Hoke Stretches Spring Schedule to Overhaul Offense - Monday, March 03, 2014 10:51 AM

Spring practice has begun in Ann Arbor, Mich., but youwouldn’t know it by the weather. An early start combined with the lingering effects of the polar vortex has Michigan practicing indoors as snow and ice remain piled up outside.
 
The uncharacteristic sub-zero temperatures match the general mood after last season’s 7-6 finish.

LTT was a backup, maybe even a 3rd stringer at this point and is only out two weeks, Bryant has been hurt so much throughout his career that considering him a loss is a definite stretch, and it's Magnuson that is out not Glasgow.
 
OL always have minor shoulder injuries and sitting out the spring is not a huge issue for Mags. Getting Dawson reps may not be a bad thing at all.

We already knew about Bryant and Magnuson. Bryant retired and Mags had shoulder surgery. We can survive without Tully-Tillman. Although, I have no idea what that kid brings to the table because when he arrived on campus last year he was a blob and redshirted. Maybe he's gotten fit and was ready to roll, who knows...but don't think he was going to start and he'll be lucky to be part of the 2 deep.

Go Blue!!

Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.

tOSU has to replace 4 offensive linemen.  At least ours have a years worth of experience under their belts, but we are loosing two NFL caliber guys

I can't wait to hear the explanation if/when O$U O-line doesn't suck balls like ours did last year even though they have 1 returning starter.
 
Youth is a convenient excuse but complete BS IMO when it comes to to explaining our O-line issues. Sure it exacerbated the issues, but it was not THE issue.

Don't get that wild animal started on the DBs either. That's a whole different ball game. He has less than 5 DB coaches in the entire country he'd take coaching his unit, and Nick Saban isn't one of them.

This.
OSU won't skip a beat-teams that are well-coached usually don't.  Since the day Rod stepped on campus to today this has been the worst stretch of mediocre lineman and line play I've ever seen at Michigan and there isn't an ounce of proof that it will somehow be better.  In fact, it stands a very good chance of being even worse than last year and I didn't think that could be possible.  Doing something wrong for 3 years is not experience-it's just doing sh** wrong-so even the "experienced" guys we have coming back scare me.

Lies!!!!
 
You`ll have to forgive me for wanting quality coaches. I don't think that's unrealistic.
