Thanks to Rod Beard for taking a few minutes to dodge an Ann Arbor police SUV with me. It was a great time. Check out our 2014 Michigan media day wrap-up in front of The Big House, shot by Jared Janssen of JJ Sports Video.
During his opening remarks, coach Brady Hoke announced that De'Veon Smith and Drake Johnson--yes, Drake Johnson--are the two top backs at the moment. That surprised me and I think it caught Rod off guard, too. Nonetheless, it's time for the backfield to get going or get left behind.
The Wolverines seem committed to the run game. That's where it starts.
