PostSubject: Probably not too early to start a PSU predictions thread...   Wed Sep 21, 2016 7:46 am

But first, I wanted to express puzzlement over an article in the FREEP: "Eight Things We've Learned About Michigan So Far".

One of them, of course, dealt with the OL. It ended with: "Big Ten Play begins...and a banged-up PSU D-line will be a true litmus test".

Excuse me? What did I miss? How is a banged-up line going to test them any more than a stacked box (UCF) or healthy, huge DL (CU)
did? Didn't catch the author of that column, but it definitely left me confused.

Anyway, mine: 31-7. PSU is simply not in our class. In any phase of the game. It ought to be entertaining seeing PSU six-foot quarterback
throwing over/around the arms of our 6-6 linemen charging every play. And if (as Bo.2.0's thread purports) Lewis is back Saturday...prepare
for your career days in TFL's, Jabrill...!!!

Yours?

It was the Free Press, so I would take anything they say about Michigan football with a grain of salt.

It is interesting to me that so far PSU seems to be getting better QB play than they did from Christian Hackenburg (except for his freshman season).

I panic about every opponent so no firm prediction here, but I'll be watching intently on Saturday. I have two more games to go to, this Sat and then the following week against Wisconsin. After that I am doubtful as I will be training a new puppy.

So PSU only has one guy that is any good, Barkley, and he will get hit a lot.

Better QB play?  Maybe, Shoes, but bear in mind: if their starting QB goes down a'la CU's Liufau he will be Sorley missed; in fact, their offense will vanish without a Trace...

Barkley is the real deal so if their o-line can make a hole or two he's gone. Our D-line is pretty good but a hole or two isn't unrealistic. Especially if they're able to get a pass game going. That being said 24-20 Blue.

I'll be surprised if its that close but I'll never sneer at a win. We're still figuring out how good every team is this year. Temple beat PSU last year but lost to them this year, but is temple as good? How good is Pitt?

Our D-line against PSU's O-line would seem to be a mismatch in our favor.

PS-MichMike- you still have it!

I don't want it to be that close but the score will end up that way. PSU will get a garbage time TD to make the score look better. It won't be much of a game but the5 final score will leave those thinking it was.
