Recommended Posts

I guess Big Blue wasn't quite ready for "Prime Time". :kicksrock:

Michigan sure doesn't look like the #8 team in the country.

 

And Bama sure doesn't look like just the #2 team in the country. Hoke should be fired for running Robinson just twice in the first half. He'd probably have Tom Brady running the wishbone. Idiot.

I think Michigan was very lucky with things going their way last year. I think they more an 8-5 team. That's where I expect them to be this year since there aren't any big changes. If they get unlucky or have key injuries they could be a .500 team or worse. I'm a Michigan fan posting this.

Well... I really hate Bama... But, I hate MI more. It's a damn shame Bama doesn't paly anyone the rest of the year (other than LSU) because they're going to go undefeated and end up playing USC for the NC.

 

The only reason I'm even watching CFB this year is to see how bad Richt can screw up and still manage to keep his job.

I never really understood the high ranking on Michigan. I get that the team was a lot better under the new head coach than the previous year, but assuming they make that same jump again was kind of a reach IMO.

I don't know, 8th isn't that high. If they would have played a patsy game 1 and gotten through ND in a few weeks and Air Force for that matter, lost to 2 of these three, MSU, OSU, and one misc team and won their bowl game they probably finish around 8th with a 11-2 record, assuming they didn't go the Big 10 title game. Sneaking into 8th isn't all that great either, looks good on the resume' though (Top 10 team).

 

That said, I don't think now they'll finish 9-3 (with a bowl win). I'm thinking more like 9-4 over all. My gut tells me they'll get better as the year goes on, especially the defense and O-Line. With Fitz back the rushing game with the 3 of them will be better.

 

Denard will be Denard, have some big games against a few patsies, be ok to solid in a few of the big games and come up lame in a few of the big games.

 

Local radio slap is right, wish Hoke would have had the sack to move him to a Percy Harvin type role when he got to UM although I'm not sure how good the back up was. Plus maybe he bolts if Hoke is honest with that to him. This team will change a ton starting next year. Sounds dumb but I'm looking forward to next year and more so to 2014.

BAMA has plenty chances to lose. LSU, Arkansas and the SEC East champion.

 

I guess UGA will underachieve as usual...

They will not lose to Arkansar or the SEC east champ Gamecocks.

 

You are correct with regard to the underachieving part.

I think I read they ranked #1 or close to it in recruitment this year, getting the most top ranked high school players in the country to sign on with Michigan.
