Social distancing has us all acting a bit abnormal, but it seems Michigan offensive coordinator Josh Gattis has let the isolation get to him.
The Michigan offensive coordinator posted a video on Monday evening suggesting that his Michigan team "beat ourselves" in its 56-27 home loss and that "the BluePrint is out!" on how the Wolverines are going to win this year.
All while highlighting one play from the first quarter.
Corona may limit us to work from home...... but dont think were sleeping! 2019 is over but the lessons learned live on! 2020 we wont be so kind to beat ourselves ...— Josh Gattis (@Coach_Gattis) March 17, 2020
The BluePrint is out! We have only thing on our ind! #ARealOne pic.twitter.com/OXdtM20S5H
First off, that play is from Michigan's first drive. If that's really the "BluePrint," why didn't they just follow it to victory this year? It's not like they discovered something at the end of the game and thought "damn, we should have done this instead."
Second, if Michigan really beat itself in that game, the Wolverines might be one of the most self-destructive teams of all time because I have never once seen a team with enough self-hate to blast itself by 29 points. I mean, damn. At some point, you'd think they'd call off the dogs if that was the case.
Either Michigan is the first team in college football history to beat itself by four touchdowns, or Gattis and the Wolverine coaching staff are once again blowing smoke up the collective ass of an entire fanbase only to get predictably punked next November.
Personally, I'm going with the latter, given how the past two decades have played out. And it's telling that he's already getting clowned on in Columbus.
If you think it's going to be a long offseason in Columbus, imagine the folks in Ann Arbor.
