We're only beating Air Force by 4, and it could be one if they had made the field goal.  Maybe your expectations have been sufficiently lowered during the Rich Rod fiasco, but I expect Michigan teams to actually play well against a service academy.  This is Michigan, not some bottom dweller.  We shouldn't be settling for a narrow win against a bunch of high school sized players.  Especially after last week's embarassment.

...but I think this shows that's it's not X's and O's, but rather Jimmys and Joes.

We just don't have the talent like we did last year. There isn't a whole lot our coaches can do.

Thankfully, we are getting a crop of studs coming in. Hoke may not be the greatest coach, but he can bring in the talent, and this is worth his weight in gold (and thankfully, he is not a small person)

Our pass coverage has been spot on today, even more so when you recognize what a strong passing team Air Force is.  And we're outgaining them by a mile.  And our defensive line is manhandling their offensive line, even though those guys they have on the line are gigantic.
