Pat Forde posted his "Dash of reviews and previews" article on ESPN.com today and it has some interesting nuggets, namely the below. All of this stuff goes in one ear and out the other for me but these are still nice mentions/thoughts nonetheless.
First, the requisite Denard mention:
Player we're talking about now that we weren't when September began: Denard Robinson (3), Michigan. He wasn't on any Heisman lists before the season started, in no small part because we weren't sure whether he'd even be the Wolverines' starting quarterback until the day of Michigan's opener against Connecticut. More than 1,400 yards of total offense and four victories later, it's pretty safe to say Shoelace is on our radar.
Michigan-Michigan state prediction:
Michigan State at Michigan (26), Oct. 9.
Why it's big: One or both could still be undefeated, and rather unexpectedly so given preseason expectations. If that team is the Spartans, their Big Ten title aspirations rise with a victory over Michigan, since there is no Ohio State on the schedule. If that team is the Wolverines, Rich Rodriguez's job security rises with a victory over the in-state rivals, since he's 0-2 against Sparty while at Michigan.
Why it's interesting: The Dash wants to see Michigan State middle linebacker and playmaker Greg Jones against the skittering feet of Denard Robinson. The 235-pound Jones can put a hurt on the 190-pound Robinson -- if he can catch him.
Who will win: Michigan, 30-24.
More importantly, his prediction that Chappell will throw 6 interceptions this Saturday [edit: or at least that's the way I read it mean]:
Ben Chappell (36), Indiana. Zero interceptions in 98 attempts. Chappell has thrown the most passes of anyone still alive in the L.I.P., but he's also played against soft competition (Towson, Western Kentucky, Akron). That will end this week. Next game: home against Michigan on Saturday. The Wolverines have six interceptions.
