Big Ten looks to regain credibility among college football's elite

Spring practice starts: March 15
Spring game: April 12
What to watch
• It's another ho-hum spring in Ann Arbor, just with a new coach (Rodriguez), a new offense and no quarterback. Georgia Tech transfer Steven Threet, who has yet to throw a pass in college, competes for the starting QB job with David Cone (one collegiate pass attempt) and Nick Sheridan (no pass attempts). Good luck with that.

• Whoever wins the coveted quarterback job needs someone to block for him, and the Wolverines must replace their two top linemen (left tackle Jake Long and center Adam Kraus) and two other veterans (Alex Mitchell and Jeremy Ciulla). Perry Dorrestein backed up Long last year and will get a good look this spring.

• The defense will be in the backdrop, but the Wolverines still must find replacements for their top four tacklers. Obi Ezeh might move from middle linebacker to strongside 'backer, filling Shawn Crable's spot but creating a new opening in the middle.

What we know: The spread offense arrives as one of its architects, Rich Rodriguez, begins his tenure as coach.

What we don't know: Almost everything: the starting quarterback, the wide receivers, the running back, the offensive line, the safeties.

How the Wolverines can win the league title: Swiftly grasp Rodriguez's offense and win key early home games (Wisconsin and Illinois).
