Michigan Football: Tidbits from CoachBT — The Bowl Game

Michigan has basically five weeks to prep for Kansas State. (IMO) last week might be the most important. Michigan staff had a full week to reevaluate the team and its strengths and weaknesses. They have 15 practices to install and rep a new package that focuses on what this team does best.

One thing I would like to see on offense is what I call a specialty package that takes advantage of Funchess size and speed. Lets try and isolate him on a linebacker and make some mismatches. Move him around and use him like Michigan used Aaron Shea, line him up in the backfield and let him run the 3 level flood route. Put him in motion out of the backfield or from the slot. Throw the screen to him out of backfield. It opens up a lot of options.

One thing I would love to see on defense is on passing downs, nickle package move Frank Clark down to the 3-tech DT and try to get a push and some inside pressure and penetration.
