I try my best. Let my kids know I love them and prepare for a new outlook on my future in the sport.
You are Al Borges for this week. What is your game plan to beat Ohio State?
He will run nr 28 25 times figuring the suckeyes would never believe he was that stubborn and stupid to try it.
Some illegal paraphernalia on Ohio's buses. Then we have the police stop them before we they enter the Stadium. The whole team is detained and they have to forfeit. Booya 2 wins in 3 yeas

If I'm al I would just continue to call the same shit plays I have all season for two reasons:.
1: My boss absolutely loves them
2. Anyone who dares to be to be critical of my genius is mocked and attacked for not not being supportive enough of the team
This is awesome....I can be completely incompetent and anyone who challenges it is ridiculed for not being a true "fan". Cause REAL Michigan fans accept complete and utter failure quietly and with no complaints. Anything else marks you a fair weather fan.
Have lesser used players run onto the field and literally throw kitchen sinks at ohio players and hope for injuries. (I kid)
Go three wide / four wide. Throw the ball at least 40+ times - short and med, with just a few long. Tell Devin it's preferred to throw the ball away on 1st or 2nd down, instead of trying to do one of his duck-and-scramble (which doesn't work much, b/c he often "ducks" into the 2nd or 3rd defender who beat his man). Run draw plays on occasion. Never have two backs in at once, as the I-form is junk.
I don't expect this to happen, as it should have already (see Nebraska). But OSU has an excellent offense with a so-so defense, and will likely score 24 or more points no matter what we do (e.g., if we try ball control), so our only chance is to outscore them in a shootout.
Instead of faking the Bubble Screen . . . actually throw the Bubble Screen!
I kid, we would never do that.
Not just a lame A gap blitz or even a wimpy double A gap blitz but an INYOURFACEMOTHERFUCKING TRIPLE A gap blitz!!!
on offense, EVERY offensive player blitzs their D through the A gap.
forget 7,8, or 9 in the box, 11 IN THE FUCKING GAP !
Narduzzi for OC.
and call every single play against Ohio as I deem fit for my offense and for my quarterback(s), as always.
I have 27 years of offensive coordinator experience. Do you honestly think I read the papers or blogs or whatever? If I'm fired, then so be it.
Because getting fired from Michigan football seems to be a proverbial springboard for comeback success elsewhere anyway. See Rodriguez and Arizona's demolition of Oregon. Or Gerg Robinson. Or Scott Shafer.
The sun will come out tomorrow. Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow, they'll be sun.
And avoid it. There is no challenge in taking what the defense gives you. Real men run at 9 men in the box. I would show Ohio I am not afraid of them by attacking their strength with my weakness until it works!
Seriously, though I would spread Ohio out and go with short quick passes/screens, with an occasional draw mixed in. Target Gallon and Funchess as often as possible, to maximize their touches.
Though, I know Al won't do that exclusively, so I guess bang your head against the wall trying to run some power type plays hoping fruitlessly that the wall somehow breaks
Well.... we've scored 3 offensive TD's in the last 4 conference games(!!!!!!!!!!). I'd say we make sure the kicker is loose.
well, if I am Al borges then I will continue to do the same dumb shit that got us here...
now, if i magically became OC this weekend. I would choose ten plays, all out of the same formation, run no huddle and call the plays at the line. Then in the second half I would use 10 other plays.
Seriously, 20 plays all out of the same formation. Each ten could get you through a half... I would want to score at least 17 points a half...
I would throw deep jumpballs to funchess at least once each series..
