Mike Carter/US PresswireCan Michigan end Michigan State's four-game winning streak in the series?Every Thursday, Tom, Mike and Chantel will discuss three issues in and around Michigan sports. Today, they discuss some bold predictions, Wolverines about to make a leap and under-the-radar prospects.
1.) The Big Ten season is on the horizon, here's your chance to make one bold prediction regarding the Wolverines' conference schedule. What is it? Michael Rothstein: This fits with Michigan and the rest of the Big Ten, actually, but no team in the league finishes with fewer than two losses. The conference itself is mediocre from top to bottom, and frankly, Michigan might still be the best team in the league. It certainly has been tested the most. But as far as the Wolverines go, Michigan's leading tackler this season will not be Jordan Kovacs, but the guy next to him, Thomas Gordon.
Tom Van Haaren: With this conference I don't know if any prediction is really bold. Michigan has a chance, I think, to make it to the Big Ten championship game. The key will most likely be on Oct. 20 when Michigan takes on Michigan State. So my bold prediction will be that Michigan beats Michigan State at home to end the losing streak.
