At the beginning of the Rodriguez era Brian envisioned symmetry in the renovation of the Big House and the rebuilding of the Michigan football program with the anticipated arrival date of 2010. He was convinced Rodriguez would get at least 4 years to see through his vision since it was a fairly radical departure from Michigan’s traditional offensive identity. While Rodriguez was able to recreate Michigan’s offensive identity in the original timeframe because of defensive failings Rodriguez only lasted three years.
So, now it’s 2011 and Hoke is the new Man and it strikes me as a good time to mark down expectations. Where do we have to be in 2013 and 2014 for you to be satisfied with the trajectory of the program?
Personally by the end of 2013 I think it's fair to expect at least one ten win season and a long term outlook at least on par with any big ten team. Thoughts?
