remember watching Franks a couple years back in that Army bowl game. Big time arm, great size but looked about as raw as it gets. Not sure Doug Nussmeir is the guy to coach him up. That dude was a disaster as OC at Michigan. All the QB's seemed to regress under him. Don Brown is not a good DC to face for a Frosh making his first start ever while missing his top WR and RB. They don't call Brown Dr. Blitz for nothing. Just sayin'.

I didn't see where that article suggested more were coming.

I did get an email from Macelwain asking if I could suit up.

Article says RB Scarlett and WR Wells implicated and may be suspended.  The two may be the players Coach McElwain said would not travel for the Michigan game.  

I would imagine all this BS is quite the distraction.

Sounds like the additional suspensions may be in future games

The Gators will now be without 10 players for Saturday’s opener, but that number could rise. A source tells Spectrum Sports more players will be suspended in the future due to their involvement in the ongoing UFPD investigation.

Michigan is sounding focused vs. Florida's ongoing suspension drama.  So,

Michigan 31
Florida    17

I was the one thinking that Florida would roll in this one.  When the first 7 were suspended, really only one was a starter, so I still though Florida had a good shot.  Now with their starting RB and WR out, I'm willing to admit that Michigan probably has the edge now.  I still don't think it will be a blowout, but I'm willing to see it as a competitive game now.

Well, I've gotten to the bottom of that. 
The Wolverine prevails over the Gator with ease.

Ummm what? Florida was never going to roll Michigan, even at full strength.
Florida looks like they are falling apart at the seams, while Michigan seems locked in. Franks is a frosh making his first start ever on the road in Texas in a nationally televised game, without his top WR and RB, with Doug Neisemer (who literally sucks) OC'ing vs. Don Brown (who is literally awesome) DC'ing. I think this game will get ugly for Florida, and quickly.

Before the suspensions, I would have put $100 on Florida, and I think that I have made a grand total of 2 money sports bets in my life previously.

I think you are drastically underestimating the impact of losing 14 starters.  Yeah yeah....the brand new talent......blah blah blah.

A) You are assuming that the Michigan talent was worlds ahead of Florida.  It's better, but it's not THAT much better.

B) Both teams are going into an unknown environment.  When going to a neutral site, I'll take the more experienced team.

C) Michigan was good last year, no doubt, but their success was a bit of a product of their schedule.  They played exactly 5 games away from Michigan Stadium and lost three of them.  The two they won (@ Rutgers and @ MSU) had a combined record of 5-19 (really only 4-18 since one of MSU's wins was against Rutgers....).

Again, this was before the latest Florida suspensions and before they named the RS FS starting QB.  The first bout of suspensions was mostly freshmen.  It would have hurt depth, but it wasn't going to have a huge affect on the outcome of the game.  Now that more starters are suspended and the threat of future suspensions are coming, I agree that the team psyche could be shot and I no longer think that Florida has the edge it had.

So I'll stand by the original statement.  I thought Florida was going to roll Michigan.  Now?  Who knows, but I still believe it wont be a blowout.  We'll find out in a couple of days.

Michigan by 7-8 thinking JH throws to his young stable of talented WR's.Fla with new QB & wide outs is a tall order IMO

Well, Michigan has no excuse for not winning.  They are favored obviously, and now all this.

If perchance they did slip up, it would not auger well for JH.
