All week long, I’ve been writhing about this game. Heck, all offseason I’ve pointed to this game as one that scares the maize and blue blood out of me.
SDSU brings 2 top notch, potential NFL skill players to town in Ryan Lindley and Ronnie Hillman at QB and RB respectively, and they’re both very talented. If you look at the balance they have, the number of looks they’ll give you, its exactly what Michigan OC Al Borges wants Michigan to look like down the road. Pro style passer, tough running back, and knock your socks off offensive line.
On the defensive side, SDSU is exactly what former coach Rich Rodriguez wanted. Fast, undersized, blitzing from everywhere (Hoke stated they’d blitz from the kitchen if they could).
The keys for Michigan will be pressure from the DL. If Lindley has time, he will find his targets. In the snippets of film I’ve watched, he hasn’t seen much of any, how will he handle it?
