Michigan vs. Alabama

Greetings! Writing this via a borrowed iPad, so please forgive the brevity... Let's take a look at the big game tonight in Dallas in short thoughts...

  • Denard Robinson is the best player on either team.
  • Alabama has at least 8 of the next 10 best players.
  • Fitzgerald Toussaint is suspended for Michigan, and without a ground game, the pressure increases on shoelace.
  • I believe the single biggest mismatch tonight is the Alabama offensive line agains the Michigan defensive line. Bama is the best in the country with that unit and Michigan is severely undermanned.
  • Alabama loses a ton of NFL talent on defense.... And still has an elite unit.
  • I don't think Denard can win this game alone.... But for Michigan to win, he may have to.
  • If there's an additional x-factor for Michigan, keep an eye on Roy Roundtree who is coming off a rough 2011 after his breakout 2010. 
  • Nick Saban is the best coach in the country.
  • It wouldn't shock me if Michigan won the game outright but it would certainly surprise me.
  • I like Michigan +13.5.
  • Alabama 30, Michigan 23
Enjoy! And Go Blue....
