The trailer for Amazon’s “All or Nothing: The Michigan Wolverines” was recently released, and it looks like it’s going to be trash.

Amazon has been doing this series for a couple years now. It’s must watch content for football fans, especially fans who live for college football.

However, this year’s series is going to be a disaster, and it’s pretty simple to figure out why. Michigan did not have a great year. In fact, they finished fourth in the Big Ten East, got beaten by Ohio State, got embarrassed by Wisconsin and threw away the Big Ten’s perfect bowl record against South Carolina. How are you supposed to make a good documentary about a team that is at best above average?

You can see it in the trailer that the filmmakers didn’t expect this to happen. The series doesn’t even look like it’s about football. The trailer is all about personal and family issues. You know who focuses on stuff of that nature? Filmmakers who don’t have any actual footage of winning.

I don’t know why, but I just can’t stop laughing right now. It’s probably because Michigan fans are so cocky, and they haven’t done anything in nearly a decade. They’ve only won 11 or more games twice in the past 20 years. Yet, you’d think they were Alabama by the way their fans behave.

I will watch every second of this series just to see how they try to spin Harbaugh’s mediocrity into something special. Should be fun!

You can watch it on Amazon April 6.
