Michigan's historic B1G arch-rivals Rutger comes to town 3-0. Battle of 3 and 0's. If Jim Harbaugh loses this one, he might as well kill himself.

hopefully we get to see a little bit more of Donovan Edwards this week. I really like the little glimpses we've got to see of him. He's got tons of star potential. Michigan has the best RB room it's had in ages.

3 great backs.  I like how they are all getting touches.

yeah I love this RB room and as ridiculous as it's been with the emergence of Corum- they would've had Zach Charbonnet in 2021 if Harbaugh had gotten him carries last year and tried to keep him happy. Kinda insane.

Corum and Edwards have that extra gear to pop one for 60 yards. Haskins doesn't have that- but he's just a physical, punishing runner who has great initial burst 0-60 through the hole. If Haskins had the top end speed he'd be insane because he's just a physical, punishing runner.

Rutgers took Michigan into triple over-time in what mercifully turned out to be Michigan’s last game of 2020.  I’m sure that will translate into some confidence and motivation for the Scarlet Knights.

What’s the purpose of repeating this? As a sort of dismissive disclaimer?

At some point Michigan will suffer a loss this season. Whether the first loss will be an opponent the Wolverines shouldn’t lose to or an evenly matched rival, Michigan’s voluminous social media followings (twitters) will overreact with outcries of betrayal and the digressive fan blogs (MGOBlue) will overanalyze what “losing to ______ means for Harbaugh’s future at UM.”

Rinse/Repeat.

Relax Michigan. Yes (sigh), losing to Ohio State every year has gotten pretty numbing, but you have more to play for than 90% of the rest of college football. It’s like driving a mostly paid-off but older Cadillac Escalade around in California’s larger cities. Yes (sigh), it’s not the few gleaming G Wagons resting in the reserved valet spots at the Hilton Grand Vacations, but do you see those moldy tents on the surrounding sidewalks? There lives the commuter schools you pay for a cupcake. The UConns, the Middle Tennessees, the directional schools. Oh look, there’s more tents along the perimeter of the Doubletree where you’re staying the night.

Anyways, Michigan at #19 and Michigan State at #20 are under ranked going into this next week. Should at least be ahead of #17 Coastal Carolina, #15 BYU, and #14 Iowa State.

Edwards is one of those long stride guys that moves a lot faster than it looks like he is

yeah, he's definitely very fast but doesn't look it because it's a long stride and so effortless. Edwards is going to be a beast once he adds 10-15 pounds of muscle and builds up his upper & lower body.

Hutchinson keeps this up all season, he's going to play himself into a top 5-10 pick range.

I saw that Mich was favored by 18 which surprised me.

Both teams are 3-0.  All non-conference games.  Rutgers has beat an AAC team,  Temple,  something like 63-14 and beat an ACC team Sryacuse.  Mich has blown out 2 MAC teams and a PAC Washington team.  Thats about the same to me.

Plus it was already mentioned that MIch-Rut played to triple OT last year and Rutgers actually finished with very similar record to Mich last year.

So what am I missing?  Why is Mich favored by 18?
