ESPN’s Paul Finebaum Raises Doubts About Michigan’s Authenticity

Michigan extended their unbeaten streak to 11-0 after securing a victory against Maryland at College Park over the weekend.

As the No. 2 ranked team in the nation, the Wolverines are gearing up for a formidable challenge in their upcoming match against Ohio State, a fellow undefeated team. This clash is widely recognized as one of the most significant rivalries in college football.

During a recent appearance on McElroy and Cubelic In The Morning, ESPN’s Paul Finebaum expressed skepticism about Michigan, labeling them as potential fool’s gold. However, he acknowledged that they have a golden opportunity to prove him wrong in the showdown against the Buckeyes.

“I’m tempted to say Michigan,” Finebaum commented. “Maybe we’ve seen Michigan without Jim Harbaugh. And perhaps – I say perhaps – without the advantage of knowing what the other school’s plays are. I know that’s a common response.”

He concluded by emphasizing that the truth of Michigan’s standing will unfold on the field in Ann Arbor on Saturday. It’s noteworthy that Harbaugh will be absent from coaching duties, serving the final game of his three-game suspension imposed by the Big Ten due to the sign-stealing scandal.
