Brandon Graham Thinks the 3-3-5 is Partially To Blame For Michigan's Defensive Woes

"I’m surprised they didn’t stick with what Coach Robinson was running," Brandon Graham said of the 3-4 the team deployed in 2009, its first year under Robinson.

Ugh. As if you needed further proof that the 3-3-5 scheme came from Rodriguez' office and not from Greg Robinson. Ann Arbor dot Com talked with Graham fairly extensively about the defensive problems this year and Graham had some interesting things to say.

"Let Coach Robinson play his defense," Graham said. "Let him do what he knows. He was thrown off, I would say. I know the 3-3-5 is what he (Rodriguez) has been doing for so long. He’s just got to adjust to the Big Ten."

"You’ve got to have four down linemen. You’ve got to," he said. "Or five. You’ve got to stop them holes, and you got to get to the quarterback. You got to trust the cornerbacks are going to do their job."

You may now proceed to bang your head against the nearest wall.
