#1 michigan wolverines

While it pains me to put the wolverines ahead of my Buckeyes I can’t help but do so. A solid veteran QB back, a veteran RB that simply does not know how to fumble and other key guys back for a 4th year in hopes of getting a win over Ohio State (and a bowl win) this michigan team is loaded for bear. And not some juvenile black in the hills of the UP but some monster Kodiak that eats Buicks.

Adding to this pressure is the fact that this should be Lloyd Carr’s last season as coach. Win it all and he leaves on a high like some drug addled dream. Lose to OSU and the bowl game, again and get shown the door. This team is tough and they really need to win.

Prediction: 11-1 (1-7)

Worst Case: 9-3 (3-5)
Lose to a hot Penn State squad and to OSU – again – and michigan sees a very dark year where most Div I teams would kill for a 9-3 record.

Best Case: 12-0 (8-0)
Lloyd gets the win against Ohio State and a National Championship berth only to lose to USC 49-24 leaving the coach to leave on a down note but a winning record against OSU ( Carr is currently 6-6, 5-1 vs. Cooper and 1-5 vs. Tressle)
