Fans of the Michigan Wolverines football team had high hopes for their team when they hired legendary coach Jim Harbaugh four years ago, but his entire run with the team has a bit disappointing despite having an extremely talented roster every season. They have just fallen short every time they needed to win a big game. While it may be hard for Michigan fans to get overly excited after the recent disappointments, the Wolverines finally look poised to have the breakout season everyone has been waiting for since the hiring of the new head coach.

Michigan Wolverines

The Michigan Wolverines are coming off a solid 10-3 season that saw them finish as the 14th ranked team in the country. The team appeared to be ready to play for a championship until losing their final two games of the season. Despite this poor finish, there is a lot to like about the Wolverines entering the 2019 season. They are one of the few elite teams in the country returning the vast majority of their roster. They also made a key coaching change that should help invigorate the offense.

The biggest change the Wolverines made in the offseason was the hiring of Josh Gattis as offensive coordinator. Gattis plans to employ an uptempo short passing offense this season. This should help transform Shea Patterson into one of the most effective quarterbacks in the country. Patterson will get to rely on his elite accuracy to make easy throws to the receivers. This will let Mike Sainristil, Giles Jackson and the other speedy wide receivers to make plays in open space. The new offense should also make it easier for all of the young running backs to find open holes on a regular basis.

After scheduling a tough ranked opponent in the opening week the last two seasons, Michigan will open their season against the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders in 2019. This relatively easy opening game will give the offense an opportunity to grow and learn the new system before getting tested by a tough opponent. Nobody wants to get a loss in the first week of the season, so this is brilliant planning by the coaches.

Big 10 Conference Play

While the Wolverines will be tested on a weekly basis during Big 10 conference play, the fate of the team will likely come down to their clash against Ohio State in the final week of the regular season. Unlike last year, this key game is going to be played in front of the home fans at Michigan Stadium. If Harbaugh and the Wolverines can’t top the Buckeyes this year, then it likely will not happen in the foreseeable future.

The Wolverines have a talented team, but they also have to play one of the toughest schedules in the country. Finishing the regular season as the Big 10 champions with an 11-1 record seems like the most likely outcome for the Michigan football team this year. It will then come down to the playoff committee to determine if that is good enough to earn a spot in the College Football Playoff.
