PAT’S THOUGHTS:

This is great bounce-back spot for Michigan. They are extremely more talented than Western Michigan. WMU just got demolished by Syracuse. Imagine what a pissed off Michigan team is going to do? I still think Michigan will be good – they just couldn’t get out of their own way vs ND. However, 75%+ of the public feels exactly like I do. As such, I am staying away.
