I miss the space emperor
So Zoltan Mesko has decided to take a break from ruling everything in existence, and has decided to vacation in Jamaica for a little bit. With who you might ask?
Oh just these lovely ladies...
From his Twitter:
No this probably isn't very topic worthy, but I figured with all of the PSU stuff we could use a little positive news regarding something Michigan
So, Zoltan is apparently doing what we all knew he would do in the NFL (dominate as only a punter can), and it looks like the national media has adopted Mr. Mesko's Michigan moniker: Space Emperor of Space, obvs.
I'm definitely not as football saavy as a decent chunk of the posters on this board, but I had an idea and felt compelled to share it. As Tate Forcier is our #2 punter and we already used his skills to great effect last year, you know RR is dreaming up something like the following:
Any time we face forth down and anything reasonable (say, 10 yards or fewer) from our own 40 to our opponents 40, I feel we should run the Tate Forcier Quintiple Option (henceforth, TFQO).
The play would look something like this:
3 Wide-receiver set (1 WR left, 1 SR and 1 WR right), TE Right, Superback.
On the snap the TE helps the RT get outside position on the DE, then goes out 5-10 yards, and drags out. The Slot stays in to help blocks whoever comes first (MLB, Nickel, or blitzing safety). The WR right runs a 15-yard out. Tate and the Superback run an option right. Tate can either A) hit the dragging TE, B) hit the WR on the fly/15 yard out, C) run for it, D) pitch the option, or E) punt. Granted it won't be a great punt on the run, but there won't be anyone to receive it and he should get at least 30 yards with a roll. Left WR gets down the field to cover the punt in case a plucky safety wants it. This WR should be Cam Gordon.
Assuming a 4-2-5 defense with the right side MLB being responsible to flow to the C/D gap where Tate will be, a few things could happen. Slot receiver picks up the MLB, and Tate reads the Nickel as to whether to run the option or hit the dragging TE. If the corner comes up in run support, the right WR is wide open. Worst comes to worst, Tate can either pitch to the superback who should have a full head of steam and either an SS or a CB to beat, or Tate punts if nothing's there.
Someone get me on the QC staff at UM (kidding, we all know they won't be helping to coach for a few years). Thoughts? I feel like Magnus should be able to tear this apart.
