Previewing 6 Biggest Position Battles Heading into Fall Camp - Monday, July 21, 2014 11:52 AM

Brady Hoke enters his fourth season with a roster finally stocked with his own recruits. Looking to erase last season’s 7-6 finish, Hoke can eagerly expect a defense that is deep, talented and about to get better with the addition of top recruit Jabrill Peppers.
 
The offense is another story—graduation has taken a heavy toll, and key players need to be replaced as Doug Nussmeier looks to install his new system.

Good read. Phil, I'm curious about what you may be hearing in regards to Hoke's job security. Do you think there's a certain number of wins that he much achieve in order to keep his job beyond this season? I had heard back in early March that had Hoke not fired Borges, he would've needed to reach the Big Ten Championship game THIS SEASON in order to see 2015. Supposedly, the Nuss hire bought him at least one more year to produce a conference championship before he'd be in danger of losing his job. Things may very well have changed since then though (declining ticket sales, new school prez, very unpopular AD, etc).
