Well, I think they're badly coached, and I question the commitment of their owner (the U of M).
I'd find another team B4P (ref: Vikings).
Seriously though, that team beat nobody this year. Their best game was against Michigan, a loss which really started a downward spiral to their season.
"The Tandem" gives them a chance to compete next year, but I just don't see anyone in the Big 10 beating out Michigan next year.
I'd call it very early:
A chance for the Goph's to compete for #2 at best I would think.
