Ah yes the predictions are back this week, and what a week this could be for Michigan. The chance to go 5-0, beat a rival, and send Michigan State to a 1-4 start!
If you didn't know anything about football, and you saw a 4-0 team playing a 1-3 team, you would think it should be an easy game. In this case, that is wrong!
Home field advantage could play a factor, due to the lack of experience some Michigan players have on the road, including both QB's Tate "the great" Forcier and Denard "Shoelace" Robinson. However it must be remembered that Central Michigan beat the Spartans in East Lansing.
But because this is a rivalry game, and the Spartans HAVE to win, it will be difficult for the Wolverines to come away with a victory.
If I were a betting man, I'd probably take Michigan State to win. However since this is a Michigan Wolverine blog, its actually illegal to pick the other team to win....
- Michigan State will start off well, exposing UM's weak secondary. If JT Floyd starts, as I've heard he will, he could be picked on a lot at the start.
- Michigan's offense could have a great day throwing the football, MSU's secondary is possibly worse than ours!!!!
- MSU will lead at halftime before Greg Robinson's defense shore things up after the break.
- It could be a classic game, Tate Forcier will probably have to lead a game winning drive....
I'm going for Michigan-30 Michigan State-27
