    Oh believe me. The team is playing with a huge chip on their shoulder this year. I would not want to play our Defense. There is going to be some anger therapy played out in these games. It is the offense that is just unreadable. We have great talent at every position. We have 5 RBs that would be starters if they moved to other teams, kick ass tight ends, the best fullback I've seen in a long time, and talent all over the offense that points to a great season. The problem is, once you get past the first 7 on O-Line it is all freshmen, our quarterbacks is either a freshman or someone that hasn't shown he can be a quarterback at this level yet, our wide receivers are all freshmen and sophmores for the first 5 games. It is just unreadable until they get into pads and start hitting. Then even more so once we start with the games this season. If we start dropping O-Line to injury we are in trouble.

    I will put a caveate on my prediction. If the starting O-Line stays healthy all season then we go 12-0

    the defense will be very good. the offense is a huge ? and stating you have 5 RBs could be starters on other teams, yea sure in the MAC.

    I didn't say that the offense was huge. I said that the offense was hard to get a read on.

    The five backs we have are studs. I'll come back to eat crow if they don't produce as a group.

  • MICHIGAN

    9/3 Western Michigan W 37-13
    9/10 Notre Dame L 31-17 (Night game won't stop a non-suspended Michael Floyd. Or Manti Te'o. Too much Irish firepower for a new-look UM D and O. Not having a P is going to be a problem)
    9/17 Eastern Michigan W 42-12
    9/24 San Diego State W 28-24
    10/1 Minnesota W 34-24
    10/8 @Northwestern W 31-27
    10/15 @ Michigan State L 3-49 (I think MSU will win, so I had fun with the score. It's the inverse of the 2002 game, where UM took zero pity on a dysfunctional MSU team.)
    10/29 Purdue W 35-21
    11/5 @ Iowa L 17-34
    11/12 @ Illinois L 28-31
    11/19 Nebraska L 14-31 (Nebraska's DL and Peso scheme are the perfect solution to a running QB who's being asked to move the ball through the air)
    11/26 Ohio State L 17-38 (Minimal sanctions for tOSU means a possible CCG berth on the line for one of these schools)

    6-6 (3-5)

    Only off by about, oh, 4 wins.
