Our offense is potent, but against solid Big Ten defenses, we are nothing special. Iowa, Michigan State, Penn State, Wisconsin and Notre Dame have controlled us pretty well. Mississippi State manhandled our offense. We have a good rushing attack with Denard Robinson as one of the leaders in NCAA Football, but only a mediocre passing attack and one of the worst turnover margins in the nation with poor red zone efficiency. We are one of the worst teams in the nation in time of possession.

Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell Michigan State (17 points), Penn State (10 points in the first half put us three scores down, 31 points), Iowa (7 points in the first half put us two scores down, 28 points total), Wisconsin (0 points in the first half, 28 in the second half, but never got closer than a 2 score lead), Mississippi State (14 points) and Ohio State (7 points). I don't think Nebraska knows either. This is not a disciplined offense, and with the consistency of the worst turnover margin in the Big Ten in the past three years, this offense provides opponent's opportunities to win games.

History of Michigan Quarterbacks

Robinson, Denard 16 QB 1 So. 6'0" 193 Starter 4.38 36" 315 19 2.9
Forcier, Tate 5 QB 2 So. 6'1" 192 Backup 4.55 33" n/a n/a n/a
Gardner, Devin 7 QB 3 Fr. 6'4" 210 Backup 4.63 n/a n/a n/a n/a
Kennedy, Jack 20 QB 4 So. 5'11" 185 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a
Wilson, Steve 4 QB 5 So. 5'11" 170 Walk-on n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Denard Robinson looked spectacular against mediocre and poor defenses, but the tough defenses were able to corral him. He set a new record in rushing for Michigan Quarterbacks breaking Steve Smith's 1981 record, and he broke John Navarre's 2003 record for total offense; he is the NCAA leader in total offense. He was Big Ten Player of the Week, and Walter Camp Player of the Week two weeks in a row. He is a leading Heisman Trophy candidate. He broke two NCAA records: most yards rushing for a quarterback and he became the first quarterback to run for 1500 yards and throw for 2000 in the same season. He plays quick, runs fast and has an excellent arm. It is no wonder he was the starter, he deserved to be. He ran for 1702 yards rushing and 14 TDs, and 182 of 291 in passing for 2570 yards and 18 TDs, 11 interceptions and 16 total turnovers. Robinson made 2nd Team All-Big Ten in his Sophomore Year, and was the Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year. Devin Gardner won the backup position, but Tate Forcier unseated him; Forcier was 54 of 84 for 4 TDs, 4 picks, a fumble for 4 turnovers and a sack plus 65 rushing yards for a TD. Forcier was ineligible for the Gator Bowl due to academic deficiencies, and was sent home from Jacksonville; his future for 2011 is uncertain. Gardner was 7 of 10 for another TD and 21 rushing yards; he still may be able to get a medical redshirt. Jack Kennedy and Steve Wilson are the walk-on backups.

Comments: Vincent Smith started 10 games; he had 601 net yards, 5 TDs and 15 catches for 130 yards and 2 TDs. He had 3 fumbles lost on the season. Michael Shaw started 5 games; he had 402 net yards, 9 TDs and 10 catches for 75 yards. Stephen Hopkins had 37 carries overall for 151 yards and 4 TDs. Mike Cox had 6 carries for 56 yards in the Bowling Green game, but he was injured most of the year and didn't make travel teams. Teric Jones has also moved to running back, but didn't make the travel team to Indiana; however, he did make the travel team to Penn State and was expected to play, but didn't. He had 3 carries for 7 yards, and suffered an injury in the Illinois game and is out for the rest of the season. Fitzgerald Touissaint had 8 carries for 87 yards, but has had injury issues with his shoulder, neck and knee. Touissaint started the Gator Bowl, and also caught a 5 yard pass. Austin White quit the team after enrolling in January and participating in Spring Drills, but apparently didn't do anything in the Summer and was asked by the coaching staff to move to safety; he will transfer to Central Michigan.

Each receiver has show flashes of brilliance, but we still had no "go to" guy. Roy Roundtree led in receptions. Daryl Stonum's 2 quick TDs against UMASS turned the tide and J.R. Hemingway had a big game against Indiana. We had five receivers who have caught at least 2 TDs each. In 13 games, we averaged 19 receptions and 250 yards per game. We had our best passing game of the year, and best in Coach Rod's tenure against Illinois. Ohio State covered our receivers easily in man coverage, and our longest pass as 22 yards to Jeremy Jackson. It is one thing to be throwing in desperation because your team is two or three scores behind, and throwing when the game is even and your team is attempting big plays or just completing key 3rd down passes. Most of our completions this year have been when we are behind.

