Rate Michigan football in every disappointment, 38-21 defeat to Indiana:
Michigan football’s hasty foul: F
Ten bring those who run backwards for 25 yards. Eleven of them went home with a second year redshirt Hassan Haskins, who performed six times in 19 yards.
Hoosiers line up and create a second year redshirt Joe Milton try to defeat them, and Michigan’s temporary line fails to meet the mission. Both start tackling – second year redshirt Ryan Hayes and Jalen Mayfield ̵1; was disqualified, but there was no excuse … Wolverines lost in the script line.
With the sack included, Wolverines only managed a total of 13 yards in an embarrassing performance. As a team, they averaged 0.7 yards per shot.

Michigan football pass violation: B-
Milton threw 344 yards in his third match, including a couple of correct numbers. He also missed an open chance Ronnie Bell Go deep and hit a costly intercept when Wolverines had all the momentum.
But… he’s learning, and you can see the potential. He made his take-down shots and completed nine passes from 20 meters or more, including a 52-meter player. Wolverines have left some plays on the pitch too, or it could have been even better.
Bell stepped up at 149 yards, in his second year Cornelius Johnson finishes with 82 and a stunning ball touch in traffic in a groundbreaking performance. However, apart from those two, the second year is running again Zach Charbonnet is the only pass catcher that differs from multiple swings (three for 28 yards).
Michigan Football Rushing Defense: B-
The Michigan front was not gasped, but ran back Stevie Scott III methodically performing his way 97 yards and two touches over 4.0 yards each. He did three shots of 10 yards or more.
The Indiana athletes finished with 118 yards out of 38 shots, just 3.1 yards per dash. But just like when they pitched, the Hoosiers didn’t have to run.
Michigan Football Passing Defense: F
Once again, an opposing caller had a day in his career against the Michigan defense, where it was impossible to reach midfield and unable to cover. Redshirt sophomore Cornerback Vince Gray had another tough day, giving up a couple of big plays and taking a penalty for an important pass, while the redshirt’s second-year opponent Gemon Green also completed a pass to pass him to open the scoring.
Hoosiers even gained a lot of metrics when UM attempted to roam the area.
Midfielder Michael Penix Jr. career-high in the third quarter and will complete 30-50 passes in 342 yards with three points. The UM defenders had two or three chances to pick them up but were unsuccessful, and for the second week in a row Wolverines failed to take a shot. Indiana participates in the contest allowing two kicks per match.
Michigan Football Special Team: B
Michigan is still not getting enough from the back game. Sophomore Giles jackson averaging 20 yards per return and just seven yards on two pitches. His farthest run was as a 21-yard athlete in one warm-up.
Redshirt Junior punter Brad Robbins Be the star of the special team. He averaged 53.6 yards per pitch and dropped four shots in round 20 with a length of 66. IU only scored 5 yards in a run back. Robbins will likely be a full-time gamer from here on.
