A Michigan onesie for my son due in April.

At least I'm better than when I was 5.  At a loss I would throw a pretty good tantrum and cry a bunch.  Now, it's a tantrum.  Not so much on the crying.

Al Borges will do what he knows best.  This is, however, not as vanilla as all the hype makes it out to be.  Just watch SDSU's bowl game against Navy and you'll see a large variety of formations are play calling.  Yes, Ryan Lindley will be a pretty good pro-prospect and is a very accurate passer but Borges showed enough variety in his play calling that I am not worried about this transition.

I found that Borges was running an offense that already was a bit of a hybrid.  He certainly play-called to the strengths of Ryan Lindley as a passer but also showed a variety of formations and balance.  Don't get stuck on the term "pro-style" without having seen a recent Al Borges offense.

I've also been struck by the confidence that RR is "showing" in the way he talks to the media.  I've been thinking about it and I think it comes from this years team actually being a team.  RR didn't win everywhere else with 4 and 5 start recruits but his teams were good.  That just makes me think that RR is a true coach who can get the most out of his kids...make them believe in and play their best for the team.  RR is always talking about competition but I think this is just another way of saying that teammates are pushing eachother, which is what a good teammate does (see: Wolfolk and Forcier or Martin and Molk).  The more good teammates we have the better the team will perform come game time.

That's how I interpreted the writeup.  It's also why I think Denard was so effective in the spring game.  The offense looked like it was HIS.

03/24/2010 - 9:44am 4-2-5 or 3-3-5

I've been reading up on the 4-2-5 defense that many people think we will be running this year but after this most recent post (and talk of the 3-3-5) I'm a bit confused. I could imagine that the 4-2-5 and the 3-3-5 are basically the same set with the 'quick' either setting up on the line or 5 yards off. Anyone have info on the differences between these two defensive sets?
