We discuss Brandon Peters, the tight ends, why Tyrone Wheatley, Junior., is not getting good touches, and much more.
I believe Wheatley’s insufficient touches have more details on others than other things. He’s performed in four from the five games to date this year, on special teams and also at tight finish, but Sean McKeon and Zach Gentry have both had the ability to get open and catch passes with regularity. When receivers are battling to spread out themselves up, quarterbacks tend to discover the guys getting open. That isn’t only limited Wheatley’s targets, but it is forced the Michigan coaching staff to more stuff for McKeon and Gentry.
A: To begin with, Rob, he’s No. 3 around the quarterback depth chart, a well known fact which has been known now since halfway through preseason camp. For Peters to experience significant minutes, something serious will have to happen with Wilton Speight and John O’Korn. Well, Speight remains by helping cover their a fractured vertebrae, while O’Korn has not even performed two full games yet. Yes, he battled within the other half against Michigan Condition, but bear in mind it had been while it is raining and that he has lots of issues around him. The offensive struggles all aren’t his fault, just like Speight wasn’t responsible for the problems within the first three games either.
Whenever Michigan has challenge with its running backs (remember, Chris Evan fumbled against Purdue), it’s usually attended Higdon. And Higdon has responded. Possibly you’re ready to provide him the football more to determine what he is able to do.
A: It is a question which was most perplexing appearing out of Saturday, Ben, and something Jim Harbaugh chose to not answer now. Trust me, it had been requested. Over and over.
Let us go …
A: Not a chance, just you. To date this year, I count five other Big Ten teams which have lost the following game following a bye week. How to be fair, three of individuals were conference games. However it happens, much like it did to Michigan in 2014, once the Wolverines lost to MSU a few days following a bye.
