My response....who cares? No way ASU can hang with Michigan on the road. ASU is solid...I've seen them play several times since they sometimes get on local TV, but they're not up to Michigan's level.

This is no different than playing those traditionally decent D1 schools as openers (teams like Southern Miss, Marshall, etc) where you get nothing for a win but lose a ton for a loss, and those teams are probably better..


Yes, but a loss to ASU would be a lot worse just because they're a lower division....rather than saying UM lost to a poor team, people could say UM lost to a D-1 AA team, which basically puts UM out of the running for a NC right then and there. I do expect them to win easily though.


Either one puts them out of the NC picture..

All Michigan has to do is look back to the 2005 Alamo Bowl to know that. And Appalachian State is probably as good or better than that Husker team was.

Eh, I think a team could have a shot if they lose 1 game early against a mid team and win from there on, especially with a tough schedule like UM's. Though I understand what you're saying...its doubtful, to say the least.

There's a reason they're in D-2 and it doesn't just have to do with the size of the school and their attendence. Think about those Marshall teams that used to dominate D-2, then they came into D-1 and they were basically nothing. Michigan is gonna rock their world.

You are right about this, and Michigan should win big, but if they don't come to play, they won't blow them off the field.

Tressel coached at Youngstown State, not Appalachian State.
