McElwain Notebook: Moving on from MI, key injuries, Franks to start

McElwain Notebook: Moving on from MI, key injuries, Franks to start”

Thompson said Tuesday he believes the coaching staff abandoned the running game too early against the Wolverines and the struggling offense would benefit from staying committed to their plan moving forward.

"Put the ire towards me, I mean, I'm the one responsible for it", McElwain said. "We've got this week of practice and then the game and then we'll evaluate after that". "You keep going until you get where it works".

"Our defense was wonderful, " coach Jim Harbaugh said. But McElwain said there's no new information on the nine others, including standout receiver Antonio Callaway and leading rusher Jordan Scarlett, who are suspended indefinitely for their roles in an alleged credit card fraud scheme. Zaire was 9 of 17 for 106 yards but was sacked five times.

Currently, Cincinnati is 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 after gaining less than 100 rushing yards in their previous game, 2-6 in their last 8 games following an ATS loss, 1-5 in their last 6 games overall, and 0-6 in their last 6 games after allowing more than 200 rushing yards from their previous game.

In short, the Gators were stone-walled by MI.

The Florida Gators' football schedule is tough as a whole with games against Tennessee, Georgia and LSU annually along with a bunch of other Southeastern Conference opponents.

"Both guys did some good things and both guys did some things they obviously want back", McElwain said. "And that sure as heck is what happened".

With at least one more opportunity to face the Seminoles - an SEC Championship Game matchup with the Crimson Tide is far from a sure thing - McElwain has almost a dozen games to fix what has ailed the Gators against their toughest competition.

But Thompson, a redshirt senior, said he isn't discouraged by the effort and hopes his coaches aren't either.

Thompson remains confident in his offensive line, saying, "I love them boys". I tell them that every day.

And he insists the ground game wasn't far from busting loose, pointing to his 47-yard touchdown run that was called back due to a holding penalty late in the second quarter. "Those things need getting called".

For Northern Colorado, junior quarterback Jacob Knipp helped the Bears score 28 first-quarter points en route to their easy victory last week.

The Bears gave up 215 rushing yards to NAIA opponent College of Idaho last week and won't be almost as physical or athletic as Michigan's defensive front.

In 2015, FSU shut out Florida for three quarters and the Gators only scored via safety in a 27-2 loss.
