I’d pump the brakes just a tad before saying we are legit. We are desperately missing Collins at WR. And we are so thin at DT. The fact that Minn is running it down our throats with 2 of their starting linemen out is very concerning. But. I thought we would lose this game. Seemed like a typical Harbaugh loss on paper. Milton has really impressed me with his calmness. Making the right decisions. Not forcing anything. And it’s nice to have a Cam Newton at QB at the goal line.
Gotta think Nordin starts next week. Or, you trot out Moody one last time next week and if he misses you yank him.
Can anyone remember the last flag for holding thrown on the team playing Michigan? How is this possible?Minnesota simply did it on every play. Dax getting hurt is a hard pill for that secondary to swallow. Lots of inexperience.Milton looked pretty solid for a first start on the road, in the cold. No fans helped a bit, I’m sure.The offense seemed pretty balanced, and I agree, not having Nico is tough. They spread the ball around to everyone, which was good.Decent performance for the O-line.Good first game for the books, with the stand out of M kicking being atrocious.
So far, you guys have me sold on Milton. He looked really good and I had no idea he could run like that. The dude is HUGE. We have a run game and the O line played well. The D is not good-super thin on the line and the DB’s are brutal-so it’s gonna get rough. OSU will hang 75 on us but the rest? Could be interesting. With a full Minny team and a packed stadium, this game looks much different. But we take it and move on.
Fleck said they were in the game until the last 5 mins. I think he hit his head with one of those boat oars.
