Michigan Team Report



Rich Rodriguez will do things 'His Way' at Michigan


Lloyd Carr protected his players. Rodriguez pushes them.

They’ve never been better conditioned than they are now. They’re leaner, faster and less likely to run out of gas in the fourth quarter as previously.

“I don’t agree that we were soft,” said junior defensive end Brandon Graham, “and I certainly never want it to come across that way. But we’re definitely getting pushed further in conditioning and practices now than we did before.”

- Damniit... I had a good feeling about this guy, plus he lives really close to me right now.  Hopefully he'll still go Michigan.

Jackson: Shaw and McGuffie are my best running back class ever


Jackson said Shaw is a slasher, and McGuffie is a jump-cutter, which allows him to run between the tackles well. Their speed, though, is one common trait Jackson is drooling over.

“It's a hell of a deal to have two guys like that because, to me, if you miss them at the line of scrimmage, 90 yards later, you'll find the results,” Jackson said.

Beside the big play, it’s a finer technique Jackson is focusing in on with the freshmen backs, one Hart excelled at — not fumbling.

"All the reports coming out of camp lately have Nick Sheridan pulling ahead of Steve Threet in the race to the number quarterback. Whoever gets the nod will be asked to manage the offense, which will to at least some extent include running."

College football countdown: Nos. 21-25


25. Michigan. Wait --- Rich Rodriguez is actually going to make headlines for his team rather than for wrangling for dollars with his former employer? No way.

The Wolverines will take a step back this season as Rodriguez implements his own schemes and the long lineage of Bo Schembechler and his former assistants fade away. They'll long be remembered, and all those Big Ten titles of the last 40 years will loom over Rodriguez until he gets one or two of his own.

If Michigan can (a) survive its opener against Utah and (b) toss up five wins in the Big Ten, this probably won't be too much of a headache. But if not, missing a bowl for the first time since 1974 is not impossible.
