Another football season is fast looming larger for the Wolverines, their 132nd.
Another new season, repleat with new coaches, new defensive and offensive schemes, and to compound the imponderables, it is also the advent of the now split in two twelve team Big Ten with Legends and Leaders divisions, a championship title game, and a new adversary in the formidable Nebraska Huskers.
Obviously first year Head Coach Brady Hoke faces real challenges in his first go round as the head Wolverine football cheese. Serious challenges. Recent Swiss cheese Wolverine defenses were aggravated by recruiting defiencies which in turn diminished the defensive talent pool. This, with other problems, resulted in a last place defensive finish in the team’s previous season. There was a problem implementing schemes, and inexperience. Special team debacles were at times a catastrophe.
