With Rich Rod out and Brady Hoke in, the future of Michigan Football is uncertain. Many believe that the hiring of Brady Hoke will lead to more rebuilding, but I think there is a way to avoid that. The way to avoid rebuilding is to do exactly what Rich Rod did not do when he got there: utilize the talent you have in the best way possible.
When Rich Rod was hired he decided he was going to run the spread option offense right from the start. As a result he had immobile quarterbacks trying to run the option; big, slow linemen that were expected to cover enough ground to get downfield and block for big, slow running backs, and a 3-9 record was the result.
When you switch systems it has to be a gradual process, so that way you can use the talent you have in the way that it is most effective, until you have players that fit your system. I do not believe Brady Hoke will have as hard of a time as Rich Rod did in utilizing the talent he has because Brady Hoke has some experience running the spread, just not the spread option.
Based off of what Hoke has done in the past, and the talent he has in place here is a look at my prediction of all 11 offensive starters come game time, on Sept. 3 at the Big House.
