Michigan loss gives rise to criticism; QB John O’Korn has start to forget
Michigan football is always the main topic in Breakfast of Victors, Land of 10’s daily Wolverines notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Wolverines sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Michigan football, recruiting, basketball and more.
Michigan loss creates national reaction
One loss can sure bring out the vultures for a program. Fans were none-too-pleased with Michigan and coach Jim Harbaugh and his staff following the 14-10 loss to Michigan State on Saturday night. National critics saw their opening and took it.
Paul Finebaum has had a long-running back-and-forth with Harbaugh, and the loss had Finebaum saying that Harbaugh will be heading back to the NFL.
Quarterback John O’Korn’s first start of the season went nothing like he hoped or envisioned it would.
Michigan drops in polls
The Wolverines’ offense was, well, offensive and Land of 10’s Rachel Lenzi explains why.
Where will Michigan go bowling?
The first week of October is behind us, so how about a little bowl projection? Land of 10 says the Wolverines are still on pace to be headed to a January bowl game.
Don Brown’s defensive unit continues to play at a high level. It kept the Wolverines in the game despite repeatedly being put into difficult situations by the offense’s turnovers.
Jim Harbaugh said it was fair to criticize the Michigan offensive play-calling. Jeff Seidel of the Free Press agrees.
Hockey splits on the road
