On Friday afternoon, former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer made an appearance on the Herd with Colin Cowherd to break down the weekend’s college football action.
During his time on the show, Cowherd asked Meyer about Michigan’s offense.
The host said he’s backed Jim Harbaugh for years, but wants to know how to fix the Wolverines’ poor offensive showings in back-to-back weeks.
“We said this in the preseason that when you change offenses and from my understanding when you watch them it’s a drastic change – it’s takes a moment to get going. Yeah it’s been very disappointing and Shea Patterson the one fumble was inexcusable…Don’t give up on this offense, in Donovan Peoples-Jones gets back that’s a big time weapon. But that have to start doing what they said they were going to be doing and that’s playing in space,” Meyer said about the Michigan offense.
Meyer went on to say the team needs to put its athletes in space – namely the wide receivers.
Last week’s game against Army was used as an example of poor play-calling from Michigan. The Wolverines did not take advantage of the mismatch they had on the perimeter, according to Meyer.
Michigan gets the week off before a huge road game against Wisconsin.
