David Pollack: Don't go 'all-in' on Michigan's offense
College football analyst David Pollack still isn’t a believer in the Wolverines — at least not yet.
On an episode of CFB Podcast with Herbie, Pollack and Negandhi this week, Pollack expressed some doubt over Jim Harbaugh’s squad despite their dominate victory over Minnesota.
Pollack cited a few fortunate breaks for Michigan, including a scoop-and-score in the first quarter and several special teams mistakes by the Gophers. He’s also not yet convinced by quarterback Joe Milton.
“If you’re all in and you’re buying Michigan’s stock, I would put this as a ‘hold.’ I would not buy all-in Michigan stock,” Pollack said. “They had a scoop and score after a sack touchdown. They had a kick return inside the 10 which set up a touchdown. Minnesota faked a punt. Minnesota didn’t have a kicker and they were pooching and it was awful field position.
“I don’t know enough about Joe [Milton] yet playing quarterback. I think he had 10 drop backs. He didn’t have to do a whole lot. It was an easy situation for him … I think they have some more playmakers, but I’m not buying and going all in on their offense just yet.”
Pollack is one of the few college football analysts who are asking to see more from the Wolverines. FOX analyst Joel Klatt said Wednesday that the Wolverines have “turned the corner” offensively.
Michigan will get a chance to earn Pollack’s trust on Saturday at 12 p.m. ET as it hosts Michigan State.
