It was a nail-biter, but the Wolverines were able to survive a near-disaster on Saturday at the Big House in Ann Arbor.
Michigan narrowly defeated Army by a 24-21 score in overtime. But a sloppy offensive performance combined with some puzzling play calls really got the attention of fans and media alike. Take a look at a few examples of the immediate reaction:
Still gobsmacked by that Harbaugh decision. You can take the lead in the final 10 minutes with a 36-yard FG and put all the pressure on Army. Or not. https://t.co/GWwmbqb0k0

Harbaugh temporarily bailed out. He’s been outcoached by a mile today.

I’m just gonna say it, I hope Harbaugh is at Michigan forever.

Fans that are saying it’s only week 2 are the same fans that are okay with going 10-2 or 9-3 every year with losing to Ohio State and losing our bowl game. Reality check Michigan fans, something isn’t working under Harbaugh.

Michigan’s new spread offense has Zach Charbonnet go 33 carries for 100 yards and 3 TD. 45 carries for 108 yards as a team. Riveting stuff. Couldn’t take my eyes off it.
