'Young' is getting old as an excuse for Michigan football's failures

Youth no longer offers full absolution for repeated lapses in execution. These first- and second-year players were part of those highly ranked recruiting classes that put the wind at Hoke’s back the last two years despite poor on-field performance.
After a season-win total that has gradually shrunk from 11 in year one to seven last season, Hoke seems to be hoping for another free pass from criticism. But there’s only so much validity left in playing the youth card.
The only way to restore confidence in the direction of this program is for those young five-stars we keep hearing about living up to that hype.
As much as I can't stand this dude, he's spot on with this article. Myself and most posters here have been saying the same thing too.
Ohio St.'s actions are not unlike their lower intestine: stinky and loaded with danger.
