I don't think anyone is saying they do not have the players to run RPO or that they shouldn't. I think it is a little far fetched to think installing it, when coming from the ancient offense they were running, will go off easily this year. What they will be able to install in one offseason is not going to confuse defenses who play against RPOs every week. Sure the offense will be better but running the RPO takes a lot skill from offensive lineman and some three and outs can kill a thin defense. Both of those things will likely hold back the Michigan offense some this year.

I just can't get comfortable with the sentence "The Bombers went 5–5 in the regular season last year and qualified for the playoffs". I was on a team in the 90s that went 8-2 and was the last team to qualify.

True.  Although, the fact he is mentioned at all is laughable.  If he makes the list, why not put Cooper on there.  Cooper had a good winning percentage and lost to Michigan constantly. 

Harbaugh winning percentage at Michigan .731; 0-4 vs. Buckeyes

Cooper winning percentage at OSU .715; Record vs. Michigan 2-10-1

Seem pretty similar!

Uh yeah, Lovie Smith was a .500 coach in the NFL...a little different. At the time, Harbaugh seemed like a good coach. I think it is partially a problem with his coaching and also that he has hit the ceiling of what Michigan is. A two to three loss team annually.

I dislike Harbaugh as much as the next guy but his career is much more prestigious than Frost.  Harbaugh also went to 3 straight NFC championship games plus the Super Bowl.  He went 49-22-1 in the NFL, which is not a terrible record.

Point being, Harbaugh is a tool but he is a decent coach...Ohio State coaches are just better.

Couple of things.  I am curious of how accurate Patterson is.  While he has a good arm, these RPO's require accuracy and quick thinking.  If his accuracy/reaction time is not up to snuff, that is turnover city.  Second, with all the losses and transfers on defense, how well is this defense going to hold up being on the field so long.  They were 3rd in the country last year in time of possession.  With that number likely to go the other way with a quick strike offense (or quick 3 an out offense), they will have to go much deeper into the depth chart than they usually do.

I like that Day is looking for arm talent first in a QB but also does not want a statue back there. A QB who can take off and hurt you if you don't account for it but isn't trying to run fhem on designed plays as often.

Such a weird dude.  How does he ever get decent recruits to commit to his program?  I would like to know how recruits realize they have made a horrible mistake after their first year.

I lived in Charlotte/Lake Norman area for quite a few years and played against some incredible talent and got dunked on probably daily.  Basketball pick-up games are no joke down there.  Tons of guys who played a WF, SC, UNC, and NC State.

I played pick-up basketball against Steph Curry and Seth Curry around 2011-2012 and Kawann Short (DT for the Panthers) many times in the spring/summer.  While Steph Curry was obviously the best basketball player, I have never been ran into as hard has Kawann Short did.  He put his shoulder into my chest on a drive and it rattled my teeth.

At Jesse Owens South we played against Scoonie Penn and Michael Redd a few times...and Steve Bellisari.  Also played the basketball team in slow pitch softball intramurals circa 2001 and were mercy ruled.

Played against some famous Nascar drivers too...but the post was for best athlete sooo....

All because they got a new OC from Alabama, who has never called plays before, and uttered the words "speed in space".  You have to have speed first...not easy when a quarter of your roster is 2-3* tight ends and full backs.

That's their culture. Their only claim to fame (most all time wins) is based on a fabrication against high schools in the late 1800s. They live back there. Buckeyes appreciate the past but focus on what is ahead.
