After rebounding from a tough loss to Iowa last week, Michigan beat a struggling Illinois team to secure its eighth win of the season. That win ensured that Michigan will win more games this year than in any season under Rich Rodriguez.

I don’t know if anyone could have honestly predicted that Michigan would have a chance to win 10 games in the first season under Brady Hoke. The job that he and his staff has done with this team deserves some major kudos.
