Nobody wants to be pushed around.
Especially if you’re a football player.
For Michigan tight end Sean McKeon, he’s sick of people pushing around the Wolverines’ offense as a whole. According to Angelique Chengelis of The Detroit News, McKeon said this week, “We’re sick of the defense pushing us around in practice, so we’re not going to let that happen anymore.”
Wait, is the Michigan defense manhandling the offense in spring practices so far? Chengelis asked if that had been going on and McKeon replied, “No, we’re not letting that happen.”
But, what did McKeon mean when he said he’s sick of the defense pushing the offense around in practice? Was he talking about last season or the last few seasons?
McKeon, who will be a junior this season after recording 31 catches for 301 yards and 3 TD last year, talked about how the team has a new attitude and that last year motivated the team to be better this year. Michigan went 8-5 overall last season.
“Just new attitudes from the coaching staff, the strength staff really getting us going, getting us competing hard against each other,” McKeon said. “As an offense as a whole, we just want to be better. That’s what we’ve got to do is be better.”
McKeon’s absolutely correct that the offense needs to be better for the maize and blue. Last season, Michigan went 0-4 against Ohio State, Wisconsin, Michigan State and Penn State.
In this four games, the Wolverines scored a combined 53 points. That averages out to a little over 13 points per game.
Michigan begins its 2018 regular season schedule with a 7:30 p.m. ET game on Sept. 1 against Notre Dame at Notre Dame Stadium. The Wolverines’ spring game is set for a 7 p.m. start on April 14 at Michigan Stadium.
