So far, the best offenses in the Big Ten are Penn State, Ohio State and Wisconsin; two of these teams will be in the Big Ten Championship game. It is no mistake that the best offenses have the best rushing attacks; we won't be a contender until we have an offensive line who can sustain a potent running attack. How bad is our offense? We rank 55th nationally in rushing, 5th in the Big Ten so we are mediocre in run blocking, decent, but not great. We can move the ball between the 20s, but when we get to the Red Zone, we have only converted 9 of 20 red zone attempts into TDs with 8 of those being on the ground. Our passing game? We are ranked 97th nationally in passing, 11th in the Big Ten, and our passing efficiency is even worse as its ranked 108th nationally and 12th in the Big Ten. We have thrown for 4 TDs in 7 games. Our quarterbacks are making poor decisions and executing the passing game poorly. Why? They are hurried and pressured due to a poor offensive line who is ranked 118th in the nation, and 13th in the Big Ten in giving up sacks; they are also ranked 114th in the nation and 13th in the Big Ten in giving up tackles for loss. We have too many negative plays because our offensive line is so bad. We can't execute the passing game because our quarterbacks don't have enough time to look through their progressions; then, they make poor decisions. We also have too many turnovers, most of which have been on the quarterbacks (9). So much for paying our Offensive Coordinator, Tim Drevno, and Passing Game Coordinator, Pep Hamilton, over a million dollars each per year. As a result, we are ranked 106th nationally and 11th in the Big Ten in gaining first downs, and our 3rd down conversion ratio is 110th in the nation and 13th in the Big Ten. We are in too many 3rd and long situations due to a poor running game; we have good backs, but a pathetically weak offensive line. When are getting time of possession advantage because our our defense, but we aren't capitalizing on the advantage because our offense is so poor. Tim Drevno and Pep Hamilton are not doing the job as Offensive and Passing Game Coordinators; their play calling is lackluster, and there has been little improvement in our offense for the first 7 games. We have zero candidates to earn All-Big Ten recognition at any offensive position.

Comments: Sean McKeon has 18 receptions for 192 yards with 5 starts. McKeon on September 20 McKeon on August 18. Zach Gentry has 8 catches for 134 yards with 4 starts. Gentry on October 4 Gentry on September 12  Gentry on August 19. Nick Eubanks caught 2 passes for 61 yards including a 48 yards with one start, but hasn't played since the Purdue game due to injury. Eubanks on September 2 Ian Bunting has one reception for 6 yards. Bunting on September 20 Tyrone Wheatley Jr. has 2 catches for 11 yards with one start, but is now playing with a cast on his left arm. Chris Hanlon, Carter Selzer and Ryan Veingrad have walked on; Selzer was mentioned by Harbaugh as an early standout, but Veingrad didn't make the roster.  Veingrad beats cancer to become Michigan Preferred Walk-On Devin Asiasi has transferred to UCLA with Coach Fisch. Bunting had 3 years to develop under Coach Harbaugh, Coach Drevno, and Coach Frey; McKeon, Wheatley, Gentry, Eubanks have had two years to develop. Luke Schoonmaker and Mustafa Muhammad have pledged for 2018! Will we add Luke Ford, Michael Ezeike, Tommy Treble,  and/or others?

Our passing offense is currently ranked 8th in the Big Ten, but 12th in passing efficiency! We have not been able to impose too much of a threat to our opponents with only 4 passing TDs in our first 5 games; two on bombs from our opponents 40 yard line. We are not getting the ball to all the eligible receivers, and our backs need to get involved in screen passes. On the bright side, our receivers have all shown they are capable threats; Black, Peoples-Jones, Gentry, Eubanks, McKeon and Crawford have all shown that they can get open and have good hands.

CommentsNolan Ulizio started the first 5 games at Right Tackle, but Juwann Bushell-Beatty has started the last two games. Ulizio on September 5 Bushell-Beatty played only on special teams in the previous 4 games. Bushell-Beatty and Ulizio have had 3 years to develop under Coach Drevno and Coach Frey. Cesar Ruiz played tackle and switched jerseys to #96; his is a 3rd tackle lined up as a double tight end, but hasn't played in the last two games. Andrew Stueber made the trip to Dallas, and played, but hasn't played since so he'll probably redshirt. James Hudson didn't trip to Dallas due to a concussion, but did dress for Cincinnati; he hasn't played so he'll probably redshirt. Runyan on August 22 Bushell-Beatty on April 6 Grant Newsome will take a redshirt, then he could go on medical scholarship; he could possibly compete in 2018 if rehab works. Will we add Daniel Faalele, Jalen Goss, Jerome Carvin, Nicholas Petit-Frere, Marquan McCall or others?

Comments: Michael Onwenu started the first 7 games. Onwenu on October 4 Onwenu on March 31 Jon Runyan has been inserted more and more in the last 3 games with significant action against Purdue, but didn't play against MSU; he got reps against Indiana. Chuck Filiaga made the travel squad to Dallas, and dressed for Cincinnati; it looks like he'll redshirt. Walk-on Andrew Vastardis is the next backup. Dan Jokisch is a walk-on backup. Sean Fitzgerald and Jess Speight are new walk-ons who made the roster. David Dawson transferred to Iowa State, but then left their program to go to Morgan State. Will 2018 pledge Emil Ekiyor keep his commitment?

Our offensive line has been decent so far in run blocking, but not so good on pass protection. We have a good left side, but our right side is horridly weak especially in pass protection.

