Michigan Thursday: A Look At The Big Ten Weekend

Today we will take a look at the Big Ten Games this weekend as it's been a slow news week for the Wolverines.

Maryland at MSU:  I expect the Spartans will have a bit of a hangover from their loss last weekend.  When you play with fire?  Still Maryland isn't very good with 2 wins this season.  The Spartans pull away in the second half.   They are a 14.5 favorite.

OSU at Illinois:  This could be an interesting game, Illinois is one of those teams that always plays the Buckeyes tough.  I don't think the Buckeyes will be upset but this game could be a little too close for comfort.  OSU -16

Purdue at Northwestern:  After this game, Northwestern is going to be 8-2 which is a pretty good record.  NW -16

Nebraska at Rutgers:  Nebraska has a bunch of momentum after beating the Top 10 Spartans last weekend.  They are trying to get to a bowl game and will win this game fairly easy if they don't roll over on the road.   Neb -9.5

Minnesota at Iowa:  It's a primetime game and could anyone have a tougher 3 game schedule then the Golden Gophers in the Big Ten (Michigan, OSU and Iowa in 3 weeks)?  This is another trophy game and watch out for an upset here.  A lot of people are talking Iowa and they might be reading how good they are.  Iowa -12.5

  • When Penn State joined the Big Ten, didn't they have a clause that gave them a bye week before the Michigan game every year?  They are off this week.  

  • FL Defensive lineman and USC commit Keyshon Camp will take an official to Michigan.

  • Michigan is really working the State of Texas and the game against Florida at Jerry World .  Take a look at this tweet. 

  • MSU had two more de-commitments yesterday.  That is 3 total for the week.

  • Ryan Glasgow has been seen a sling this week and I wouldn't expect to see him play or even travel this weekend.

In some terrible news, Chad Carr (Lloyds Grandson) does not seem to be doing well.  Yesterday, the Michigan and OSU Basketball coaches decorated the outside of his house with Christmas lights.   God bless Chad and thank you OSU coaches for understanding there are more important things then the rivalry.  #CHADTOUGH
