Wolverines look strong, Shoelace gone
Michigan may have recovered from its slide under Rich Rodriguez.
Brady Hoke took Michigan to the Sugar Bowl in his first year as the Wolverines' coach, but the team slipped to an 8-5 mark last season, and there's still work to be done in Ann Arbor.
Michigan must now move on without Denard Robinson, who was such a big part of the offense. Last year, Robinson was limited by elbow trouble, which allowed Devin Gardner to get a jump on quarterbacking the Wolverines. Gardner will take over full time in 2013.
The season opener is Aug. 31 at home against Central Michigan.
