Well the board is slow and there really has not been much talk about football lately so wanted to hear some thoughts about the upcoming season.
What will be the Benchmark for a great season as far as wins are concerned? 9 wins is what most believe to be considered a successful year for Michigan.
An 11 win season will be tough this year considering the strength of schedule. With the potential to play 5 top 25 teams and 4 of those away from Ann Arbor, losses may be all but inevitable. What do you believe to be the key factors in a successful season? How would you rank the importance of goals listed below.
1) Win B1G championship
2) Beat sparty
3) Beat Ohio
4) Beat Alabama
5) Beat Notre Dame
I believe that regardless of wins/losses to our rivals and Alabama, a B1G championship has to be the big goal. I feel that sparty is a must win game over all of the other games because of obvious implications and protecting our home-field. Beating Ohio in Urban's first year would be huge as well. Would you be happy if we lost to Sparty, OSU, and Alabama and still won the big ten?
