Default Michigan overrated?

Im not a Mich fan so I dont know anyhting about them this year. or is Vandy that good of a team? I was expecting this game to be a 40-10 whooping, but it was a ok game up until the last 6 minutes of the 4th quarter

Actually michigan dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball.

Run game was excellent.

D-line was dominant.

We left 10-14 points on the board due to drops and penalties and a fumble in the red zone. Vandy scored on a gimmick play for their only score and barely threatened the rest of the day. The score was not indicative of how lopsided the game was.

UM also ran a "vanilla" offense in this game and most likely will next week vs. CMU. We won't give Weiss much on film before the big matchup in a couple weeks.

I am satisfied with the exception of the pass protection, Grady's fumble, too many penalties, some key drops by the wr's.

Go Blue!

Vandy is always a tough nut to crack. One of the ESPN announcers referred to them as pesky. They are typically a solid defensive team they can just never recruit enough quality depth to be a consistently good team.

Cal is the team that is looking pretty overrated right now.

Vanderbilt played a lousy game. If they had any sort of consistency at QB, this one would've been much closer. Nickson seemed to either make a really good play or a really bad play- not a lot in between. Way too many times he seemed to give up on a play too early and run or stand in the pocket too long and take a sack. I wouldn't surprised if the Arizona transfer, Kovalchuk, isn't starting at QB soon. Vandy could win a couple of games this season if the passing game improves. Way too many dropped balls.

Michigan's faults are easily fixable. They dominated the lines and established the running game...at least from what I heard on the radio cuz I was in Columbus. That is what it takes to win consistently (something Ohio State had no clue about today).

Your thread:" Is Michigan overrated"?, makes no sense at all! You obviously did not watch the game. You probally just watched the ESPN highlights. Michigan is more like "underrated"! Beating a team 27-7,and only holding them to 7 points(TD) is a whooping. The wolverines defense dominated Vanderbilt.
Did you watch the Notre Dame vs Georgia Tech game? Why did you not post in the threads that Notre Dame is overrated? The score was 14-10 in favor of Notre Dame. GT dominated most of that game too.

First off, excellent job of turning around an "overrated" accusation. I can tell right off the bat that you are probably among the smartest Michigan fans in existance.

However, I do think a "Is Michigan overrated" thread makes perfect sense, especially after reading the initial post. Destro freely admits he doesn't know much about Michigan and is asking a legitimate question. In turn, Steve responded with (I assume) solid analysis, thus providing a real answer to the question.

And why is holding someone to seven points a whooping, but giving up 10 points is an obvious sign that ND was dominated?

Of course they're overrated. They dominated the Vanderbuilt line? Big deal. They also played Michigan tough all game. Looks like this is finally Carr's last year.

You obviously didn't watch the whole game as Notre Dame dominated the second half of that game. How is it you can make that statement when Notre Dame outgained Ga Tech 384-259, had 21 first downs to Tech's 14, and held the ball 10 minutes longer than the Jackets did?

Georgia Tech did a good job of containing Notre Dame's offense and their defense had its way with them for most of the first half, but the idea they dominated them from start to finish is laughable.

And if that happens, then the Buckeyes will just go crush the Wolverines like usual.

Michigan record vs Ohio State, 57-39-6 like usual. I don't think so!:lol. Anyways, I think OSU fans can agree with me on this, that the Big Ten is the toughest conference in college football.
