Michigan Football: Wolverine Odds and Ends — Part I
Lets be positive. The good news when a position group or individual has a bad spring game is it does not allow any sort of complacency to set in. I think our players really go at it in summer.
If things continue to trend the way they did in spring, then the Cass Tech discussion may have to change. Lewis is probably a sure starter, RJS has really made strides, Hill is probably one of most athletic players, and Dawson still has shot to become a starter. In addition, Hollowell (at least as far as I am concerned) is a good player.
Just a quick comment on Coach Hoke. I really like him. I think he is great for Michigan. However, I understand the discussion on whether he can be a Head Coach at a school like Michigan (which wants to be a top 10 football school). Jury is still out, but it is my opinion that all the pieces are in place for Michigan to compete. Would we win the SEC, probably not, but we don’t play in the SEC, we play in the Big 10 which there are a handful of teams that can compete with the top 10 BCS schools. Coach Hoke needs to show he can bring the program forward (this year) and the only way to do that is to win one of those tough games on the road.
As I continue to analyze the spring practices, I continue to believe while this years recruiting class is small, it is crucial we get some impact players on defense and skilled positions. We need a real good athletic linebackers (maybe 2 — 1 MLB and 1 Sam). Then we need at least 2 top Defensive Ends’s. Those are hard to find. On offense, I still prefer we recruit an athletic type quarterback and of course some top wide receiver’s.
