1. Offensive line getting more of a push
After watching the game on Friday, I came away disappointed with the offensive line, especially since it was supposed to be a strength for the Spartans this season.
After re-watching, I was still slightly disappointed.
Noah Kim was scrambling a lot but was never sacked because of his elusiveness and the run game didn’t have as many gaping holes as I would’ve hoped and expected.
Outside of Nathan Carter’s 31-yard run to open the game, the Spartans had just 96 rushing yards on 30 carries which just isn’t going to cut it. That can’t happen against a team like Central Michigan and needs to be fixed moving forward. Against Big Ten teams, that’s going to be disastrous.
The run game should be a strength moving forward and I want to see the offensive line assert some dominance against Richmond like it should.
I want to feel good about the line heading into Week 3.
