All that practice time and the best the Wolverines could do in 2008 was 3-9? Rich Rodriguez sits squarely on the hot seat as he enters his second season as coach, but he is catching a break from the schedule-maker. Michigan plays its first four games at home and has eight overall. The only challenge in the first month will come in Week 2 when Notre Dame visits Ann Arbor. If the Wolverines can go 5-3 at home, all they will need to do is win one on the road to return to postseason play. Poster designed by Old Hat Creative.
