They love them some Wolverines, they are as optimistic as Browns fans talking about the 2012 draft and their 1st rounder that will finally get them to .500.Its great. They landed a couple of good Ohio State grade recruits (Strobel and Kalis) in a heads up recruiting battle with tOSU, got a new head coach and now they are convinced that all the ills of the DickRod Era are gone for good. Man it is amazing.Unfortunately for scUM Kalis and Strobel will not don the ugly helmets for another year and this year's rendition of the skunkbears is basically the same lousy set of players from last year with a new system, one that does not match their skill sets. Rodriguez finally got his people in place, just as he was getting his pink slip, and I think we all saw that his system will get him Big East championships, but it didn't fly in the B1G. So now Hoke has DickRod's undersized offense (complete with inaccurate, noodle armed running back masquerading as a QB) and 3-3-5 other side of the ball (I hesitate to call anyone that gave up 458 pts, 36ppg, a defense). This team is just not good. As I look down their schedule for 2011 I cannot see what they are so excited about.vs. WMU =winvs. ND =lossVs. EMU =winvs. SDSU =winvs. Minny =win@NW =loss@MSU =lossvs. Purdue =win@ Iowa =loss@ Illinois =lossvs. Nebraska=lossvs. tOSU =lossI see scUM at 5-7 this year, although I could see them losing to Purdue or SDSU or beating Illinois or NW. So I would say best case, 7-5... worst case 3-9.
