Despite losing a plethora of talent to the NFL, the 2019 Michigan Wolverines have been getting some major love across the nation.
According to most oddsmakers, the Wolverines are currently favored in each and every game on their schedule, though that could change.
One former Wolverine who certainly believes in his alma mater is Heisman Trophy winner, Charles Woodson.
Woodson, who was in Ann Arbor to promote his new wine called “Intercept,” made a BOLD prediction for Michigan.
From The Detroit News:
“Undefeated, college playoff, we win the championship,” said Woodson, who has not been to a practice this camp. “That’s my prediction, so don’t try to alter that. It’s not going to change. Now, if you ask me how I feel about the team and what I expect, I’m excited about having offensive coordinator Josh Gattis that comes in with an up-tempo offense, spreading guys out, getting your playmakers into space, allowing those guys to get the ball and just go and do what they’re going to do. The offense fits Shea Patterson, fits his abilities, especially to get out of the pocket, running those RPOs, those things should work well with his skill set, so I’m excited about that.
“I’m excited to see who’s going to step up on the defensive side of the ball. I think if you watch Devin Bush playing his (NFL) preseason, you know what a big-time talent we’re going to miss in the middle of that defense this coming season. You’re gonna have to have guys that step up, kinda fill his role as a leader. A guy like Rashan Gary on the defensive line, those guys, they’re gonna be missed. But the challenge is for the next guy. Who comes up and makes the plays? I’m excited to see how it plays out.”
Do you agree with Woodson?
