I'll spare you my position by position optimism; I'm just curious if anyone else believes that Michigan can duplicate Auburn's success this season.
I'll only add this: The interior o-line will be better, as will Green and Smith. Also, If I were a betting man, I'd bet on Devin Gardner showing what a Michigan QB is made out of next season. He won't leave this university with the legacy of being the starting QB for a team that lost at least 5 games three seasons in a row. As for the defense, like the offensive line, I believe they go into even the offseason conditoning pissed off, and with a larger than average chip on their shoulders. To me this is the recipe of a major bounce back season; whether it's as big of a turn around as Auburn's remains to be seen.
