Michigan Monday is up at the Ozone. Not going to quote much, as the Iowa loss is too depressing, and so is reading about it.
One observation made was the prediction of a victory at Illinois:
Winning out certainly seems daunting. For some reason, however, I'm pretty confident in a Michigan win over Illinois right now. I can't imagine a bye week for Ron Zook is actually a good thing for the Illini.
I am very interested to see how Michigan responds to their loss, and tend to agree that Hoke, Mattison, and Borges will have their team up, ready to go, and destroy Illinois. I still believe that Nebraska and Ohio are winnable games, and don't think winning out is unthinkable. I would be ecstatic to beat Illinois and Ohio. One comment made elsewhere is that Michigan needs a signature win, and I agree. It is critical to win at least one of our last two games, preferably both, and most preferably against Ohio.
