Michigan fans should be optimistic about 2018

 

 

Open letter to Michigan fans

Michigan fans: We have come to a turning point in the way we look at our teams. Michigan football didn’t give us much excitement in 2017. They started going downhill at the most inopportune time, and many fans even started to question Jim Harbaugh’s coaching ability.

That’s when us as fans have to step back and realize what the future holds for this team. Jim Harbaugh has proven to be an excellent coach everywhere he’s gone. Ask Andrew Luck and Colin Kaepernick. So yes, Harbaugh knows how to develop a Quarterback.

As for this off-season, he added a couple new faces to his coaching staff that should help ease the tension on the sideline and ease the minds of worried Michigan fans.

Not to mention new transfer QB Shea Patterson, who will most likely be the Day 1 starter, is an absolute beast.

Also, most of the 2017 team is coming back. DE Chase Winovich announced he will stay 1 more year, which is huge for a Defensive Line that is losing Maurice Hurst Jr.

 

 

Linebacker Mike McCray is also gone but Devin Bush should be one of the top linebackers in the conference next season. The linebacker position group will be just fine.  On top of that, WR Tarik Black is back and healthy on offense, and he’ll be lining up on the other side of Donovan Peoples-Jones, a freshman standout.

That’s not all either. Over on the basketball side of things, Coach Beilein has his priorities straight and is continuing to build a strong program. Michigan basketball will always be fun to watch as long as Beilein is at the helm.

John Beilein has the 9th best recruiting class in the country coming in next season, according to 247Sports. In that class PG David DeJulius, and SG/SF Ignas Brazadekis will look to make immediate impacts next season. Ignas was just upgraded to a 5- star recruit as well according to Rivals.

 

 

PF Brandon Johns will also provide Michigan the depth that they have lacked in recent years at the 4 spot.

Freshmen Jordan Poole and Isaiah Livers are looking outstanding too and they both will be back next season. As for the state of both programs, all I can say is, the only way is up.

Be optimistic in 2018. Good things are coming. Go Blue.
