Former Wolverine Khalid Hill: Our 2016 team was the best Michigan team ever
Michigan was so close to in 2016.
A last-second Iowa field goal and a questionable spot for Ohio State accounted for the Wolverines’ only two losses in the regular season that year. In just two short years, Jim Harbaugh had Michigan competing for a B1G title and in the mix for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
There’s no doubt that the 2016 squad was one of the best teams Michigan has had in recent memory. But a former fullback actually believes that team was the best team in program history.
On Monday night, former UM fullback Khalid Hill took to Twitter to talk about the 2016 team, saying it was the best every assembled in Ann Arbor.

“Our 2016 Michigan team was the best Michigan team ever assembled…despite a late night in Iowa, J.T. (Barrett) being short and not having enough time in the last one but yeah.”
Michigan lost to by a single point to Iowa and it took Ohio State two overtimes and the questionable spot to defeat the Wolverines. In the Orange Bowl against Florida State, Michigan lost 33-32. Harbaugh’s bunch finished the year 10-3.
So yeah, you could make the argument that the 2016 Michigan team was one of the best in the program’s history. But saying it’s the best team ever assembled at an institution that has won multiple national championships?
That might be a little harder to argue.
Hill believes it though, and it’s clear he believes the Wolverines could’ve been a team capable of winning the national championship that season.
