Sports Illustrated has released its preseason top 25 rankings and the Michigan Wolverines check in at #13.
Teams that Michigan will play this year in the top 25 are Alabama #1, Wisconsin #6 (Michigan’s opponent in the B1G title game, hopefully), Michigan State #8, Nebraska #19 and ohio state #22.
Definitely a brutal schedule for the Wolverines with only one of those games being at home, MSU on Oct. 20. If the Wolverines can get through this schedule and make it to the B1G title game, the future is definitely burning bright in A2!
Sports Illustrated also revealed the cover of their college football preview magazine scheduled to hit news stands Thursday, August 16th and it’s regional cover will be featuring Michigan’s own Shoelace, Denard Robinson.
Denard will be only the 10th Michigan football player to have graced the cover of SI. Can you guess the others?
This is great publicity for the program that is in just the second year of a rebuilding project. If things go this year like they did in 2011 then stay tuned for more SI covers in the near future.
