Most realistic

The Wolverines might lose a game sometime along the way, but I think that Michigan will have the horses to beat Ohio State again.

It’s not going to be easy. Neither is beating Michigan State or winning the Big Ten for that matter. Penn State is a legitimate threat. Wisconsin, Iowa, and Nebraska should all be much better too.

As long as Michigan beats Ohio State, it will get where it needs to go. The Wolverines will likely make it back to the playoff once again. It’s also realistic to expect Michigan football to reach the national title game.

Michigan would have beaten TCU if it didn’t have a number of turnovers and self-inflicted wounds. With another year of seasoning, McCarthy will be one of the best quarterbacks in the country and Michigan will wind up playing Georgia for the national title.

Yet, beating the Bulldogs might not be realistic at this point. Michigan can do it if everything goes right, but Georgia is the best college football program right now for a reason and it’s hard to predict them losing until it actually happens.

Next. Every former Michigan football player in the hall of fame. dark

It’s possible. Just not realistic.
