Ahead of the 2023 season, Michigan Wolverines football wide receiver Roman Wilson knows that this year could be make or break for the Maize and Blue. This is Jim Harbaugh’s best roster on paper since arriving in Ann Arbor, and with a combination of a favorable schedule, an elite roster, and one of the top coaching staffs nationally, it appears that this fall is going to be huge for the Maize and Blue.

In the past decade, Michigan Wolverines football has won two straight Big Ten titles and appeared in the College Football Playoff twice. While Michigan’s 25-3 overall record and numerous accomplishments over the past two seasons are impressive, it has become clear that this year’s Wolverines are anything but satisfied. After all, they have fallen short of the team’s ultimate goal twice now, despite coming close.

Heading into the 2023 season, Michigan Wolverines football wide receiver Roman Wilson is expected to take on a bigger role for the Maize and Blue. It’s clear that he knows what is at stake for the program this fall.

“It’s now or never,” Roman Wilson said on episode one of ‘Michigan Made.’ “This really has to be our year.”

The offense truly came into its own at the end of the 2022 season, showcasing a formidable passing and rushing attack that led the Michigan Wolverines football team to several impressive late-season victories. Notably, they secured wins over Ohio State (45-23) and in the Big Ten title game (43-22), bringing their total wins for the season to 13. In the Fiesta Bowl, Michigan scored another 45 points, but unfortunately fell short against TCU, who managed to score 51 points of their own.

“Every day, you have an opportunity to get better,” Wilson continued. “Wake up, go to sleep … one percent every day. Just finding something that’s going to make me one-percent better.”

This season, everything is on the line for the Maize and Blue. National title opportunities are fleeting, and the Wolverines find themselves in a prime position to compete for the ultimate prize. The team is loaded with talent and well-prepared to make a national championship run for the 12th time in program history, meaning Roman Wilson and the entire Michigan Wolverines football program must rise to the occasion and demonstrate their commitment to these lofty goals in the months ahead.
