Five takeaways from Michigan's loss to Penn State


Wow that video by Eric Shapiro is very telling and clearly shows that UM has problems on defense. I can understand Wagner losing his man or not switching properly, but when Simpson doesn’t go out on a shooter is terrible for a senior. In reality his defense has went down this year.

I don’t know if this is the case with Simpson’s defense, but it’s common in sports to make more mistakes and blow your own assignments when you are focused on helping/correcting your teammates.

Also, wasn’t Teske stripped at the top of the key when he was trying to direct traffic, or am I misremembering that?

I read a lot of negative comments from fans complaining about the recent results, the players and the coach. I think we need to take a deep breath here. I think they are doing the best they can in the face of clear roster limitations (especially without Livers) and an almost historically challenging Big Ten. Bailing on a team that has given us so much in the last few years is not a great look. I think Juwan is doing an excellent job. It might be frustrating but I will be watching every game for the rest of the year with enjoyment and hope for improvement.


yep. You can see him trying to direct traffic in the first clip in this post.
