It's safe to say the disaster of the Rich Rod era defense is about as close to an after thought as possible and that's a credit to Greg Mattison and what he's done with this defensive unit in just two seasons. However, that change will be tested here in year three as there are few "stars" that will be in the Michigan defensive lineup out of the gate and with only six returning starters back patience may be the key for fans.
One thing that could really help this team is some good news on the Jake Ryan front. He claims he'll be ready to go in October, but that would require him to be Adrian Peterson-esque and we're not buying that. However, even if he doesn't see a down on the field in 2013 there is plenty to like about what this defense offers in 2013 too.
It just may take a few games for it to all come together.no comments
