The path to the College Football Playoff may not be as daunting as many Michigan fans might think.

Since Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh took over the program in 2015, expectations in Ann Arbor have been high – to put it mildly.

With back-to-back 10-win seasons in Harbaugh’s first two years, despite losing ten starters on defense and multiple key positions on offense, after a rousing start to 2017 — where Michigan trounced reigning the SEC East champion Florida Gators — it seemed like the maize and blue were going to pick up where they left off.

Not so fast.

Michigan’s youth showed, and the team slowed when incumbent starting quarterback Wilton Speight went down with injury in the team’s fourth game. Subsequently, the victory over Florida was the Wolverines’ closest to a signature victory in 2017 — which has left many fans reeling about the program’s direction moving forward.

However, things are not that bleak.

With former five-star transfer quarterback Shea Patterson joining the team this offseason, and a bevy of talent returning across multiple key positions, despite a tough schedule, Michigan is set up nicely to contend for the Big Ten and beyond in 2018.

WolverinesWire’s Isaiah Hole joined Mark Rogers for his show late last week to discuss why fans shouldn’t count the maize and blue out this upcoming season.
