"I tell the kids I recruit that Michigan is not for everybody. I tell them it's hard here. You have to give a lot to succeed. You have to know how to embrace the pressure and make it a positive thing. Expectations are very high every year. Anything less than a Rose Bowl, at least, is considered a failure."

We could have done the same thing in Rich Rod's first year. If Shafer was allowed to run his own style of defense I'm sure we could have beaten Toledo, Purdue and Northwestern. Maybe we beat Utah or MSU and that gets us to 7 wins. Honestly, that defense had a lot of experience especially on the line and our secondary wasn't as decimated as it would become in 2009. The biggest problem i had with Rich Rod that year was starting McGuffie and Shaw over Minor and Brown. We saw what Minor could do against Penn State and i have no doubt he would have done the same against Utah in the first game.
