Harbaugh, Michigan regroup after opening loss

In the eight months since Jim Harbaugh returned to Ann Arbor, Michigan fans have eagerly awaited his hard-nosed, physical brand of football.

After one game, it is clear Harbaugh has his work cut out for him.

The Wolverines managed just 76 yards rushing on 29 carries during a 24-17 loss at Utah last Thursday night, led by De'Veon Smith's 47 yards on 17 attempts. The offense did not record a run longer than 7 yards.

The lack of a consistent run game was one of the biggest criticisms under Brady Hoke, who was fired after four years, including a 5-7 record in 2014.