Tight end position had 18 catches in 13 games for 266 yards and 3 TDs. Brandon Moore did not make the travel team to South Bend, Penn State, Purdue, Ohio State or Indiana. Tight end no longer exists in the Michigan football program and this new position is a "weak link." Tight End is now the new "fullback." Ricardo Miller redshirted.

The 3-4-4 Scheme has improved the defense, but not the defensive line. The line had only 10.5 sacks in 13 games. They got little penetration at the line of scrimmage, can't contain opponent's rushing schemes including sweeps, draws, cutbacks, etc. and get little or no pressure on quarterbacks. The entire philosophy of the 3-4 or 3-3-5 only works if a team has unbelievably good linebackers and stud defensive linemen, and we have neither. None of our defensive linemen are good and we only have a couple good linebackers. We give up the edge and middle to any good physical football team. How many good defensive lineman have we developed in the past three seasons under Coach Tall's leadership? I say fire him and the rest of the coaching staff.

Comments: Mike Martin had 37 tackles, 6 for loss including 2.5 sacks, but he had both ankles injured and missed a lot of playing time so he could not play at his usual high level. He made Big Ten 2nd Team despite his injuries. He is fooling himself if he thinks he's going to the NFL after the 2010 season; he only assisted on one tackle in the Gator Bowl. Adam Patterson had 16 tackles for the year including a sack as Martin's primary backup. Renaldo Sagesse contributed 5 tackles, 1 for loss. Will Campbell had one tackle, but Coach Rod moved him to offensive guard with Quinton Washington moving to Nose Tackle and he contributed two tackles.

Freshmen Richard Ash, Chris Eddins and Terry Talbott are redshirting. Walk-ons Alex Schwab and Nate Brink provide backup support, and Brink got in the Bowling Green game and made the travel squad to Ohio State.

Mouton led the team in tackles with 117. Kenny Demens unseated Obi Ezeh as our starting MIKE linebacker; so much for Coach Rod's prediction that Obi would have a "great" senior season. Demens ended the season as the #3 leading Wolverine tackler behind Mouton and Kovacs. Craig Roh has moved to the Defensive End position. Cameron Gordon has been moved to the starting SAM position with Carvin Johnson as his backup. J.B. Fitzgerald started as the 4th linebacker which is a Hybrid Defensive End/Outside Linebacker; Obi Ezeh backed him up.

Comments: Cameron Cameron was a disappointment at the Free Safety position so he was moved to the Spur position; the switch has been good for him, and he had 77 tackles, 4 for loss, 3 interceptions and 4 pass break ups in 13 games. Carvin Johnson was his backup, and he had 18 tackles, 2.5 for loss and one sack. Thomas Gordon contributed 23 tackles, 4 for loss including 2 sacks prior to being unseated as the starter and first backup by Cameron Gordon and Johnson. Floyd Simmons led our special teams with 10 tackles overall. Michael Williams has missed most of the year with concussion issues; he may need to take a medical scholarship. Rumor has it he was sent home at the Gator Bowl due to curfew violation. Brandin Hawthorne played on punt and kickoff returns, and recovered two fumbles; he got his first tackle in the Bowling Green game.

Obi Ezeh started the Wisconsin game after being unseated at MIKE-Middle Linebacker; he had 57 tackles, 4.5 for loss and a fumble recovery; he was named game Captain for the Notre Dame game. Brandon Herron had 7 tackles and a tipped pass, and 3 of his tackles are on kickoffs. Isaiah Bell didn't play the entire season, not even on special teams after redshirting in 2009. True Frosh Jordan Paskorz redshirted. Davion Rogers has left the team due to NCAA Clearinghouse issues, and probably won't be on the team in 2011.

