Same issues surface as MI stuffs Gators in opener

  • On the scene Observations from Michigan's win over Florida

Florida safety Duke Dawson Jr. was in the right place at the right time, scooping up a pass from Speight that was tipped by wide receiver Kekoa Crawford, and returning it 48 yards for a touchdown.

The Gators' offense, as it has many times in recent history for Florida, came from the defense. Even with starter Wilton Speight throwing two interceptions that Duke Dawson and true freshman C.J. Henderson returned untouched for TDs in the second quarter, the Wolverines were in control almost the entire game.

Michigan Wolverines running back Chris Evans (12). As expected MI started Wilton Speight, but gave John O'Korn two series when Speight was struggling. MI scored on the opening drive with a three yard run from Karan Higdon, giving them the lead 20-17. After that touchdown drive to open the half, the Wolverines settled for back-to-back field goals, a punt, and then Nordin attempted two more that he missed.

It is a bit interesting that Harbaugh went with O'Korn and not freshman Brandon Peters, who impressed during spring football, and some thought would win the job outright. Yet as the game wore on there were fewer and fewer moments of promise and in the post game press conference, when it would be expected to hear some sort of plan for moving forward, there was none, save for a few sentences about quarterback and offensive line play.

Who was going to start at quarterback for the Wolverines?

The touchdown was quickly confirmed, tying the game 10-10 early in the second quarter.

This game should be physical, as I expect both defenses to still be very good.

Last season, MI football averaged 425.3 total yards, 212.0 in passing and 213.3 in rushing per game. So we've got to do some things that way to help. Even with the deduction of six sacks for minus-55 yards, that kind of ground game isn't going to win many games against anyone, let alone a blueblood program like MI. Disappointed in the lack of being able to run the football...it was terrible disappointing, I'll tell you that. "That just lets me know that later in the season, you know, we're gonna be in good hands with them".

Defensive coordinator Don Brown will have to replace 10 starters from a unit which ranked in the top five nationally of nearly every major category but will still boast one of the nation's most feared defensive lines, headlined by Gary and potential National Football League first-round pick Maurice Hurst.

Before we get into this, it's important to note the situation.

"I can't point my finger at the offense", Dawson said.

The only real answer Florida had all game for Jim Harbaugh's crew was in the secondary where a group of young guys answered the bell to be the unit Gator fans expect. That includes the possible return of 10 players from indefinite suspension, including top receiver Antonio Callaway and running back Jordan Scarlett.
