so much for that
Dr. Spreadlove - How I learned to stop worrying and love the spread.....
BYU is one of the biggest games on UTAHS schedule every year. So I
thought I'd look into what BYU was doing with their spread. I think BYU
comes in around 14-17 in preseason rankings. Preseason polls being so
accurate and all. This article touches on the perceptions of the Tight
End and the spread offense.
had the,"good fortune," of hearing a Bobby Petrino lecture or two in my
life. No I was not affiliated with the Louisville football program.
Some friend of mine dragged me to a clinic in Vegas where Petrino was
doing his spiel. He likes to swear alot and then when he's done
swearing, he likes to talk about his dad. Then he likes to swear some
more. Then he starts in on his little brother with some cuss words,
who must also coach football for Bobby. Justin Boren would not like
Bobby Petrino's core values. But Ryan Mallett will! Dems two peas in a
pod! As a Wolverine fan, I am glad we landed Rich. Anyhow, I do not get
Mallett's choice or decision to leave and go play football at Arkansas. Perhaps Petrino was
landed after Mallett made his mind up, but I do not know. Like Boren, I think Mallett just
transfered to be close to home. Perhaps for different reasons though. One for mama's home cooking and the other for more nefarious reasons that involve water sports where smoke is inhaled. But anyhow, like the articles above state, Petrino
runs a similar offense to Rich. All in all, after watching minor
amounts of film on WV, PITT, and LOUISVILLE, I am glad we
landed Rich over Teflon Bob, Sir Greg, and Nosey Dave.
Building the perfect beast. Michigan
provides quite a lab for Rich to build the perfect beast in regards to
the spread offense. Personally I think that is one of the reasons why
he took the job here at UofM. He wanted a new creative window to keep himself
interested. When I see how BYU uses the TE, and how Rich used Pat White
and Steve Slaton. And then combine that with what I know of Michigan
Football. I see the recipe for building the perfect beast.
