ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- More than any group on the field, the offensive line is one that needs to have natural chemistry as well as knowledge of one another to be successful.

By midseason, this Michigan unit showed it had those qualities, and, really, this should have been expected. They were, for the most part, an experienced group -- having lost only guard Stephen Schilling to the NFL. But two fifth-year seniors returned in center David Molk and right tackle Mark Huyge along with standout left tackle Taylor Lewan.
