The last time Michigan played on its home field it suffered a bitter 42-41 defeat to rival Ohio State on the way to a 7-6 finish that would cost offensive coordinator Al Borges his job.

Now, the team returns to Michigan Stadium with Brady Hoke’s coaching tenure hanging in the balance. Michigan needs a strong season to erase any doubt about his immediate future in Ann Arbor.

Hoke had announced the spring game will be more of an open practice and not a split-squad competition, but fans will be watching for signs that new offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier has improved the offense.

The disappointment of last season and the building pressure to win a Big Ten title has placed a spotlight on key players who will need to perform will if the team hopes to be a force in the Big Ten next season.
