Phil’s Game Grades
The Ryan Mallett for Heisman campaign gets derailed by the Wildcats…
Offense- FR QB Ryan Mallett looked human in this one. It looked like he had first road game jitters- he’ll bounce back. Chad Henne returned to rally the team to victory. The offense sputtered for most the game but finally got in gear late in the 4th quarter.
Defense- The defense looked completely unprepared during the first quarter. They seemed to buckle down for the second half but the inconsistency remains difficult to understand.
Special Teams- They continue to give too many return yards…Gonna be a problem against better teams if things don’t get shored up.
Coaching- A lackluster performance all around. At this rate the Wolverines can’t take any opponent for granted.
