Michigan was eager for salvation following the loss of Notre Dame in the season opener.
Prior to winning their home win over Western Michigan last Saturday, the Wolverines were criticized by fans, the media, and even former recipient Braylon Edwards, who suffered on social media.
A 49-3 defeat of Western Michigan at the Big House has calmed down the critics of coach Jim Harbaugh – at least for the moment.
No. 19 Michigan (1-1), who moved up two places from last week's Associated Press poll, will seek another slanted victory in hosting Southern Methodists (0-2) on Saturday afternoon in Ann Arbor ,
"The execution was better," Harbaugh said on Monday, comparing the two games. "There were things that were outstanding."
Week 3 tips and predictions
The dominating performance against Western Michigan (0-2) also made for a better mood. The Michigan offensive ran for 308 yards and three touchdowns, transfer quarterback Shea Patterson (Shea Patterson) counted 125 passing yards and three TDs, and the defense of the Wolverines almost threw a shutout.
"After a defeat, especially one as tough as Notre Dame, there is a lot of anger," said Jordan Glasgow, who plays the team's hybrid Viper position. "Just as we did, it's a confidence boost, and we have the urge to continue to improve."
Receiver was a position group that showed their potential. Patterson's 44-yard scoring pass to Nico Collins in the second quarter marked the first touchdown of a Wolverines receiver in 364 days.
"The recipients are doing things that recipients need to do," Harbaugh said. "Make space first, then get clear, then catch the ball, you do it with a choice of different routes, we feel good as they go up."
Michigan's offensive line, which received harsh criticism following the loss of Notre Dame, also played off Western Michigan much better. Left-back Ben Bredeson was voted offensive player of the week.
"Keep improving, that's our attitude," Harbaugh said. "Three hundred meters rushing, plus the passport protection Yes, you see a good improvement."
Michigan should have another chance to defend against the SMU, who lost their season opener to North Texas (46-23) and lost to the TCU (42-12) last weekend.
"They really look back with a fine comb and see," Did we do what we should do in every game? "Backup offensive lineman Stephen Spanellis said," It's less about the results and more about the process. "
Big wins, like the Western Michigan game, allow the wolverines to create depth by playing longer than normal reserves.
"In this last game, 74 players have played," said Harbaugh. "Of those, 18 have begun their career as a walk-on."
