BallHype: hype it up! Monday, December 17, 2007
I can't control myself, I am still chuckling at the sight of Ryan Mallet running the spread option. I know Rich Rod is a great hire especially away from a school ranked higher than where he eventually ended up, but common Michigan. Its like hiring a sushi chef to take over a high class Italian restaurant. Sure you can slowly change your system into a spread attack, but didn't your little brother try that with inconsistent success just as recently as last year? I know, I know, you're Michigan and basically defy the laws of physics, but ask Nebraska how switching to a new system (though they tried the West Coast-style offense) overnight turned out for them. Hey, Rich could work out and dominate the Big Ten a la Jim Tressel style. But how successful was Northwestern, Purdue, Illinois, Michigan State and Indiana in a smash mouth league. Yeah, Illinois had its year this year, but how consistently successful can you be if you basically run a gimmicky offense.

Hope you enjoyed the sight of the winged helmets trying the spread option as much as I have.

    This will most likely end up as a bad move....for us. Maybe not next year but down the line. Mobile QBs tend to give us trouble and with his system and UM's brand recognition, he'll be able to get the right bodies into his offense and then watch out. But not that they have any problem beating us now as it is!!!
