Well it's officially Notre Dame week in Ann Arbor as of the home opening win and both teams are coming off of dominating victories. Michigan with the 31-7 win over WMU and Notre Dame shuting out Nevada 35-0. Both are going to clash head to head next week as they always do but this win doesn't mean we are going to pound ND or that ND is going to manhandle us. Michigan despite the fact of playing a MAC team showed they fianlly have an offense that can put up points and can do it often with the true freshman Tate Forcier and of course Denard Robinson. However Jimmy Clausen has gotten a lot better and has wide recievers and a half back that can get the job done. But with the way the Wolverines defense looked today and if they can play that way next Saturday they can shut down Clausen and frustrate the offense of Notre Dame. Either way it's a rivalry game but after the embarrassing loss to ND last year Michigan deffinetly has the team that can knock off Notre Dame this year. The big challenge for Michigan now is winning back to back and this year it looks like Michigan has the team to do it! What are your thoughts regarding next saturday's matchup?
Hoke was top notch at this aspect of his job.
