There Are 67 Days to Michigan Football

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

Waiting for the opening Saturday of college football is agonizing. All we want is 13 weeks of Brent Musberger "pardner" one-liners, the buzz of Michigan Stadium in late November, and jokes about the Bowl Championship Series. Fear not, bleary-eyed traveler. This is a continuing series intended to get through the long, hot summer and back to the glory of football season.

No Michigan fan wants to admit that a 3-9 season was actually a thing in 2008. The last time the Wolverines had a losing season was 1967, two years before Bo Schembechler came to Ann Arbor. It speaks to the enormous pedigree of winning the program possesses that it took 41 years before a truly awful football season was seen again. Incredibly, the 1967 team had Jim Mandich on their roster, one of the best tight ends Michigan has ever had. As we all know, however, the program itself had nowhere to go but up, and is arguably the most consistently successful one in college football.
