USA Today released its preseason top 25 coaches' poll, and Michigan cracked the list at No. 24.
Georgia topped the list, while Ohio State was the highest-ranked Big Ten team at No. 3. Three other teams in the conference came in ahead of the Wolverines: Wisconsin (12), Illinois (19) and Penn State (22).
Predictions have run the gamut for Michigan, which is adopting new head coach Rich Rodriguez's offensive and defensive system, but lost several key players to graduation and the NFL draft.
