Josh Gattis Says Michigan Won't 'Beat Ourselves' In 2020

But did he figure out how to beat Ohio State?

The University of Michigan football team is rich with history. Only problem with talking about history, is the fact the Wolverines haven't created much recently.

Michigan last won the Big Ten in 2004 and last beat its arch rival, Ohio State, in 2011 and have lost 15 of the last 16 against the Buckeyes. 

The Wolverines did seem to find their way offensively under Josh Gattis in 2019 and will look to expand on that in 2020. While watching film of last season's Ohio State game, Gattis said something interesting via Twitter on Monday. 

"Corona may limit us to work from home...... but don’t think we’re sleeping! 2019 is over but the lessons learned live on! 2020 we won’t be so kind to beat ourselves ... The BluePrint is out! We have only thing on our Mind! #ARealOne."

The play Gattis is watching shows Giles Jackson's 22-yard touchdown run on the first drive of game, which gave Michigan a 6-0 lead. The Wolverines wound up losing 56-27, in part due to two turnovers on offense.

Ball security was an issue for Michigan throughout the season. Are these the type of corrections Gattis is referring to? And does the blueprint entail more "speed in space" plays such as this end-around to Jackson? 

This could just be coach-speak, but what do you make of the tweet?
