Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan — Couple of Thoughts

Here is a small sample from MaizeMan’s message board post. To read the entire thing along with what other said please visit the message board.

1) With Q-Washington getting more and more playing time does Black now start playing more SDE? Went through the tape once again and unlike many other games UM went with a standard 4 man front on defense almost the whole night. This is unusual for Mattison especially in passing situations. Black may be better suited for SDE.

2) The emergence of Q Washington really sets UM up pretty well for next year. Change out Pipkins for Big Will and you basically keep your DL in place. Roh graduates–but I think Black, Strobel, and the possibility of Beyer moving over to SDE gives us some good depth at that position. Henry by next year I think is in rotation and Godin looks like a future run stopper type player. This will free up Mattison to use Clark and Mario and the continued development of Mario I think allows Mattison to use both when facing spread teams or in passing situations.

4) Mentioned this in Chat on Monday night, but looking at our roster and incoming recruits I would like to see UM go after a very athletic slot type receiver. J-Rob, Jackson, Chessin, Darboh, York, Dukes, and Gardner all tall receivers also you could throw in Funchness. Maybe someone like Conley or Jordan Lewis, or maybe move Hayes out to slot.
