Hoke & Borges seem determined to install a more power-football-based philosophy at michigan. Let's think about this a bit: The thing that really surprised me about how RR deployed Denard last year was the straight-ahead, between-the-tackles nature of the playcalling, Watching that video of Denard highlights made me think that there's something unique Borges could work in terms of developing a scheme. It's not like Denard was some rogue athlete who runs around before letting plays develop. He's at his best when he can make a single move and accelerate into the secondary. The coaches have to have picked up on this if they've watched any footage of the past season.
So, as we move into spring practice territory, it really seems like it would make sense and not be too difficult to keep some elements of the QB lead-based offense. They've essentially got a great running back who happens to be able to throw for 2500+ yards. I really look forward to seeing how they build the offense this spring.
