Here’s a look at the best, worst, and most realistic scenarios for Michigan football in the 2023 season.
The Michigan football season is just two weeks away. It’s been a long wait, but the 2023 season will be here before we know it.
It’s certainly been one of the most anticipated seasons in Michigan football history. The Wolverines are fresh off back-to-back Big Ten titles and many believe that U-M has a team that can compete for a national championship.
Whether that’s realistic or not, we’ll get to that in a minute. It’s getting close to the time to lock in 2023 season predictions for Michigan football, but first, here’s a look at the best, worst, and most realistic scenarios for the Wolverines.
Best-case scenario: national championship
If everything goes right, Michigan football can win the national title. It’s going to take an elite season from J.J. McCarthy and a lot of our bold predictions coming true, but this team is loaded with depth and talent.
Jim Harbaugh is on a mission to win a national title or a Super Bowl and this team will be one of his best chances to do either.
McCarthy is the kind of quarterback Michigan has needed to win it all, but it also has two elite running backs, a great offensive line, and a defense that might be as good as any in college football.
The Wolverines also get Ohio State at home. Penn State will be tough and winning the Big Ten won’t be easy, but the non-conference schedule is fairly simple and it feels like it could finally be the year for the Wolverines after a 26-year drought.
