It hasn't been the 2020 campaign that Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines have envisioned. In fact, aside from a season-opening win, it's been an absolute nightmare.
Three consecutive losses with the latest being an embarrassing home setback to Wisconsin have Harbaugh in the crosshairs of both fans and media, as the calls grow louder for major improvements to be made in a hurry.
The latest comes from ESPN analyst David Pollack, who is concerned with the state of affairs in Ann Arbor.
“I think when you look at this situation with Harbaugh, the recruiting classes have been solid,” Pollack said on Get Up. “We were asking before the season if he can beat Ohio State — that is what he has to do, he has to beat Ohio State to get over the hump — but now we're saying ‘Can Michigan beat Indiana?' A lot has changed and you can put the blame wherever you want, but something isn't right. Offensively, they don't look good. Defensively, they look a mess by the way. They want to continue to be stubborn and play more man defensive than about anybody in the country, and they continue to get abused for it.
“Listen, it's not going well. Something at this point has to change. I don't know if it's a disconnect with Jim Harbaugh, because he is a bit quirky, different and a lot more old school. I'm not sure if he can't relate to the kids (as well), but something is going wrong in Ann Arbor and something needs to change.”
With a 1-3 record, Michigan is off to their worst start since 1967. Will they be able to turn it around?
