2019 University of Michigan Football Season Predictions

2019 University of Michigan Football Season Predictions
Drew Montag
20 August 2019

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 (2018)

My Prediction: 8-4 (6-3 in Big Ten)
Actual Results: 10-2 (8-1)
Comments: After doing a terrible job predicting the 2017 season, I was a little better last season. I was a little pessimistic, and I thought we’d lose to Notre Dame (correct), Wisconsin (wrong), Penn State (wrong), and Ohio State (correct).

This Season (2019)

My Prediction: 9-3 (6-3 in Big Ten)
Comments: This season is a really tough one to predict. Michigan could finish anywhere from 12-0 to 5-7. The new offense (and offensive coordinator) and reloaded defense are both big question marks. The national “experts” are predicting good things for Michigan, and it’s tempting to join them, but the bitter taste from the beatdown in Columbus last season makes me hesitate. Michigan has a very tough schedule this season, and while many of the toughest games are in Ann Arbor, Michigan still has to prove they can win the big games. I’m still feeling pessimistic and predicting losses to Wisconsin, Penn State, and Ohio State.

Go Blue!
