I'll be in attendance for this one, likely following the tigers game on the radio if I can.

I think Michigan will win. Northwestern will get some points through the air, but their defense shouldn't be able to stop denard and company.

The more and more I look on the interwebz the more and more I feel in the minority thinking this game is a toss-up. In fact I feel the only game from here out that we should be favored in is Purdue. So I guess as much as I've liked the D so far, I'm still skeptical on it.

It's certainly fine to be skeptical about the defense or the team overall after the last two years. However, unlike in the past, this team is shutting down the bad teams. There are no indianas or umasses this year, so I think it's fair to say the defense has improved to be at least somewhat competent. They don't need to be great on defense to be favored in the majority of their remaining games. The conference is down this year, so that helps. I think at this point I would peg them for 9-10 wins. If they win the next two games, it's time to start considering an undefeated run to the BT champ game. Crazy.

If rr was still running this team I'd be 100% with you. Like Shelton said, with this coaching staff they are beating teams they are supposed to beat. Northwestern will come out and put some points up early but I think UM will win by a few scores. Ill be at this one so Im hoping Denard puts on a show.

I'd like to be more confident about the defense, especially after the past couple of games, but I still have visions of Notre Dame doing whatever they wanted in my head. UM kind of reminds me of the Lions. They can look completely clueless defensively early but then somehow shut things down later in the game. I'm expecting the same performance today but I'm not sure it will be enough.

Just like your feeling on the SDSU game? I think you've been watching too much television to have a respectable opinion on the team.

Another big win for UM.

This would be a big win for the program. Competent B1G team on the road. I hope they run some more Gardner packages.

Some info pulled from Twitter.

Cox and Marvin Robinson not dressing tonight. Cam Gordon is going to dress.

Barnum did not make the trip. Scholfield will start at LG again.

I did not know that Robinson was injured, also hoping that Cam looks better at LB than safety from last year. He could be a huge weapon there.
