Offensively, they arent much better, I thought De'veon Smith sucked last year, so that makes me doubt they have some elite RB waiting in the wings. The only reason I think they can be decent, is because they're returning their Oline, and QB. Wilton Speight is decent, but unless he improved a lot from last year, Michigan will be mediocre at best. I did think Chris Evans was better than De'veon Smith, which isint saying much. There's a chance their WR's will be improved if Donovan Peoples Jones is the real deal, but I dont like counting on unproven freshman. Finally I will be rooting for Tyrone Wheately, because we went to the same high school. I think Michigan is even close to Ohio State.
The Big 10 is pretty weak, but if anybody is going to compete with the Buckeye's it's gotta be Penn State.
The running backs were not much last year. A lot of that was the O-line also. Senior laden, but not dominate at all. Evans is bigger/stronger, Issac looked good in spring ball. So there is hope there. It's the running backs who learn to pass block that gets to start. Speaking of O-line, the starting five looked pretty good to me in spring ball. They had only a few snaps in the spring game with all five together, but they were pretty decent.
