    Actually a lot of good information here. Thanks for sharing. I found Fisch to be quite similar to other Harbaugh assistants. They all seem quite confident in their assigned roles and for being only 39, he has been exposed to a lot of different football philosophies, probably none more influential than Spurrier in his current role as passing coordinator.
    What we saw from him this past season was quite impressive, and keep in mind what we had going in. We had a qb benched at IA and due to nothing more than limited time was only going to receive so much of the playbook each week. We had a “good” TE and two wide outs not too many people outside of AA could do a quick word association of placing their names with Michigan football.
    Week by week, however, as Jake learned more of the offense, their roles growing significantly they were no longer a well kept secret. By season’s end, Jim seeming to completely let go of the training wheels and making Perry very much a part of the game plan, we got a glimpse of what this attack will look like going forward, and I am quite excited at the prospects. An AA TE along with a receiver being recognized likewise, no matter the publication is damn impressive. I can take another year of watching a qb to throw to wide open receivers, made possible in large part because Fisch understands how the defense will react to certain routes and when run in combination with others how often the results are a wide open receiver.
    If whomever is at qb can show a grasp of the offense that Jake had by game 6 or 7, this could be a very big year. And you just gotta love the incoming cruits. ]

      I can definitely see some Spurrier influence in our passing game, even though it’s in a different form (lots of tight ends rather than four or five wide receivers). Spurrier was very good at spreading the field laterally and creating space over the middle of the field and down the seams. It was pretty amazing that we took an Iowa castoff QB, a possession WR (Darboh), and an unpolished athletic specimen WR (Chesson) to the heights they reached last season…all without a consistent running back/game.
