Sorry for the link to FP. I saw this article on FP by Tim Sullivan and this quote jumped at me
Even if Michigan's 2016 class isn't able to realistically finish No. 1 overall (and every national champion since 2003 has had at least one No. 1 class or multiple No. 2 overall classes), the fun seems to be just beginning for head coach Jim Harbaugh in Ann Arbor
Is this really true? I do not remember AUB finishing #1 or #2 before winning the national championship.
