The Michigan Wolverines had a surprising 2015 season under first-year head coach Jim Harbaugh. Many believed they would have a better go of things than in 2014, but nobody believed they would be a win away from competing for a conference championship and possibly a spot in the College Football Playoff.
The Wolverines finished 10-3 after a 41-7 beatdown of the Florida Gators in the Citrus Bowl. During a conference call on Thursday, ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit was asked his thoughts on Michigan in terms of the Big Ten by Angelique Chengelis of The Detroit News and he had a lot of good things to say.
Harbaugh certainly has the Wolverines on the right track for the future and they could really have a chance to do something big in 2016. Right now, the Wolverines have a top five recruiting class for 2016, so that could be all they need to take the next step and win the Big Ten for the first time since 2004.
