NCAA College Football’s Best Game to Bet On
Jim Harbaugh is an enigma; this guy is an international man of coaching mystery and following his career is interesting to say the least. He makes the game fun and he mixes is up, but in the end, is he effective? Can and will he see glory in Michigan is the question for “Blue” fans? With the exception of last season; he wins games. Nobody can take that away from him. What can be called into question is his play calling ability and his overall decision making along with his recruiting ability. The name “Harbaugh” is a big one in football but let’s be honest, it’s nowhere near the name of a Saban, Meyer or even Dabo! Harbaugh will never have the recruiting power of an Alabama or an Ohio State. The same goes in college basketball, the big names such as Coach K and Tom Izzo, they get the blue chip players. It is what it is, and it will never change.
Western Michigan vs. Michigan
Date: Saturday, September 8
Game Time: 12:00 ET
Venue: Michigan Stadium, Ann Arbor, MI
America’s Bookie Line: Michigan -28
Last week’s Michigan loss to Notre Dame was brutal! This is a classic example of the many clunkers that Harbaugh has posted during his time at the “big house”. The offense looked out of sink and looked as if there was no real plan. Harbaugh seems to “wing it “much of the time. It’s a chip Kelly philosophy mixed with a Bob Knight attitude. The guy wants to win, a championship is a priority, but he can never seem to pull the right strings and make it happen. Will it happen this year? News flash; Harbaugh, you had better win out and you had better be prepared from game to game or your cooked!
The good news for Michigan fans: You are playing Western Michigan! WM has a boat load of offense and they can score, that’s not a problem for this team, the problem is defense. This team allowed Syracuse to put up a pounding for 560 yards and five rushing touchdowns.
Can Western Michigan fix their run defense and slow a stagnant Michigan offense? Not a chance! Not in the “big house”, for that matter; not in ten buck two! Look, the Michigan offense sputtered early against a very good Notre Dame defense which has a very good shot at seeing t a “Big Six” game in January. Harbaugh is the master at rebounding after a tough loss and it’s a guarantee that he will have his boys motivated and ready to play. Patterson will put up big numbers in this game and their will actually be a third down conversion, or two!
Harbaugh never presses, he goes about his business after a loss and corrects his mistakes, he knows how and what to adjust. The appropriate thing when thinking of this game; feel sorry for Western Michigan, they will get drilled!
At the end of the day, talent wins. Western Michigan is no match for the Wolverines. They are outgunned at nearly every position and it will show. This one will be a blow out win and will never be close. Harbaugh will redeem himself and everyone will go back to loving him again and the championship talk will pick up where it left off!
