Michigan is currently the No. 4 team in the AP Top 25 Poll. Although that has no bearing whatsoever on the eventual College Football Playoff rankings, notable ESPN writer Heather Dinich thinks No. 4 is far too high for the Wolverines. 

Michigan is struggling with the Terrapins of Maryland at the half this Saturday afternoon. The Wolverines lead 17-14 through two quarters of play. 

Dinich thinks Michigan has shown nothing to deserve its No. 4 ranking, at least up to this point in the 2022 season. 

"Nothing about the Michigan game is surprising me. They haven't done anything yet to earn the No. 4 ranking. I still think they'll win this game, but it's only going to get more difficult," said Dinich.

She makes a valid argument, but who else should be the No. 4 team in the nation? Clemson hasn't looked impressive. Even Ohio State and Alabama have shown struggles this year. 

It's worth noting this is a conference opponent as well and the game's not over. For all we know Michigan will win this game by three scores.
