Michigan Football: Tidbits from Higbe — My Take Moving Forward … We Will Be Ok
Here is a small sample of Higbe’s post on the message board. To read the entire message please visit the message board.
First off, the coaching is as much to blame as the player. The delay of game at the end of the 4th quarters falls soley of the coaches. We were in the stands and saw the clock winding down. We were yelling we did not see one coach react to the clock. It took us out of FG and cost us a FG attempt. Now some will say it is DG job but he was distracted by something on the Michigan side line (from our view).I’m ****ed off at how the game went, but I see a light at the end. This game will change the O-line in a good way. First I have said the tackle over is going to get one of our tackles hurt if we use it as much as we did at Minny game. The tackles have taken on a huge load and are more then happy to do it. In return for being the best blockers and pass rushers they are getting beat up.
Taylor got a boo boo in the second quarter and left the game. The world did not end and the O-line did not collapse (any more) as a matter of fact they went on to score 17 pts without Taylor. We had 240 yds of passing 8.3 per reception. Our time of pos. was 36:13 compared to Penn 23:47. Our rushing was 149 yards. Most came in the second half. We had 7 penalties for 62 yards. At any giving time we had Gunderson/Schofield/Mags/Glasgow/Kalis/Joey B/Bryant/Lewan out there.There will be changes to the good. That’s the Light I see.
The O hung in there and gave the D a 7 pt lead with less than 40 sec left and Michael was the only lineman with any real amount of playing time (this is only his 2nd year starting at Tackle). He lead an O-line of young kids and I thought he did an outstanding job leading this group and moving from Rt to LT in a game you are losing to a position where everything is opposite and playing that position well and the O-line scoring 17 pts with out there top o-lineman, with 2 other starters being pulled out at different times of the game. At 1 pt just Michael and Gram were the only starters in the game.
I see changes coming and I think we will be ok.
