I know, I know. CFN. Consider the source, son!
But hey, they DID predict UM 52, App State 13 during Week 1, so there's that.
I think Michigan surprises everyone, improves from last week, and blows ND's house down in epic fashion thanks to Touchdown Neezus!
It won't even be that close.
Michigan 37, Notre Dame 20
I actually like Will Muschamp. His distaste for Urban Meyer is pretty well known around this blog, and certainly wins him points.
For those who don't know, Muschamp suspended 3 players for the opener against Idaho. But then the game against Idaho was suspended due to weather and ultimately will never be played.
So then this:
But the non-game did serve one purpose. It allowed Florida coach Will Muschamp to free three players from disciplinary jail based on time served. Gators Darious Cummings, Demarcus Robinson and Jay-nard Bostwick were reinstated after being suspended for a game that wasn’t played.
So if there is a winner from The Opener That Never Happened, it’s the three Florida Gators who got off with time served. One play.
Thoughts? Say the App State game was cancelled - would we be ok with Glasgow playing the next game?
I am here in LV for a couple of days and went to place a few bets and noticed that the line for UM/ND has moved. Opened at +6, then last Saturday was +5.5 and is now +3.5. I was told that betting interest in the game has been the highest so far this year.
For those of you who don't already watch The League on FXX, you should. It's hilarious and they had cameos at the NFL Combine with Rich Eisen, Taylor Lewan, Mike Evans, and a few others. Feel free to delete if not thread worthy etc....
It's Notre Dame week. More specifically, it's the last Notre Dame week. I wanted to make a few different wallpapers for this game, but only had time finish one. I figure one is still better than none, right?
Anyway. The photo I used is from the 2012 game (I believe it was taken by ESPN). I chose this one because Michigan will be wearing away jerseys this week. It's also just a really cool photo. I used a color pop effect to really bring out the maize and blues. I think it looks pretty cool. Kinda neon-ish.
Anyway, here it is. Hope you like it. Go Blue! (click for full size)
Let's hear your predictions for the ND game. Who wins and why? Who will be the players of the game on offense and defense?
I have UM winning 28-13. UM goes into halftime ahead 14-13 and then comes out in the second half with a dominating performance defensively. I think Frank Clark is going to have a very good game as I see ND LT Ronnie Stanley struggling with his speed all night. Clark ends the game with 2 sacks and 3 TFL. On offense, I'm going with Devin Funchess. I think the running game will struggle some (still looking better than 2013) but the Devin to Devin connection will continue its rise to the top QB/WR combo in the conference. Funchess ends with 10 receptions for 165 yards and 2 more TD's.
