2023 University of Michigan Football Season Predictions

Yeah, it’s me, the “basketball guy”, back for more.  It’s time for my annual attempt to predict how the University of Michigan’s football season is going to go.

Last Season (2022)

My Prediction: 10-2 (7-2 in Big Ten)

Actual Results: 13-1 (9-0 in Big Ten)

Comments:  After being way off for a couple seasons in a row, I was pretty close last season. I predicted that we’d lose at Iowa and Ohio State, and I was glad to be wrong.

This Season (2023)

My Prediction: 11-1 (8-1 in Big Ten)

Comments: After a very good 2021 season (12-2) and an even better 2022 season (13-1), many experts are picking UM to run the table and win a National Championship.  I’m not quite that optimistic, although I certainly hope they’re right.  I think UM has the talent and attitude to win their first 11 games, but I’m afraid that our magic vs. Ohio State has run out.  However, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Michigan get selected for the College Football Playoffs again, even with a loss to OSU.  If they get in the CFP, they are due to win at least one game, and perhaps two.

Go Blue!
