Michigan will be better with Jim Harbaugh
There’s a reason Michigan only had the Jim Harbaugh suspension last until the start of Big Ten play because the head coach makes a big impact.
Harbaugh is one of the best coaches in college football. When he was in the NFL, he was one of the best and there’s no doubt about the impact he makes.
This Michigan football team hasn’t been quite as good as expected, but the Wolverines didn’t have their head coach and the first three games weren’t all that challenging.
Now, they are set to defend their Big Ten championship starting with Rutgers and Harbaugh will be back on the sidelines. That’s why I believe we’ll finally see a complete game from this Michigan football team, which will have us all feeling much better by Saturday afternoon.
Michigan football vs. Rutgers score prediction
Rutgers won’t be a pushover. The Scarlet Knights are solid on defense and the game will be competitive into the second half.
Michigan’s red-zone issues will rear their ugly head, but the defense plays outstanding and Michigan wins it 30-3.
