Brady Hoke welcomes his team to fall camp this weekend. Michigan is looking to forget last season’s 7-6 finish that forced Hoke to shuffle his defensive staff and hire a new offensive coordinator. The changes have stopped the grumbling in Ann Arbor for now, but pressure is mounting for Hoke to deliver a Big Ten title.
With scores of students foregoing season tickets, per Nick Baumgardner of MLive.com, and Michigan’s weak home slate threatening to snap its consecutive attendance record, the focus now turns to the field, where Hoke faces a Big Ten division with both Michigan State and Ohio State blocking his team’s path to the Big Ten title game.
