Over/Under

Very simple, you say whether you think we'll be over (higher) or under (lower) than the number given...

  1. 2,500 yards passing for Denard Robinson on the season (bowl included)
    ---OVER (I think Denard finally develops as a solid passer)
  2. 1,000 yards rushing for both Denard Robinson & Fitzgerald Toussaint
    ---OVER (I think Fitz and Denard finish with similar numbers...I expect Rawls to have solid numbers as well)
  3. 15 combined sacks for all Michigan DE's
    ---UNDER (I believe I read in HTTV that Roh/Black combined for 5.5 last year...I'm not sure what the SDE position produced, but I doubt it was too much more. I think we get close, but slightly under. With that said, I think the LBs and Ss will have more sacks than last year)
  4. 13.5 games STARTED by Fitzgerald Toussaint & Frank Clark (combined)
    ---UNDER (I thought Clark was going to start a good portion of this year, obviously Fitz was the starter at RB. Now I'm unsure if Clary will play at all and I think Fitz will sit the first couple games, not start the next couple, and be back by the B1G season. That's 10 games (including B1G Championship and Bowl) for Fitz, but I don't see Clark starting 4 games this year)
  5. 24.5 commits in the 2013 recruiting class
    ---OVER (I think  we get get Treadwell and Green)

Fact or Fiction

Also simple, you say whether you think the following statement is FACT or FICTION...

  1. Denard Robinson will be invited to the Heisman Trophy Ceremony
    ---FACT (The hype is there and he'll have a good year. I think he finishes 3rd or 4th)
  2. Michigan will have at least ONE 1,000 yard WR
    ---FICTION (I don't think this tradition starts again until Shane Morris is throwing to Darboh and/or Chesson)
  3. Kyle Kalis will be starting on the OL by the end of the regular season
    ---FACT (I think he'll be the starting LG - also *knock on wood* if he's the #6 OL like Schofield last year, he could be starting due to injury) 
  4. Will Campbell will make 1st or 2nd team All-B1G
    ---FACT (I'm dreaming, nothing more) 
  5. Michigan will finish with the #1 recruiting class in the country by the combined score/rankings of the 4 major recruiting sites
    ---FACT (I think we get Treadwell and Green and hold on to that #1 spot with USC's sanctions limiting their numbers)

Over/Under

Very simple, you say whether you think we'll be over (higher) or under (lower) than the number given...

  1. 2,500 yards passing for Denard Robinson on the season (bowl included) [OVER, only needs to average 178 per game if Michigan makes the conference championship, 192 if not]
  2. 1,000 yards rushing for both Denard Robinson & Fitzgerald Toussaint [OVER, Fitz will  miss some games, but he'll be more consistent than last season, and as the established starter he'll get more carries]
  3. 15 combined sacks for all Michigan DE's [UNDER, sacks will come from the linebackers and secondary this season]
  4. 13.5 games STARTED by Fitzgerald Toussaint & Frank Clark (combined) [UNDER, Fitz will miss a few games, but Clark could get a lengthy suspension of the Stonum variety]
  5. 24.5 commits in the 2013 recruiting class [OVER]

 

Fact or Fiction

Also simple, you say whether you think the following statement is FACT or FICTION...

  1. Denard Robinson will be invited to the Heisman Trophy Ceremony [FICTION, Denard will have a great season, but if Michigan loses 2 or 3 games he won't get the invite]
  2. Michigan will have at least ONE 1,000 yard WR [FICTION, no one on the roster jumps out as a potential 1,000 yard guy unless one of the freshmen explodes]
  3. Kyle Kalis will be starting on the OL by the end of the regular season [FACT, if someone goes down with an injury, Kalis could go in and lock down the spot, even if the previous starter recovers]
  4. Will Campbell will make 1st or 2nd team All-B1G [FICTION, Big Will will have a good season, but he won't be able to put up the numbers neccessary to be all-conference like some other Big Ten DTs will]
  5. Michigan will finish with the #1 recruiting class in the country by the combined score/rankings of the 4 major recruiting sites [FICTION, easily top 5 and likely top 3, but a few flashier recruits will help other schools jump Michigan in the rankings]

Over 

Under might still be same answer if you changed DE to DL

Under...BB gets most of the starts.

Over

Fact...doesn't win it though

Over/Under

Very simple, you say whether you think we'll be over (higher) or under (lower) than the number given...

  1. 2,500 yards passing for Denard Robinson on the season (bowl included)  - OVER  [will develop as a passer, but is bound to have 1-2 "not so good games"]
  2. 1,000 yards rushing for both Denard Robinson & Fitzgerald Toussaint - UNDER  [praying that Fitz misses < 2 games]
  3. 15 combined sacks for all Michigan DE's  - OVER  [sacks will come more from LB & S]
  4. 13.5 games STARTED by Fitzgerald Toussaint & Frank Clark (combined)  - UNDER  [basically just praying here . . .]
  5. 24.5 commits in the 2013 recruiting class - OVER [Treadwell & _____]

 

Fact or Fiction

Also simple, you say whether you think the following statement is FACT or FICTION...

  1. Denard Robinson will be invited to the Heisman Trophy Ceremony - FICTION  [he will have a good year, but with 1-2 subpar games he will be out of contention]
  2. Michigan will have at least ONE 1,000 yard WR - FICTION  [Unless one of the freshman really step up, I'm not sure anyone on the roster will be capable of this]
  3. Kyle Kalis will be starting on the OL by the end of the regular season - FACT  [I'd love to see him redshirt, but because of injury I believe he will be pressed in to duty and will eventually 'win' the spot outright]
  4. Will Campbell will make 1st or 2nd team All-B1G - FICTION  [Big Will may have a good final campaign, but DT is a strength in the B1G and he would have to put up great numbers.  Just out of reach, IMO]
  5. Michigan will finish with the #1 recruiting class in the country by the combined score/rankings of the 4 major recruiting sites - FICTION  [likely within the Top 3]
