3. Michigan football makes it to the National Championship

The past two years have shown that Michigan is capable of being one of the best teams in the country. Two straight wins over Ohio State. Two straight Big 10 championships. Two straight College Football Playoff appearances.

However, with two straight losses in the first round of the CFP, one could argue that Michigan football has hit its ceiling. With this year’s team being labeled the best Harbaugh’s had, the Wolverines need to show that this isn’t the case.

Past seasons have shown how team success can elevate a quarterback’s stature. Former Georgia quarterback Stetson Bennett may be the poster boy for this, as he became a Heisman finalist and a fourth-round pick.

While he was a solid quarterback, I don’t believe he earns those accolades if he puts up the same numbers at a different school. However, as quarterbacks lead their teams, they reap the most benefit from their team’s success.

For Jadyn Davis to maximize his star power in college, Michigan football has to be able to hit that next level. This year will serve as a great indicator of if they can do that.
