Special teams: A
Tyler Morris had a 30-yard return and showed why he should be the No. 1 return guy. Jake Thaw had an 11-yard return earlier but struggles too much catching the ball. James Turner made all of his kicks and Tommy Doman’s only punt was a 65-yard bomb.
The coverage units were solid and Michigan didn’t allow an inferior opponent to get a spark on special teams. It was another area that the Wolverines dominated.
Jim Harbaugh’s teams always improve and this Michigan football team looked even better this week than it did in the 31-7 win over Rutgers.
The running game has continued to improve and really didn’t have much resistance. Nebraska limited some of the explosive runs but the Wolverines have no problem allowing teams to die the slow death with 3-4 yards all the way down the field.
When Michigan can run the ball like that, with the way McCarthy is playing, I’m not sure how you stop this offense. I also don’t know how you move the ball against Michigan football — unless you’re a team like Georgia or Ohio State which is just loaded with freakish athletes.
This team is for real and the staff is getting the best out of it, even if the opponents aren’t all that great.
