2021 Michigan Football game-by-game predictions

Guest Predictor: William Drysdale (3rd Grade)

The 2021 College Football season is upon us and this coming Saturday, the unranked Michigan Wolverines will look to bounce back from a disappointing 2020 campaign when they take the field against Western Michigan.

Rather than doing my own game-by-game predictions this season, I figured it would be fun to hand the reins over to my son William, who may be the biggest Wolverines fan that I know.

As you can see below, William believes Michigan will come out of the gates quickly by winning all four of their games in September by a combined score of 183-36 before dropping their first game in October at Wisconsin.

When it comes to the Wolverines’ biggest rivals, William has them disposing of Michigan State rather easily but getting stomped in the Big House by Ohio State.

Nation, how do you think Michigan will fare in 2021? Will they bounce back or will Jim Harbaugh’s seat get even hotter?


One Comment

  1. Jim Harbaugh has been a massive disappointment and there is little or no reason to have any expectations for this season. New coaches on the staff is arguably a reason for hope but I don’t think it will lift the program from its mediocre place at the bottom of the pile this season. They’ll win 8 games (Indiana or Maryland will pick them off).

    The season will end with OSU embarrassing the program in the Big House.


    I don’t know what happened to Harbaugh. His coaching at Stanford was innovative and he took the Niners to a Super Bowl.
    He arrived in Ann Arbor and has yet to develop a QB capable of running the offense at a high level.

    Michigan recruits well, but the Harbaugh staff (so far) has not developed the talented recruits they land. Also, the coaching staff (in years past) has sucked at self-scouting.

    I’ll watch every play but I have forgotten how fun it was to anticipate a season with hopes of a Big Ten Title. For over 20 years anticipation has been replaced with a cynical … dread.

    Go Blue.
