 (up from #53), also moved ahead of Michigan.

Overall, Michigan dropped behind two of its opponents this week. So, M remains rated lower than five of its opponents for this season. Two are in the top ten (same as last week), 5 are in the upper quartile of the ratings (same as last week); 9 are in the upper half (same as last week); and two are in the lowest quartile (Cincinnati and LOLRutgerz dropped just below the threshhold).

Some of the other less-than-flattering tidbits about the offense from TeamRankings:

Points Per Game - 27.2 - #69 in Division I

Yards Per Game - 385.8 - #75 in Division I

Yards Per Play - 5.2 - #90 in Division I

3rd Down Conv. - 34.62% - #90 in Division I

There's more, and they don't break it out by conference so there's a lot of differences of tenths of a yard or so in these rankings, but some of the current stats make me look at the schedule and say, "Yeeeeesh..."
