Hoke: Michigan probably deserves BCS bid 

November, 28, 2011
Two days after his team beat Ohio State for the first time since 2003 and a day after the latest BCS Standings decreed Michigan two spots from BCS eligibility, Wolverines coach Brady Hoke said he felt his team is deserving of a spot.

Even though he also knows there is nothing else Michigan can do to help itself.

"We’re not going to make that decision. The one thing I can tell you about this team, this is a team in this conference, the Big Ten, that’s won 10 games. It’s a team by that body of work is recognizable," Hoke said. "I like how we’ve played at the end of a season and how our guys have gotten ready to play and how they’ve represented Michigan. Those questions will be answered but we won’t have anything to do with it.
