Well, that was bad. I’m going to keep this short because I want to forget this game ever happened. The defense was awful and the offense was worse. Shane Morris got hurt and was inexplicably left in the game. I’m guessing Brady Hoke figured that since you throw with your arm, it’s okay for your quarterback to injure his ankle. Morris wasn’t great, but given the offensive line’s inability to block anyone, the fact that he’s a sophomore making his second career start, and the aforementioned injury, I’m not ready to give up on him.
The defense was just all-around lousy this week. Minnesota had no trouble running on Michigan and since nobody has trouble throwing on Michigan, stops were hard to come by.
Hoke Watch: I know mid-season firings aren’t that common, but I will be legitimately surprised if Brady Hoke still has a job on Monday morning. Same goes for Dave Brandon.
