The Michigan-Iowa game was your classic Big Ten matchup. It was the type of contest where you can’t figure out if it’s two really good defenses or two really bad offenses. In the end, probably a little bit of both.
A win is a win. But Michigan still has so many offensive issues to sort out. The abysmal 10-point showing has fans worried about how things will play out the rest of this season.
After the game, UM head coach Jim Harbaugh spoke to the media. It appears he’s not very worried about the offense despite today’s poor showing.
Harbaugh: i really think we're hitting our stride (offensively)

Probably not what Michigan fans want to hear. The Wolverines offense produced just 267 total yards on Saturday against the Hawkeyes. It appears the Michigan offense is heading in the wrong direction too. The Wolverines’ 10 points is their lowest point total of the season so far.
😳 wtf game was he watching Sam lol. Bottom line: I’m happy we came out with the W against the #14 team and our D. But our Offense is not good.

So where does the Michigan offense go from here? Many have called for a quarterback change. Shea Patterson has not played well this season. The UM QB has thrown just six touchdowns through five games to go along with three interceptions. Patterson’s been inconsistent to say the least.
Will Harbaugh and the Wolverines make any changes to the offense moving forward?
