Photo: The Michigan Football Team Had A 6 A.M. Workout At Michigan Stadium This Morning

Expectations aren’t too high for the Michigan football team this season. The Wolverines are a fringe top 25 team in most preseason polls and nobody is picking them to win the Big Ten.  A good season is likely needed to keep the Ann Arbor faithful happy, though.

Mailbag: Zak Irvin’s progression, Age, Defense

Dustin Johnston @zgordon5: What does Zak Irvin specifically need to work on the most to become “more than just a shooter”? Did he show that potential in HS? I guess more clearly: should we have a lot of optimism about Zak being able to truly be more than a shooter, or are there red flags?
