Overall, our passing game was weak. We ranked 95th nationally and 6th in the Big Ten. We averaged 199 yards per game on 13 receptions per game. Our receivers get little separation from backs on patterns. Our clock management was horrid! Poor play calling and clock management were specifically a weakness in coaching with Al Borgess. Why not give Fred Jackson a chance to call the plays in 2013?

It was unfortunate that Countess went down with a season ending injury. Thomas Gordon and Ramon Taylor had two intereptions each, and Gordon led the backfield in tackles. Jordan Kovacs was slowed with a right knee injury. Our pass defense was 2nd in the Big Ten to Nebraska, and 2nd nationally; however, our pass efficiency defense was 8th in the Big Ten and 35th nationally. The move of Thomas Gordon to Nickel against South Carolina was a disaster.
