Stewart Mandel has a post up about his five predictions for 2009 in college football. One says that Fat Charlie will still be at Notre Dame in 2010.
But prediction #3 is about Michigan. Mandel predicts Tate Forcier (yes, mentioned by name), continuity, and experience will lead Michigan to at least a 5-game improvement in the standings next year.
For all of you counting at home, that would be at least 8 wins. Or, the number of wins Lloyd had in his last regular season as Michigan coach.
Here are eight wins for you:
Western Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Notre Dame, unnamed FCS opponent, Indiana, Iowa, Illinois, Purdue.
The last four are Penn State, Little Brother, Wisconsin and Ohio State. Maybe one or two more wins in there. GO BLUE.
