As THE_KNOWLEDGE seems to be lost in both time and space this week, please post your predicting for this weeks game here. It’s always great to see what everyone is expecting from Michigan. Hopefully THE_KNOWLEDGE finds the 1.21 jigawatts needed to return for next week.

I will go with a Michigan win, something in the 27-21 or 27-24 range. We're a slight favorite anyway, I think we can edge them out even in their own house. 

To the OP's point, I do not believe we had a formal announcement of the current Protege. Hopefully, we hear who the honored MGoBlogger is at some point.

Can't see us winning this..  Defense has yet to show that we can actually sack a QB on a decent team.. and if we don't he will throw for 350 on us easily.  Our secondary is not good and we haven't faced an offense that is ranked higher than 100th in the nation yet

This will be Mattisons coming out game this year..I think he will be very aggressive and exotic with blitzes to confuse the freshmen QB and we win big 42-13

30-20 Michigan.

I'm expecting another basic and/or boring gameplan in order to reduce turnovers on the road.

If Devin is able to make throws while not scrambling for his life it should be a 10-14 point win.

Points will be scored. More for us than them would be my guess. I also think both sides of the ball show a bit more this week. Think the play calling goes from vanilla, to French vanilla. Fans approve across the globe.
