Will Hoke's Luck Hold?
In my fifty years of serious U-M football watching, this pre-season was the most difficult for me to parse. Will the 2011 Wolverines be any good? Will they be awful? The strands of information are a tangle of competing uncertainties.
After the spring game, I posted a note on Brian Cook's MGoBlog, suggesting that the Wolverines' beleaguered 2010 defense, perhaps the worst in Michigan history, might be "average" or even "above average" in 2011.
