This isn't something that people here don't know, but it's worth pointing out again as we look towards ND.
In the Rich Rodriguez era, Michigan has won 1 road game.
While I believe that we are more talented than ND, the road factor is critical. I think a road win at South Bend would separate this year's optimism from last year.
National pundits right now are ridiculous. On Friday, Michigan is a 6 win team. On Monday, Michigan is, according to Todd McShay, a 10 win team.
So for me, instead of focusing on the big picture, it becomes very simple.....
Win on the Road.
