They say it’s easy to have a good plan until you get hit - I guess the football equivalent of that is that it’s easy to feel confident until you lose a game. Michigan played around in September, relying on comeback performances in the second half of games to pull out respectable (enough) wins. But that formula was only going to work for so long, and it finally bit the Wolverines on Saturday.
Now, the AP and Coaches Polls have had their say. Michigan dropped ten slots to #17 in the AP Poll, and dropped nine slots to #16 in the Coaches Poll as well.
Welcome to 2017.
It’s hard to say the Wolverines don’t deserve this - in fact, Michigan fans could see the writing on the wall throughout the season leading up to this point. We’ll see if a punch to the face is what this team needs to tighten their focus and their pride and start winning on both sides of the ball.
Will Michigan bounce back from this?
