Big Noon Kickoff crew explains what makes Michigan 'different' in 2021
Michigan is on a roll halfway through the season; they are undefeated at 6-0, 3-0 in B1G play, and are No. 6 in the Week 8 edition of the AP poll.
The B1G Noon Kickoff crew talked about Michigan and how they are different this season. Former Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops talked about how Michigan makes it easier for QB Cade McNamara.
“I think where they’re so smart is they don’t make Cade McNamara force the ball down the field,” said Stoops. “They really do a great job using their running back, Blake Corum, in the passing game.”
Matt Leinhart talked about how the offensive coordinator Josh Gattis for Michigan and how good he is at creating different schemes.
“I think offensive coordinator Josh Gattis has done a great job of creating mismatches and not putting a lot on Cade McNamara’s plate,” said Leinhart. “But what he has put on there, he’s executing at a high level. He doesn’t take a lot of sacks, he’s got a great offensive line. He gets the ball out fast and he doesn’t turn the ball over.”
Brady Quinn also talked about OC Josh Gattis, and the game plans he creates for the Wolverines offense.
“This is what I love about Josh Gattis in his third year at Michigan, said Quinn. “He’s gotten comfortable to have foundational plays early in games, and he builds off of them. … He’s finding ways of getting (playmakers) touches. It just shows you the growth of a play-caller.”
