Stadium and Main: If you only read one thing this week...

If you only read one thing this week...

Read this.

A great recap of the Michigan Football Fantasy Experience from mgoblog, provided by a camper named Jon Chait. The most important stuff comes near the end, where Jon explains in detail what the coaches are like, how they think, and what we can expect this year (and/or beyond). I find this recap so intriguing because it matches the things I have been told by a friend of mine who also attended. My friend, who can only be described as an optimist (annoying!), told me to expect changes. In addition, my buddy can definitely be considered an “insider,” so I trust his info. But because he is so close to the program, I often doubt his critiques or expectations. However, it appears that Mr. Chait is more on my level:
"Carr... has a maddening tendency to sit on leads..."

"[O]ur formations tipped off when we would run and where..."

"When Carr talks, he just conveys terror of things going wrong."
These are things many people close to the program just don’t see, or, rather, refuse to see. Thus, it was very refreshing to hear somebody "outside of the bubble" provide some encouraging news about some changes to the same-old, same-old. Now let’s just hope that we don’t scrap said changes if (when?) we lose at Notre Dame.
