Both sides are full blown cheating right now. The major difference is that A&M are using dummy profiles complete with photos, and most of the UofM cheaters are spamming fan pages which are easy to tell at a glance.
I looked through the Swope votes, and noticed repeats of facebook profiles at intervals of 50 or so, a suspiciously high proportion of Guatemalan voters, and a certain frequency of reused photos with differing account names.
I hope to god EA can tell what's what somehow, otherwise this will look very very bad for us in the end.

Apparently it's the fastest way to cheat the facebook poll, and it's what they've been doing since 2-26-13

Ohio in red, Alabama in pink.
A conscious decision was made there which calls the credibility of this author into serious question, regardless of all his so-called "math."

Urban Meyer must have made a lot of friends in his time at ESPN.

Him, McDowell, another promising QB. That's my 2014 wishlist.
Well, that and Hoke's usual 500 other 4* recruits as well...

Done deal. Mark it down.
I'm more concerned with Sparty in EL, and I think Michigan will drop the ball on the road against either NW or PSU.
I don't think U of M has the talent to go through the all the twists and turns to run the table, but it is possible to get all the breaks your way. 2011 proved that for us (sorta) and 2012 for ND until Bama just Bama'd them
As for ND and Ohio, we should have beaten both on the road, and comparatively we get stronger AND at home, AND they don't have (imo) the defense Sparty has. +Hoke gets us prepared for the rivalry games big time.
Fret no more about those two in 2013.

One massive question mark became substantially smaller in the O-line. The O-line is everything, just ask Alabama.
We should have a better O-line than we did this season if any of our 2012 recruits are in the ballpark of their rankings given their size, and we should have a much more effective backfield as well.
I never saw anything special in any of our 2012 running backs except Rawls in garbage time, they all seem to lack vision, patience and any kind of elusiveness. 2013 on the other hand brings some interesting possibilites. Norfleet is a bigger, meaner, faster version of V Smith, which puts him at Sproles potential.
I've been excited about Drake Johnson for a long time, and Hoke has been talking about him as well. Concerns about WR? Throw Johnson out there, 6' - 6-1 200 lbs and a record breaking hurdler in high school. Now we have a vertical threat to go with our massive possesion recievers and athletic tight ends.
I personally prefer Deveon Smith over Derrick Green based on the film I've seen, but having both can only improve our backfield by leaps and bounds.
Robinson was great but he wasn't going to beat you with his arm, which only made it tougher on the run game.
As stated by others, our defense should be better than it was in 2012, and our schedule is favorable.
ND and OSU are both in A2 - they are gimmies imo. ND should have been a win this season and they are losing talent/coming to the big house. OSU should have been a win also, they squeeked by a lot of mediocre teams and do not/will not have any kind of defense to worry about.
TL:DR Lewan is critical piece, given the rest of the picture. We aren't good enough to expect to run the table, but it isn't out of the question at all.
