Wow, it gives me an impression that whoever wins Dunn will win the tide of this decade
Michigan has an edge on Bri'onte Dunn
So Meyer is going to blatantly break the rules eh? I can just see it now "you see how much I wan you? I'm breaking NCAA rules to come see you again.". If he gets away with that, it's utter bullshit.
all the Brionte Dunns, please. this is shaping up to be an epic Michigan vs. Ohio Arms Race of The Future!
And Dunn's decision bodes well for the future in the broader sense. It is the first sign that Urbie might run into some of the same problems that RR had in terms of trying to recruit elite players from the State of Ohio and throughout the Midwest who do not want to play in a spread offense.
Any idea how him not enrolling early may affect his decision? Somehow I thought that if he was an EE, he could commit to UM and get the heck out of Ohio the next week. The lingering may change things.
His decision process doesn't change at all, just gives him more time. I think him rushing a decision because of EE favoring Michigan was over played. It is literally 55-45 Michigan right now, but the spread offense of Ohio, really slants it in Michigan's direction.
Characterizing Michigan's offense as "Pro / west coast" (Hoke) vs Ohio's offense as "spread" (Meyer) may tilt Dunn's decision toward Michigan--I hope it does.
But is the offensive choice that clear cut? Under Borges, our offense has been described as a hybrid, and as the 2011 season unfolded, our offense evolved more and more toward the spread. Will the 2012 season see more or less of Denard in the spread?
After Denard graduates, Dunn can reasonably expect Borges to "revert" to a pro-style offense. But who knows for sure what the future holds? Borges and Hoke may find that Denard opens up new ways of thinking about a hybrid offense.
What do you think?
I have no intention of debating how much the offense morphed into a spread toward the end of the year. It seemed like it did, but I'm too lazy to research it. However, I think the main point is that, in Borges' offense, we did have a tailback that ran for over 1,000 yards. Meyer has never had that. I think that's the main selling point here.
know how much of a spread it was with Fitz racking up 1000 yds in only 6 games.
