"In the words of Harbaugh, Michigan was ascending.

And then, just like that, it wasn’t. In retrospect, the close loss to Ohio State on Nov. 26, 2016 — remembered for a controversial spot of the football — was a turning point. The Wolverines never have been as close to realizing their dreams since that day, retreating from a position of strength to one that is slightly weaker and less impressive. In the last three seasons, Michigan hasn’t placed higher than 14 in the final rankings while stumbling repeatedly in consequential games that have taken the Wolverines out of the running for anything meaningful.

As time has passed, the missed opportunity in Columbus four years ago looms larger. It all but stanched the momentum Harbaugh had accrued until that point and may have impeded his efforts to turn Michigan into a perennial power again."

If thats truly the case then they need a new coach. They've had plenty of talent.
