Michigan Coach Brady Hoke and defensive coordinator Greg Mattison will attempt to draw up the perfect formula to beat Alabama on opening night in 2012

The Michigan Wolverines have come a long way in just over a year under new head coach Brady Hoke. They finished 11-2, claimed a Sugar Bowl title and stand as one of the Big Ten's more formidable programs heading into a new season. 

Despite their return to success, the Wolverines are still a considerable distance from being truly considered one of the nation's top contenders.

If the reigning champions are going to fall on opening night, the following factors will have to play out perfectly for Michigan.
