ANN ARBOR, Mich. – The wait is finally over.
Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh has finally released his team's roster for the 2017 season.
Coach Harbaugh posted the roster on his Twitter page just after 5:30 a.m. Wednesday. It consists of three pictures which show the roster in no numerical order on white paper.

Harbaugh faced much criticism from the Wolverines' upcoming opponent the Florida Gators, members of the media and fans for not releasing his roster well in advance of the season opener.
He did say earlier this month he would release the roster on Aug. 30 and he did just that.
Michigan opens the 2017 season this Saturday vs. Florida in the AdvoCare Classic in Arlington, Texas.
