ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan's football program has always had high standards, which is why a bowl appearance may not be enough to save coach Brady Hoke's job.
That being said, the Wolverines can find some joy in the fact that they're playing for a postseason berth this weekend, considering how poorly the season started.
"One thing about this team, they have been unified. They have stayed together," Hoke said. "They have probably listened to the stuff out there, and at the same time they've done a great job of shutting it off."
