So far so good, but I'd really like to see M more dominant physically over this team.

Paul,
Radio said that Bush just got the wind knocked out of him and would return next series.

Agreed. It looks like Cincy is using a quick short passing game to neutralize UM's d line.

It's amazing how awful Speight is at the simplest plays.

He's going to lose games this team should win.

Won't be this game, but it's going to happen.

Sloppy early. I expect they'll calm down soon.

Speight is sloppy. Every other wolverine on the field has been fine.

Even forgetting the botched handoff that cost them a TD, I don't know how many more of his high fastballs I can take.

When he misses he misses by 5 feet. And he misses a lot.

Sometimes I think the one of the worst things that can happen is for a team that is clearly better to get the ball first and have an easy knife through butter TD drive to start the game. I think it lends to overconfidence.

Could be. The offense has looked pretty bad after the 1st drive.

Tends to happen when you have no offensive leader. Shame because there's a lot of talent this year.
