08:32 AM ET 10.30 | By the most important measure, the Wolverines' offensive backfield is trending down. Michigan tailbacks had accounted for 1,081 yards by this time last year. This year: 660 yards, a 39 percent free fall despite receiving only 12 fewer carries than at this time last season. ... [Fitz Toussaint] is averaging 3.3 yards per carry on the season. He eclipsed that threshold in all but two games last year, finishing at 5.6 yards per carry. Coach Brady Hoke and offensive coordinator Al Borges said backup Thomas Rawls had earned the right for more carries after rushing nine times for 90 yards three weeks ago against Illinois. He hasn't received a carry since. ... "We need to finish blocks -- period," Hoke said.

We lost a good man in the Bama family yesterday. Lt. Colonel Michael Rorex. Please let's not make this political. Let's just understand he fought for what he believed in.

Coach Hoke third season mid way through and Big Blue is a 3 loss team, with NW, IOWA, and OSU still ahead. Your going the wrong way.
