It's hard to think of a single thing the Wolverines did well in 2008, other than punting. The offense was sick, and not in the good way. Wolverine quarterbacks completed less than half their passes, while the running attack wasn't even good for 150 yards per game. The defense played acceptably on occasion; in fact, they were flat-out brilliant against Minnesota. But if you lose to Toledo in a season where the Rockets wound up firing their coach, and you end the longest bowl streak in college football, you just can't get a passing grade.

Still, while Wolverine fans might feel as though they're stuck in Dante's Inferno, the rest of us know they're just spending an evening in Borgnine's Sauna. Rich Rodriguez's first year at West Virginia was identically bad. Things got better.

2009 prognosis: Cautiously optimistic. "Up" isn't the only direction the Wolverines can go next season, but they were a very young team exploring the possibilities of Creepy Ninja Football(tm) for the first time. RichRod's track record brings some hope, but be not afraid: Punter Zoltan Mesko still has one more season of eligibility!
