I was thinking that as well

I for one believe that the defensive side of the ball should get the greatest attention. Our current woes vs. Ohio State stem largely from a decline on that side. We have not shown any ability to outscore them which seems to be the current approach in the NCAA these days.

This feels even worse than when the Lions went 0-16. It just feels like the team has no life or spark to them. We are getting killed in the Big play department, getting killed in special teams and field position batle. Something is just not right with this team to fail in such epic fashion.
I said something at the game Saturday how I could remember when the 3rd Quarter I could almost always count some positive momentum coming out of the lockerroom....now it is the complete opposite. I certainly think it is more on the coaches than the kids.
As much as I want to see some heads roll and changes made I wonder what is best for the kids. It's not fair to put them thru any of this.
There just seems to me there are some still deep issues with the team we are unaware of.

My first thought about halfway thru the game on Saturday was for them to STOP doing whatever they do to prepare for road games and try something else....anything!

Interesting I read looking back at the 1996 and 2005 seasons were both disappointments and in both 1997 and 2006 Michigan had new coordinators for both offense and defense. The two best years the team has had the last 20 years.
In 1996 Fred Jackson and Greg Mattison were in their 2nd years as coordinators and were replaced by Jim Hermann and Mike Debord respecrtively.
In 2006 Mike Debord took back over for Terry Malone and Ron English for Jim Hermann.
This gives me some hope for next year.
I was also looking back at Al Borges success at UCLA and Auburn, his two longest stays. After McNown left the UCLA offense nosedived and what happened at Auburn is eerily similar to Michigan's prediciment.
I don't think they need to replace Mattison but do think they need to find an up and coming OC from say a MAC school and inject some new life into the offense. I think mentally the offense is just beat down and needs a change.

Let's not forget that the 1997 team had Chris Floyd in the backfield to help pick up blitzes. I think it's safe to assume that Michigan may see a steady diet of Blitzes. I think it may be unfair to put all the blame on the O-Line. They are also rebuilding the FB and TE positions after the R-Rod years.
