I feel like I missed out on having President @SantaJOno while I was at Michigan! Love this energy from the school pres https://t.co/S0hGd8qmO3— Dannie (@dannierogers___) January 16, 2023
Michigan has not been a preseason top-three team since 1993.— Zach Shaw (@_ZachShaw) January 16, 2023
With Jim Harbaugh, Blake Corum, JJ McCarthy, Donovan Edwards, 8 defensive starters and 33/44 two-deep players back from a 13-1 team, the Wolverines not only should crack the top three, but have a case for No. 1.

Jim Harbaugh did call the Broncos this afternoon to let them know that, despite their talks, he will in fact be returning to Michigan.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 16, 2023

Yes, Harbaugh called the U-M pres., not the AD. I'm sure the deal could not have been done w/o the AD, but probably true it wouldn't have been done w/o the president, either.— John U. Bacon (@Johnubacon) January 16, 2023
And no, not a great look for the AD-coach relationship. Speaks for itself.
