I've watched a lot of their offense on Youtube over the last couple months and there's stuff like that happening in almost every game. I REALLY hope that's Harbaugh trying to play 1980's offensive coordinator. The other thing that got me concerned was the Rutgers game. They kept running into a loaded box over and over with minimal results. They won the game 20-13 but how can you justify running the ball 38 times at 2.9 ypc while only attempting 16 passes? Rutgers was literally daring them to throw the ball downfield and they just kept trying to force the run. They went almost the entire second half without getting a single first down.I'm more excited to see how Gattis evolves away from some of the Harbaugh influence. I have watched just about every Michigan game from last year and there are drives where they are rolling then randomly jump into some 22 personnel stuff or 2 fullbacks enter the game. Gotta think that was Harbaugh adding his influence. Gattis seems to be with the times and running most of this offense out of the gun.
