Michigan Football is back on the field this week as they go on the road and try to get the bad taste in their mouth from a loss last week.
The next challenge in the way is the Indiana Hoosiers, who is a team that Michigan has been 21-straight times they have gone up against each other. However, it is a program that never makes it easy and always plays the Wolverines tough.
After a horrid week against Michigan State, the offense will look to get back on track with John O’Korn under center for the Wolverines. Last time they played IU, O’Korn was the starter and the offense struggled to move the ball even in 2016 with the pieces that they had.
To say this is a must-win is a massive understatement. Despite a head-scratching rivalry loss, Michigan’s goals are still very much in front of them if they can stay out of their own way and take care of business.
Expecting the offense to explode may not be the wisest of choices this week, but it should be better and there should be a fire lit under this team coming off of a tough game.
