To me the majority of it is on the players, RR knows how to coach. In 08, there was no Fing way he was winning with idiots like threet or sheridan running a spread, along with a bunch of young offensive players who couldn't hold onto the ball.
This season will come down to if michigan turns the ball over or not. It is what separated us from an 8 or 9 win season last year and it will be the same way this year. It won't matter how much better we are talent wise if Tate and Denard continue to have butterfingers and everyone else fumbles it when someone pushes them. Im hoping to god we have a positive turn over ratio this year. If we don't i expect 5 or 6 wins again.
