Latest Coaches Poll Top 25: Ohio And Alabama Behind Michigan In Preseason College Football Rankings

College football 2023 season is about to start, and fans can’t wait to return to Michigan Stadium, as always. The Coaches Poll in preseason ranking is also out. And this time, the poll comes with some surprises. 

We have new teams at the top of the poll for the first time in a long time. The Georgian Bulldogs climbed to the top of the poll, something they haven’t done since 2008. 

The 2023 college football season is about to begin, and with it comes the usual preseason rankings organized annually. 

The Coaches Poll was released recently, with Georgia Bulldogs, a two-time reigning national champion, leading. The Georgia Bulldogs ranked No. 1 but are not the only surprises. 

The Michigan Wolverines Football team, a two-time Big Ten reigning champion, took the No. 2 spot.   

Sitting in the third and fourth spots are Alabama and Ohio State, Michigan Wolverines’ fierce rivals. The Wolverines earned 1510 points in the preseason ranking, placing them 21 points ahead of third place Alabama and 25 points ahead of fourth place Ohio State. 

Michigan Wolverines second place ranking shows how much the team has improved. Unfortunately, the team failed to earn a first-place vote from the panel comprising coaches. 

For Alabama and Ohio, the story was different and mood-lifting. Alabama clinched four first-place votes, Wolverines had none, while Ohio State clinched one from the coaches that formed the panel.

LSU occupied the fifth position on the poll ranking, edging sixth-place USC. Pennsylvania State took No. 7, while Florida State and Clemson finished No. 8 and 9, respectively. 

Tennessee finished at No. 10, making it one of the teams to clinch the top 10 spots on the Coaches Polls. Finalist TCU occupied the 16th position after recording heavy losses to its NFL contributors.

Pac-12 champions, Utah, occupied No. 14 on the list. Utah has been a team to watch for many years. They clinched four division champions, all in the Pac-12 Conference’s South division. Utah knocked USC off the play-off,  

Tulane ranks at No. 23. However, the interesting thing is that Tulane is the only Group of Five team that made the list and started the year at No. 23. 

Sixty-six coaches voted in the polls. Check out the Coaches’ Polls results for preseason. See the ranking of each team and those that got first-place votes from the coaches.

The season is yet to start, so it will be too early to start speculating. In no time, we shall see the teams that will stand out as the season progresses.

How Prepared Are The Michigan Wolverines Football Team For The 2023 Season?  

New photos and videos of the Wolverines fall camp keeps flooding the internet lately. The photos and videos were directly from the team’s training camp. 

If the Wolverines fans were losing hope in the team, the photos and videos emerging from the team’s fall camp should provide a massive boost. 

The media content shows the team training. However, what caught the eyes of fans, critics, and the college football community is the Wolverines’ latest recruit, Myles Hinton. 

The 2023 season will be Hinton’s first year playing for the Michigan Wolverines, and the offensive tackle looks to be in solid form. He is looking well-motivated and ready to hit the ground running. 

Hinton’s teammates continue to speak highly of him. The latest to talk about the offensive tackle’s potential and the massive boost to the team is Briaden McGregor, a defensive end for the Michigan Wolverines. 

McGregor faces Hinton in practice, so he’s one of the right persons to speak about Myles Hinton’s huge potential. According to McGregor, “Hinton is huge and plays hard.”

Another player McGregor spoke highly about is LaDarius Henderson. He spoke highly of LaDarius (called LD by the Wolverines players) and how valuable he’ll be to the team. According to McGregor, LaDarius boasts great hands and feet. On top of that, he’s massively aggressive. 

Myles Hinton’s details are clearly spelled out on the Michigan Wolverines Football team’s official website. On the website, it states that Hinton weighs 340+ pounds and he’s 6-foot-6. 

Jim Harbaugh’s Suspension: What Is Happening?   

The 2023 offseason is yet to begin but has already been riddled with non-football-related news for the Maize and Blue. 

What happened?     

Over the summer, the NCAA’s massive push to suspend Jim Harbaugh, the Michigan Wolverines Football coach, was intense. The plan was to suspend Harbaugh for at least four games over an issue known as “Burgergate.” 

Just recently, Yahoo Sports reported that sources believe Jim Harbaugh is now free, though for the meantime. The NCAA has backed off and may likely not pursue the issue anytime soon.

So, Jim Harbaugh will be the one to coach the Michigan Wolverines Football team. Now the big question is, is Harbaugh a free man for the rest of his coaching career? Will the NCAA punish him in the future? 

The NCAA is likely only letting Harbaugh go for the 2023 season. He could face punishment in the 2024 season. 

Harbaugh’s case has purportedly taken a twist. Now, the case is centered on level 2 violations rather than the suspension-caliber level 1 punishment.
