Unbiased Picks: Notre Dame @ Michigan

Sports 2 Comments

Justin: starts with this

Daron: oh yes. I read that

Justin: A few points 1. Michigan is going to have to score and 2. This may be the game that defines Donovan Warren

Daron: true. You know what was lost in the Notre Dame Airfest against Nevada? 39 rushes for 199 yards, when adjusted for sacks

Justin: hmm, that’s impressive

Daron: yeah.  You know what isn’t lost, and is in fact, highlighted by the air fest?

Justin: Brandon Graham needs to be the animal that he can be

Daron: A 19.5 yard Average per Completion, which is ABSURD

Justin: that’s Le Effective

Daron: and, Nevada is a spread n’ shred (albeit out of different formations) team,  that ND more or less stymied,   only 158 on the ground so Mr. Forcier will need to be able to throw and Mr. Hemingway needs to prove that last week was no fluke, because no other receiver really stepped up

Justin: Yeah

Daron: after Hemingway’s five-103-2, you have Mr. Koger next at 3-32-1

Justin: On offense, I think I’m most interested to see 2 things, both in the running game: 1. What Dennard Robinson looks like against some athletes and 2. If Brandon Minor can go

Daron: Yeah, minus his big run, Robinson’s numbers are 10 for 31.

Justin: ah

Daron: it’ll be intriguing

Justin: if they try to dust off his arm a bit more

Daron: I think they have to

Justin: he proved rather ineffective

Daron: Nevada tried to get away with just the ground game, and Tenuta run blitzed them into nothingness

Justin: yeah. it was interesting to see RichRod through tons of looks out there. they showed some I  and a good deal of Ace Two TEs

Daron: well, he has two serviceable ones. Seems reasonable. I think Odoms plays a larger role, beyond his 1 catch for 6 yards

Justin: yeah

Daron: Mr. Ezeh should replicate his breakfast from last Sat, as well, What with his 8 tackles, 1.5 tfl, 1 ff, and 1brup

Justin: I think Koger will turn into a relatively important part of the offense. And that Odoms will have to get more involved. We will also find out in a hurry if the Safeties are any good

Daron: Yep. Unless you can Penn State approach it with your d-line

Justin: yes, which would be nice

Daron: which, as young as it is, I think it’ll have moments of that, and moments of “GODDAMMIT”

Justin: Brandon Graham and Brandon Herron with Mike Martin

Daron: Craigery Roh, as well, from the Herron spot

Justin: Craig Roh had a ridiculous sack against WMU

Daron: he had .5 sacks

Justin: yes

okay so your pick

Daron: You won’t like this, but I think ND, probably 30-24.

Justin: I’ll cut you in your sleep

Daron: I know this.  I think that offense is good

Justin: Michigan wins a squeaker:  63-2

Daron: Honestly, I’m giving M’s defense some decent credit by keeping them at 30

it’s an offense with some explosion to it. And yes, clearly

Justin: then we are in agreement

Daron: clearly, M 63, ND -2.  And not an earned 2, mind you. Pity two

Justin: you picked ND and Tennesee in the same week

may He show you no mercy if you pick Ohio State
