I am having a debate with someone as to how good this Michigan team would be if this was playing a Big East schedule. I am arguing that as presently constructed, this team would possibly lose a game if not run the table in that conference. Even as bad as the defense has been.
Outside of the running back situation, this team is more talented on offense at most of the other positions than the best West Virginia teams of Rich's WV career. I think this team would win by outscoring everybody just like Cincinnati did last year. Cincinnati's team fielded a defense last year that gave up a hell of a lot of points in many of the games they won before they finally got exposed.
I am curious if people think Rich has built and offense that is on par or better than the one he fielded at West Virginia with Pat White.
