Michigan Football: Tidbits from Higbe — Looking for a Solid Win Saturday

Indiana Game:

IMO we will see changes to the Oline again. We have a solid core of Lewan/Glasgow/Schofield. We have started Bryant/Miller/Kalis and combination of those. Last week Joey B. and Mags got very good play time. In a extremely loud stadium of 107,000 fans … 100,000 of them are against you.

Here is my BIASED opinion:

We were down 21-10 and lost our top O-lineman 4 year starter and future 1st rounder. The O-line did not fold up as some would expect. On top of that we played Gunderson/Mags/Joey B/Kalis/Bryant, the O still came back and scored and took the lead. It was not pretty, but Michael was the only player with time at a position and he is just in his second year as a starter at RT.

Then Michael moved to LT and you had nobody playing any position with ANY Real STARTING TIME against a sell out Homecoming Game and we were in the game through 3 OT’s.

We played a little better in the second half, looking at who played the experience of the O-line. The Atmosphere of Beaver Stadium, the urgency of the game, replacing players. Schofield/Glasgow had different people next to them more than they had the same. What I take away moving forward, our young line came through with at least good game experience and I look for a solid win Saturday with an improved run game. Wednesday’s practice will most likely set the starters.

I am not as down on the O-line as most after the Penn State game when you consider losing Taylor and all the switching around, we did not get blown out. The run game sucks, no argument there, but this weeks game must show improvement with any new changes, if not, it will be struggle going forward.
