Thoughts halftime Nebraska, Michigan

- Always a bad half offensively when a punt is considered the best play. Not an encouraging display of football by the Wolverines, although the defense is doing reasonably well and Michigan has stayed in the game. And this game is far from over. Nebraska is the classic college football enigma team. The Cornhuskers rise and fall on a whim, and it's quarter-by-quarter and half-by-half.
- Everybody who blames Rich Rodriguez's recruiting classes for Michigan's woes should consider a one of his small receivers, Jeremy Gallon, is the team's best player.
- Nebraska's defense is doing a very good job of "spying" Michigan QB Devin Gardner. The Cornhuskers are not biting on the Wolverines' misdirection plays or play fakes designed to free Gardner to make plays with his legs. Of course, you'd think while doing this, it would open up Wolverines' running back Fitzgerald Toussaint to make big plays and the intermediate passing routes. It hasn't.
- Horrible play call by Nebraska having QB Tommy Armstrong Jr. drop back into the end. He scrambled his way out of there, but a safety might have changed the course of this game.
