BTN Tour: Michigan Football Preview

Dave Revsine, Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith visited Michigan practice during our BTN Football Tour this August. After three unsuccessful seasons under Rich Rodriguez, who went 15-22, the Wolverines hired Brady Hoke, a Michigan man. Hoke turned around San Diego State and Ball State at his last two stops, and that’s what he hopes to do at Michigan. The Wolverines will switch to a pro-style offense, but the coaches swear they won’t stifle Denard Robinson. Michigan opens the season Sept. 3 against Western Michigan. Watch all of our Michigan Preview video inside.

How will Al Borges’ pro-style offense affect quarterback Denard Robinson, a dual-threat star? Let’s hear from the man in charge of Michigan’s offense.

One thing’s for sure: Greg Mattison knows defense. Wherever he’s been recently — Michigan, Florida or the Baltimore Ravens — he’s coached a talented and stingy defense. Now, he must rebuild a leaky Michigan unit.

Which Wolverines do Coach and Howard think Big Ten fans should look out for in 2011? Find out below.
