Was at a book store today and wanted to get the Phil Steele preview. I really disagree with him a lot, but I love the magazine mainly for the schedules and how you can fill them in along with a bunch of facts.
While I was there, I picked up the Athlon preview magazine and they had Michigan winning the division going 7-1, and having a final record of 11-2. They had ohio at the top of their division which made me laugh, because they are banned from the title game. So the title game would be Michigan vs wisconsin.
In the Lindys magazine, they had Michigan winning the division as well. Their outlook on Michigan in the B1G standings said something like: "Forget the bad news, We're in love the Wolverines this year!"
Phil's magazine has Michigan finishing second in the division behind nebraska and going to the Capital One Bowl to face georgia. The bigger joke is that he has state going to the Sugar Bowl to play LSU, despite them finishing behind Michigan. Really phil? You think they would take state over Michigan? He has Michigan rated #22 in his preseason rankings and has ohio, a team who is installing a new system #11. Also another ridiculous prediction of his was the national championship game being Oklahoma vs Florida State.
Either phil has something against Michigan, or he has his head up his ass so far he can taste his breakfast. Because last year he had Michigan going 6-6 and playing in the pizza bowl. Nice pick, phil.....what a fail.
