After today's drubbing, I decided to see where team 137 ranks historically.

We are currently tied at 8th all time with at least 4 games left to play.  Currently averaging 48 points per game, if we continue on that pace for the last 4 games, we end up with 624 points, which is good for 2nd most all time.  Of course, if we put up 48 against Ohio State, we might as well add a 5th game for the Big Ten championship game, which would have the potential to make this the highest scoring team in Michigan history.

It's a long shot, but would be amazing.  As it stands, this team should end up being the highest scoring team since the Yost teams.

You want to credit the coach who led michigan to their worst offensive output of the modern Era? Michigan scored 250 points in 2014 and was so inept one offense that it was laughable, but sure coach hoke is responsible for that 2011 offense being so prolific. Don't get me wrong, richrod's defenses were just as epically bad, but to credit hoke for 2011 is like sticking your head in the sand.

Did you forget about the O-line problems that resulted from RR recruiting?  Forget about Taylor Lewan's statement during a postgame presser?  Gardner deserved tons of credit for playing behind that line--he got beaten up by opposing defenses but still gave it his best each game.  BTW, consider which of the current O-line members were recruited by Hoke's staff.

It's the same thing with records, like rushing yards and whatnot. There are more games these days, so it is not as impressive when someone breaks a record from decades ago. There used to be 9 or 10 games a year plus a bowl game. Now there are up to fifteen games a season. Huge advantage these days to break records. Can't fault the current or recent players for that, but it is what it is.

How the season finishes out we will likely finish higher than any team not coach by Yost (aka over 100 years worth of football). That says a lot about Harbaugh and what his teams look like when he gets it going. Very impressive.
