    The Steve Casula is an interesting one. We’ve had a bunch of analysts on staff for years, but it doesn’t seem we listen to them, and try to out-gameplan teams, or make adjustments in-game. Instead, it looks like we’re wed to a philosophy, that of out-toughing no matter what.

    Will that change with Harris as OC? Will Casula be his main guy to help achieve this?

    I’ve long said I don’t care what system we run, as long as we recruit towards it, and leverage what the opponent offers…

    Let’s hope we’re headed in the right direction

      Run a system. Recruit to it. Adapt to opponents.

      A good philosophy but easier said than done. I agree though. Michigan needs to pick and identity and stop trying to be an NFL team that can do everything and anything against anyone.

    Sorry, but MLive’s content is pretty much a shitshow. McCann asks the question in the title to his article, spits out a bunch of bland statistics, then ends up saying about Gattis “His job at Michigan will give him more autonomy over the play calling, which leaves it a mystery as to how he will use the tight ends here.”

    Zowie.

      He also referred to McDaniels as our new WR coach in the coaching staff article. He’s wrong too often to list, but what’s really odd is that he’s predictable: if you’re wondering what will be on MLive, either look back a year to what Nick Baumgardner wrote, or go to the FreeP and see what he’s working on now… Nothing original from mcmann
