|10/26/2014 - 2:27am||Next Coach=Spread Offense||
When you look across the landscape of college football, there's only 3-4 Power 5 conference teams of any significance running a pro style offense. Stanford, Arkansas, Alabama, Wisconsin & Pitt (if you call them significant). We have the talent on offense to hire a spread coach whose scheme doesn't revolve around the zone read primarily. Look at Utah's QB that torched us, Rutgers' qb, etc. Morris and Speight can do the same in a spread.
The thought that we need a pro style coach highlights the flaws within Michigan athletics that are the crux of our woes. The unwillingness to change, resting upon traditions, instead of building upon them.
For ex; the lack of a real college environment in the stadium. Why is this? Because season ticket prices are out of the range of younger fans that would change the atmosphere, and silver foxes are allowed to keep tickets for an eternity. We've all heard it, "I've had season tickets for 35 years". Thus, a crowd that scares no one.
Ex 2. The lack of frequency of night games and making every night game a spectacle. A large majority of programs across the country host so many night games that "Under The Lights" branding wouldn't even make sense. There's no need to brand night games. Host more than one per year. I know that would annoy grandma and grandpa who won't give up their seats, may have to stay up late, but we must evolve.
Ex.3 No Thursday or Friday night games. More institutional stubbornness. All of the top SEC teams play on these nights during the week. We should be doing it as well, in September & October. The uppity fan will say, we're to big for that blah blah blah. It would be awesome for the program.
I could go on & on. We have to get with the times overall. My coaching wish list is below.
Jim Harbaugh, Kevin Sumlin, Dan Mullen, Hugh Freeze, Bob Stoops, Chad Morris

this has to be one of the saddest stories I've witnessed at U of M. It's clear that he won't be coming to Ann Arbor. This case was severly botched at some point. I'll definetly follow Dorsey closely where ever he goes. He's going to be a stud and we'll all remember how he got away from the maize and blue

from what i saw he was practicing with the slots. i didn't see him at running back but that doesn't mean much. he is super explosive and looked really good. he's a small guy so that did concern me as i watched him.

I got a chance to see the guys practice over the last few days. I think that Cam Gordon is going to be a stud. He locates the ball really well and gets there in a hurry. He is going to be a big hitter. Reminiscent of Earnest Shazor, but a much better cover man. He covers ground well and gets to his spots. He is a big guy and has a physically intimidating presence. I'm looking forward to seeing him this fall. He's also a really nice kid as well. I think fans will be presently surprised by Gordon. Go Blue!
