Well I'm tapped out but you gents enjoy.
Good luck, Wolverines! Like I've said, college football is much better when UM is on top so I look forward to seeing you guys there. Here's to a good game, where we show the CFB world how traditional powers do it.
That is not an accurate statement at all. The people that you are saying are over confident are a small group of people.
One thing I will point out is Clemson, Penn State, and VT fans all thought there was no way Bama would win by double digits and we did.

I feel dumber for reading this thread. I'll give my prediction since I read through this whole thing. I think it will be a good game and I'm excited to face off against y'all. I don't think your offense will be able to do enough to win this game and as pointed out your d-line isn't great and we have one of the best o-lines I've seen. With that being said I think we win 31-17. JMO Anyways good luck on Saturday! RTR
Sorry, I totally agree. Sorry for calling out the fanbase as a whole. I guess I should reword that. Most of the Bama fans I have encountered are cocky.
I predict Iam going to fornicate after the game
Most? You're basing your opinion off of 3 guys who are coming to your mesage board and talking crap. Not fair man. Not fair.

There ya go! Just messin' with you guys! Simmadownnow.
Not sure that is fair either. You are basing this off of a few guys talking trash on tBB, and a few that have made their way over to here to mess with you guys. Obviously that is your sample size, but they are not representative of everyone.
As far as the game, I think that Alabama is the more talented team top to bottom, but this is a very dangerous game for us. Although we do return more experience than most realize, this unit has not played together as the starting rotation. Team chemistry and communication is a big question mark and a team like Michigan, with Denard, is the type of team that should cause some concern.
At the end of the day most feel Bama wins, just like most fans on here are calling for Michigan to win, but they expect it to be a tough game. 31-24 Bama, IMO. At the end of the day, I believe 28 points by either teams wins this one.
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
While I don't want to take anything away from Saban as I believe he is a great defensive coach, we also have one in Greg Mattison that is as good, if not better. Last season in the first few games, UM's D started out pretty shaky, but Mattison's in-game/halftime adjustments made the difference. If Michigan can keep it close in the first half, and I think they will, this game goes well into the 4th quarter before it is decided.
Bama's OL scares me (and most everybody in the country) and going against an inexperienced UM D-Line is certainly a favorable matchup for Bama on paper. This game is going to be won in the trenches. Bama's D has talent across the board, but they have some inexperience as well. This, being Game 1 for each team (signed Captain Obvious), makes things interesting. Which team will have the best chemistry and cohesion? I think that will play a factor. As others have said, having this big game early in the season is very much different than having it later in the season, once that chemistry developes.
Offensively, I think both teams do about the same in terms of putting up points. I truly think turnovers and special teams is going to detemine the winner. I have been predicting a special teams touchdown, and think it will be the deciding factor. I just can't predict which team will score it.
Non-Biased Pick: 31-24 Bama
Home Pick: 28-24 Michigan
I'm not sure why Bama fans posting scores like 34-17 is trolling. Sure, some of their attitudes are a little smug, but that is a likely outcome. We are a 14pt dog for a reason. We have big question marks on both sides of the ball. Depth is still very much an issue.
I think 24-33 Bama.
I would love to be wrong, though.
I've said it before and I'll say it again: if you're gonna play Bama, it's best to do it in the opener. Nobody hits the ground running in the first game of the season. More mistakes are made defensively in the opener, so it's a good opportunity to exploit some first game jitters/blown assignments.
Let me (seemingly) be the first to predict a Michigan win, 31-27 victory over the Tide.
27-6. You're welcome for the 6.
Those aren't the ones i consider trolling. It's the ones saying Denard will be hurt. The ones acting like Michigan is a high school football team and Bama can beat the Jets. Those Bama fans can take their crap back to BOL as far as I am concerned.
35 to 17 Bama win.
Amen, dude - those guys are JERKS. 27-6 Bama.
Not sure we could score more than 17 against the Jets.
No, not just these bama fans. (you're ok btw, I dont mind you)
Most of the ones on tBB, most of the bama fans on other sites, and most of the bama fans I see in real life.
We are college football
Go back to tBB.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
I have a lot of respect for Brady Hoke and Michigan in general, truly one of the most storied traditions in all of college football. I just think Michigan is going to need another year or two for Hoke to really create something special there. Bama has it under Saban, LSU has it under Miles, and Hoke will have it too. Denard scares me, but he can't do it alone, and Bama's O-line is just ridiculous. We'll run the ball and keep Denard on the sideline.
Bama 31, Michigan 17
Same rules as last year....team with most points wins.....that's my prediction.
No one in their right mind believes we could beat the New York Jets. Also, I doubt anyone is really hoping for a guy they've never met to get seriously hurt. Just ignore those guys.
Wouldnt it be ironic if AJ got hurt in this game and not Denard.
Our season would be over. We don't have a solid #2 right now.
