Wolverines Blogging: Game One Aftermath

So...yeah, this is a rebuilding year

I'm going to revise my expectations for this season. I'm now thinking if they get to 8 or 9 first downs, we can call it a success.

Even with that comeback, an awful loss that could have been a lot worse if it wasn't for Utah's penalty bug. That's what happens when you can't move the ball. At all. They had flashes here and there, the occasional big play, but nothing consistent - at least, not until far too late. They just got their asses handed to them.

And, of course, Utah's QB looked like a Heisman winner, picking apart their weak secondary with ease. With the defense tiring after being handed bad field position after bad field position, they didn't even need to run the ball.
