We're 100 days out so this is filler, but it's brief. And what the hell else are we going to talk about? I'm posting primarily due to the comment made by Cunningham (who I remember being a pretty terrible announcer last year) re. the offense in 2013.
There seemed to be a disconnect on the offensive staff... what you watched on film was not what they thought was going on. So I thought that was a good change by Brady Hoke (Nuss hire).
With apologies to all for bringing the topic up again, this offhand statement seems a powerful indictment of the offensive staff. An announcer's opinion is worth whatever value you give it, but they do meet with the coordinators during game weeks to prep for the broadcast. Maybe it's hindsight, but it gives me the impression that they walked out of the film room thinking "these guys don't even know what they're seeing." If anywhere near true, the responsibility ultimately lies with Hoke, let's hope a reboot was all that was needed.
The bigger purpose of posting this is not to complain about 2013, but to induce hope for 2014. I think there has to be an expectation of improved offensive strategy, which should offset at least some of the offensive line concerns. If the defense takes another step and the lightbulb goes on for one or more of Kalis, Bosch, Magnuson, Dawson, Braden, Cole or other, this team should have every intention of competing for the B1G.
