    Rodriguez is a bad man, no where near as honorable a D'Antonio. Imagine the uproar there would have been if Mouton beat a fellow student, causing head injuries, and broke the jaw of another one. Hypocrisy at its finest.

    :pound: I knew that was comin'.

    The difference is Dantonio took on MSU as an almost total rebuild and DickRod got one of the greatest programs in the land dumped in his lap, including a huge line of credit to help him payoff his alma mater after he boned them :sssh:

    Michigans D-Line is a little suspect. And in the tradition of Michigan Football we have that 1-Cornerback that couldn't cover my grandmother who walks with a walker, Cissokko is A-W-F-U-L!!! He alone will cost us a game or two or three this season. That said, we should finish no lower than 3rd in the Big-10 this season, Big-10 title next year baby!!!

    D is not suspect, it sucks. I will give credit to GRob for making half time adjustments that some what compensated for the terrible 1st halves in the ND and EMU game. They just don't have the horses to run the defense effectively. Ezeh has shown nothing at LB and the defensive line is a little light in the pants. RRod needs to get some big lineman in 2011. 2010 recruiting is pretty much over.

    Let's see what this team is made of when they take the show on the road to EL. With the right talent I think RRod is a better coach than D'Antonio and pretty much any one else in the Big 10 not named Tressel. JoPa wins because he is stacked w/ talent.

    I am still sticking to my 7-5 prediction until I see this team play on the road in front of a hostile crowd. They can do pretty bad in the MSU, Iowa, Wisc, PSU and OSU stretch.

    Nemo, you must be dreaming. OSU D looks very good. I think we can take Wisconsin, but the rest of the games will be tough.

    I see a loss to Penn State. Maybe MSU gives us the blues again. I see at least a 9-3 record with the schedule as is. However...if we roll into the PennState Game at 7-0, then I'm buying tickets to the National championship game...wherever it may be. Cause We'll be there playin for all the marbles.:stirthepot:

    Here what I see for the remaining schedule:

    vs. Indiana - W (4-0)
    @ MSU - L (4-1). This game is a push, I am giving it to the home team.
    @ Iowa - L (4-2). I don't like our chances in a night game.
    vs. Delaware - W (5-2).
    vs. PSU - L (5-3).
    @ Ill - L (5-4).
    vs. Purdue - W (6-4).
    @ Wisc - W (7-4).
    vs. OSU - L (7-5).


    The Iowa, MSU and Illinois are swing games that can go either way IMO. It is easy to see Michigan lose all the Big 10 road games and ones at home vs. OSU/PSU. It is also possible they win 3 of 4, but very difficult. That's why I am predicting they go 1-4. 2-4 and I will be happy.

    They don't have enough depth, experience and talent to have even a sniff at the NC. I will be happy if they are a tough out in the Big 10. They are a few recruiting classes away from having a good D. NC contention prediction is 2011-2012 timeframe.

    I agree. 7-5 is very realistic for this team. Gets 'em a crappy bowl game, which is better than sitting at home.

    I think if UM got Kelly as HC instead of RRod, the Big 10 would be shakin in their boots. That man can flat out coach. He literally makes chicken salad out of chicken $$it.

    This thread isn't the same since Darth left the forum.

    I think we can do better than 7-5. We will beat MSU. I think 8-4 is a good season for this team. Defense is the big question mark,
