Just read Michelin's post, and other optismists, that we can win Saturday. Well, of course, that's why they play the game. But how do we win? People point out the Purdue game and say we have a chance. A couple things. Purdue forced multiple turnovers. Can our defense do that? Purdue controlled the ball with a short passing game. Can our offense do that?
I think the only chance U of M has is to score a TD on either defense or special teams. Our offense needs to have sustained drives to keep the defense off the field. Tressel settles for a field goal or two that their back-up kicker misses. The biggest key for us to avoid mistakes. Penalties on offense that are drive killers. No turn-overs. And maybe Brian should add stop roughing the damn punter to catch the damn ball for special teams keys.
chance of bowl: 13.6%
