I'm the opposite of aMAIZEingSean--went to Cornell undergrad, Michigan for grad school--and when I read this, I almost spit coffee all over my monitor. I'm not sure the Cornell football team would be good enough to serve as Michigan's scout team.

Don't know about that--I saw Simmons on TV promoting his second book (PTI, Colbert Report) and thought he was absolutely awful.

I'm also seeing something in the 8-4 neighborhood; I'd break it down thusly:
1. Utah: Win
I think the team will struggle a bit with this game but pull it out. I'd predict a relatively ugly offensive performance, meaning this will be one of those games the defense wins for us.
2. Miami Ohio: Win
If this is the "game we lose even though we shouldn't," I'll feel almost as bad as I did after last year's season-opening debacle. Almost.
3. at Notre Dame: Win
A good college football coach might make this a tough one for Michigan. Good thing Charlie Weis isn't a good college football coach.
4. Wisconsin: Loss
Right now, I just have the feeling the Badgers are the better team.
5. Illinois: Win
On paper, we should probably lose this, but I'm still not a believer in Ron Zook. And I think the Illini will miss Rashard Mendenhall more than they think.
6. Toledo: Win
7. at Penn State: Loss
Man, it looks weird to type that. I think I'm just assuming that Penn State will be a tough place to play, even if JoePa last beat us when he was in his 30s (give or take a few years).
8. Michigan State: Win
I know there's a good chance we'll lose this one. I still refuse to predict that outcome.
9. at Purdue: Loss
This feels like a good candidate for the game we shouldn't lose but do. I have no real justification for that statement, of course.
10. at Minnesota: Win
11. Northwestern: Win
12. at Ohio State: Loss
Let's just keep expectations low for this one, so that we can either be pleasantly surprised by a win, or right about a loss.
