Michigan's talented running back, Blake Corum, delivered a resolute message to both his fellow teammates and the entire Big Ten conference, proclaiming, "Those who stay at Michigan will be champions." Corum's inspiring words shed light on the Wolverines' ambitious objective of defending their conference title and clinching a national championship in the coming season.

During the recent offseason, Coach Jim Harbaugh expressed his conviction that the state of Michigan football is currently at its pinnacle, noting that Michigan football is at its "best place we’ve been in so far." As the back-to-back Big Ten champions, the team has continued to fortify its strengths through an eventful offseason. Notably, a number of potential instant impact transfers, such as Ernest Hausmann, a highly acclaimed former linebacker from Nebraska, have chosen to join the ranks in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Hausmann, standing as the highest-rated player among the incoming transfers, adds to the team's already dominant roster, further enhancing their prospects for success.

With the acquisition of seven transfers, including four individuals who have earned impressive four-star transfer ratings, the Wolverines have significantly strengthened their roster. As the upcoming season draws nearer, Michigan emerges as the frontrunner and favored team to clinch the Big Ten title.

Corum stands out as one of the top contenders for the prestigious Doak Walker Award, a recognition that comes as no surprise. His exceptional performance on the field throughout the 2022 season solidifies his status as a remarkable running back. Corum's first three games in the 2022 season with Michigan resulted in convincing victories, underlining his impact as an integral part of the team's success.

Following that period, Corum displayed impressive consistency by rushing for over 100 yards in each subsequent game up until the Ohio State matchup, where an injury slowed him down. Nevertheless, he concluded the 2022 season with exceptional statistics, accumulating a total of 1,463 yards and 18 touchdowns on 247 carries.
