Michigan Football: Coach Mattison Press Conference Notes — 8/21/2013

Coach Mattison talked about Frank Clark taking some snaps at the 3-tech:
“Just like I mentioned the last time we got together, we are going to make sure that an injury or anything that happens to this defense, that you aren’t hamstrung. You have to know when you play here that the best four players or the best three players, whether there’s a three-man front, are going to be in there.

I don’t want to get into a situation in the middle of the season where all of a sudden, I’m going to move you inside right there, and he hasn’t had a rep at it. I’m trying to look ahead to say, ‘Okay, let’s say this piece went this way and this piece went that way, we have to have that. That’s what we’re doing. We’re doing the same thing in a lot of positions in the secondary. It’s just to make sure that as things go on in the season, a physical season, that everybody’s ready to do different things.”

Coach Mattison talks about Jarrod Wilson:
“Again, it’s everybody. We’ve moved Courtney to get some reps there. We’ve got Thomas, we’ve got Jarrod, we’ve got the young guys, Clark, we’ve got Delano Hill. Again, with 10 practices left, it’s every day, you find out who’s most consistent. The good news is we have viable numbers at a lot of positions. Our job as coaches now is to put enough pressure on them in competition situations to find out who is going to be successful so that it’s either yes or no now, not in that first game or the second game or the third game.”
