Three Obstacles for Jim Harbaugh to Overcome at Michigan in 2015

Jim Harbaugh’s return to Michigan is a huge boost to a program that has struggled to be nationally relevant in recent years. The Wolverines recorded three seasons of double-digit victories from 2002-06 but have only one year of 10 or more wins since 2007.

Football nerds unite.

Now, we get the best of both in a bowl game.

Cook is the home run threat who turned the momentum in two of the toughest tests for FSU this season. He was the official MVP of the ACC championship game and an unofficial MVP of October and November for Florida State.

 

When Florida State meets Oregon in the Rose Bowl, the most Oregon-like player in the game won’t play for the Ducks.
