Five games down and the Rockets are coming to Ann Arbor. The Toledo Rockets.
Toledo -- Oct. 11, TBA
There won't be too much excitement in this game against what is rightfully our's. Toledo will make the quick trip up to Ann Arbor with dreams of the Horror Part II. I'm sure Brady Hoke thinks Toledo has a great shot...and that Ron Paul is a lock for the White House, but there is very very little chance of an upset here.
Sure, it has been Michigan policy in recent years to allow some of these MAC teams to hang around (Miami, Ball State, Eastern), but something tells me this season's policy will be something more along the lines of merciless pillaging and demoralizing pummelization (may be made up).
Toledo brings a lot of starters back on defense this season. This is great news...for the Wolverines. The Rockets were worse than bad on defense last season, ranking 117th in scoring defense. They did shut out Notre Dame though, which may not be true...but they may have. Seriously though, if the offense doesn't have it together by now, it will get a major ego boost on October 11th.
Uh oh, Toledo has a quarterback that will be in his third straight year as the starting signal caller, and their wide receivers are pretty good. Ah, well that kind of plays to UM's strength on defense.
There just isn't a whole lot to say about this match-up. Barring an extremely humiliating lack of respect, much like this post, Toledo doesn't stand a chance. Hopefully UM can take care of business early and get the young guys some playing time. Also, it should be a good tune-up before the next two games - at Penn State and vs. MSU.
