    Ohio State’s passing game could not overcome an insipid offensive game plan—and a defense that was manhandled up front by Michigan and had no ability to address being stretched to the field and boundary—in the Buckeyes’ 42-27 loss to the Wolverines.



    As is his wont, Michigan defensive coordinator Mike MacDonald mixed in numerous cover 3 weak and fire zones with cover 4 man match coverages. But at the risk of oversimplifying, MacDonald’s game plan was as follows. First, run a single high and/or fire zone pressure on run downs; particularly when Ohio State was under center or in the pistol.




    Another weak zone run in the 1Q where I think Stroud should throw the relief. Get a 3 on 2 outside and UM is seemingly checking to a fire zone whenever OSU is in pistol. Can’t make it so easy to dissuade you from throwing the relief just because the CB is head up on No. 1 pic.twitter.com/WqOxSGpG5T— Ross Fulton (@RossRFulton)...

    so a QB that is willing/able to provide a "constraint" DOES make a difference??

    Who knew?

    Good post. Thanks for the report.

    Thanks for the mention of “catching blocks”. I have been trying to verbalize what the DBs and LBs seem to be doing with blockers coming at them and that’s exactly it.

    Isn’t 12 personal basically Day’ base offense? Why would he abandon that on his biggest game?
