However, Wolverine fans are optimistic about the offense in general heading into tomorrow’s matchup.

Despite persistent issues offensively last week against Rutgers, the majority of Michigan fans are expecting the offensive attack to break out against Wisconsin tomorrow, according to data accumulated by an SB Nation poll.

65% of Michigan fans who participated in our poll are expecting a breakout performance on offense against the Badgers. The poll also found that 69% of Michigan fans do not believe there is a “major problem” with Michigan’s offense as a whole.

Interestingly enough, 52% of people are NOT confident in Michigan’s quarterback position at this moment in time. Sixty percent of respondents believe the coordinators and position coaches are to blame, while 20% believe it’s the players, and the final 20% believe Jim Harbaugh is to blame.

These results are very intriguing to me. Most folks believe Michigan’s offense isn’t concerning, but the quarterback position itself is. Cade McNamara didn’t have a great game against Rutgers, and he was the first to admit so after the game. There is room for growth, but the coaches, media, and fans need to give him the proper time to find that growth within the offense.

How do you feel about Michigan’s offense, and the quarterback position, as of today? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
