Michigan Football: Spring Football — Chat Notes — Defense
The defense is playing press coverage on third-down. They have some very big boys on that side of the ball. They look huge to us and Coach Wellman and staff have done their job.
The defense is much faster and very physical compared to last season. There’s a ton of depth on the defense now. When Coach Mattison was asked why Michigan does not play man coverage more he said it is because we dont have man coverage players, except one (he was referring to Lewis).
They are at least practicing press which is a good thing, but when we have a pass rush on defense we still need to cover quick passes to outside better.
The defense has dominated the offense most of the spring which it should at this point because of learning new offense along with what we talked about before where Coach Nuss asked Coach Mattison to send plenty of pressure this spring.
Coach Mattison is harping on the red zone turnover margin and stopping good running teams.
