These are three of the most absurd overreactions from Michigan football’s adequate win over East Carolina.

Last year Michigan football was a second-half team. On Saturday they were a first-half team. They only scored seven in the second 30 minutes, but only gave up a gloomy field goal with five seconds left and should have put more points on the board. They are far from a finished product but got off the bus for the three-month week-to-week marathon on the right foot.

Here are the three overreactions from the rather tepid win.

1. Blake Corum is still not 100%

Corum stated that he was ready to roll before the season, so saying this would be an overreaction. He didn’t have his 100-yard plus stellar affair, but he didn’t need to and won’t need to for a while.

However if for some inexplicable reason, he’s not fully healthy, then he’s close and didn’t appear to show any side effects. He and the coaches are being as cautious as they should be when it comes to the All-American’s health.

Donovan Edwards got a series for himself and had a mild impact. The plan was to air it out more and they achieved that goal.

The running backs will certainly have their day, but to achieve the goals in the postseason, they must prep for anything until that time comes. For now, it could be the J.J. McCarthy show and that will definitely make the offense more balanced and dangerous.
