Halftime: Alabama is Destroying Michigan 31-7

Not even close. Besides Denard Robinson’s 71-yard pass to Gallon, Michigan has 48 yards on 35 offensive plays. Alabama is averaging more than 9 yards per pass and seven yards per carry on offense.

That disparity doesn’t quite encapsulate the degree Michigan was obliterated along both lines.┬áThese teams weren’t in the same class entering the game. That gap seems far wider than the media, at least that with a vested interest in selling this game, anticipated.

Talent issues aside, having Denard Robinson try to make NFL throws against All-American caliber coverage down the sideline is probably not the best use of his talent. Running him more gives Michigan a better probability of improving the scoreline, but, with 12 and possibly 13 games remaining, is the expected utility better than going into turtle mode?
