2003 Michigan Roster

X'S AND (ky(e) 0'S
Michigan Daily Sports Editor Kyle O'Neill is not a collegiate
athlete, nor is he a collegiate coach. But he was a starting wide
receiver for his winless team at Garber High School, was third
in Bay County in receptions his senior year and claims to know
something about the game of football. So, in this special edi-
tion of X's and O's, we'll let him break down Michigan's
offense to see what has and has not been working.

CORNERBACKS EITHER 0
DROP INTO ZONE OR MANI
Explanation: Michigan has had some great successes the past few weeks in the no-huddle/shotgun offense. While it would be
easy to think that it is because opposing defenses just drop into prevent defenses, that is not the case. In fact, in many situa-
tions - including Braylon Edwards' touchdown last weekend - Minnesota was in either a straight-up man-to-man, or a cover-two
defense. On the left, you see what Michigan was primarily facing in the first half. At any time, Michigan would face up to eight
defenders in the box - a credit to the Golden Gophers' ability to read whether Michigan was passing or running. More often than
not, Minnesota's corners would play man-on-man against the wide receivers. And more often than not, Michigan's wideouts were
able to burn them on talent alone. But, Minnesota dropped its linebackers and safeties back into zone coverage anytime they
saw pass. This allowed the Golden Gophers to not guess on its play calling, and just react. By pass rushing four (at most five),
Minnesota took away from its chances of getting a sack and left Michigan's short passes wide open. BUT, by running the
defense they did run (which was similar to Iowa's, except for Iowa safety Bob Sanders being a much bigger playmaker than Min-
nesota's safeties), Minnesota was able to deny Michigan most of the 10- and 12-yard pass routes that had been making the
Wolverines so successful.
Enter the shotgun, along with Minnesota's confusion on how to stop it. To give the Golden Gophers credit, they did not retreat
into the prevent. They stuck with what had got them there. Unfortunately, in doing so, the linebackers were no longer the factor
they once were. They were forced to guess instead of react to the play they were seeing, meaning the first five yards off the line
of scrimmage were usually wide open for screen, swing passes, or draws up the middle to Perry. This is where Michigan's depth
at wide receiver pays off. If the linebackers did not commit to the pass right away, they were taking the risk of allowing a big
play. The double-edged sword brought Minnesota down, as it was this over-commitment to the 10-yard pass that allowed Perry
the freedom he got.

Michigan coach J. Brady McCollough:
To a man, I kicked Coach O'Neill's ass
today. In his defense, nobody could
have beaten me. I had a chip on my
shoulder, and after the last game I
played against O'Neill - he was up
35-0 when I quit the game - I had my
back against the wall.
I knew O'Neill would come out with
his patented no-huddle attack, and I
was ready for it with my "Cover MAX"
zone defense. When we won the toss,
I chose to kick the ball off to him
because I wanted to show him what
we were made of early, and we did.
DE No. 13 was outstanding, and the
secondary played a wonderful game.
It was S No. 3's 12th best game since
he's been at Michigan.
Last night in the team hotel, I was
making my rounds and I came upon
the room of FB No. 32. I said, 'FB No.
32, I had a dream about you last
night, and you scored three touch-
downs in tomorrow's game.' FB No.
32 said, Coach, I'll do my best to
score three touchdowns, but you have
to give me the rock.' And sure
enough, I gave him the rock and he
scored three touchdowns.
I have a lot of dreams. Dreams about

football, running the football, some-
times with the fullback, sometimes
with the running back, sometimes on
a reverse ... what?
Illinois coach Kyle O'Neill: Well we
entered this game with a lot of goals.
We met two of them: Have good break-
fast - I had steak, over-easy eggs and
fresh-squeezed orange juice - and get
Michigan WR No. 1 to autograph my hat
- which he did ... nice guy. Questions?
Coach McCollough went into a nice zone
defense, and Michigan DE No. 13 made
It impossible to run any type of offense.
That was over-easy eggs, yes. And no, I
have nothing against scrambled.
No, this was not my most embarassing
loss ever. I lost by three points once to for-
mer Seattle Seahawks coach Brian Camp-
bell, of the University Towers Conference.
I did not have my pregame ritual of listen-
ing to Sting's "Seven Days." We listened
to that "Its getin harder to breathe"
song instead'... I mean, shit, it's on the
radio so much ... how in the hell am I sup-
posed to get it out of my head? Cause
you know, it's cold outside, and I've prob-
ably got no one to love (insert'some crap-
py lyrics here) and like, woah I'm just

from the windows to the walls going
crazy. I mean where has the good music
gone?!?! No, I am not done with this
press conference. Get your hands off me
... Everybody's workin for the weekend
... everbody wants to ... AHHHH!!!!
