TO THE HOT TAKE CANNON
I am rewatching the Ohio game again because why not? While watching, I had to listen to Speilman whine about putting DG in as the QB. While it was annoying, it did bring about an idea. That idea:
What will bringing DG into the huddle (along with Robinson) do to DCs this year? Last year, we used DG for gimmick plays: end-arounds, screens, etc. However, this upcoming year we might bring him into the huddle as a WR which means we're just running our normal plays.
What do you guys think this'll do to DCs? When they send in the play after seeing the huddle, do they call different plays for our screens-and-such or does this not really matter? Does this play games with the DC's head which could lead to holes in the defense which D-Rob could exploit?
I never really thought about it that way, but TBH, we could bring him into the huddle as a QB again. So what do you guys think?
If you don't have time to watch the whole preview, scroll down for clips of Hoke, Mattison, Borges, Denard, Kovacs and Lewan.
EDIT: I added the FS Detroit preview and changed the title.

OT ESPN Interview of RichRod Offensive Philosophy: Fast break, Urban Meyer, Northwestern vs Michigan & Denard
I can remember Urban [Meyer], when he first got the Bowling Green job, we were at a coaches convention hospitality bar. He told me, ‘I’d like to run some of your offense.’ So he sent his whole staff for a week, we traded some ideas and so we always traded ideas.
