"It's a lot easier being a drug dealer than an AAU coach" - this guy. Tell me something I don't know. I mean, don't think but have never tried either.
No, this is not another stoopid "lets have Lewan and Robinson line up in backfield as QB and put Denard at slot..." threads. I have a trick play guaranteed to work for the OSU game...and it has nothing to do with the offense.
Let's play 17 people on defense. We could have 4 linemen, 4 linebackers, 3 deep safeties and 6 cb (over-under double of all their receivers). I think we could hold them to few enough points to mak the game interesting.
I've been thinking about Michigan's use of trick plays (and lack thereof) this season and couldn't help wonder whether Rodriguez is keeping something under wraps for the Ohio State game. Part of me wants to see some kind of unique formation and/or play but, on the other hand, I'm always apprehensive about plays that have below-average success rates.
Do most coaches generally have one or two trick plays in their playbook that can be called in any given game? Does Michigan even need a trick play given that the offense has shown the ability to move the ball against pretty much every defense so far this year?