So much for being pleased with our defense. Both Penn State and Michigan State attacked our best defensive players: Bush and Winovich, and both won the gamble. Dantonio ran right at Winovich early, and were successful; they also didn't need to double-team Gary. Our best defensive lineman has been Hurst, then Winovich with Gary ranked 3rd. Penn State's offensive line handled both Hurst and Gary. Our linebacking play has been mediocre with Bush being the exception; however, he has not shown enough leadership against our best opponents so far. Furbush does a lot of running around, but he doesn't wrap up anyone, and McCray was picked on during the first drive when Michigan State scored. McCray did not look like a 5th year Senior Co-Captain on that drive. Penn State set up a problem matchup with McCray on Barkley, and they won that gamble as well. One would have to assess our safety play as very, very poor; Metellus had no tackles against MSU, and looked like a high school player against Penn State. Our cornerbacks have been much improved; LaVert Hill is a strong corner, and David Long is adequate to above average. Surprisingly, Brandon Watson has done a quietly strong job, but even he didn't do well against Penn State. Overall, our defense has been great between the 20s, but weak in the red zone; we rank 67th nationally and 11th in the Big Ten in Red Zone Defense. The best defenses in the Big Ten are Penn State, Wisconsin, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Michigan. Penn State showed our defense is good, but not great.

Our special teams play so far has been "up and down." On the positive side, Quinn Nordin has a great leg, and a threat for us to score from 55-60 yards, but the missed extra point against Penn State showed a real mental lapse, and a lack of concentration. James Foug has a great kickoff with a very high hanging kick allowing defenders to get down on cover, and we have some very fast, tough cover men with Nate Schoenle, Ben Mason, Ambry Thomas, James Ross, Mike Wroblewski, Jared Wangler, and others. Donovan Peoples-Jones is an exciting player to watch, but also with high-risks can result in turnovers. On the negative side, our punting team is really bad, and we amongst we worst teams nationally in net punting. This has hurt us in close games. Our kickoff return unit has improved after Ambry Thomas replaced Kekoa Crawford. So far we rank 33rd Nationally and 5th in the Big Ten in Special Teams Efficiency.

Comments: Redshirt Quinn Nordin hit 14 of 16 attempts with two from 50 yards; he is one of the leading field goal kickers in the nation, and our leading scorer with 61 of our 176 points. Nordin on September 2 James Foug kicked off 39 times with 25 touchbacks for a 64.1 yard average; kickoff coverage was outstanding with tackles by Nate Schoenle, Ben Mason, Benjamin St. Juste, James Ross, Mike Wroblewski, Jared Wangler, Joe Hewlett, and a forced fumble/recovery by Ambry Thomas! We rank 3rd nationally and first in the Big Ten in Kickoff Coverage.

Comments: Cameron Cheeseman has 7 starts, but missed his assignment on the first punt and it was blocked. He almost had one snap go over Robbins head against MSU; he took a holding penalty against Indiana. Andrew Robinson is a capable backup. Matt Baldeck probably redshirts. Scott Sypniewski transferred to Vanderbilt.

Comments: Will Hart started the first 3 games; he had 13 punts for a 35.9 yard average with one blocked. Brad Robbins has 4 starts; he punted 29 times for a 40.76 yard average with 7 downed inside the 20. Our net punting is 103rd nationally, and 12th in the Big Ten. The 53 yard runback against Indiana in the 4th quarter to set up a red zone shows how bad our punt coverage team is. Nate Schoenle is an excellent flyer or gunner on punt coverage, and was elected Captain of Special Teams for Cincinnati; however, he didn't play against Indiana due to injury. Benjamin St. Juste is our other gunner, and he had the punt hit him that Cincinnati recovered for a fumble; Peoples-Jones has to call him off in the future. Noah Furbush had a tackle against MSU; he also gets down quickly as he is so fast. Devin Gil got a tackle against Indiana. Both Khaleke Hudson and Josh Uche could be great punt rushers, but Jared Wangler almost got a block against MSU.

CommentsAmbry Thomas and Donovan Peoples-Jones deep. We've seen enough of Kekoa Crawford who had 8 returns for 139 yards; Brad Hawkins has 3 returns for 42 yards, and Ambry Thomas has 4 returns for 117 yards. In all, we have 15 returns for a 19.87 yard average with Thomas having the longest at 43. We are ranked 90th nationally and 9th in the Big Ten in kickoff returns; the personnel change from Crawford to Thomas was long overdue.

Both Jordan Glasgow and Joey Hewlett earned scholarships for the 2017 season. Cheeseman, Foug, and Hart started the game. Dunaway, Grodman, McCurray, and Wilson made the trip to Dallas, and Wilson played on special teams along with Schoenle. Chu, Dantzler, Davis, Deeg, Dickow, Ferris, Kay, Krupp, Makki, Plocki, Veingrad, and Young didn't made the initial roster, but could join the squad officially later. Plocki did dress for MSU, and replaced Nate Johnson on the roster.

Comments on schedule:  Composite Big Ten Schedule Rutgers will close October at Michigan Stadium in one of the easiest games on the schedule, and the Gophers will attempt to win back the Brown Jug in November with new Coach P.J. Fleck. Two more road tests face Michigan at Maryland and Wisconsin prior to closing their season with National Contender, Ohio State, who we haven't defeated since 2011, and only defeated three times in the century in 17 meetings. It looks like an 8-4 season with losses to MSU, Penn State, Wisconsin, and Ohio State. The winner of the Penn State-Ohio State game will most likely face Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game although Michigan State also has a shot to get to the title game, and the winner will probably get one of the 4 BCS spots to compete in the National Championship. The Alabama-Georgia winner probably gets a spot for the SEC, the Clemson/North Carolina St vs. Miami-FL winner in the ACC probably get another spot, and the PAC-12 winner probably gets the 4th spot although TCU and Notre Dame both have shots. We are probably candidates for the Holiday, Outback, Pinstripe or TaxSlayer Bowls as the 5th place team.
