We have three teams left in the B1G to vote on, Michigan, Minnesota and IU. We will start with Michigan. Michigan has the most wins and the best win percentage all time in college football. They have the famous winged helmets and are the home of the Fab Five (and baggy shorts, and taking money from boosters...). They have had a drought recently in basketball and football (thanks RichRod!). Would the rest of the B1G dislike Michigan more if they were back to the football powerhouse that we are used to?
Note: I just checked on the Rivals page for football recruiting, and Michigan is 3rd in the rankings overall with 11 4-star recruits. I have a feeling they are moving back to what we expect from the football powerhouse.
Here is the poll. How much do we like/dislike Michigan as a fanbase?
