Michigan Season 2 Preview
Official Wolverine preview coming soon.....
Road to Redemption
Last year was a surprisingly great year for the Michigan football program. Never before had expectations been so low in Ann Arbor, but the young kids stepped up and had much more success than anyone could have imagined. The young Wolverines took advantage of the opponentÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s mistakes and capitalized in crunch time on their way to an 11-0 start to the season. However all the opportunistic play disappeared the last 2 games as they lost to rival Ohio State and USC in the Rose Bowl. The Wolverines head into this season with the foul taste of those games still fresh in their mouths. The road to redemption wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢t be easy but the Wolverines are excited to get back out on the field.

The Wolverines have a ton of talent this year, and should be able to compete for the National Title. It is all going to come down to the offense. Last year the offense was just terrible and could not win games for UM, the unit basically just tried to not lose the game. This year the new playbook is in place and hopefully will lead to much more success for Michigan, no matter who is under center. The Wolverines will have little time to break in the new playbook with early season match-ups against #10 Alabama and #23 Texas AM before the Big-10 conference season kicks off. I fully expect this team to be in every game this year, and anything less than a national title berth will be a disappointment.
sounds like an exciting year for the Wolverines!
