This may possibly be the worst Michigan team of all time. Maybe not talent wise but certainly teamwise. Oregon players were saying that they felt that the defense quit after a while. The coaching is some of the worst that I have ever seen. Lloyd Carr and Ron English have to go. They still have not figured out how to beat a spread offense.
I can tell you how. Speed and lots of it. That and aggressiveness, with the play calling and on the field. A good example of this is Jim Johnson over at Philadelphia. He runs a 4-3 but his play calling constantly changes and his blitz packages confuse the opposing defense. They never know what to expect. A big difference from the run-run-pass defense of Michigan.
Lets face it. Michigan football needs a complete overhaul. When players miss tackles, stop playing hard, blow coverages, get beat on big plays when you are playing a prevent defense. You've got problems. Big ones. And it all starts with the coaching.
Does any body know if Michigan uses HIT in their training? That might help explain why they are getting their asses handed to them physically on the field.
