This is not a post asking if an offensive player is going to switch to corner. On the other hand, how can the offense help the defense? Taking care of the ball is a great start. The coaches have certainly preached plenty about it. Plus I think they might rely even more on the running game, which leads me to believe Denard is more likely to start. U of M lost the time of possession by over 7 minutes per game last season. Of course, the defense not getting off the field on 3rd down is partly to blame, but the offense not sustaining drives gets some fingers pointed at them too.
The defense will most likely be far from good this season. In the Purdue and Illinois games last year, the offense had opportunities to add to leads and didn't come through. Can the offense rise to the occasion and support the D?
