    On the plus side, he wasn't running a drug house.

    Orrr rumored to have failed a drug test, been suspended for it with the pretense that it was "violations of team rules" and THEN caught with weed while serving the suspension.

    It takes special kinds of players to pull those things off.

        Dave Brandon has confirmed that Tate Forcier is no longer with the team, due to academic reasons.

          Seems like most of the Michigan family is behind Hoke, which is a GREAT sign. I'm starting to get excited.
          I'm a state.

            Is it true that he's keeping the 3-3-5? I like him already.

              It's not that bad if you have players. UM does not have the players.

              OSU does run a similar setup quite a bit. DE drops into coverage and a safety plays the Star.

                He said that he thinks the 3-3-5 could work in the Big Ten, but he never said that was going to run it. He said multiple times that he would build the offense and defense around what best suits the players.

                  this is true. we are so loaded on defense it doesn't matter what we run. We ran a 3-3-5 against Arkansas and whipped their ass with it. Against Wisconsin though we always have 4 linemen and a SAM linebacker playing on the line of scrimmage over the tight end. Michigan recruited a bunch of a smaller, faster guys to play in a 3 man front, OSU had 3 DTs and a stand up linebacker/defensive end in their version.

                    he said it can work if done right. He gave all the credit to Rocky Long, but pointed out while the base was a 3-3-5 they had a lot of 4 man fronts and even 5 man fronts. But you have to have people educated in the system to run it.

                      DE-Keith Wells (transfers back in the spring)

                      I think Adam Bellamy might start at the DE opposite Williams since we run an odd front (43 over or straight 34) a lot of the time, especially if Wells is in the doghouse or out of shape or something. Bellamy and Garrett Goebel will play a lot at DE and DT that's for sure.

                      I think Dionte Allen from Florida State might start opposite Howard at CB, but it could be Clarke who knows.

                      I hope Braxton Miller tears it up this spring and summer and beats out Bauserman and Guiton for the QB job. No one knows how good Graham is, he missed most of his senior year with injury and most of his freshman year here with injury. Seems like Tressel would put in a runner like Guiton or Miller before he puts out a green QB like Graham who is solely a pocket passer.

                      We lose a lot on defense (Hines, Heyward, Rolle, Homan, Chekwa, Torrence, Gant, Larimore) but we'll still be really awesome on that side of the ball next year, that's how awesome Tressel is. Barnett and Moeller come back from injury, Sabino takes off his redshirt, Sweat moves to WLB where he will dominate, and either Storm Klein or Dorian Bell step into the 3rd LB spot. Howard and Bryant and Hankins all looked like they are ready to start as well based on their play this year.
                      DE - Simon
                      NT - Hankins
                      DT - Goebel
                      LEO - Williams

                      LB - Sabino
                      LB - Sweat

                      Star - Moeller

                      CB - Howard
                      CB - This will be a battle... Allen/Clarke/Bryant will all get their chance... I think Allen is the starter to start the year, but I think it could be another Andre Amos/Devon Torrence situation when eventually one of the younger guys win out

                      S - Johnson
                      S - Barnett

                            You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to lowlife again.

                            At least we got McNutt and Prater back. Plus, even though we lose both Epic safeties, I'm excited to see who we can get to replace them.

                                We will trade you one of our Caucasian safeties for James Morris. Deal? Deal.

                                Didn't Cam Heyward also have a big pick this year against Miami?