Jordan Kovacs has been the leader in our defensive backfield, and provides great run support; he led the defense with 112 tackles, 8.5 for loss including a sack, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and 3 interceptions. Cameron Gordon has not performed well at free safety so he was moved to the Spur position. Ray Vinopal had 27 tackles in 5 starts with 2 pass break up and an interception. James Rogers had 34 tackles in 12 games with 3 pass break ups and 3 interceptions. J.T. Floyd and Troy Wolfolk are out for the rest of the season with ankle injuries. We have a walk-on Sophomore (Kovacs) as our leader, two true freshman (Vinopal and Avery) and a Senior who played wideout for his first two years (Rogers). All our first backups for each position are true freshmen or walk-ons (Talbott, Robinson and Christian). To say we are a young backfield is an understatement. Unfortunately, we were counting on leadership from our Senior linebackers and defensive linemen to help this group, but they haven't done the job.

Comments: We had the worst field goal team in the nation!!! Seth Broehuisen hit 42 of 43 PATs, and is 3 of 8 on field goal attempts; he has 36 kickoffs for a 59.4 yard average, two out of bounds with 3 touchbacks. Will Hagerup is our new kickoff starter. He had 16 kickoffs for a 60.4 yard average. Brendon Gibbons regained the starting job for the Gator Bowl, but hit one of 5 attempts, and 9 of 10 extra points with a bad hold being the problem on the one miss; he had 16 kickoffs for a 57.3 yard average with 3 touchbacks. As a team, we are ranked 10th in the Big Ten in kickoff coverage, and as a team we are 4 of 12 on field goal attempts and 53 of 55 on extra points. Justin Meram has been busy with the soccer team. Kris Pauloski made the travel team to Ohio State, but didn't play. Jeremy Ross was also competing along with Punter Will Hagerup. Scott Schrimscher came in to hit an extra point against Bowling Green. Kicking Battle

Comments: Drew Dileo and Doug Rogan were our holders. Dileo was the starter against Connecticut and Notre Dame, and fluffed a good snap on the missed extra point. Rogan held in most other games, and was in on his first tackle after the blocked field goal against Iowa. Dileo held for Gibbons and Rogan for Broekhuisen.

Punter
Hagerup
Broekhuisen

Hagerup, Will 43 P 1 Fr. 6'4" 210 Starter 4.8 28" n/a n/a 3

Comments: Will Hagerup punted 33 times for a 43.6 yard average, 11 inside the 20, 6 fair catches and 2 touchbacks; he was suspended for the Ohio State game and did not make the travel team due to violation of team rules. He had a blocked punt against UMASS that resulted in a TD, and another block in the Gator Bowl that went for 11 yards resulting in a Mississippi State field goal. Seth Broekhuizen backed him up, and punted 3 times against Ohio State for a 28.7 yard average and one downed inside the 20. Denard Robinson had a 30 yard Pooch Punt against the Irish downed at the 4 yard line, and Tate Forcier has 4 pooch punts for a 39.2 yard average, and one inside the 20. Our net punting improved, and was ranked 54th nationally and 7th in the Big Ten.

Odoms, Martavious  9 PR 4 Jr. 5'8" 175 Injured n/a n/a n/a n/a n/a

Comments: Jeremy Gallon 4 fumbles; luckily, he recovered his own fumble against Indiana inside the 10 and Brandin Hawthorne was able to come up with two fumbles to bail him out, but Illinois recovered his 4th fumble. He had 10 returns for 43 yards (4.3 yards per return) with a lot of poor decisions, and poor execution. Drew Dileo got his first punt return for 15 yards; he had another, but it was called back for a penalty. Martavious Odoms had a 14 yard return against MSU, but broke his foot. We were ranked 98th nationally and 10th in the Big Ten in punt returns. We have only 12 returns in 12 games, and it appears our coaches have resolved to tell the returners to just leave the ball alone so we don't turn it over. Junior Hemingway came in for the Gator Bowl and ran one back 34 yards to set up a red zone opportunity that Gibbons blew with a missed field goal.

Odoms had 8 returns for 181 yards. Drew Dileo had 8 returns for 173 yards, and looks like our returner of the future since he is a North/South runner. Terrence Robinson had 2 returns for 27 yards. Fitz Touissaint returned one for 28 yards in the Gator Bowl We were poor here with 72 returns for a 21.4 yard average ranking us 77th nationally and 7th in the Big Ten.

Fitzgerald, Jordan Kovacs, Brendan Gibbons, Paul Gyarmati, John McColgan, etc. Kickoff team was poor and ranked 10th in the Big Ten.
