Josh Gattis was hyped to be the savior of Michigan's offense when Jim Harbaugh hired him away from Alabama this past season. The Wolverines' offense had struggled in big games during the Harbaugh era. Gattis was going to change that.

So far this season, though, that has not happened - far from it, really.

Michigan's offense struggled in early-season wins against Middle Tennessee and Army. The Wolverines then got blown out at Wisconsin.

Quarterback Shea Patterson hasn't looked like the dual-threat quarterback threat many expected him to be. Michigan's run game was non-existent against the Badgers.

Gattis has decided to make a change before today's game. He'll be moving down to the field.

We'll see if that changes anything for the better as far as the offense is concerned.

Michigan's offense better look improved today. The Wolverines are hosting lowly Rutgers in Ann Arbor.

Kickoff is set for noon E.T. on BTN.
