Nussmeier's offense slow to progress at Michigan

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- Doug Nussmeier's offense has fallen well short of expectations at Michigan. When Nussmeier was hired away from Alabama to be the Wolverines' offensive coordinator before the season, Michigan moved on from Al Borges' West Coast offense and installed a pro-style system that emphasized power football.
