Bleacher Report simulation projects Michigan football team to tank in 2013

Michigan's outlook does not look too good, according to the Bleacher Report's simulation. - EA Sports

The sky is falling for Michigan in the virtual video game world.

NCAA Football 14 came out Tuesday, and one of the best staples of the college football offseason is Bleacher Report writer Adam Kramer’s simulation article he writes each year.

And although there is much joy to be had when reading the 2013 edition of his dynasty simulation, you may be upset as a Michigan fan.

According to Kramer’s play through, which has no merit to anything factual, Michigan will finish No. 8 in the Big Ten with a 6-7 record. Ouch.

Michigan returns an All-American left tackle in Taylor Lewan and has the quarterback with the most upside in college football in Devin Gardner. Kramer’s PlayStation does not believe those two returning players will help U-M finish ahead of, gulp, 8-5 Minnesota.

Of course, Ohio State wins the conference and beats Stanford 30-7 in the Rose Bowl, while Texas tops Michigan State 24-13 in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

In Kramer’s NCAA Football 13 simulation, Michigan finished No. 2 in the Big Ten behind Wisconsin and went 11-3 overall.
