This article from Athlons is likely the biggest indictment of the Brady Hoke era! According to the magazine the Wolverines by far and away have the second best roster, based on recruiting, in the B1G. Ohio State is the runaway best roster in the conference.
If you look at this roster analysis, it bodes VERY well for a quick turnaround in Ann Arbor under Harbaugh. They aren’t at the level of the Buckeye but they certainly should be able to compete with Michigan State and Penn State.
Coaching in college is obviously paramount, more so than in any other sport. Michigan should have the guy in place to maximize this roster advantage in 2015.
