Michigan is poised to dominate the college football scene in 2023. In fact, the Wolverines are not just expected to be good, they are projected to be elite. With the fourth-best odds to win the College Football Playoff National Championship, according to BetMGM, Michigan is ready to make a statement.

Confidence is radiating from the Wolverines' camp in Ann Arbor. Senior running back Blake Corum recently shared on the Bussin' With The Boys podcast that the team's camaraderie and offseason work have propelled them to a whole new level. Corum exclaimed, "Confidence is through the roof! We've been working tirelessly, and heading into camp tomorrow, it's going to be an absolute frenzy."

This level of excitement and anticipation is unprecedented for the Wolverines. Under the leadership of Jim Harbaugh, Michigan has not experienced this level of hype before. The preseason AP Top 25 Poll reflects this, ranking the Wolverines as the second-best team in the nation. This is Michigan's highest preseason ranking since 1991, with only defending national champions Georgia ranked above them.

However, the Wolverines have one hurdle to overcome to solidify their status as a college football powerhouse. Kirby Smart's Georgia Bulldogs have achieved what Harbaugh's team has not yet accomplished – winning in the College Football Playoff. In the 2022 CFP Semifinal at the Orange Bowl, Michigan suffered a defeat against the Bulldogs, with a final score of 34-11. Similarly, in the previous season's CFP Semifinal at the Fiesta Bowl, the Wolverines fell short against TCU, losing 51-45.

As the 2023 season approaches, all eyes are on the Wolverines. Will they be able to transform their immense potential into championship glory? Only time will tell. But one thing is for certain, with the talent, determination, and the explosive abilities of players like Blake Corum, the Michigan Wolverines are ready to leave a lasting mark on the college football landscape.
