Does MGoBlog have a fixed day before each season to gather everyone's season W-L predictions? If so, delete me. If not, this is as good a time as any so here's mine to kick things off:
Aug. 31Central Mich W Cupcake 1
Sept. 7 Notre Dame F Rees is underrated. Were this on the road I'd lean to a loss, but since at home. Coin flip due to lack of Jake Ryan.
Sept. 14 Akron W Cupcake 2
Sept. 21 @ ConnecticutW Not a cupcake, and first road game, but W regardless.
Sept. 28 --bye--
Oct. 5 Minnesota W Tougher test than expected, but W.
Oct. 12 @ Penn State F We rise as they fall, and here the arcs meet in the middle. Could go either way since it's at PSU, otherwise heavy Michigan lean.
Oct. 19 Indiana W See Minnesota.
Nov. 2 @ MSU F We finally significantly out talent MSU (offense no question, defense coin flip) but the fact that it's at E.L. and that this game is Dantonio's entire existence, means it's a coin flip.
Nov. 9 Nebraska W Typically a coin flip, but my 6th sense tells me we spank them at home this year.
Nov. 16@ NW L NW is a very good team, and I hope I'm wrong, but unless Mattison can solve NW's two headed QB hydra, I sense a frustrating loss for us where we trail the entire game but keep it close.
Nov. 23@ Iowa W See Minnesota. Iowa's home edge will be the only thing keeping this from a blow out.
Nov. 30Ohio State F Will Borges turtle again as he did in the 2nd half last year? Will Mattison solve the puzzle of OSU's running game where he must contain Miller on the edges without getting spanked by Hyde up the gut as happened last year? Our home edge makes this a flip, otherwise, advantage a seasoned Braxton Miller.
Variance 7-5 to 11-1
Prediction 9 Wins - 3 Losses (MSU, NW, OSU)
