The Michigan Wolverines had a magical season in 2011, filled with an 11-2 record that surpassed just about everybody's expectations.
While the haters are quick to point out that Michigan had the luxury of eight home games and didn't have to play Big Ten winner Wisconsin or Penn St., nobody can take away the fact that the Wolverines were able to beat "Ohio" (Ohio State) and were able to win the Sugar Bowl.
Now the attention is focused on the 2012 season as Michigan gears up for year two in the Brady Hoke era. The schedule is much, much more difficult this year and will factor highly into how I believe the Wolverines will fare this season.
The Michigan Wolverines enter this season with 895 victories; just think, Michigan will be the first college to hit 900 wins!
