I watched the Big Ten Network's broadcast from practice recently. It pretty much blew, since it was mainly boring commentary, occasionally while there was actual practice footage on the screen. I had hoped for more practice footage, with commentary directed toward practice footage. I would have preferred no commentary and just practice footage.
In any case, Gary Dinardo said that the difference this year is that "Michigan will beat the teams it has more talent than." Or something very close to that. He went on to predict that Michigan will win 5 games. Unfortunately, he did not say which teams he thought we had more talent than. I suppose that would have required looking at the schedule, which can be difficult.
I don't see how the first statement yields leads to the second statement. Taking the first statement as true, "Michigan beats teams with less talent." How many games does Michigan win? And which teams do we beat/lose to?
Measuring talent is difficult. Does this mean average talent of all players? Talent level of players at key skill positions? I think he probably meant the latter. If so, I see loses to Iowa, Penn State, Illinois, and Ohio State.
