Thoughts after 3rd quarter, Akron, Michigan

- You run the ball well, good things will happen. Fitzgerald Toussaint broke off a couple nice runs (although one was called back because of a penalty) and the seas parted for the Michigan offense. It wasn't a coincidence.
- We've heard a lot about Jehu Chesson, but we've seen remarkably little of him until his third quarter touchdown. It was an impressive catch and run. Freshman tight end Jake Butt also caught a pass on the drive. Both are extraordinarily talented young players and part of why the Wolverines' future appears so bright.
- I amazed with how smooth Devin Gardner is as a runner. It's like defensive players just slow down and he is controlling them as he moves by them.
- I hate to use such comparisons, but the Lions did come to mind when Michigan was shooting themselves in the foot early in this quarter.
- Akron is lacking home run power, but the Zips have been remarkably consistent when it comes to moving the ball deep into Michigan territory. What's the main issue with the Wolverines defensively? Pretty much everything. Remember, it wasn't like the Wolverines played that well defensively vs. Notre Dame, either.
