1. This might be shorter than usual, fairly simple game to break down.
2. This game should of been over at the half.
3. Two stupid penalties were an issue.
4. Coach Carr always talked about penalties after the whistle, those two causes a 14 point turn around.
5. Issues to fix, field goals and handling the football.
6. Two halves ball handling troubles made this a close game when it should of been a blow out.
6a. If this happens again next week Penn State will abuse Michigan!
7. Michigan ran the football 24 times on first down. Largest number of the year.
8. Running game definitely had a Coach Ed Warinner feel to it.
9. Formation, motion, and pulling linemen to gain number advantage.
10. Pure Coach Ed football.
11. Zach Charbonnet is showing a nice maturity, getting his shoulders square and up-field quicker.
12. Hassan Haskins has a better burst, but does not get his shoulders square.
13. Makes cutting tougher.
14. Shea Patterson still has accuracy issues in the red zone.
15. Good to see Donovan Peoples-Jones look good.
16. This Michigan cannot afford to play behind the chains.
17. This was the best Michigan offensive line men pulled this season.
18. All season we have talked about Michigan’s defensive tackles being issue.
19. No longer my #1 concern. Michigan is very small at linebacker and Illinois took advantage of this.
20. #14 (Josh Metellus) did not play his best game today.
21. Two missed coverage’s cost Michigan points.
22. Good news, Michigan actually spied the quarterback .
23. I don’t get why Michigan defense vacates the area between the hashes.
24. Also don’t get why they so many problems lining up properly.
25. Twice this season Michigan has had issues handling pulling linemen getting up on their linebackers.
26. Appeared Illinois was using check with me and checking when moved linebackers out of the area between the hashes.
27. Vincent Gray is improving with every rep.
28. Josh Uche, when used properly is a force.
29. Still would like to see him play in wide 9 with hand on the ground.
30. When Michigan set the edge and played horizontally instead of vertically they were outstanding.
31. D@MN, and I thought has going to be shorter (LOL).
Until next week, Go Blue!
