I figured I would post this as I read more and more myths surrounding the program and "what Michigan needs" etc. If you can think fo any others, feel free to post them.
Myth: Michigan needs a big bruising back in its pro style offense.
Debunked: Ronnie Hillman, Hoke's last RB was a little tiny speedster who wrecked fools, including BCS opponent/10 game winner Mizzou. Also, I would call Jahvid Best an above average college running back in a pro system.
Myth: Devin Gardner is a spread quarterback and we need Shane Morris to be our savior as soon as possible.
Debunked: Devin had the strongest arm in his class according to Rivals.com when he was recruited, and according to Al Borges,throws a beautiful deep ball.
Myth: Brady Hoke hates zone blocking.
Debunked: The actual quote was: “Right, wrong or indifferent, when you’re zone blocking all the time -- when you’re playing basketball on grass -- you practice against that all spring, you practice against it all fall and then you’re going to play a two-back team that wants to knock you off the football,” Hoke said. “I don’t think you’re prepared."
Notice the bold. Furthermore, please take note of game footage from SDSU in which they did a very large amount of zone blocking.
Myth: Michael Shaw is a weak runner.
Debunked: Just like... watch some actual game footage and stop getting him confused with Carlos Brown. Dude runs hard.
So what are some other Michigan myths that need debunking?
