ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan fans came away from Saturday's loss to Ohio State with one major question on their minds -- what happened in the second half? Why did the Wolverines abandon the two-quarterback offense that had been so successful against Iowa? Why did Denard Robinson spend so much time at quarterback if he couldn't throw the ball? And, most baffling, why didn't Robinson -- one of the most explosive players in school history -- touch the ball in the final 12 minutes of a one-score game? Monday, at his weekly press conference, Brady Hoke didn't provide straightforward answers to any of those questions. With offensive coordinator Al Borges not meeting with the media this week and Hoke only making Monday's appearance, the answers may remain a permanent mystery. The only complete explanation Hoke gave was why Robinson never threw a pass, despite both he and his coach saying his elbow injury allowed him to do so. "He wasn't as confident as he w...

Michigan falls in Columbus, loses 26-21

The Michigan Wolverines had an opportunity to beat the Ohio State Buckeyes for the second consecutive year but couldn’t get it done. The Wolverines had a halftime 21-20 lead but unfortunately in the second half the conservative play-calling and missed opportunities along with some defense that was less than stellar allowed the Buckeyes to dominate the half and earn a 26-21 victory...

Even after a loss, we're still Michigan!

The bad news is our offense stalled in the 2nd half in Columbus and we lost a 26-21 contest with Ohio State that we could have won, should have won.  Could have and should have are phrases more suited to humans than to Wolverines.  What did happen happened.  What “could have happened” and “should have happened” did not happen and it never will happen because the game is...

MMQ still doesn’t know what Borges was thinking

It has been already been said by a number of people, so I won’t spend a lot of time on this. Something about losing to Ohio State doesn’t make me real interested in talking Michigan football. But I suppose it’s necessary to some degree, so here we go. In my opinion, the Michigan coaching staff’s record against OSU is as follows: Brady Hoke and everyone except Al Borges: 1...

The Wolverines took a 21-20 lead into halftime, but were unable to even penetrate into Ohio State territory in the second half.
