I do think a distinction needs to be made Pawpaw shark Doo Doo Doo vintage shirt between Michigan the team and the coach or coaches while everyone wants to call Michigan “overrated”. See, Michigan as a team is not overrated. Michigan was ranked #7 to start the season, and Michigan has #7 type of talent. That means that Michigan, if you just look at their roster and who starts, should not be expected to beat Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Oklahoma or even necessarily Ohio State, and but you might expect a decent game between Michigan and OSU and a down-to-the-wire game between Michigan and Notre Dame. It should not be Ohio State 62, Michigan 39, even if OSU has more speed. Player-wise, where I think Michigan is weak is at the quarterback position and the running back position. Charbonnet has shown some good stuff at RB, but he’s also a freshman. Your top back should not be a freshman.
Michigan should have better backs Pawpaw shark Doo Doo Doo vintage shirt who are upperclassmen, and I understand that Chris Evans was removed from the team. But there are still some upperclass RBs on the roster. Of course, Michigan’s run game isn’t about anything because Michigan’s offensive line isn’t good. But why is that? The fact that, year after year, Michigan’s offensive line isn’t good and it surprises analysts tells me that it’s not because the offensive linemen just aren’t any good. They’re just not coached and developed well enough, and this issue even pre-dates Harbaugh. With all the top 10 recruiting classes, you can’t tell me Michigan is constantly bombing when it comes to offensive linemen. So, on offense, the legitimate weakness is QB in terms of just not being able to get it done against legitimate top 15 teams.
