Michigan coach Brady Hoke says this year's roster has depth

Every once in a while, as you’ve seen here before, we do like to keep everyone updated on the the kids in the Maize and Blue are going in Ann Arbor, and in today’s edition of that, after FOUR years on the job, Michigan coach Brady Hoke believes that his Wolverines team finally has some roster depth to create some true competition.

On a serious note, and to put the trolling to the side for a second, depth has been a big part of their problems the past few seasons. But now, as Hoke expressed, that might not be an issue any longer.

“I think we’re finally there,” Hoke said last week in an interview with SiriusXMRadio. “With this cycle of recruiting, I think (the players we’ve brought in now) fit the model of what we want to do from an offensive and defensive standpoint and I think our numbers really reflect that.

“It truly is competition across the board (right now). From the defensive and offensive line to the linebackers. Running backs. The quarterback position, even though we have a starter coming back, that’s a great competition. Wide receivers, tight ends. Everywhere.”

Still, if anything, their main problem is that quarterback position, that features two guys that were on the roster last season in Devin Gardner and Shane Morris, even thought some are insisting they don’t have a controversy in that department in Ann Arbor.
