During Michigan’s 42-21 win over Maryland, the offense had a handful of plays out of the pistol formation, had sets where there were two halfbacks in the shotgun on both sides of quarterback Shea Patterson, and even formations where Ben Mason was the tailback while Jared Wangler played fullback.
The Michigan offense is adding more wrinkles weekly if you pay attention.
With that in mind, we asked quarterback Shea Patterson about the schematics after the game, and whether we’ll be seeing more plays from the pistol in the future.
“I think (OL) Michael Onwenu said a few weeks weeks ago we haven’t even used a fourth of the playbook.”
When asked if that was an accurate assessment from Onwenu, Patterson said “it’s pretty accurate”.
So, how much of the playbook has been used now as Michigan sits at 5-1 heading into a pivotal stretch of the season? “Just keep doing what we’re doing with a few add-ons,” Patterson said with a grin.
On the day, Patterson went 19-of-27 for 282 yards with 3 touchdowns and 1 interception.
