The gist of the article is that our defense is awesome and MSU isn't that good.
The Big Ten sets up well for Michigan this year, with three home games against Northwestern, Michigan State and Ohio State. And given how Ohio State has played on offense thus far, that game is also not projecting to be quite as lopsided as it did in the preseason.
EDIT: MSU not that good?
So I don't know what Sports Cheat Sheet is, but they have an article up listing the 5 reasons why we're going to win the B1G Title this year. As they're saying things I want to hear, they are obviously a credible website staffed with smart people.
Spoiler alert: Three of the five reasons listed are HARBAUGH.
Chen takes on Verlander today. First pitch is supposed to be at 1207. Hopefully the 'Gers can even up the series today.
Well it's playoff time, here's tonight's pitching matchup.
- Max Scherzer
- 18-5, 220.1 IP and a 3.15 ERA
- FIP: 3.12
- K/9: 10.29
- Chris Tillman
- 13-6, 207.1 IP and a 3.34 ERA
- FIP: 4.01
- K/9: 6.51
After a horrific start to the season Tillman has really come on during the 2nd half to become Baltimore's pseudo Ace.
Living in Baltimore this is sort of a dream come true for me, hopefully the Tigers have a good showing here and take a split back home to Comerica with them. I'm heading over to Camden in about 20 minutes but here's a gamethread in case anyone wanted it. EAT EM UP!

PS: If somebody breaks Marchand's face into pieces, I wouldn't be upset.
