The Verdict... the Michigan Wolverines have the luxury of playing a somewhat easier schedule than the other major National Championship contenders in 2007, although it is not an easy schedule by any stretch of the imagination. Ranked as the fifteenth toughest schedule in college football by Sports Illustrated, Michigan is fortunate enough to play a majority of their toughest matchups in Ann Arbor, where they play Oregon, Notre Dame, Penn State, and Ohio State. Their toughest test will come during a two week stretch in early November, where they play Michigan State and Wisconsin on the road back to back before returning home to play Ohio State in their regular season finale. As stated previously, Michigan may have the three of the top offensive weapons in college football this season, though depth may become an issue if the injury bug strikes again. Freshman recruit Vince Helmuth may be called on to replace Grady as the starting fullback, although an answer from the bench may be forthcoming instead. If Michigan can remain healthy, they should have the talent to overcome a system that gave a shot (and the eventual championship) to Florida instead of the Wolverines.
Prediction... the Michigan Wolverines will go 12-0, escaping a close call against upstart Minnesota at home and Wisconsin on the road, capturing the Big-Ten Championship and a spot in the BCS Championship game.
