The Michigan Wolverines are ready to get a new era of football started in 2015 with head coach Jim Harbaugh taking over the program. Harbaugh is going to be a major upgrade over what they have had in recent history, so the Wolverines are hoping he can turn things around.
Michigan has a great football tradition and they showed some of that off in a short video clip that they posted to their Twitter account.

It will be very interesting to see what ends up happening this season in Harbaugh’s first year as their head coach. He isn’t likely going to turn them back into a championship contender in 2015, but they do expect to take a big leap forward.
Michigan football was at one point considered to be a yearly contender to win a title, and they will get back to that status. Harbaugh needs a few years to get his recruiting classes on board to take the next step, but small improvements will be made. This is a chilling 17-second video, and it shows just a small part of the greatness that the Wolverines have had over the years.
All of that being said, hopefully the Wolverines do take a step this season under Harbaugh. It has been tough to see them go through so many years of mediocrity, and the fan base is ready for them to bounce back.
Expect to see their record take a leap forward from their 5-7 record from last season, and the next few years should be very special.
