PS - michagan ALSO played - and beat - perdue and indiana. Your point? They also played east carolina (they have a team?) and UNLV. (and maryland AND Rutgers.) So Michigan is better? ok, duh.
There is no more overrated coach in college football than James Franklin. Nobody has won less with more than him. Think about it, he brings in highly ranked recruiting classes every year, has one of the biggest alumni bases in the entire country, one of the largest stadiums for fans to pack on game day, and one of the biggest budgets and resource allocations in the entire country... and he can't even make the College Football Playoff!

Not to mention, he is 3-7 against Michigan and 1-9 against Ohio State, the two BEST teams in the Big Ten.

Overall, he is 9-24 against ranked opponents and 3-16 against the Top 10.

How can you possibly defend that and say "the coaching staff is actually pretty good"? Are you satisfied with mediocrity? Because that is what James Franklin has given you!
