Jim Harbaugh’s bold claim about 2023 Michigan football team sends expectations sky high

The Michigan Wolverines have had an eventful past two seasons, clinching spots in the College Football Playoff and being eliminated in the first round by the Georgia Bulldogs and TCU Horned Frogs.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh has high expectations for his team heading into the upcoming season, saying this is the best version of football he has seen since he has been at Michigan.  

Bo Schembechler said that every team on the schedule would differ from last year and that now is the time to attack.

This team is the best version of themselves, and the phrase "strike while the iron is hot" is at the forefront of their minds.

Michigan showed promise this past season but fell to TCU in the Fiesta Bowl 51-45.
