Live chat: Penn State 35, Michigan 10 (FINAL)

This was a VERY discouraging and demoralizing loss. I really expected a better effort from Michigan. It was really a step backward for the team - especially the offense. Specifically, Tate Forcier is not getting better and may be even regressing. He can't pass the ball with any consistency. It seems like he's always trying to improvise on his passes and make something happen, rather than having a set route and play. This is very hard to do as a true freshman. I think the coaches need to come up with a better strategy to help Tate succeed. The defense simply lacks talent at too many positions. This will take time. Penn State receivers were catching the ball with no one even close to them. Our linebacking is awful most of the time, and outside of Brandon Graham and occasionally freshman Craig Roh, the D-line isn't getting it done. I can't think of any positives to take away fromt this game, and that's sad. Our rebuilding effort may be a bit further out than we all thought.
