I didn't get to hear the entire segment, but the "Big Drew and Jim" show on 96.1 in West Michigan were arguing that we need to demand a victory Saturday against Florida.
I couldn't help but feel as if they were adding drama for the sake of it.
They said Zaire is their best QB and is being benched for a Freshman QB. However, reality is Zaire stunk in practices, may get playing time Saturday anyways, and Franks is a Redshirt Freshman with a year in the system that was a highly touted recruit.
They seemed to be ignoring that half of the 10 suspended had zero chance to see the field and only 2 were starters.
Add all of this up and 96.1 was saying that Michigan should demand a victory and anything less than a convincing win is a shame.
Meanwhile, Phil Steele, who is generally respected is straight up picking Florida to still win this game. He is claiming that Michigan has too much inexperienced talent and that Florida will have far more players with experience on the field.
I am in the middle. I think Michigan should be favored to win and not winning will be a bitter disappointment, but I still think that Florida even with the suspensions is still better than most BigTen teams and capable of beating a good team.
Where do you all stand?
