Higdon’s first question asked to him will obviously be about his recent comments about “anything but a National Title will be a disappointment “

Imo anything less than making the playoffs is a disappointment. This returning team is just too good. The players know this too. And Harbaugh hates losing more than anyone ... magnify the frustrations we felt last year by 10 for him. Pressure is on him especially because next year will be a rebuilding year after sending 9 guys to the league.

If we truly desire to be in the elite discussion ,  then we shouldn’t ever have to use the word “rebuilding” going forward .   OSU and Alabama ,  and you can basically start to include Clemson as of recent , in the discussion where it doesn’t matter how much they lose ,  they still are in the title hunt the next season

You don't get there overnight but UM is getting close.

If you figure 8-5 last year could have been a 10 win season w either a full-season from a QB or a full season of decent Oline play then maybe UM is just a couple of steps away from being able to reload. Recruiting has to be consistent but that will come when UM wins big this year and sends half the team to the league for the second time in 3 years.

Any early predictions on team captains?

I'm assuming 1 on offense, 1 on defense still? I'll go with Higdon and Winovich since they are both in their last season. Although I bet Rashan is the most vocal person in the locker room still.

Need to reverse this trend. Saw this tweet by a guy who covers Vegas sports gambling. 

Michigan is 0-16 SU/4-12 ATS on the road vs ranked teams since early 2006. This year the Wolverines will most likely face three ranked teams on the road: Notre Dame, Michigan State and Ohio State.
