Don’t fret, though, Michigan fans. There’s one college football analyst who thinks quite highly of your 2014 team. Unfortunately, that expert is the incredibly biased Desmond Howard of ESPN’s “College GameDay” program.

Howard, of course, played for Michigan, winning the Heisman in 1991. Perhaps his alma mater has him on the payroll or something, because ranking the Wolverines No. 6 in the country is more than fan-boyish optimism. It’s ridiculous.
Michigan opens the season Aug. 30 against Appalachian State.
