Less than a week away from game day!!! Finally!! Hope everyone is excited for this season as I am. Is it just me or has this offseason been longer then usual? Anyway, I'd like to see how you all think UM will fare this season??? Without trying to be biased, here is what i think we're lookin at this season...
Western- W. No explaination needed.
ND- L. Hopefully the UM crowd will be rockin, but ND might just be a little too talented this season.
Eastern- W. Hopin English can get something respectable under his belt this season, but it doesnt look good for him.
SDSU- W. Close, they are still a pretty talented team, but Hoke will have their number.
Minn- W. They will be better this season, still very little talent though. Mich runs all over them.
Northwestern- W. Shootout thriller. This is really more like a toss-up. I always hate playin NW, especially there.
State-W/L. Toss up. Usually when I feel that way, I honestly feel UM is outmatched, which is probably the case. State is talented, but UM will come out ready..I hope.
Purdue- W. I don't think Purdue is talented AT ALL. They do have a lot of returners on D though. Prob another low scoring game again, but UM is in control the whole time.
Iowa- W. Is anyone else not as high on Iowa as I am? Huge losses on D and that QB who always seemed to pull W's out of his ass.
Illinois- L. Illinois is my sleeper team this year to contend for the big 10. Zook is a better coach then he gets credit for, and they will be improved this season, 9 or 10 wins in my mind. Anyone else's thoughts?
Nebraska- L. Pelini is a great coach, the D will be too good. Robinson plays his worst game.
Ohio- W. Finally. Ohio struggles this season, they will struggle to find an identity.
So, 9-3 or 8-4. Not too shabby for Hoke's first year. UM gets back on track.
Would love to see all your thoughts as well.
