Film Room: Breaking down Michigan’s defensive philosophy

In an effort to expand our coverage this year, we’ve brought Gibson Pyper on board to do a regular feature — Film Room — on the X’s and O’s of the game. Pyper will be breaking down Michigan’s offense and defense as well as providing an in-depth schematic look at Michigan’s opponents. 

Pyper runs The Basketball Playbook, a website dedicated to the finer details of how teams execute and run both offense and defenses. He has extensive experience diagramming and breaking down how college and professional offenses work.
