I haven't said much on the game these past couple weeks for the simple reason that holiday travel has thrown off a lot of my scheduled writing time. However, I tend to echo the sentiments of everyone else. Michigan looks to have an up and down day as the offense struggles to find consistency against an aggressive, attacking defense. Meanwhile, Michigan's defense should be able to do what it has done all year: grind opposing offensive drives to a halt with solid run defense and a secondary that has a knack for limiting big plays.
Ultimately, I don't think Michigan will have enough to outlast South Carolina, but it should be a close game late which means that anything is possible.

Oh yeah, GO BLUE!
