3 overreactions from Michigan football’s win over Bowling Green

These are three of the most absurd overreactions from Michigan’s win under the bright lights of the Big House.

Michigan football wrapped up its non-conference slate by laying Bowling Green to bed. The Wolverines were sluggish offensively in certain moments, but the defense was certainly not.

Without Connor Bazelak neither quarterback who replaced him could do anything, but the Falcons did win the turnover battle in the loss. Concerns over how J.J. McCarthy regressed from the first two weeks are plausible, but hopefully not a trend of things to come.

Here are the three overreactions.

1. This team isn’t scoring enough style points

For the third straight victory Michigan football looked like it could have scored more, but they still won in convincing fashion. That makes this an overreaction for another week. Some folks are still complaining online that Michigan doesn’t have the killer instinct to put the hammer down and score more points to cover the spread. My educated guess is they could care less about it.

However, the backups have gotten work in the fourth quarter and have not had any significant scoring drives. If they had scored at least a touchdown in all three wins, then it feels like there would be nothing worth sulking over. As a result, it should want to make them work twice as hard for better outcomes.

All Michigan football has to do is win out and everything will be fine. People will forget about how they performed in the first three weeks. Of course that is easier said than done, because they have to go out and actually do it week in and week out, but so does everyone else.
