Ok, I was watching Michigan lose their first game of the season, and I was ok with it.
However, then the dumb idiots for announcers said "Utah has pulled a huge upset" and I was like "WHAT!?!?!?!?!"
So I am here to tell why it is NOT a big upset for the Utes.
The spread offense is an offense which is run by Utah. So they know how to defend it and they have been using it for many years too. So they are comfortable with it in knowing the transitions and whatnot.
Michigan on the other hand is very new to this and don't have the correct formula in their offense yet. So how would their offense not being the greatest today be a shocker to anyone that knows college football?
Utah knew the spread, and the players on Michigan were going to have a hard time with it.
Also, the defense from Michigan stepped up in the 2nd half allowing them to under 100 total yards and just a field goal.
So after all of that, how can you say that a team that has known the spread for years, has the correct formula on offense, and a defense that knows how to stop the spread is a lower-graded team from a team that has it's 1st year in the spread offense, doesn't have the correct formula and the defense is starting to do well late?
Well, you can't. I think the announcer was wrong...
That was my random thought on it.
