Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines had, arguably, the most-disappointing finish to the 2018 college football season.

The Wolverines ended the regular season with a blowout loss at Ohio State, dropping out of the College Football Playoff race and missing out on a trip to the Big Ten Championship Game.

Michigan went on to play in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, where it got blown out by Florida.

The Wolverines have finished the year with back-to-back blowout losses, ending the season at 10-3.

What has to happen at Michigan moving forward?

Harbaugh had a simple answer following his team's blowout loss.

"I think we're going to take what we have and reload a new season and tighten up and keep working to put it over the top," he told reporters.

Harbaugh said that the 2018 season was a good one for Michigan, but the Wolverines need to get to a point where they're having great seasons.

"It was a very good season. It would have been a great season if we'd won this game, but we couldn't get it done. My feeling about the team is we're right there at the top. But we have to put it over the top, especially in the big games at the end of the year."

The 2019 season will be a massive one for Michigan. The Wolverines will get to play an Urban Meyer-less Ohio State team with several other Big Ten teams going through major changes. Harbaugh has to deliver on the biggest of stages.
