Rivals ranks receiving units for '11:
The state is well-represented. Not sure I agree with the placement, but preseason rankings are designed to spur discussion, so have at it.
The Michigan Monday at O-Zone yesterday said that Denard was only passing to primary receivers. Obviously, on a beautiful play action pass where Roundtree is wide open and scores a TD, that makes sense. Won't work so well against a lockdown defensive secondary.
I am not football savvy enough to know how to tell who is the primary receiver, and who is secondary. When Roundtree and Tay Odoms and Koger and Hemingway are all lined up, what gives away who is the primary receiver? I'm sure that if Denard uses all his receivers, it will open up the field even more. Is this just a case of the game getting slower and slower for Denard, as he gains experience?
I do think our OL has done a great job, and is responsible for a lot of our success this year.
