Michigan leads Iowa at the break, 10-3, but the Wolverines have been struggling on offense yet again. Fans are starting to lose faith in starting quarterback Shea Patterson.
Patterson has gotten a lot of the blame for the team’s offensive issues this season. His stat line against the Hawkeyes in the first half isn’t doing much to change anyone’s mind.
Through two quarters, Patterson is 8-of-16 for 93 yards with an interception. He’s also been sacked a few times.
Michigan’s defense has kept it in the game. The Wolverines have caused three turnovers and held the Hawkeyes to just three points.
Patterson likely won’t be benched at halftime – especially considering backup Dylan McCaffrey isn’t playing because of a concussion two weeks ago. But fans aren’t liking what they’re seeing.
Shea Patterson kills Michigan. He’s awful. BENCH HIM! #GoBlue

Shea Patterson has little to no situational awareness. I’ve never understood why people think he was a stud QB at Ole Miss.

Shea Patterson has been a pure dissapointment at Michigan

I think I’m done with the Shea Patterson experience

Michigan needs a win against Iowa to keep pace in the Big Ten. The second half should be a dogfight.
The second half should be underway soon. The game is being broadcast on FOX.
