As UM fans we have grown up under the mantra of toughness and hard work as taught to us by Bo Schembechler. It has been very good to us, but I thought it interesting when I heard about Oklahoma St only using half of their alloted practice time during the year. It made no sense to me and I thought it must have been a mistake but this latest article seems to indicate the same thing and it also says they never tackle to the ground. Obviously Oklahoma St is out performing their talent so it has worked for them, but it just seems so crazy.
I give him credit for out of the box thinking, but I won't say he's built a better mouse trap until he fixes that defense. Maybe offense works with minimal hitting, but defense doesn't? I don't know and we won't be finding out at Michigan anytime soon. I think Heiko should ask Hoke if he thinks tackling is a waste of time.
What do you make of this?
