After three painful losses culminating in Saturday's dreadful performance against Kansas State in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, recounting the Michigan Wolverines' top moments from 2013 seems untimely. It was a tough year marked by poor line play and the inability to consistently run the football, both characteristics that Michigan fans are hardly accustomed to seeing.
But if you're able to peel back the sting of another disappointing season, there are plenty of positive moments to reminisce about. How about the monster year that Jeremy Gallon had? What about the dramatic home victory over Notre Dame that catapulted the Wolverines to 11th in the country?
In the spirit of the New Year, which brings fresh optimism and renewed hope, let's relive some of the best moments of Michigan's 2013 season.
