Ranking the Hardest Games of the 2014 Schedule - Monday, March 17, 2014 10:30 AM

The honeymoon is over for Brady Hoke in Ann Arbor, Mich. The universal adulation he enjoyed after his 11-2 first season waned during the 8-5 campaign which followed and completely evaporated after last year’s 7-6 finish.
 
...Three critical games will determine the success of this season. The challenge for Hoke is that even a 9-3 finish will be considered a failure if his team loses to all three of its traditional rivals.

The good news is UM only plays 4 times in November this year, and two of the games are Indiana and Maryland at home, so there's no way they are losing 4 times in November in 2014. The bad news is the road schedule is very tough.

Given the easy home schedule and the roady in NJ, the minimum expectation for wins should be 8.
