What would you want the first play of our opening drive against Utah to be? A trick play? A deep pass? #20 to the left? Something entirely different?
here's one vote for "John Beilein's head in a Futurama jar"
QB zone read run keeper to the left for five yards, followed by a sack.
I still think it would be awesome if we ran a typical I-formation, zone read left as a tribute to old times... then run in subs for the fb extra te, get up to the ball quick, and in with the new.
punt. the ole quickick. worked for yost as well as in the snowbowl in '50.
Vegas is going to have all sorts of bets on what Michigan's first offensive play will be. Curious what they will put out for betting. Zone read left would be a funny tribute.
I want to see how many people in the stands get the irony of the call. After that, no holds barred.
Instead, in homage to Ryan Mallett, it will be a fumble.
Hand-off to McGuffie, then have him do a front flip over the O-line. If he gets anywhere after that, cool, but I just want the flip.
How about something crazy that Carr would never run, something like an option to Carlos Brown who throws it to Matthews who takes it in for 6, like a 70 yard play. Now that would be fun. GO BLUE!
never ran by Carr, why not an end around to Arrington off a play action to Hart followed with Arrington throwing for the endzone to Manningham. Carr would never do that, would he?
DFRowe - you must be too young to remember Charles Woodson and Marquise Walker throwing TD passes?
And Jake Long was the target of a pass in the Capital One bowl. It would have been fun to see him running with the ball if he had caught that.
Or Breaston throwing a TD to Navarre.

Nothing like starting the game out with a play that takes 5 minutes to develop.
