In 2013, the return game was a big issue for the Wolverines. On average, Michigan was 73.6 yards from the goal line after kick returns (80th nationally). With the Wolverines averaging 5.4 yards per play, that means that it would take 14 plays to reach to the end zone if they met that average. However, the Wolverines only had 22 drives this season (of their 167) that were at least 10 plays. That means most drives ended in Michigan not reaching the goal line. Of Michigan’s 167 drives last season, only 40 gained for 60 yards or more, and only 11 gained 80 yards or more.
 
From an efficiency standpoint, there’s a general stat in football that every offense wants -- to have more drives that end in a touchdown than drives that end without a touchdown or first down. Michigan didn’t achieve that last season. Of their 167 drives, 54 ended without a first down/touchdown and 48 ended in a touchdown. By comparison, Florida State, which had 176 drives, had 84 of its drives end in a touchdown and only 38 end without a first down/touchdown. Obviously not all of these drives begin after a kickoff return, but improvement certainly can be made in the return game.

 
WOW...that's brutal.  
 
Go Blue!!


Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

Really shows our HORRID our offensive efficiency was last year 
 
Hopefully, "The Nuss" is the remedy needed to improve on that stat in 2014...but Dan Ferrigno, special teams coach, also needs to be held accountable!

Has Al Bore-@ss found another job yet? No? What a surprise.

He isn't qualified to set pins in a bowling alley.

Al has crawled back into the black hole that Hoke rescued him from. Still can't believe we gave that guy a raise and made him one of the highest paid coordinators

Even Greg Robinson got a job again.  Not sure he is still at Texas with their new coach, but he made it back to big time college football.  it will take a couple of years for the stink of his Michigan career to wear off, but he will probably coach again

I wouldn't hire Borges to coach the local HS. He'd have the kids so confused that they wouldn't be able to function.
