It has been a less than stellar season so far for the Michigan Wolverines football team. The Wolverines won nail-biters over Akron and Connecticut, while losing close games to Penn State and Nebraska.
Sitting at fourth place in the Legends Division with a 7-3 record is simply not acceptable for the Maize and Blue faithful. However, the Wolverines may be in a position to right the ship during the last three games of the season.
Michigan travels to Iowa (6-4, 3-3) this weekend and finishes the season with a rivalry matchup with Ohio State (10-0, 6-0) at home. Wins against those two teams would give the team a 9-3 record and perhaps put the Wolverines in a respectable Bowl game.
97.1 The Ticket’s Mike Valenti believes that even with three straight victories to end the season, the team’s shortcomings this year can’t be excused.
“When Brady hoke came to this program he preached Big Ten titles,” Valenti said on his radio program Friday. “If that’s what you preach, anything short is a failure. They shouldn’t write it off as a success.”
Would a 9-3 record with a Bowl win over a good team be considered a successful season for Michigan? Or is anything short of a Big Ten title a failure for Brady Hoke’s Wolverines?
