Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan — Just One More Thing

Here is a small sample of MaizeMan’s post on the message board. To read the entire message please visit the message board.

My take on the punt call

1) First the punter did not execute the punt at all. He was not suppose to kick it in the end-zone.

2) But, the punt to me was the not the issue, it was the play-calling the 2 plays before the punt. The fact we decided to sit on the ball, and let time run (which was a good idea), but it cost us yardage and basically took us out of field goal range.

There are ways to we could of kept the clock running by doing something different than just handing the ball off when Penn state at that point had 9 guys in the box.

How about a pass to a RB or how about something they would of never expected, a fake, and a pass to the FB?

In any event, it is our inability to even gain 2 or 3 yards that is making these decisions seem almost ridiculous.

I am sure this week we are going to hear how we need to improve, but we are running plays that almost every pro style teams run.
