Michigan Football 2010 Season

Posted on: February 17, 2010 10:42 am

I have read articles that are predicting 9 wins this coming season.  Am I being rediculous when I predict 6 wins?  Obviously it is too early to make any predictions when spring practices havent even started and the sting of the previous two seasons is still fresh in my memory, but I am going to anyway!  Here is how I see the season going.  First off Michigan plays an up and coming UConn team and wins a close game 34-28 to start 1-0.  In the second game of the season we travel to Notre Dame with their new coach, new QB and no Golden Tate.  I dont know why, but I have a bad feeling about this game.  Maybe because Floyd will be healthy.  Michigan was TERRIBLE on the road last year and ND is a tough place to play (even with a new system and new QB)  I think this will be a close game but Tate Forcier can not duplicate his late game heroics of last season and Michigan loses 30-28 to even their record at 1-1.  The following 2 games are ego boosting games against Umass and Bowling Green, Michigan handles both easily with a combined score of 90-38 and Denard Robinson gets a lot of mop up duty to gain experience.  Michigan is now 3-1 heading into conference play.  I am not predicting the Indiana game to be as close as last year.  Michigan leads at half 17-7 and pulls away in the second half to a 37-24 victory to open the Big 10 schedule.  Sitting at 4-1 Michigan hits the tough part of the schedule with games against Mich. St., Iowa and Penn State.  I see Michigan losing all 3 with scores of 38-35, 24-17 and 21-20.  I think that we can beat Lil Sparty, but am not going to call it a lock.  This will even up their record at 4-4 and we have a much needed lull in the schedule with games against Illinois and Purdue.  Michigan should win easily at home against Illinois and become bowl elidgible with a win at Purdue.  Season record is now 6-4.  I dont see Meech beating Wisconsin at home or Ohio State in Columbus.  Add that all up and Meech becomes bowl elidgible for the first time in three years with a 6-6 record.  If the defense comes together and everything goes Michigan's way, I can see them beating either Notre Dame, Lil Sparty or Penn State, but not all three.  If they could manage 2 more wins from those 3 teams, their record would then be 8-4, but I am not expecting the defense to be that improved until 2011.  I think a bowl game and win will keep RR around until 2011 when Meech will begin it's comeback to prominance with a team full of sophomores and juniors instead of freshman and sophomores. What does the rest of Michigan nation think?
