Is it my imagination or is that a picture of Mark Elzinga?

I have stood next to Wormley and have also seen him on the bball court next to 6-8 guys. Believe me he is all of 6-7. Unbelievable upside to him.

Is that the same Jeff Heuerman who's dad played basketball at Michigan? If he hadn' been a traitor he would not have been on the losing team this year. So he can just STFU.

It doesn't work that way. Unless there is a blitz where there is an open gap by design defense is all about gap coverage. You don't read your own linemen, you read the other team, play your gap and make the play when it is yours to make.

DL has the same responsibility as the LBers, they all have a gap they are responsible for. MM had the A gap on that play and actually almost made the tackle for no gain. I would add that Van ergen added to the trouble by getting pushed too far outside and helping create a bigger hole than there should have been. Demens should have turned it inside for Hawthorne to make the play once it got by MM but MM should have made it initially and could have done so easier if Van Bergen had done a better job of constricting the hole.

Usually the linebackers read through the Olinemen into the backfield so a play action is picked up by reading the Oline pass blocking. If the Oline is coming off the ball they're reading the action in the backfield at the same time as to where the ball is going.
IMO this particular play was not on the LBers but on MM who had the A gap coverage and was even shaded into that gap at the time of the snap.

With all due respect that was not the LBers play to make. Mike Martin had responsibility for the A gap where the play was run. He wasnot doubled and was even lined up in that gap so he had the responsibility. Demens had a guard coming directly at him and the best you could expect of him was a stalemate and try to restrict the hole. Hawthorne actually had the A gap on the other side of MM, that was not his play to make. MM should have made that play or bounced it to the other A gap where Hawthorne would have made it.

I also want the names of those inside the department who sabotaged RR. Those Aholes need to be outed. I am guessing they are likely those sent packing by Brandon but I want the names and they deserve any negative publicity that comes with their behavior.

Let's assume UM has the talent to field a talented defense, which we do. What's been missing the last few years is the fundamentals i.e. missed tackles, missed assignments, players out of position, poor angles of pursuit etc. Robinson doesn't have to be genius to correct those problems. The guy has a ton of experience and should have a chip on his shoulder to succeed. He knows the game inside and out. I don't see him failing.

Chuck Heater was a tailback until his senior year when he played fullback. Chapman was the wingback. I have known Heater since his Mich playing days and he is a first class person. Who knows if he would be a good DC or not but he will represent the program extremely well and he is a tireless worker. As a person they don't come much better than Chuck Heater.
