Michigan Football: Week 4 Spring Practice Stock Report Friday, March 28, 2014 12:28 PM (permalink)

Brady Hoke summed up the current state of his football team during his weekly press conference.
“We’re not any good yet, we have a long way to go.”

Last season’s 7-6 finish and the subsequent hiring of new offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier have brought an increased level of attention to spring practice.

A common refrain from players is how the pace of practice has changed from past years. The tempo of practice has been ramped up to increase plays per practice session to help players adapt to the new offense.

Really wish we could have a split-squad scrimmage for the spring game...these public practices are getting tiresome, though I understand the reason for them.

One position group that definitely needs the additional reps is the offensive line. With Erik Magnuson and Joey Burzynski (both out with injuries) and replacements needed for Taylor Lewan and Michael Schofield (lost to graduation), the competition is wide open.

Hoke revealed that center Graham Glasgow has returned to practice after a brief suspension "for a violation of team expectations.”


This is exactly what I said a few months ago...it was going to be a good thing and healthy for this team to graduate Lewan and Shoefield so these young bucks could grow up together, make mistakes together and share successes together. And I thought Nuss would simplify things as Borges was in WAY over his head with his OL schemes. That said, this unit is still a complete and utter mess...with A LONG way to go to be productive. But at least now I feel as if we might be making progress as opposed to treading water.

Go Blue!!
