Phil’s Game Grades

Special TeamsA

So that’s what the offense is supposed to look like…

Offense-  Finally, the offense gets on track totaling 476 yards (141 rush, 335 pass) with the Wolverines leading at half 24-0 on the way to 52-0 drubbing. The huge thing is that Michigan only turned the ball over once.

Defense –  The Michigan defense rebounded from last week’s embarrassment and shut Rutgers out.

Special Teams –  Nice to see so many PATs.

Coaching –  Josh Gattis moved from the booth to the sidelines and seemingly supercharged the Michigan offense. The offense finally showed fans what “speed in space” is supposed to look like.

Comments – Great way to rebound after last week but it was just Rutgers, a team that probably shouldn’t be in the Big Ten. Still Michigan put on an offensive show with QB Shea Patterson playing his best game of the season.
