I would like to talk some football, and I would like to have fun doing so. I know we fans do not control the first offensive play call, but if we did, what play would it be?
For me, I would line up in Pistol formation (a formation we have used this year, but not frequently). I would have Gallon and Dileo (Chesson if Dileo is out) out wide right, Funchess and Kerridge to Gardner's left and right in the backfield, and Fitz behind Gardner.
Ball is snapped. Fake zone stretch to the right. Throwback to Funchess for TE screen with Lewan and Bosch blocking for him.
Best case: State defense overpursues the run fake, and Lewan carries Funchess on his back into the end zone. Marcus Rush called for Roughing the Quarterback, and on the kickoff, Brady Hoke busts out the onside kick that he didn't want to show against Indiana. Michigan recovers. Repeat sequence until we are up by 70 points.
Worst case: Incomplete pass (unless it's the Akron game). A sack could happen, but I would hope Devin could throw it at the feet of Funchess before that would happen.
So what is your first offensive play?
