"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
Did you guys know there's a water park in Battle Creek?
We all know that a win over Penn State and an Ohio win over Michigan State will result in a three-way tie for the regular season. In this situation, all 3 teams are 1-1 against each other so head-to-head won't solve the tiebraker. What other factors will detemine the seeding?
We really could use the 1 or 2 seed. A quick look at the B1G standings reveals the 5 and 6 teams are Indiana and Purdue (both teams we split with), who play Sunday in Bloomington to determine the order. It would obviously be preferable to have an easier first game against the likes of Iowa, Northwestern, Illinois, or Minnesota.
How long is Beilein and how do we keep him here? I know that he has said that he wants to stay here, but his stock has never been higher. So do you think that we will be able to keep him and how can we ensure that we do?
Great seeing Denard representing Michigan: he was seen at Yost on Fri for the hockey game.
From campofchamps.com, here's a useful set of webpages showing Beilein's set offense. It's from 2008 but it's all still recognizable.
I've included the opening diagram underneath each link to help keep them straight.
Ed.: looks like my attempts to copy the opening diagram of each set didn't take.
