These had been no doubt lofty targets nonetheless then again gorgeous ones, when livid by the wisely-known work Harbaugh had done at his two most outdated stops of San Francisco and Stanford.

It’s no surprise Ohio Converse has posted a higher total fable than U-M over the final six seasons, with nobody having seen a six-year trip of 68-8 coming directly after a nationwide championship for this technique in 2014.

On the total, it be no longer acceptable from anyone in the Michigan program to get posted a fable vastly worse than OSU’s over a six-year span, nonetheless again, 68-8 is rather tough to high or to even match.



What’s extra hectic, nonetheless, is the real fact three diversified Huge Ten features commence air of Ohio Converse now possess a higher fable than Michigan over the final six years — Wisconsin, Iowa and Penn Converse.

The Badgers’ 56-19 sign since 2015 has been the single of the aforementioned trio, although Iowa’s 53-21 fable (71.6) and Penn Converse’s 53-22 sign (70.6) are shut in the inspire of. A quantity of followers oftentimes show veil the real fact that Wisconsin and Iowa play in the Huge Ten West division and face a vastly less complicated agenda than East squads, which is upright.

That identical myth can’t be outmoded for Penn Converse although, whose 53-22 fable since 2015 is somewhat better than U-M’s 49-22. Every the Nittany Lions and Wolverines get recruited at a identical level over the final six years, nonetheless the Badgers and Hawkeyes, on the diversified hand, get no longer been on these two‘s recruiting level.

Wisconsin and Iowa persistently cease in the 20s and 30s (or even lower) in the nationwide recruiting rankings, nonetheless get outmoded wisely-known player construction to salvage consistent winners.

Consistency is the secret for the Badgers and Hawkeyes, who get each and each concluded with a hit recordsdata each and each season since 2015. Michigan became in a spot to enlighten the identical part up unless final year when it carried out two video games under .500 at 2-4.
