Desmond Howard: UM will be will be a contender in 3 years

When Jim Harbaugh returned to his alma mater in Ann Arbor to be the head coach of the Michigan Wolverines, fans immediately began setting their eyes towards a national championship. His first season hasn’t started off on the correct foot after a 24-17 loss against Utah last Thursday, but one Wolverine legend believes that it is just a matter of time before the team is back in the national championship picture.

According to College Spun, ESPN college football analyst and former Heisman Trophy winner at Michigan Desmond Howard believes that the Wolverines have all the tools they need to be a success. However, he believes it is going to be a few years before his former college home is relevant in the title picture.

Of course, Howard is basically obligated to say that he believes in the Wolverines. If he didn’t, fans would basically blacklist him from ever stepping foot in Ann Arbor again.

I don’t know if they are a few years away from being a national championship team again, but there’s nothing saying that they couldn’t be. I can tell you think though. Quarterback Jake Rudock is not the answer for them.
