So wait until 2015? Awesome!
5-6 years to put in an offense? If it's going to take that long to have your pieces in place, you damn well better have something in the interim that works. I personally think that, while far from necessarily being perfect, a team should be able to competently run a coaches scheme by year 3.
I would guess it happens whenever Borges finds a quarterback that doesn't turn over the ball every ten seconds. You're not going to have a lot of success when teams are packing the box daring you to throw.
Thank you for the data. It is depressing. Might I suggest working ahead by filling in the rest of this year's graph with tall blue lines. This may hasten the arrival of man all.
As always we are two years away. I say this jokingly of course because it seems like that is typically the generic response. However, I could see manball coming to fruition under Morris/bellomy/wilton (always forget how to spell his last name correctly). Under Gardner, at least fit the time being, I just don't see it. Idk why, but I just don't see it working on a game to game basis.
I say this because thats when Hoke's first full class will be seniors and RS Juniors.
I agree with it wholeheartedly. It's not like Hoke inherited a 'manball' team; in fact it was complete opposite. I really hope it's two years away. My pessimism stems from the act that two Years ago I thought we would be further along then we are now. Lofty expectations? Yes. I'm just glad things are headed in the right direction (seemingly) and we still have a qb that does not necessary require manball to make up for his lack of mobility or run production.
If Michigan is really 2 years away that is beyond depressing.
What were the last 2 years used for? Ending a relevant offense? Or do we just write those years off because DRob was such an explosive player? There are plays being left on the field and shit's getting predictable. I don't care what the offense is, if it's predictable, it's not working.
Quite frankly, I hope it never really fully matures as our base offense. Personally, I would rather see a more up tempo pro style and spread hybrid.
If two NFL caliber 5th year tackles, a 5 star in his 2nd year, a 4 star in his 3rd year, and a 300 pound center cannot push around that god awful Penn State team, or even Akron for that matter, why the hell does anyone think we'll be able to manball anyone decent in 2 years? Sure, with 5 dudes in their 4th season, we might be able to push around UConn in a couple of years, but the difference in pedigree and experience between this line and the one two years from now is not so drastic that we'll go from pushing brick walls against penn state to slapping Sparty and OSU around the field.
It won't REALLY be effective until 2015.
2015 at the earliest. There is a real chance 2014's OL will be worse - and potentially significantly than 2013's. Unless you tell me the experience of Kalis and Glasgow being in their 2nd year outweighs the difference between senriors Lewan+Schofield over Braden+Magnuson as 1st year starters.
2014 OL will be bringing 2 min, 3 most likely 1st year starters and 2 "veterans" who will have all of 1 year of experience each (I am assuming Glasgow retains a starter position). If Glasgow gets the boot, you have the potential for 4 new starters.
