Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan -- Ready For The Nebraska Game

Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan — Ready For The Nebraska Game

Time to move on, get ready for Nebraska, couple thoughts going into the game.

1) One thing to remember, Hoke has done a great job of recruiting quality kids. The vast majority of the kids we see on Saturday are doing all the right things and eventually I think UM will be relevant again in terms of being to compete at a national level. Have to admit I thought we would be much closer by now, but we simply are not and I accept the position we are in.

2) Having said that I would really like to see some changes on Saturday (even though this is a very big win for UM) and when games are this important it is hard for coaches to do any type of experimenting or make any major changes. But, the two kids I would really love to see get some action are Strobel (if he is healthy enough) and Thomas. Mainly because I think both have the potential to be major contributors in the future.

3) I also would love to see us use more RB’s including Deveon or Rawls, even Hayes who I still do not understand why we do not use him as a pass threat out of the backfield.

4) I guess my main point is this (and I completely understand that I am not the coach so I do not have to take any heat if UM loses), but I would love for UM to just make a determination on how they want to play in the future both on offense and defense and just let it rip. If we give up 40 points I will chalk it up to growing pains, but we have to stop all of this play one way this week then something completely different the next.
