Could this year's Michigan team take down the teams from the Fab Five era?

The Michigan Wolverines raced out to the best start in school history earlier this season and have amassed a 21-4 record thus far, which led some of the Maize and Blue faithful to ask, could this team hang with the Fab Five?

The current Michigan team has yet to compete in the NCAA tournament, but the Wolverines are national title contenders nonetheless and could bring home the championship Chris Webber and Co. never did.

Not only did the Fab Five make back-to-back national championship game appearances in 1992 and 1993, the class of 1991 sparked a cultural movement and brought a significant amount of attention toward the issue of whether or not college athletes should be paid.

This slideshow will not assess that impact on the game, but it is going to break down how the Fab Five's frontcourt, backcourt, bench and head coach stack up against this year's Michigan team.

None of the performances beyond the 1992-93 season by the five legendary Wolverines will be considered since the group was no longer whole after Webber declared for the 1993 NBA draft.
