Seems Michigan didn’t desire a head trainer or a quarterback to overcome Penn State. In one of the vital extra embarrassing losses because the Nittany Lions’ loss to Ohio State a couple of weeks in the past, the Wolverines have been content material working the ball proper at Penn State en path to a 24-15 win.
J.J. McCarthy threw 8 passes whilst the Satisfied Valley crowd relentlessly booed its toothless offense, and any worry about Jim Harbaugh’s absence eased with each errant Drew Allar cross. If James Franklin nonetheless had supporters earlier than this sport, the closing of them gave up after the group’s failed fourth and 6th name within the ultimate length that resulted in a Blake Corum game-sealing landing at the very subsequent play.
Even the two-point take a look at — after Allar added a rubbish time TD that may’ve minimize the result in seven with sufficient time to make Michigan sweat — was once moronic. Swinging gate? Oof.
Meantime Michigan head trainer Sherrone Moore sobbed, swore, and professed his love for trainer Harbaugh right through the postgame interview with Fox’s Jenny Taft. It will’ve been uncomfortable if no longer for the accidental comedy.
Thanking god, after which Harbaugh felt redundant, however I digress.
Corum, who completed with 145 yards and two TDs on 26 carries, relieved Moore, after which gave any other passionate interview with blood pooling between his eyebrows from a minimize on his nostril. It was once the type of gritty win you’d be expecting in a borderline remarkable scenario.
But it surely’s no longer remarkable as a result of U-M started the season with out its patron saint for 4 weeks. The NCAA and the Large Ten proceed to throw stumbling blocks in entrance of Michigan, they usually stay breaking thru them find it irresistible was once Penn State’s entrance seven.
Did it assist that Franklin coached whilst staring at once into the solar? Sure, however we’ve all agreed to fail to remember how piss-poor the Large Ten is that this season. If Penn State is a top-10 group, I’m Arnold Palmer.
Regardless, now Ann Arbor’s easiest and brightest criminal minds have a complete week to take a look at to overturn the result of the B1G commissioner’s determination, and also you higher consider they’re going to hurricane one thing if Jim Harbaugh isn’t again at the sidelines through the Ohio State sport.
