Tom Brady Proclaims "Michigan's Year" in Fox Sports Debut

16:08 03.09.2023

In a surprising move, Tom Brady, the legendary NFL quarterback and seven-time Super Bowl champion, made his debut as a broadcaster for FOX Sports on Saturday. Although Brady's official role as FOX Sports' No. 1 NFL game analyst will not begin until 2024, he made a guest appearance on the network's "Big Noon Kickoff" show for the opening week of the 2023 college football season. The former Michigan Wolverines quarterback used this opportunity to show his support for his alma mater and the team's championship aspirations.

Brady's message to fans was clear - Michigan is poised for success this season. He confidently stated, "Look, guys, I hate to ruin this for everyone else, but this is Michigan's year." He highlighted the team's recent back-to-back Big Ten titles and victories over their archrival, Ohio State. Brady praised head coach Jim Harbaugh for assembling a talented roster, including highly touted quarterback J.J. McCarthy and a formidable defense. He expressed his belief that Michigan, the winningest program in college football history, is ready to make a run at the national championship.

News of Brady's appearance on "Big Noon Kickoff" quickly spread on social media, with fans excited to see the future Hall of Famer transitioning into the broadcasting world. The video clip shared by Awful Announcing showcased Brady's enthusiasm for his alma mater, sparking further anticipation for the upcoming college football season.

This cameo appearance is just a taste of what's to come from Brady's broadcasting career. The quarterback-turned-analyst signed a massive 10-year, $375 million deal with FOX Sports in 2022, solidifying his commitment to the network. While patiently waiting for his official start date, Brady has been busy diversifying his portfolio as a minority owner of the Las Vegas Raiders and the WNBA's Las Vegas Aces. Additionally, he has recently been romantically linked with Russian model Irina Shayk following his divorce from supermodel Gisele Bundchen.

As fate would have it, Michigan's season opener against East Carolina perfectly aligned with Brady's endorsement of the team. The Wolverines dominated the game, securing a convincing 30-3 victory. Despite head coach Jim Harbaugh's three-game suspension for recruiting violations, the team continued to excel. McCarthy, the quarterback Brady had praised, put on an impressive performance, throwing for 280 yards and three touchdowns. The defense also delivered a commendable effort, aiming for a shutout until the fourth quarter.

Michigan's triumph on the field further solidified Brady's prediction, adding fuel to the team's championship aspirations. The Wolverines' entrance into the College Football Playoff last year, albeit ending in a semifinal loss to TCU, demonstrated their competitiveness. With the support of their passionate alumni, including Brady, Michigan is poised to contend for the Big Ten Conference title and potentially secure a spot in the national championship race.

With Brady's broadcasting career set to begin in 2024, fans eagerly anticipate his insights and analysis as he joins the likes of Greg Olsen as one of FOX Sports' top NFL analysts. Until then, Brady's presence in the sports world remains strong, both as a vocal supporter of his beloved Wolverines and as a shrewd investor in various sports franchises. As the football season unfolds, all eyes will be on Michigan and their quest to fulfill Brady's prediction of a victorious season.
