Frustration around Jim Harbaugh mounts as Michigan loses to Michigan State

Washington Earns B1G Honor

The message from coach Mark Dantonio was basically to have faith. Like I said, before this football game, we were either going to win the game and have to handle success - we have seven more games to go; or we were going to have to regroup when we've got seven more games to go. Our goal was four coming in, we got five, we exceeded that, so that was great to see.

Right now it's hard to justify MI being ranked in the Top 20, if at all. When will backs like LJ Scott and Madre London play bigger roles? Regular starter Keller Chryst took the first snaps under center for the Cardinal (7/13, 106 yards), but was spelled regularly for K.J. MSU (4-1, 2-0) visits Minnesota on Saturday for an 8 p.m. game on the Big Ten Network.

Harbaugh says John O'Korn will make a second straight start when the 17th-ranked Wolverines play Saturday at Indiana.

"We definitely talked about it", Lewerke said. Up next is a game at Minnesota followed by a visit from IN and trip to Northwestern before the Penn State-Ohio State 1-2 punch. "I was proud to be a part of it". MI bizarrely put the ball in the hands of O'Korn amid a deluge, and three straight Wolverines possessions ended in interceptions. We just have to stay together as a team and we know the offense will come through when we really need them. "We made sure we were ready to go".

It was the latest solid outing for a defense that has been good all year. The defense will have it's work cut out for them in that game. It plays a huge role in the game. But Eddie McDoom committed one of the worst drops in recent memory by failing to catch a ball at the 31-yard line that would have put MI in a position to win the game with 19 seconds remaining.

Will No. 7 Michigan have any struggles at home when it hosts Michigan State tonight at 7:30PM ET in a Big Ten rivalry game? To the pundits doubting whether Michigan State would ever be relevant again. Haley is close behind with five on the year, having broken up a career-high three passes against Northwestern. "There's gonna be adversity and we have to fight through it".

Harbaugh said he has the final say on play calling.

Quarterback Wilton Speight was leading the Wolverines as he's thrown 44-for-81 completions which have been good for 581 yards and three touchdowns.

"I thought Tionna [Williams] was fantastic", Sheffield said.

The biggest surprise for Penn State so far this season has been the play of its defense. Receiver Felton Davis III has 21 catches for the Spartans which has resulted in 256 yards and four touchdowns.

MSU running back Gerald Holmes left the game after an apparent ankle injury early in the second quarter. The senior is 44 of 81 passing for 581 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Michigan's defense held Lewerke & Co.to 66 total yards in the second half but couldn't carry quite enough water to salvage a victory. "He probably could have played but we felt like we couldn't risk having him out for another couple of weeks if something happened".
