Film Analysis Ep 6.2 - Defensive Success vs. Maryland

Submitted by FanNamedOzzy on October 12th, 2018 at 8:12 PM

Defense was good. That is all.

6.2.1 - Q1 10:25 - 2nd & 10 - UM35 - Gil 3 yard TFL

  • Great anticipation from Gil here on this run play, and Bush is right on his heels. Poor blocking from Maryland, who severely underestimate the speed of Michigan’s LBs.

6.2.2 - Q1 9:41 - 3rd & 13 - UM38 - 7 yard sack for Hudson / Dwumfour

  • Michigan sends 5 on the pass rush, which Maryland deals with fine initially. Center leaves Dwumfour a clear path to the QB and Hudson eventually beats the RB in pass protection.

6.2.3 - Q1 4:47 - 1st & 10 - MAR24 - Hudson 4 yard sack

  • Well-timed blitz from Hudson off the edge. Think Maryland had an open receiver (#17) momentarily across the middle, but hesitation leaves the QB in a world of hurt.

6.2.4 - Q3 12:35 - 3rd & 30 - MAR20 - 6 yard TFL for Uche

  • Maryland botches a jet sweep, which leaves Uche to show off his athleticism and agility. Scary stuff. The play did look well set-up if not for the missed hand-off.

6.2.5 - Q4 4:32 - 3rd & 4 - MAR45 - Watson Pick6

  • Infuriating *breaking news* interruption - Watson simply steps in front of the receiver for a pick 6. Think the deep cross was coming open for Maryland, but mistakes were made and Michigan capitalizes.

Love these analyses, but you might want to practice putting a little more energy into your verbal descriptions.  The flat affect makes them less interesting to hear than your actual commentary and excellent visuals deserve.  Thanks for sharing.

Definitely a good suggestion - most of my time usually goes towards exporting the video, tuning my descriptions to be <2:20 in length per play (the limit per video on Twitter). So, by the time I'm actually ready to record, it's usually pretty late at nights after work, so I'm generally a bit tuckered out.

Proper delivery is absolutely important, though, and you're right, need to improve there.
