With Michigan football fall camp starting this week, the program has made headlines for all the wrong reasons recently.
Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh has an ongoing NCAA investigation that could lead to a four-game suspension this season. He is in discussions about a possible negotiated four-game suspension from the NCAA for not cooperating with enforcement staff. He faces a Level I violation, the most significant under NCAA policy, and could miss the Wolverines’ first four games — home contests against East Carolina, UNLV, Bowling Green, and Rutgers.
Aside from that, the program is being laughed at because of food being served at Michigan Stadium’s barbecue for recruits.
The food being served included a plain hotdog in a bun with a single chocolate chip cookie. The plate also had macaroni and cheese and chicken tenders.
Michigan has plenty of hype entering the 2023 college football season. After going 13-1 in 2022 with a win against Ohio State in Columbus, winning the Big Ten, and making a trip to the College Football Playoff for the second year in a row — the hype has every reason to be there that the program is ready to make that leap and win a National championship.
The Wolverines claim 11 national championships, but haven’t won the entire thing since 1997 by former head coach Lloyd Carr. The Wolverines would finish the season with a 12-0 record, culminating in a Rose Bowl victory over Washington by a score of 21-16.
A suspension of Harbaugh could throw a monkey wrench in those plans for the 2023 season, but that potential four-game ban is against teams that they should defeat easily.
However, as we have seen in the past, anything can happen on the field of play.
