How is this sudden cold going to effect the team?

All the practices have been in crazy hot and humid weather. Now, just today, the temp has dropped 30 degrees. Is this going to effect catches and ball retention?

It will influence the team drastically, as they will be forced to wear some extra clothing.  All kidding aside, I don't think it will make too big of a deal except to some of the true freshman from warm weather states.  Connecticut has to play in this too and the wind might help our secondary out - maybe?

Not the temperature, but the wind. Thank goodness, as I do believe that helps both teams secondary. I'd love to see a good Michigan running game to start the season!!!

It won't effect them. I'm sure that you're aware of all the recruits that we pull in from Florida and they thrive in this cold weather.


But seriously, if this throws them off enough to hurt their performance then this could be a very long season.

Maybe if it was super-windy and this was a precision-passing offense, I'd be worried.  But all the wind will do is super-charge Dilithium and the slot-ninjas as they run down the field.
