The talking point surrounding current Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh isn’t whether he’ll return to the NFL. It’s which team he’ll coach for.

We’re two years removed from Harbaugh interviewing with the Minnesota Vikings and Denver Broncos. He also said that would be the last time he chases an NFL job. Harbaugh hired well-known NFL agent Don Yee. Michigan could win the National Championship tonight. The Wolverines could also be facing sanctions for being involved in a cheating scandal.

Tonight’s game between the Wolverines and Washington Huskies has all the makings of an instant classic. Michigan has controlled every game they’ve played in. They’re the type of team comfortable running the ball on early downs and winning on third.

The Wolverines live by “four yards and a cloud of dust,” where Michael Penix and the Huskies want to throw the ball all over the place. The clash in styles on both sides of the ball will make this a fun matchup.
