Herbstreit said Michigan will be 10-1 going into The Game

This may have already been talked about in other threads, but I haven't seen it. I also haven't gone through every post either. Sorry if it's old news.

During the GameDay telecast Herbstreit said he believes Michigan will be 10-1 heading into Columbus, with our only loss coming to MSU. Desmond agreed. Pollack said that might be possible, but it'd be because of our schedule and Notre Dame and Northwestern missing players, and we still wouldn't be what he considers a "great team." Herbstreit countered, saying that Michigan will be a lot better than most people think. This was prior to the Appalachian State game.

I was really surprised to hear this, especially since a vast majority of analysts I've heard talk about Michigan said that we'll be down again. Herbstreit even gave more credit to us than I did, as I guessed we'd be 9-2 at that point.

So far so good! It'll be nice to get some respect again.

I was frankly shocked that no such thread was currently up as we're typically so conscious of the slate. No matter, a few notable ones:

Florida State / Oklahoma State - currently 10-0 FSU with the first quarter nearly over.

LSU / Wisconsin - this should be an interesting one. I think it is the only SEC / Big Ten game scheduled this season.

Oregon / South Dakota - Prediction? Pain. No, seriously, the line has Oregon winning by an amount yet to be computed.

To complement the RB thread, I'd like to know what everything thinks about the starting OL next week, now that Glasgow returns to play?  I tried to watch the OL from my seats today and I saw some good things, but also saw Miller get pushed into the backfield once or twice.  BTN focused on the OL during their highlight show, and to MY surprise, Magnuson had some very nice seal blocks that helped free Smith and Green. (I was critical of him after watching a couple clips from practice).

So, who you got?

LT - Cole

RG - Mags

C - Miller

RG - Kalis

LT - Braden

Pretty much what the title says. I'm assuming that there are plenty of people backing Green, and plenty backing Smith. Green got more yardage total, but Smith had more yards per attempt.

Obviously, they'll both get plenty of carries throughout the year, (likely to be 1a and 1b) but I'm curious as to what people's thoughts and logic are.

Edit: I'm asking because I'm genuinely not sure who I'd pick - go ahead and sway me

A little more than half way through the 3rd, Everett Gholson looks to have shaken the rust from his vacation.  He's picked up a couple of TD's on the ground and seems to be distributing to a number of recievers without any int's so far.  The rain will make this game hard to do an apples to apples comparison to the boys in Blue.  Hopefully our more aggressive defensive strategy pays off and we get to Gholson early but are able to contain him.  Looks like Rice is able to get penetration often enough but their secondary is giving too much cushion.  ND's RB McDaniel seems to be a gamer.  I'd love to see Kelly go grape ape again next week!

Not to rain on the snowflakes but Clark tweeted (strangely late in the game) he was taking 2 more officials but remains firmly committed to UM.  With his history ... and Hoke's policy... not sure what it means. 

Note - he has since erased the 2 tweets where he said he was going to take 2 officials and separately that he remained commited to UM.

EDIT - Kyle Bogenschutz of Scout has one of the erased tweets in his timeline.  Josh Newkirk has it as well.

Via every single person on Twitter. I'm sure this has been posted in the Jabrill updates thread 5 or 6 threads down, but no need to have to skip past 60+ replies to find it.

This news is the ribbon on top of as close to a perfect first game as we could hope for. Great performances all around, and major injury free.
