Why would Big Al leave Michigan. I know he coached with Muschamp at Auburn, but he has been with Brady for a while now and Michigan is on the up and up. Why stir the pot?

MGoBlog article 12 section 2 paragraph 4

"Any content refering to Michigan's Offensive Coordinator 'Al Gorgeous Borges' is required to also contain a photo from file."

For shame, for shame.

I really thought he might consider leaving the team with a Heisman favorite, a thousand yard back, 4 offensive line starters, three proven wideouts, a versatile 3rd down back, a talented fullback, and an experienced, blue-chip, backup QB to groom for the future or use in case of emergency all coming back next season.  All so he could ride the John Brantley gravy train to stardom and untold riches. 

Seriously, I thought that was totally going to happen.  For real.

"Change tends to be met with resistance," Borges said. "But the best thing I've learned is to close your mouth and open your mind. If you can do that, you can develop yourself as a football coach and develop as a football team. It keeps you on your toes, and at one point in time, you embrace something new. If you have an open mind."

As has been mentioned already, today is a great day! For all of the reasons stated above, Ohio sanctions, Borges sticking around, the new MGOBLOG comic strip, and I received a telephone call to inform me that I WON and all expense paid trip to the BCS National Championship game for myself and 3 friends!!!  Christmas has come early!

an assumption that there will be a long line of dual threat qb's coming to michigan.  DR and DG were not recruited by this coaching staff.  they are RR guys.  is there a chance that this offense will eventually revert back to the drop back passer with a philosophy of 3 yards and a cloud of dust?  perhaps only time will tell, but i believe that after seeing how a hybrid type offense like we have enjoyed this season is better than both a pro-style and a read-option offense.

Their definition of "dual-threat" must be pretty generous, because he seems much more like a pocket passer to me.  I can't imagine him being the team's primary rushing threat.  I could see him being more like Forcier where he picks up yards on the odd zone read keeper, but just to keep the defense honest.

he may seem more like a pocket passer to you because Michigan no longer runs a zone read offense.  but the offense DG was in while a qb at Inkster was a zone read type offense which is why he commited to Michigan under RR.  will DG playing in al's system make him a better all-around qb, you betcha.
