The Wolverine’s players finally received their Sugar Bowl rings, and I must say, I think they are pretty sweet!
Brady Hoke brought the Wolverine’s to the Sugar Bowl and an 11 – 2 record. Hoke was dubbed the successor to the very unsuccessful Rich Rodriguez program, and was expected to bring the program back to the winning ways of the past. In his first season, he did just that. No one in their right mind would have predicted an 11 win season from the Wolverines, even if they were being led by one of the most dynamic quarterbacks, Denard Robinson, to ever play in a Michigan uniform.
Hoke has quite a lot to live up to now that he has set the bar so high, and next season won’t be a cake-walk for him either. The Wolverines will start their season against defending BCS Champions Alabama in Jerry World, and while some of their schedule appears to be pretty easy, there are always doubts when it comes to Notre Dame, Michigan State, Nebraska, and of course, the Urban Meyer led Ohio State Buckeyes.
