ANALYSIS:

This is a 10* GOY play on the Michigan Wolverines.
 
The Irish won 10 games last year, including three wins against ranked teams (USC, NC State and LSU). Most of their success came because of their power running game, with Josh Adams running behind a stacked offensive line. Adams is gone, as are Quenton Nelson and Mike McGlinchey. They will need Brandon Wimbush to step up this season, and he draws a tough assignment in Week 1. Michigan's defense ranked #1 in the nation against the pass last season, and #3 overall in total defense. They bring back almost everybody, and this should be the most talented squad that Harbaugh has had in Ann Arbor. An upgrade at quarterback might make Michigan a true playoff contender. Shea Patterson threw for 2,259 yards and 17 TDs in just seven starts for Ole Miss last season. He's easily the most talented quarterback that Harbaugh has had to work with since returning to the college game. I think this is a case of Michigan being the better team, with a better defense, a better quarterback, a better coach and superior talent. Needless to say, I am expecting it to be a blowout. Something similar to when the Irish lost 41-8 at Miami last year.
 
Take MICH.
