Certainly, Michigan has a media propaganda hype machine that is hard to match. Each year is touted as THE year for the Maize and Blue. But since their 1997 half of a national championship, the Wolverines have been more hat and fewer cattle. However, their loss at Penn State at last week’s White Out was actually encouraging. Michigan had the NCAA Football betting payout and significantly outgained the Nittany Lions. Quarterback Shea Patterson and the offense had their best performance of the season. Notre Dame will be visiting Michigan after two weeks of rest and preparation.
