Of course, 3 of 5 picked UConn last week. Dodd picks against UM for the second straight week, but, has UM at #22 in his power rankings. Huh?
CBS.Sports: 3 of 5 "experts" pick UM
Yeah, I'd like to feel great that three of these household names picked us, but seriously, I already feel great because I'm really feeling like we're going to win. Saturday can't get here soon enough.
I'd rather fly under the radar. I'm very excited about this game and am cautiously optimistic; however, I do realize that a loss here is NOT doomsday.
"I'd rather fly under the radar."
I keep hearing this...
Michigan doesn't fly under the radar. Even when doing poorly it was still a big game for all opponents.
Michigan belongs in the spotlight and will be... I'd rather it be for winning.

This Dodd fellow sounds like a very confused man

Egg counting. Learn about it. RE: NotreDame 2009.
I think most of us had that the team needed to win 1 of the first 2 games and since we are 1-0 (YAY!!!), a loss here is not the end of the world but it does help the team greatly and will hopefully get us 4-0 going into the MSU game.
I think that since this year all 4 of our non-conference games are before any conference games and with Indiana as the first conference game we may actually be looking at 5-0 going into the MSU game if we can pull it off this Saturday.
Did Keeeeurt's post mean to say 4-1 heading into the MSU game? Since he said it would greatly help us, I assume he was referring to a win this weekend which could make 5-0 a realistic possibility heading into the MSU game.
UConn, ND, UMass, BGSU, and Indiana are all before MSU.
Or are we not counting UMass? I think we are allowed to count 1 win against an FCS school for bowl eligibility purposes so there is no reason to discredit a win there. (Although I am hoping we are not worrying about bowl eligibility come the end of the season)
I was making the same point you were. I know its hard to tell since the format change but it was a direct response to his post not yours.
Note Jacobi's explanation of his pick below:
Adam Jacobi, Blogger: Michigan QB Denard Robinson was a revelation last week, wasn't he? Notre Dame's front seven isn't to be trifled with, but can Brian Kelly get them prepared to contain Robinson? If not, can Notre Dame outshoot Michigan on the other side of the ball? Tough call, but even in South Bend, I like Michigan. Prediction: Michigan 31, Notre Dame 20
I'm surprised at the Miss. St. and South Carolina love.
Its CBS. You should not be surprised by any SEC love on CBS.
I'm surprised we haven't heard more Jacksonville State love from them. How else could a 1-AA team beat a team with ESS EEE SEE SPEED?
