I am not personally familiar with how practices are run. I'm curious how often the Michigan defense and offense play against each other at full speed. You would think that this would really help both sides of the team improve. What better practice for the defense than to try to stop Carlos Brown? What better practice for DRob to pass than to actually have the DL coming to hit him and the corners covering the receivers?
I have often heard it said that when one side of the ball is good, it helps the other side improve. But I'm wondering if this is really true.
