Lost: Avery
Returners: Taylor, Stribling, Richardson, Countess, Hollowell, Lewis, Douglas

Safeties:

This group has to improve if Michigan is going to be better on defense. UM cannot continue to give up all those big plays. There is enough young skill to achieve that goal. It is time it happens.

Score: Fingers Crossed, Improved!
