After the last 3 years (aside from our hoops team run to the tourney in 2008) things have looked bleak to say the least. Hope is on the horizon though.
Lets start with hoops, we are coming off beating MSU in the Breslin Center, which is the first time that has happened since 1997. This is a team filled with so much youth, and from what I've been able to tell, guys like Hardaway Jr., Evan Smotrycz , and Jordan Morgan look like they are going to become very good players. Go up one class and you have Darius Morris making a case to some day being the best PG in the Big Ten. Vogrich while he may be a defensive liability has a sweet stroke from beyond the arc. Then You have the "gritty" Zack Novak. This guy imhe has turned into the leader on this team. With Beilein bringing in a great recruiting class next year, the future is extremely bright. I except an NIT birth this year, and netxt year a tourney birth and possible competing for a Big Ten title .
Then we have football. A lot of folks were upset at the hiring of Hoke, but he has come in and turned what look liked an abysmal recruiting class, into something very respectable. We return nearly every offensive starter and now have a DC who is not only a very good recruiter, but he is also a guy who has coached Ed Reed and Ray Lewis. We've had tons of true freshman playing on defense this year, and those kids are all going to improve. I'm not going to say that MICH will run the table next year, but will any kind of defensive competence this team should be very good.
The bottom line mgobrethern is we are on an upward spiral, MICH is about to take the world by storm, things really are bright, just remember stay optimistic and GO BLUE
