This offseason the Wolverines have been looking for the marquee back to take some of the pressure off of Denard Robinson and it seems like every week, it is someone new. This week it appears to be Mike Cox. Cox has the size the coaching staff wants but has more speed than the bigger backs on the team as witnessed by his 68-yard touchdown jaunt on Saturday. "He can be the guy" says Al Borges.
Between Cox, Michael Shaw, Vincent Smith, Stephen Hopkins, and Fitzgerald Toussaint, it is a complete toss up as to who wins the starting job. And that is not counting incoming freshmen Thomas Rawls and Justice Hayes.
