We are 43 days and counting from the Brady Hoke era in Ann Arbor. How do you think Coach Hoke's first year in Ann Arbor will be? Hopefully better than Rich Rod's 3-9 abomination. But I sure am pumped to see my boys in Maize and Blue run from the tunnel and touch the banner on September 3 against Western Michigan, it has been a long off season since the ugly 52-14 defeat in last year's Gator Bowl against Mississippi State.
I don't know if it's just me, but ever since Brady Hoke has come on campus, I have this indescribable feeling of hope. The last three seasons have just been a treacherous nightmare, and I believe that Brady Hoke is the man that is going to rise the Maize and Blue back to prominence.
Not only am I excited for some Michigan football, but the new and improved Big Ten with 12 teams. Nebraska should definitely turn out to be a great add with a lot of tradition and a Big Ten style of football. I have always been jealous of all the other power conferences that got to have a championship game at the end of the year; now us Big Ten fans get to experience that as well.
Well, enough rambling on about how excited I am for the season, let's take a look at Big Blue's schedule and try to predict how Coach Hoke's first season will be in Ann Arbor.
