Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan — Couple of Game Thoughts
1) Question? Why did Notre Dame win the battle on both Line of scrimmages?
While ND was very good on both lines, when you watch the tape, ND frequently used their linebacker’s on run blitzes.
Also, when ND continued to use their LB’s aggressively, it allowed Borges to counter by using a version of “read option” which ND basically over pursued itself out of position.
Keep in mind, UM scored 41 points, so our OL had its hands full with a veteran DL, some athletic LB’s who were overly aggressive in blitzes vs both the pass and run, but one could argue the scheme ND used put UM’s OL in a bad position, but allowed Borges to counter with effective plays.
