Ronnie Bell HAS to catch that. Starting to think this guy might be another Breaston. Great athlete, piss poor WR that can’t catch the damn ball.
Bell has been terrible. He hesitated on that route. That actually wasn’t Patterson’s fault.

He gets open with ease and he’s clearly a terrific athlete, but he kinda stinks at WR.

Bucks with some goofy play to end what should have been a scoring drive

That felt like a bad pass -- barely too much on it to catch Bell in stride, means that they could have had the reception easy if it had been weakarmed by 5 fewer yards. But yes, Bell is struggling with highlight catches. Not the worst thing, but not an all-star thing, either.

Hmm, that was obviously a TD. Dumb.

Michigan may struggle on rush D this year, but the performance of a 3 DE front against a triple option isn't the time for evaluation.
They struggled the last handful of games last year.

The stat I saw going into this week was that over their past 6 games they were #80 in the FBS in rushing yards allowed per game

Christian Turner whiffed on the blitz pick -up. Not exactly Patterson’s fault but MAN he has to stop turning it over. Charbonnet should’ve been in there. He’d have picked that blitz up.

Shouldn’t have even come to this. This is DUMB as hell. Metellus scored a freaking TD.

I don’t know. They struggled in every aspect of defense against Ohio State and they basically just quit against Florida.

You're ... doubling down? Gary and Bush sat out versus Florida, and Dwumfour was injured. After holding MTSU to 2.4 YPC, that shrinks the "last year until now" streak to the OSU game on an island. Granted, that was one very bad game.

Bearcats with a drive, but OSU blocks the field goal.

Now that was a bad mistake by Ronnie Bell. I'll fogive him for the hand-hitting non-catches (given the level of difficulty, I don't want to call them drops). But that STs gaffe drops his stock worse than the highlight catch misses.

Worse yet ... the team doesn't even need to play him. There are 3-4 better players at both WR and returner.

I gave the stat I saw, #80 over their previous six games going into this week.
