Coach BT not only knows FOOTBALL but also POSTS about FOOTBALL giving EPINION. Today he posted behind the Scout paywall at:
A couple general thoughts so as to not take FOOD off TABLE of BT:
You can expect the tight ends to be very involved in the offense. Koger and Webb were two of the three best players on the field this spring (the third? B.Graham). The two of them are moved all over the place (on the line, in the slot, in the backfield).
Plus, the coaches met with Missouri in 2008 (Chase Coffman?) and Oklahoma in 2009 (Jermaine Gresham) to work on using the TEs in the spread.
TEs were used almost 3x as much this year in spring as in 2008.
In the 2008 offense UFRs I reviewed in critiquing Martavious Odoms last month, Brian repeatedly wrote that Koger was wide open and Threet or Sheridan simply missed throwing him the ball. The kid is a beast.
I would expect in the first few games that the passing game is going to center on short crossing patterns, getting Koger in space, and using Roundtree/Stonum? as deep threats.
The more I read about the offense, if these guys stay healthy and Tate is just average (55% completion percentage, minimal INTs), I think we're going to be blown away by the diversity, speed, and unpredictability of the Michigan offense. It will be unlike any offense we've seen at the Big House.
