Dear Michigan fans, let Joe Milton be himself instead of lofty comparisons, expectations

The Michigan Wolverines and its coaching staff will not come out and outright say it, but we can.

Joe Milton will be the starting quarterback when the season opens on Oct. 24 at Minnesota. This became even more apparent last week with the news that Dylan McCaffrey has opted out of the 2020 season and will reportedly seek a transfer.

Believe it or not, this is the first time in the six-year Jim Harbaugh era at Michigan that one of the players he recruited out of high school will take season-opening first-team reps at the position.
