Welcome to Michigan, Year 1 A.D. (after Denard). Michigan has spent the past two seasons discussing what would happen to its offense once the FBS all-time leading quarterback rusher, Denard Robinson, departed the program. Now the Wolverines are there, with a pro-style offense set to be unveiled. Quarterback Devin Gardner will be the key in his first full season as the starter. He'll need help, though. Michigan has questions at running back, on interior of the offensive line and at wide receiver -- other than Jeremy Gallon. Michigan's defense should improve by relying on a deep, talented back seven. With a favorable schedule, Michigan has an outside shot to make a BCS run. -- Michael Rothstein
