Michigan Football: Who's Up/Down on the Wolverines' Running Back Depth Chart?

Another Saturday, another win for rookie coach Brady Hoke and his Michigan Wolverines.

This weekend's triumph, a 31-3 romp over in-state "rival" Eastern Michigan, was undoubtedly the Wolverines' most comprehensive of this young season. But there are still several significant issues that need to be dealt with prior to the kickoff of the Big Ten conference schedule.

Though he struggled throwing the ball, quarterback Denard Robinson scampered for 198 yards and a touchdown—more than doubling his yardage through the air—as Michigan totaled 376 yards on the ground.

But the Wolverines' production from the running back position continues to be a bit of a problem.

With Vincent Smith, Fitzgerald Toussaint, Stephen Hopkins, Michael Shaw and Thomas Rawls all pining for carries—and none really stepping to the forefront thus far in 2011—Hoke will still have some decisions to make going forward.

But based on this weekend's performance, there will still be a hierarchy heading into next weekend's tilt with San Diego State. Let's take a look at where things stand today.
