Standing in front of board that shows his team’s 2008 schedule, Michigan football coach Rich Rodriguez addressed the media today at Schembechler Hall after the Wolverines’ third day of fall practice.
But unlike the spring when the board was filled with all 12 opponents, just “Aug. 30 UTAH” preceded 11 blank lines.

Fifth-year senior Morgan Trent and sophomore Donavon Warren comprise the Big Ten’s second-best cornerback combination, trailing just Malcolm Jenkins and Donald Washington at Ohio State.

Redshirt sophomore Obi Ezeh leads a deep linebacking corps. Right now he’s penciled in as the starting middle linebacker, but he could end up starting on the strong side. Or not at all.
With six returners, four talented freshmen and a scheme that allows flexibility between the three linebacker positions, this unit should be good, but there are plenty of unknowns.

Senior nose tackle Terrance Taylor leads Michigan’s strongest unit. Taylor didn’t initially buy into the new coaching staff’s ideas, but he seems full speed ahead now. A dominate force on the line’s interior, Taylor could play his way into the first round of the NFL Draft after deciding to return for his final year with the Wolverines.

Junior Greg Mathews quickly became the No. 1 receiver when Mario Manningham and Adrian Arrington left early for the NFL.

Rodrigo Gaya / Daily

CHICAGO — Holding a 10-point lead, the Michigan State football team was seven minutes away from snapping a seven-game losing streak against arch-rival Michigan last year.
But the Wolverines came back to win 28-24, leaving the Spartans heartbroken yet again. Then senior Michigan running back Mike Hart piled on, comparing the Spartans to his little brother. The two teams play again Oct. 25, and Hart’s comments are still fresh in some Michigan State players’ minds.
