Michigan finishes in Top 10 in final national polls
Michigan (11-2) finished the 2006 season with a Top 10 ranking in the final national polls. Michigan finished ranked #8 in the AP poll and #9 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll. This was the fifth time Michigan finished in the Top 10 in the season ending AP Poll (and sixth time in the Coaches' Poll Top 10) during Coach Carr's 12-year head coaching tenure. Although impressive, it should be noted that Coach Schembechler's teams finished in the Top 10 in both the AP Poll and the Coaches' Poll eleven (11) of his first 12 seasons as Head Coach. Overall, Michigan has finished in the AP top-25 rankings 21 of the past 22 years and 36 of the past 39 years. The Wolverines were not ranked in 1984 and did not receive a final ranking in 1982 and 2005. Go Blue!
