Because people tend to love knowing such things...
Herbstreit, Desmond and Corso all picked UM. Defense appears to be the focus and Howard did a great job of showing missed assignments on UConn dropped balls. Interview with Denard revealed that he didn't know he had ran so many times, nor that he "had done that well," not to mention the record. Weather appears to be drizzly but nothing outrageous. Should Robinson lead UM to victory, it will be the first time a first year starter for Michigan has been able to pull off the feat in South Bend. Apparently Kelly has been using a 5th year senior Gallup to simulate Denard but "there's no way to simulate 4.3/4.4 speed." As they mentioned, running backs may be the deciding factor because Shaw and Smith will have to pick up some blitzes and run great games to take the pressure off the qb.
Go Blue, Beat Notre Dame
edit: Bowden also selects UM, "team speed" considered by Gameday to be UM's advantage
