I refuse to read the SI link, it was written by Michael Rosenturd.

“I don’t think Michigan can do any better than Brady Hoke. He really is the kind of person you want your kids to play for.” [Ted Spencer...the admissions director at the MICHIGAN.]

He is, he really is, and no, that doesn’t mean he can go 7-6 every year. Hoke knows that. He has no illusions. But it does mean that Michigan will probably give him every chance to succeed, no matter what fans or analysts think.

College football has changed so much over the course of the last decade that it is almost unrecognizable. Hoke believes his ways still work. Maybe we should all hope he is right.

There's NO doubt IMO that, if the OL can progress to just "adequate", we could FINALLY be playing in Indy in Dec.

But, for some reason, Hoke & his coaches are having a heck of a time developing all that talent & potential into a traditional Michigan "strength"!

I figured as much based on the titles.  The usual talking points from the AD.  I thought UM was supposed to start playing "Big Boy" football last fall?

The ESPN article is a good read
 
 


Michigan has upgraded its football investments in recent years: a $226 million renovation of Michigan Stadium; opening the spectacular Al Glick Field House in 2009; a recently completed $9 million renovation of Schembechler Hall; and shelling out for top assistant coaches such as defensive coordinator Greg Mattison ($851,400 salary in 2013) and offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier ($830,000 salary this year).
 
But other Big Ten programs have made similar moves, with facilities and with coaches. The initiatives certainly haven't hurt, but how much have they helped? The league still isn't winning national championships or dominating in recruiting.
 
What the Big Ten needs, league observers say, is for its traditionally great programs to be great again.
 
"Four of the seven most successful programs in the history of college football are in the Big Ten: Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State and Nebraska,"

 
 
"Only the good ones come to Michigan"
