It is my understanding that one of the more common hopes for 2017 is the offense improves its OL. The improved OL will enable UofM to run a 4 minute offense i.e. bleed time off the clock at the end of a game we are winning (see Iowa and OSU). Or am I wrong, is this a RB issue?
My basic question for the board is this a reasonable ask?
I don't have numbers in front of me, but it always seems like the losing team has the ball at the end of the game due to time outs.
I know a good 4 minute offense would give the opposition the least amount of time possible, as well as rest the defense, but it is not reasonable to expect every game to end with a UofM kneel down.
What is the appropriate level of success for the OL / 4 minute offense next year?
Not surrender any 4th quarter leads?
