Air force all over again. We praise Mattison for adjustments, but again, no adjustments.
On top of that we come out vanilla on offense.
Where is the urgency?
That would be the safe assumption. Then again he did get us pretty good last year, Denard just got them better.
Also NW has been completely predictable the entire game, and we can't stop it. It's been one of the most frustrating games I've watched.
If there is ever a game that is decided based on the play of JT....we are toast. Sorry but I've never been impressed with his play.
He didn't have the pitch. Nobody had the pitch. It was 3rd and long and they blitzed him to pressure Colter.
Ugh 5 yard pass on 2nd and 21.
P.I. has been our best offense.
Man Borges has got to be the most stubborn coordinator i have ever seen. He insists on running a play until it works. Got lucky with the pass interference there on another half rollout that hasn't worked yet today.
Roundtree needs to help dg out
Tough play Gallon! Great grab.
Like gallon just did
Devin Gardner has been maddening this game. He'll make plays like that, but he's still not completing 50% of his passes.
NW has always given us trouble, they are a smart team and they hate us because we don't respect them (see the reaction when a staff writer said NW could move the ball on us). I sometimes feel on our staff we have too many lions, not enough foxes. It's the opposite with NW.
What they are doing isn't rocket science, but they count on us failing to stop a running QB with the option in play, with the occasional wrinkle thrown in and they are entirely right. This D is good when it faces a conventional opponent where high intensity, swarm to the ball type football with different pressure packages does major damage. But there are ways for an offense to subvert that sort of D, through misdirection, through the option, through the QB run and we really aren't very good at reacting to that.
Yes TD Fitz.

Fitz! FInally making a play!
Fitz! It's nice to see somebody make a play!
Right back in it
That was so huge. An empty possession there might have done it for us, with how they are moving the ball on O.
Time to step up D and Mattison!
Big Will making plays.
Big Will 2 plays in a row. Now come on D make a play on 3rd down.
Michigan is just bad against the Option... too slow.
