In the first Blogpoll - which seems oh-so-long-ago - I ranked Michigan #11 (the lowest preseason ranking for the Wolverines in the poll if memory serves me correctly). My reasoning for ranking them so "low" was as follows:
MICHIGAN - in a nutshell, I don't believe yet. Yes, our offense is loaded but will we be able to stop anyone? We lost our best D players and this from a unit that got absolutely embarrassed by the two really good teams it played at the end of last season. Plus, we often seem to find a way to drop an early game and our Oregon-ND-Penn State stretch looks like the place we could do that.
Yeah, well, who that early "stretch" would include App State as well.
Ed. Note: Don't know why this isn't showing my previous rankings/where people moved and/or dropped. Arrghh! Bring back the kittens.
