INSIDE MICHIGAN ATHLETICS knows football, he understands the game really well. He has great in- stincts. Now that he has a year in the system, some of those instincts will show up even more than they have, and that's scary." — Offensive coordi- nator Al Borges on senior QB Denard Robinson's potential in 2012 play out, playing at a high level. If he has one good play, he's got to put two together, and then three to- gether. That's it in a nutshell. He has shown he has what you're looking for a play here and there, a couple there. Now he's got to show he can do it consistently." — Defensive coordina- tor Greg Mattison on the task ahead of defensive tackle Will Campbell in 2012 "We need to see him, play in and too much." — Departing senior cap- tain Luke Glendening on why Michigan hockey rarely survives an offseason without an early departure wants to keep playing, so everyone is disappointed after a loss. But we had a great group of guys that played their tails off. We won a Big Ten cham- pionship, which has only happened 13 times in Michigan history. It hasn't happened in 25 years. We feel good." — Michigan basketball coach John Beilein reflecting on the season after a loss to Ohio in the NCAA Tournament "Everybody, at this time of year, would have been without their catalyst.

Fresh- man Glenn Robinson III will be the team's third NBA progeny (along with Tim Hardaway Jr. and Jon Horford), and it'll also add the country's top power forward recruit, Mitch McGary. While he may not have a Tyler Hans- brough- or Kevin Love-like impact as a freshman, McGary should form a stout interior tandem with Jordan Morgan." —'s Luke Winn on ranking U-M No. 5 in his preseason top 25 for 2013 wanted to be a part of this team. I never thought I'd be in this position, win championships, and it's bitter- sweet. I'm happy with the career I've had, but you never want to give up a goal that ends your season and I've done that the last three years, and now to end my career, with overtime losses.
