First and foremost, a little birdie told me that Taylor Lewan will be ready for Air Force.
Also, nodoby has mentioned how valuable this film will be. Reportedly Saban picked Narduzzi's brain pretty extensively in terms of how they planned to shut down Michigan's offense.
Is there a better way to prepare for MSU? Take Alabama, drop the IQ and recruiting profile of everyone involved by 30%, and insert Nick Sheridan(sorry Nick) at quarterback, and you've got MSU. If Michigan(or any non-Mtn West/MAC team) finds the endzone twice againt MSU, they're going to win that game. This whipping will pay dividends down the road.
And you've got to figure this takes the "bullseye" off of Michigan's back a bit. People might underestimate Denard's potency...they certainly are in the media. Denard is a proven commodity, regardless of how the team performed against a superior opponent. Michigan might have been the first team to catch a butt-whooping from Alabama, but they certainly wont be the last.
