2008 Michigan Football- MSU 35 UM 21 Game Grades


Sunday, October 26, 2008 - Phil Callihan


"We were in it but in the end we didn't make the plays."

Rich Rodriguez, Michigan Head Coach

"I feel confident that my team had my back when I guaranteed the win. I am not going to take it back. I still believe we should have won the game.."

Brandon Graham, Michigan DE

"We missed too many tackles and gave up too many big plays for touchdowns."

Terrence Taylor, Michigan DT

"It's always good to beat Michigan and to win here -- something we haven't done in so many years, back to 1990."

Javon Ringer, MSU RB


Phil's Game Grades

Offense C
Defense E
Special Teams B
Coaching C
Overall C-

The Spartans win in convincing fashion over the Wolverines...

Offense-  Another mediocre performance.  21 points isn't going to beat very many teams in division 1- especially when your defense stinks. 

Defense-  Well the defense played decently for 3 quarters and then fell apart in the 4th quarter.  We expected a lot better from the defense this season then they've shown us...  

Special Teams-  Things are improving in this area.

Coaching-  Playing so well for 3 quarters against MSU and Penn State gives us hope, but the poor 4th quarters shows us that there's a long way yet to go.

Comments-  Give the Spartans credit, they took advantage of a weak Michigan secondary and put together two 4th quarter drives to ice this one.  The season is spiralling down the drain...
