Fourth down and short in Michigan territory with time running out in the first half, Michigan punted. Despite the incessant ‘Goooo!’ calls from the crowd on any 4th-and-short situation, Rodriguez correctly chose to punt.
Question: what happened to the roll-out option punt that Michigan used very effectively last season? We heard hints that Rodriguez might use Mesko more creatively this season but we haven’t seen it thus far through three games. Wouldn’t that have been the perfect time for Zoltan to do the roll-out, take a peek and possibly go?
