By all accounts, the Michigan Wolverines football program is back on track. The Maize and Blue went out and lured former quarterback Jim Harbaugh from the NFL San Francisco 49ers. Michigan finished the season on a high note beating the Florida Gators 41-7 in the Citrus Bowl.
The Wolverines play Michigan State and Ohio State on the road this season. Michigan opens up the 2016 season hosting Hawaii on September 3rd in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Most in the NCAA Football landscape believes the Michigan Wolverines will contend for a BCS playoff spot.
Not so fast, my friends, the Wolverines won’t sneak up on anyone this season.
The Michigan offense had struggles last season, and it could be the same song this season. Michigan is also searching for a starting quarterback after the graduation of Jake Rudock.
The good news is the players are playing in the same offense for consecutive seasons. Offensive Coordinator Tim Drevno may have found a gem in the University of Houston transfer John O’Korn.
The new signal caller will have experienced targets to throw too. Tight End Jake Butt, and wideout Jehu Chesson are the best of the group.
The Michigan offense returns four of five offensive linemen to bolster a running game which averaged 158.2 yards per game.
O’Korn is going to be the key to success this season. The rest of the offense should be familiar with the way things work in their second season in the Harbaugh era.
The Michigan defense will be led by former Boston College coordinator Don Brown. Harbaugh is excited about having the best in the business in charge of the unit.
Brown led Boston College to the number-one overall ranking defensively last season and will have more talent in Ann Arbor.
Brown will have six starters returning on defense, which gave up just a little over 16-points per contest. The All-American secondary tandem of All-America cornerback Jourdan Lewis and rover Jabrill Peppers will be an asset for Brown.
The defensive line will be without NFL draftee Willie Henry. Taco Charlton and Chris Wormley are capable at getting to the opposing quarterbacks from their end positions.
The Wolverines are also stacked at the defensive tackle position. Look for the Wolverines to be stout again on defense but opponents will catch up to schemes.
The Michigan Wolverines are +235 to win the 2016-17 Big Ten Football Championship.
