Of all the issues afflicting this year's team, the largest is clearly the offensive line. All of our complaints about coaching reduce to how we think the coaches should respond to the fact that the OL is a dumpster fire. If the line were good, Michigan would be undefeated, the wins against Akron and UConn would've been comfortable, and we would be happy right now. So what to do? I suggest (because I'm sure that DB and BH were just waiting to read a blog post an idea like this) that Michigan hire Mike Tice as a consultant for the rest of the year. Tice is not working right now, but was most recently the OL coach for the Bears and of course has head coaching experience with the Vikings. Michigan's offensive line is terrible, and most of us think Funk should be fired, but that isn't realistic mod-season. Still, they could use another set of eyes to see how the line is playing and perhaps help with a few mid-course corrections, and Tice would be terrific for that. So he has the expertise and the need is there. But, importantly, he does not threaten anyone's job--he's an NFL guy and nobody should have to worry about him moving into Brady's office. It would be safe to assume that he will bolt for the NFL ASAP--and that's okay. For the rest of this season he can offer Michigan's OL some much needed help, and offer the staff a different perspective. Brady and Brandon should look into this move or one like it. There's still a bye coming. Something needs to change.
