    Looks like Don & Jimmy boy are gazing across the thread at Kate Verlander. Now I know why they can’t focus on coaching the team.

    Remember she’s a married woman now AND a mother.

    I like Milton’s potential. Interested to see what the next few seasons hold for him.

    Anybody buying this line of thinking? Can the O turn a corner like 2016 PSU did after some transition bumps? For reference PSU’s offense finished 23rd in the country and put up over 40 points a game after their first 5 games.

      I wish the kid in me would allow me to be hopeful. Unfortunately, the frustrated fella screams, “hell no”

      I think the offense can improve, but I don’t think it will be that drastic.

      I’m not buying this at all. PSU’ offense that year in those 5 games was relatively consistent in terms of scoring ave/game and their early season problems were more on the defense side as they had half their defense out and started walk on linebackers against Michigan, if I recall. Once their defense got healthy to complement the offense they were a helluva good team.
      This seasons Michigan offense is not consistent on anything except not being able to score and 52 of that 28pnt/game ave is against Rutgers – almost a 2 game average for that one game alone.

      Against the 3 teams with a pulse that Mich has played, ’19 Michigan offense has accounted for a pathetic regulation 24 non garbage time points – 8 points/game and essentially less than a field goal – 2.4 points/qwarter: 24 points in 10 qwarters.
      AND they’ve turn the ball over 11 times, I think but they’ve also gotten fortunate by somehow managing to recover 5 additional fumbles if I recall correctly.

      This offense is the WORST on the 2 most important parts of Offense:
      They can’t score and they can’t hang on to the ball and Michigan has yet to face the meat of the schedule.

      Many were saying, “we’ll find out agaisnt Army”;
      Then it was; “we’ll find out agaisnt Wisconsin”;
      then it was, “We’ll find out against Iowa”;
      And now many are saying “we’ll find out now that Michigan is going into that 2nd half………..
      IDK how many more games and how many more seasons we need to find out that Harbaugh simply is incapable of Building a Championship caliber Team and now going on 9 FBS seasons I don’t believe he’s even capable of being a championship head coach.

      I’m also skeptical. The inconsistency is a good point and I don’t think we’ve seen a defense anywhere close to Michigan’s 2016 D. All due respect to Wisconsin and Iowa I don’t think they’re on that level.

      I do think it’s some reason to keep hopeful and not give up on the whole season like a certain prominent blogger.

      An even better example to try & remain hopeful is to reference Bo’s first team at Michigan in ’69. That team was coming off an absolute shellacking the year before in Columbus – that ’68 team was ranked in the top 5, I believe and OSU just slaughtered them similar to last years team in Columbus.

      Bo was new to Michigan and after his first 5 games, Don Canham, the AD, had wondered what the hell he’d done by hiring Bo as Michigan got their ass handed to them in The Big House by 9th ranked Missouri 40-17 (game 3 like Wisky) and then got beat in game 5 by MSU 23-12. In between Michigan beat a ranked Purdue (similar to iowa) team but 3-2 after a home loss asswhopin and losing to rival MSU wasn’t what peeps had signed up for.

      Then the new coach got the Wolverines to gel and they went on to win the B10 by beating the No1 ranked Buckeyes in 1 of the great upsets in college history……
      Now there’s a lot of things different between then & now but IF one wants to grab ahold of ‘hope’ that would be my place to start not comparisons to the ’16 PSU team.
