Michigan is a school of traditions; we all know this. We're on the cusp of a football season that will radically change the look of the football program that many of us grew up spectating. What is the possibility that the coffers-that-be have maybe nudged RR into establishing spread with pocket-presence as the new Michigan instead of spread-n-shred? I mean, we're all excitedly discussing an offense that will DRASTICALLY change the look, feel, and aura of Michigan football. Since RR's arrival, I hadn't really thought about the checks and balances on his ability to do that. I just have a hunch that Michigan won't be looking for the Russell Shepherds as much as they will be recruiting the Tate Forciers and next Steve Youngs of HS talent. I think the coffers want to see a spread reminiscent of Michigan vs. Florida on a weekly basis more than they do field chaos and the West Virginia Pat White system. Michigan Football has to know where its money comes from, and its not from people who grew up watching the spread. Plus, like someone else said, RR has not historically gotten his QBs NFL ready...but Michigan has. That's another tradition that I don't think the Michigan coffers want to see die. Newsome is going to VT in my opinion, to follow in their tradition of Michael Vick. It's going to be Tate and Beav for U-M.
landing spot. will be interesting to see how he does.
