The only point of contention I have is that I don’t know that I agree with Michigan being the better team on paper. Justin Fields is just that at this point: one of the best in the country on paper. I think our recent recruiting wins and talent level would point in our favor, especially given your defensive departures to the league. But how that all comes together under Coach Day has yet to be seen.
I think you may be right on the money with your win loss prediction though, but at PSU will be a tough one in a white out and Notre Dame always presents a challenge for y’all. Wisconsin’s quarterback situation will likely be the deciding factor in that one. If they stick with the veteran, I like your chances. But if the freshman (Mertz) is as advertised then this game could be his coming out party.
Curious- what’s your “rational UM fan” prediction for the Buckeyes this year?
