The DL line is Michigan -7. I’m very curious to hear some predictions. You don’t have to be taking them in your picks to offer something up. I’m curious to see how everyone feels about this game going into it.
I’ve thought all year Michigan and Gardner were both overrated. I think they’ve shown that time and again. You may want to say that they’ve been great in the Big House, but the fucking Zips should have beaten them at the Big House. I just don’t think they’re all that scary of a team.
On the other hand, we’re anything but scary ourselves. Both teams are pretty damn beat up, and they did just play a very tough rivalry game on the road, and one that crushes their title hopes. You may be thinking letdown spot. You may also be thinking that after Nebraska needed the KelLob, though I buy that angle less.
In our backup tandem’s first real road test, we’ll need to keep the ball in AA’s hands, especially considering the 4 picks last week were nearly our undoing. That does seem to be one of Michigan’s strengths, though. They’ve been easy to throw on, but I don’t know that we can trust RKIII and TA to get it done through the air. On the other side, I have to think they’ve seen our glaring weaknesses. Hoke has proven to be a less-than-stellar scheme/in-game coach, but there is a pretty clear blueprint. I want to believe Nebraska can get it done, but I see costly mistakes on our end and sustained drives on theirs. Michigan 35 Nebraska 21.
What say you, beloved degenerates? And are you confident enough to throw it on that card?
