I agree with some others who posted that our pass rush will be the biggest key to victory.
Even when BooBoo plays soft coverage he is giving up big plays downfield. IME if you're playing soft corners and dropping 8 DB's and still giving up big passing plays, you might as well blitz numbers and play press coverage on the corners in the hope you can force quick decisions or disrupt timing. You might even sack the qb or force an interception. The downside is that there is a possiblity an accurate downfield throw could go for 6 points. But with the way our defense has been playing and giving up copious points anyway, I would risk giving up the big play for the possibility of making some big plays of our own. I also think that BooBoo is better suited for press coverage. I thought I remembered his recruiting profile describing him as a "press demon".
"He makes it really easy on you as a coach because he has tremendous football instincts," Michigan tight ends coach Jay Harbaugh said. "Things come really naturally to him. He doesn't have to see things too many times. He has a good sense for how things should look and feel, and he's a tough, physical guy."
