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 extremely different views on the basketball and football teams. While confidence in one is on the rise the other is plummeting, according to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey.

After having the final game of the season against Ohio State canceled, brining to an end the 2-4 season, only eight percent of Michigan football fans said the team was headed in the right direction. That is a slight tick up from six percent last week following the Penn State loss but a fall from the 90 percent high point.

While the Wolverines won’t be competing for a national championship this season, there is still a debate on who deserves the fourth and final College Football Playoff spot. Fans were asked what team they think should join Alabama, Notre Dame and Clemson.

According to the results, nearly 50 percent of fans around the country believe that team should be Ohio State. No other team received more than 20 percent of the vote.

Hopes are still high for Michigan on the basketball court. The team has raced out to a 5-0 record. With the fast start, confidence in the program lifted to 97 percent, up from 94 percent a week ago.

Michigan will have an extremely difficult run through the Big Ten this season. However, according to fans nationally, the ACC is the best conference in the country, followed by the Big Ten.
