Are former four-star recruits ready to become real stars? Wednesday, March 05, 2014 2:40 AM (permalink)

After an 11-win campaign and a Sugar Bowl victory in his first year in Ann Arbor in 2011, coach Brady Hoke has regressed to 8-5 and 7-6, respectively, in the past two seasons. His biggest wins have come in February, with the Wolverines landing top-10 recruiting classes in '12 and '13, but Michigan fans are still waiting for most of those blue-chip prospects to deliver. The offensive line, in particular, could not have been worse last fall; it caused problems for quarterback Devin Gardner and the running backs -- and that was before the unit lost All-America tackle Taylor Lewan to the NFL draft. New offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier, formerly of Alabama, needs to see significant growth from former highly touted lineman Kyle Kalis, as well as rising sophomore tailbacks Derrick Green and De'Veon Smith.

Go Blue!!

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