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

Nightmare start

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 dropped in the AP Top 25 and Amway Coaches polls after the loss on Saturday, and they fell in the Land of 10 Power Poll as well. 

Downright offensive

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
