Coach Harbaugh Names Shae Patterson Starter
Many sports channels have been after Jim Harbaugh for whatever reason in bringing up the fact that his Quarterbacks have not lived up to the "Big Blue" standard and that Harbaugh was not an outstanding QB coach. Given that Coach Harbaugh was one of the QB's who helped set the standard for what it takes to be an elite Michigan QB, I believe he has found the right guy to help him prove the naysayers wrong in Heisman Trophy Watch List student-athlete Shea Patterson. Patterson has been dubbed a man that can " do it all" for the Wolverines this season and will have one of the best defenses in the country to back the Michigan offense up. With revenge on the minds of the Michigan Wolverines for the embarrassing blowout loss they suffered in 2014 and Notre Dame dubbing this contest "Absolute War," we are in for a treat on NBC at 5:30 PM on Saturday, September 1st. To learn more about Coach Harbaugh, check out the College Football Today Nebraska preview, where we defend Coach Harbaugh against "The Land of 10".
Michigan Defense Arguably The Best In Nation
The Fighting Irish faithful have dubbed the game with the Wolverines "Absolute War" and are embracing the challenge according to multiple sources. The Irish seem very laid back in recent practices and Coach Brian Kelly is eager to see what the Notre Dame Fighting Irish are made of in 2018. That being said, he is going up against a defense that only allowed 18 points a game last year and ranked as one of the nation's top defenses in every statistical category. Khaleke Hudson will replace Jabrill Peppers, who was one of the best players in all of college football last season, and can provide a fierce pass rush to opposing offenses. With the Michigan offense struggling last year due to a QB carousel and young receiving core, the Wolverines were able to win games by creating turnovers, along with many 3 and outs. With the spike to the Michigan offense with having a Heisman Trophy contender at the helm in Shea Patterson, we could be talking Michigan Football's first ever BCS playoffs appearance. If anyone deserves to get his team to the mountaintop of College Football, it is Coach Jim Harbaugh and a QB who was once dubbed "Manziel 2.0" by the world of college football after his freshmen season at Ole Miss.
Michigan will face off against the Fighting Irish first and if they can get the revenge they seek, they will get the next three games at home, including starting out Big Ten competition against the Huskers of Lincoln, Nebraska. After traveling to a very good Northwestern team in which they should beat, they will face off against Maryland for homecoming in Ann Arbor. In my opinion, the next three games against Wisconsin, Michigan State and Penn State will dictate whether the Michigan Wolverines will get a BCS playoffs bid and get a shot at the coveted NCAA FBS National Championship. They will than face-off against a dangerous Rutgers football team in New Jersey and than have the Hoosiers in Ann Arbor on Nov 17th. Depending on what happens with the Ohio State head coaches and Urban Meyer, the game against Ohio State at the Horseshoe will be a game a major significance and one that will also dictate Shea Patterson's stake for the Heisman Trophy award!
