Michigan absolutely destroyed Minnesota today in what has to be the most dominant performance I've ever seen from the Wolverines. I know Minnesota isn't a good football team, but it was still an extremely impressive effort from offense and defense. Here's a few things that caught my eye.
- The run defense from Michigan was excellent; I can only remember one long run from Minnesota and that was towards the end vs our 2nd string D.
- Blake Countess continues to impress in coverage, and he even forced a fumble. He's not a big guy, but I thought he made some nice tackles too.
- Denard found some rhythm in the passing game and just looked really good throughout.
- The UM running backs looked explosive, especially Fitz. Credit to the OL for creating those running lanes.
- One bad note, kickoff coverage wasn't that great. It was saved by Minnesota giving away a penalty pretty much every time!
- First shutout since 07' !!!!!
