College Football Rankings 2011: Is No. 11 Michigan Bound for a BCS Bowl Game?
One of the most surprising teams of the first half of the 2011 college football season has been the Michigan Wolverines, who have now moved all the way up to No. 10 in the Coaches’ Poll and No. 11 in the AP Poll after starting off the season unranked and off the radar.
Michigan has relied on the tremendous playmaking ability of star quarterback Denard Robinson and the steady improvement of a defense that was highly criticized a year ago to roll out to a 6-0 record.
Sure, considering the Wolverines have yet to beat a ranked opponent, you can make the argument that maybe, just maybe, we’re getting a little too overzealous about this team, especially with the memory of their second-half collapse in 2010 still fresh in our minds.
There are certainly reasons to get excited about this team, however.
No matter what Michigan fans think about former coach Rich Rodriguez, they have to give him credit for bringing a lot of talent to Ann Arbor (I can guarantee you his successor Brady Hoke is surely grateful).
It’s too early to start thinking about a BCS bowl game for this team, but if the Wolverines can go to No. 23 Michigan State this weekend and make a statement against the Spartans, it will set them up to be in great shape to make a run to the Big Ten championship game.
