Special teams: A
The Wolverines did allow a 32-yard kickoff return but there wasn’t a single-yardage of punt returns. Michigan’s James Turner made his one field-goal attempt, as well as all of his extra points.
Tyler Morris had another nice return too. His 27-yard return shows why he should be the No. 1 guy back there. He also caught four passes for 54 yards and is making me forget about A.J. Henning, as much as I loved that dude.
One head coach apparently told Tom Allen “Get ready for an NFL team” when facing Michigan football and that’s a credit to the coaching staff.
Jim Harbaugh and his staff are as good as any in college football in terms of half-time adjustments. Jesse Minter deserves plenty of credit for that on the defensive side of the ball too.
Indiana stopped Michigan twice. Then, the Wolverines scored eight drives in a row. Sherrone Moore has done a great job of making this offense about McCarthy instead of just hammering away with the running backs.
Make no mistake, Michigan football can ground and pound with the best — they proved that at Nebraska — rushing for 249 yards on a defense allowing 1.8 yards per attempt.
This Michigan team can beat you in a lot of different ways and that’s a credit to the coaching staff, which has U-M firing on all cylinders in all three phases.
