no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
Watching Oregon and Auburn's offense had led me to question why Michigan does not motion anyone before the snap. Now I am reading, from Brian, that MissSt also runs quite a bit of motion before the snap, which ties into their somewhat pistol offense.
When comparing the mis-direction and options available, as shown by Oregon and Auburn, and the stagnant backfield from Michigan, it seems as if there is opportunity there for us that we are not taking. If we are a team of smaller-sized speedsters, compared to the rest of the Big Ten (arguable), then why are we not taking advantage of this by getting that jump and throwing off the defense with mis-direction.
It seems to me that with only the zone read that good defenses can maintain assignment and contain us more so than if we use mis-direction and pre-snap motion.
Please someone smarter than me tell me why we do not do this...
I made my first donation to beveled guilt this morning and LOOK WHAT HAPPENED! Obviously there is DIRECT CORRELATION!
So I suggest that each poster on this site donate as I did and some more good things are bound to happen for the Maize and Blue.
Moving away from the growing RR to FL threads. With Urban leaving UF, are there any UF recruits that might be open to coming up north with Dee and Dallas?
Why not? With all the crap that he's been through. No coach should have to go through what RR has gone through at Michigan. I'll guarantee you that if RR would go to Florida they would beat the crap out of everybody. He would be able to recruit just about anybody he needs for a spread offense there. If he does get fired and goes to Florida I'll laugh because Michigan will have made the biggest worst coaching job decision ever.
So the speculation has begun. I am listening to Sean and Terp on ESPN 96.1 here on the west-side of the state and they are already going into Urban Meyer coming to Michigan...
Someone just make it stop...
