2. Michigan can beat anybody by forcing the run at a defense
We haven’t seen much to argue this statement thus far in 2022, but this may be dispelled come November 26th. Michigan’s offensive line has been thoroughly roughing up defenses for weeks now. Indiana was the only foe on the schedule to hold Michigan’s run game in check somewhat for a mere 165 yards. That makes this an overreaction for the time being.
Eventually, the Wolverines will have to pass the rock, but it probably won’t come until they square off with Ohio State because of their non-stop motor offense.
320 yards was the most passing yards that the Wolverines put up this season when they upended Hawaii in week two. J.J. McCarthy’s most impressive outing respectively was in the Indiana win with a 300-yard, 3-touchdown performance.
Blake Corum and his teammates have been virtually unstoppable at the point of attack on the line of scrimmage. As the saying goes “if it’s not broke, then don’t fix it.”
That’s exactly what Jim Harbaugh and his staff have been daring the nemesis to do on a weekly basis. No one has stopped their run yet and may not be able to until we actually see it.
