Michigan Football: Tidbits from MaizeMan — Random Thoughts

1) Glad I am not a betting man, I was dead wrong about Alabama, although have to give Oklahoma some credit.They are usually a horrible bowl team, but I think this is just an example of what happens when a team like Alabama gets away from what their identity is. Saban said as much today. Look for them to get back to basics next year, especially offensively.

2) As far as the coaching situation at UM. UM will probably notify, if they have not already, the asst. coaches who will return. Reason they wont wait until signing day is because it is simply unfair to the coach. With the national coaches meeting coming this week, they will give those coaches an opportunity to latch on with another club. So expect some news this week.

3) One comment on our S&C program. I am not that good of a judge when it comes to Wellman. When Barwis was here, I kept reporting he was our best asset although I did have a huge issue with the amount of cardio the players did in comparison to strength training. But keep in mind, that is what RR wanted, Barwis can adjust and he has trained many players to become bigger and stronger. Not advocating anything here, just has been asked this question in private messages.

4) One thing I have noticed while watching the BCS bowls, UM is just way too slow. (example Oklahoma best pass rusher was smaller than Mario) we call Mario a tweener, but yet with other programs they have similar size players that are really productive. Last spring, we saw Mario limping around quite a bit, I just wonder if he played injured all year because he sure did not look anywhere near as quick as he did his freshman year.
