This is a break from your normally scheduled CC programming...
This goes out to better football minds on this board.
What makes Urban Meyer's offense so QB friendly? It seems that no matter who they put back there, they will pass for 200 and run for 100 and score a boatload of touchdowns.
I understand that spread is very effective in general, but other spread schools have ups and downs with various QB's. It seems Ohio is almost immune to whoever is quaterbacking the team. Obviously, this means that the QB reads are very simple and the routes/scheme is getting wide receivers wide open. Exactly, how does he do it?
P.S. If you are looking for a coach in NFL, wouldn't you at least give a call to Urbz to see if he is interested? Chip Kelly has proven that this system can win with crappy quarterbacks (re: Sanchize). Hell, Urbz won National Championship with Tebow (and we now all know how good he is at throwing the ball)! If I am an NFL owner with an open head coaching job, Urbz would be the first one I would call.
P.P.S. If Ross steered Harbaugh to Michigan and hired Urbz from Ohio, we should build his statue right next to Bo's.
Now you may resume with HARBAUGH!!!
An article from Fox Sports CFB AM about the coaching search.
Roughly 6 paragraphs down, sources are mentioned regarding to coaching search information:
" MGoBlog, a respected Michigan source on the Web, is saying that things are in motion between the two sides."
Not that people around the country weren't familar with the blog before this but still pretty cool for the blog to be mentioned in a such a postive way just prior to a mention of the Detroit News.
Now that Dave Satterfield and Hunter Lochmann are gone, it seems like Hackett is serious about changing the culture from making money to winning. Are there any other Brandon era employees that are bringing the department down that you'd like to see replaced?
The majority of Pitt fans seem to be very on board with the possibility of this hire, and I agree, it would be a good hire for them. Of course, a lot of us here on MGo can breathe a sigh of relief, as I believe most of us thought of Schiano as a desperation we-have-no-one-else hire. For Pitt it honestly could work.
LET US NOW SAY NICE THINGS ABOUT SCHIANO TO PITT TO ENSURE TO THE FOOTBALL DEITIES THAT IT HAPPENS
Yesterday I was 60-40 that Harbaugh was coming to A2. After talking to sources, I was told to move that to 90-10! Too big of a jump but ... — The Michigan Insider (@michiganinsider) December 17, 2014
