Tom Brady made his first appearance as an employee of Fox Sports this weekend. The future NFL Hall of Fame quarterback wasted little time in predicting success for his alma mater, the Michigan Wolverines.
Speaking on Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff, Brady went on to predict that Michigan would once again repeat as Big Ten champions.
“Look, guys, I hate to ruin this for everyone else, but this is Michigan’s year. We’re coming off two back-to-back Big Ten titles, two straight Ohio State beatdowns. Sorry, [former Ohio State coach and current Fox analyst] Urban [Meyer]. Look, Coach Harbaugh’s got all his key pieces back. He’s got a blue-chip quarterback in J.J. McCarthy. A two-headed monster in the backfield. And we got a loaded defense.”
Brady, however, stopped short of predicting a national title for the Wolverines.
“The winningest program in college football history is ready to go and make another national championship run. We got this. Let’s go. Go Blue.”
Michigan last won a split national championship in 1997. However, the 2023 team appears on paper to be the best of the Harbaugh era, so Ryan Day and Ohio State will certainly have their hands full when they travel to Ann Arbor on Nov. 25.
