What I saw today, missing for the previous three seasons, was competence on defense. Passes were covered without penalty, tackles were made, third downs were stopped. What happened to Brown that his defenses regressed so badly? I was encouraged by the D effort. Hope springs…

100 percent agree. Also 3 perfectly executed screen passes on offense. Feels like its been a long time since we've seen that.

I was also encouraged, but I've been burned by this in the past. I'm still hesitant but cautiously optimistic.

it was western. people like to get way ahead of their skis. I will not be making any comments until after the Wisc game. Way too early to start talking about competence IMO.

It was just one game and against Western, but in the previous three seasons Michigan’s D was bad, bad, bad against everyone. This game encouraged, that’s all I’m saying.

I think early on in this new Defensive regime I'm going to go against my own rule and only watch stats. In the past I would watch the plays more than the stats to base my opinion on performance but for the first half of this year I'm going to base the majority of my opinion on stats.

IMO Western didn't seem to have any explosive players and even though they didn't have a play over 30 yds UM still gave up almost 4 yds per rush and nearly 200 yds in the air.

Two other stats jumped out at me.

1) zero forced turnovers.
2) 1 sack

It was Western, the D needs to do better.

Anyone remember Giles Jackson? He comes back to Ann Arbor next week. He's the type of player that in the past has given UM fits. He's going to have a lot to prove and he's going to want to have a big game. That's worrisome.

the receiver that was hurting Michigan early got injured . he Defense is better but still needs to improve this was Western Michigan not MSU who looked pretty good by the way. Worried about the Bell injury, Hope somebody can step up/
