Aidan Hutchinson says Michigan has 'proven everybody wrong'
Michigan isn’t satisfied with a win over Ohio State and a B1G championship. The Wolverines set out to win it all this season, and they have a chance to do exactly that in the next few days.
That doesn’t mean what the team has achieved is lost on any of the players, though. Star defensive end Aidan Hutchinson says that Michigan has already accomplished more than any prognosticators expected heading into the 2021 season.
“I think this Michigan team proved everybody wrong,” Hutchinson said in an interview with ESPN’s Marty Smith. “People thought we were going to win six or seven games. We’ve already got a Big Ten Championship banner hanging up there. We’ve got to beat Georgia, and we gotta play in that national championship to get one more banner up there.”
After an Oct. 30 loss to Michigan State, Michigan steamrolled nearly everyone in its path en rout to a B1G title. At 12-1, the Wolverines are heading to their first ever College Football Playoff semifinal, taking on Georgia in the Orange Bowl.
Michigan will enter the game under a similar circumstance as it began the season. Not many are giving Jim Harbaugh’s squad much of a chance to take down Georgia on New Year’s Eve.
The Wolverines have proved everyone wrong all season long. Can they do it again?
