I know many NCAA FOOTBALL 14 fans lie in depths of this blog, and i figured many of you would appreciate a mini series, if this goes over well i will continue to participate in creating this.
Season one was filled with it's ups and downs. Michigan finshed it's regular season at 10-2, with wins over Michigan State (44-14) and Ohio State in Columbus (27-20). Michigan dropped the opener vs UNC (34-28) and unfortunately, at High Point Solution Stadium versus Rutgers (41-21),
Michigan represented the B1G East in the B1G Title game, and defeated Wisconsin by the score of 20-7. Michigan earned a bid to the Rose Bowl, where they defeated UCLA 31-14.
Michigan was well represented on the All American (9) and All Conference (14) teams. Chris Evans won the Heisman Trophy in a landslide. Evans carried the ball 297 times for 1621 yards, and punched in 14 TD's. Rashan Gary also had a humongous season. Gary tallied 41 tackles, 28 TFL and 19 sacks, earning himself the Lombardi award in his true sophomore season.
Your 2013 national champion was the Houston Cougars, who defeated Alabama by the score of 28-21.
The Off-season was relatively quiet. Michigan lost two players to transfer, Kareem Walker transferred to Pittsburgh for playing time, and Nico Collins trasnferred to the University of South Alabama due to home sickness. The Wolverines signed the 17th overall recruiting class containing 12 commits, incuding three five stars, four four stars, and five three stars NJ ATH Andre Moore, the number one overall player in the class, signed with Michigan.
During the Off-season Houston joined the Big 12, which was an evident move, considering the easy road they traveled playing in the American Conference. BYU filled their spot in the American, leaving the Independents.
Michigan starts the 2014 season ranked 4th overall, and has renewed the rivalry with ND. I predict another 10-2 season with loses to OSU, and ND. I will report back in a few days with the results. Any questions regarding the season leave below, and ill do my best to give you that answer.
