Rutgers vs. Michigan Recap

Spolier Alert: This was worse than against Ohio State

NCAA Football: Michigan at Rutgers Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

Well then. We are either really bad or these teams are ridiculously good. I think it is a combination of both. After getting shutout two straight weeks, one of which was at home under the lights in an alleged stripe-out, I am more down on this team than ever. Coach Chris Ash listened to the fans and pulled Laviano after a poor start. Unfortunately, Zach Allen did very poorly himself.

Rutgers was down 36-0 at the half and never had a chance to come back. They had zero first downs and almost zero yards in total offense.

Our total offense was still at a mere 16 yards entering the fourth quarter. The Wolverines dominated us more handily than the Buckeyes did, which I did not think was really possible.

The offensive line was pitiful; they were getting pushed around and Zach Allen was constantly under pressure despite his roll-out attempts. The receivers were never open making it hard for Laviano and Allen to find a target under pressure or even calm in the pocket. The offense was stagnant and embarrassing.

There really is not much to say about this game other than we were so bad. This is one of the worst performances I have ever seen in a football team in general, never mind Rutgers football. We gave up nine rushing touchdowns and over 600 yards of offense, almost 500 of which were on the ground.

We have gotten outscored 136-0 in the past two games. Wow...

I really hope when I go back for homecoming next weekend against Lovie Smith and the Fighting Illini we can move the ball a little and stop the other team from eclipsing fifty points.
