ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The spring game has ended and while Michigan coach Brady Hoke wasn't entirely pleased with the play of the defense -- particularly up the middle -- there were things he had to be encouraged by.

For the first time since at least 2008, Michigan will enter a season with some momentum on defense following an 11-2 season and a secondary that might be the deepest in the Big Ten.
