CBS: Michigan football has the nation's fourth-toughest schedule in 2012
There's been one prevailing notion among college football writers and fans this offseason with regard to Michigan football coach Brady Hoke's second act.
If he wants to repeat his 2011 performance, he'd better find a way to navigate a merciless schedule.

"Year Two for Brady Hoke begins against the defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide in Arlington, Texas," Feldman writes. "Good luck with that one."
Feldman goes on to write how the Wolverines have very little breathing room beyond the Alabama game, as Air Force comes to Ann Arbor for week two. And after a breather against Massachusetts, Michigan travels to Notre Dame -- the team Feldman says has the most difficult schedule of anyone in America.
After the Fighting Irish, Feldman slots Washington and Oregon State at No. 2 and 3, respectively.
Michigan is the only Big Ten team on Feldman's list. It rounds out with No. 5 Kansas, No. 6 Mississippi, No. 7 Auburn, No. 8 Iowa State, No. 9 Cal and No. 10 South Carolina.
