On 247 I have a post up explaining how Michigan needs run game variety to find success on the ground against ND.
Notre Dame runs a 2-gap 3-4 defense with three very large men anchoring the defensive line at the point of attack. Because of that, combined with their fast flowing LBs, they formed one of the best run defenses in the country last year and will likely be similar this year. Michigan, now looking primarily like a zone running team, will need to find success with a run game variety if they want to move the ball on the ground under the lights. In this post, we will discuss how Michigan will mix up the zone stretch with the lead counter and why that will be essential to rack up rushing yards.
