The 2016 college football season for the Michigan Wolverines was moving along quite smoothly until one raucous weekend in Iowa City where a last-second field goal sent the season in a downward spiral. The Wolverines wound up losing three out of their last four games including a nail-biter at Ohio State and the Orange Bowl to Florida State after starting the year 9-0.
Heading into 2017, as many as 17 starters have moved on, in addition to a number of key contributors sprinkled all over the depth chart, leading some to think this will be a rebuilding season in Ann Arbor. That said, Jim Harbaugh has now brought in consecutive top-10 recruiting classes to replenish the depth and prevent Michigan from taking too much of a dip in the Big Ten standings.
