NCAA Basketball: Minnesota at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NCAA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Michigan Wolverines fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

Michigan fans have mixed feelings as 2021 gets underway. While confidence in the basketball team is high, the football program has a lot to do to win over the fan base.

The Wolverines basketball team has climbed into the AP’s top 10. With that start, fans are understandably excited. According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey, 97 percent of Michigan fans believe the team is headed in the right direction. That number has held steady for two weeks in a row.

That confidence comes in the same week news broke that could play a big role in Michigan’s postseason life. The NCAA announced the entirety of the NCAA Tournament would be played in and around Indianapolis.

According to college basketball fans around the country, roughly two-thirds of fans think playing all of March Madness in Indianapolis is a good idea.

Michigan fans hope the basketball season goes a little smoother than the football season. However, after the season has ended, fans are feeling a little better about the program heading into the offseason. 28 percent of Michigan fans are confident in the team, up from 24 percent last week and a season-low of 6 percent earlier in the season.

Unfortunately for Michigan fans, Ohio State has had a remarkable season. That’s been headlined so far with a huge win over Clemson in the CFP Semifinal. That game was voted as the biggest surprise of bowl season.

With the win Ohio State advanced on to play Alabama in the CFP National Championship. According to nearly two-thirds of college football fans, Alabama will win another championship.
