MWiatrak2077 4 My beloved (kinda) Wolverines, they faced off against the tragically terrible Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors in an expected blowout. The spread at gametime was -51.5, the highest in Michigan football history. Despite missing the spread by a mere TD margin (-46), the Wolverines had an extremely potent first half. They outgained the Warriors 410-32, (most yardage collected in a half under Harbaugh since 2016), were up 42-0, and held the Warriors to just two first-downs. Most importantly, 5* QB J.J. McCarthy looked extremely poised, collected, & impressive, even against an opponent such as Hawai'i. J.J. finished the game at the half, with a statline of 3 TDs, 0 INTs, 11/12 passing (one drop), 19.1 Y/A. As a Michigan fan, I haven't been this impressed in nearly a decade. Unfortunately, the second half proved to be a serious battle, as Michigan's deep reserves came out, and several tryouts got their opportunities. (Likely) former QB1, Cade McNamara, had the same struggles he suffered against Colorado State, - inaccurate, nervous in the pocket, and couldn't throw past 6 yards. On a drive in which the entire starting offensive line came out just to help him, he severely underthrew a pass, and got picked off. Cade finished the game with a statline of 0 TDs, 1 INT, 4/6, 4.3 Y/A. Jim Harbaugh has already stated that J.J. will be the starting QB going forward. This doesn't mean we don't appreciate what he has done for the program, slaying OSU and winning the Big Ten, however, it's clear he's become a #2. If he leaves the program, wherever he goes, we will always support him no matter what. As for the rest of the game, Michigan won 56-10 in a fairly uneventful second half which saw Hawai'i win the third quarter 3-0. To end the game, Michigan stopped a fourth down conversion in their own redzone to ice it. While fairly uneventful and expected, Michigan avoided any serious upset alerts, and looked like an NFL team against High-Schoolers in the first half. Hawai'i impressed deeply with their poise and pride in the second half, which leaves hopes of a rebuilt program under their former star QB, now Head Coach, Timmy Chang. Michigan has dominated their last two opponents, has gone on a 14-2 streak since the start of 2021, and has mostly solved their QB situation, however, I do not feel comfortable ranking them ahead of Alabama, or anyone, until their schedule improves and Big Ten play opens up.

nw____ 4 We may not really know anything about this team for a few months, but who are you gonna put in front of them until then if they continue winning in such dominant fashion? To their credit, they haven't played down to their competition to this point.

Our-Gardian-Angel 4 Hawai'i is going to be in for a brutal year, so it's hard to take too much from this game, but J.J. McCarthy as clear starter under center is a good development for the Wolverines. (Week 2: Michigan 56, Hawai'i 10; Record: 2-0)

ikindalikelemons 9 Michigan is probably a top-5 team. They've beaten Colorado State, who just lost to MTSU, and Hawai'i, who got boatraced by Vandy, at home. You'll forgive me if I don't give them a ton of credit yet. I'm sure I will after a B1G game or two. They come in at the top of this 9-14 group because they haven't yet played with their food.

Dawg-Bite 3 Looked like a top tier team but still hasn’t played a decent opponent yet to warrant a move to #2. Only reason they’re above Bama is because Texas shoulda won
Dontworryaboutit1 3 feels weird putting michigan at #3, but they got the spot until someone else proves they deserve it
