Michigan had a number of instances when it couldn't get three yards on third down. Against a MAC team.
The pass protection is still a big issue.
The right side of the line looks too weak and too slow.
Michigan does not throw down the field or over the middle.
Special teams blow--kick returns have been poor, kick coverage has been worse, and Michigan is getting many fewer touchbacks.
Only at Michigan can the team score 41 points and still seem obviously unprepared for Notre Dame. English seems to have changed the mindset of the defense, but this is still very much a Lloyd Carr team.
