Winovich will cement his legacy with another great performance

For those Michigan football fans that say this game doesn’t matter, why don’t you ask Chase Winovich what it means, because recently, he called it a must-win. He is also putting off surgery just to play.

That’s the kind of player that you have to stand and applaud. He could be a first-round pick in the NFL Draft and is playing in the Senior Bowl just like Karan Higdon, yet he isn’t sitting out. He doesn’t want the Ohio State loss to be his final result in a Michigan uniform.

With that said, I expect him to do everything possible to help Michigan win Saturday. As a senior, in his final game, the Peach Bowl means a lot to him, I can guarantee it. Legacy is important to Winovich and his would be helped with a win in this game.

If Michigan football wins this game and wins the Big Ten or takes the next step in 2019, this victory will be viewed as the jumping off point. That’s something that motivates Chase, who wants this program to be great. He also wants to be part of helping it get there. The truth is, he already has, but at the same time, he wants the Peach Bowl bad and he will play like it.
