So I was sitting in a restaurant tonight and this group of 40-50 year olds(can't tell age) were standing there talking about Michigan.
Now normally they discuss how Rodriguez needs time and how he "Didn't have his QB's" as their excuse to this past season. But tonight, I heard them remark (one of the women, mind you) -
"Oh they fired their defensive coordinator"
"Well they're going to run this 3-3-5, it's terrible"
"Yes they're going to get shredded this year".
Seriously? When did any form of defense become more useful or efficient than another. And when did people become so uninformed? Especially Michigan fans. With all this garbage people have been regularly complaining to me how the 3-3-5 "sucks" and how we're doomed.
What evidence is there for it? We played a team in high school that ran it and we lit them up. Only a handful of college teams run it because it's more complex/less effective? I need some reasoning here, aside from the fact that a few shitty schools (Tulsa, Ball State) run it. Why is there this conception that it's so bad?
