And they also said the same thing before Utah in 2008, and they were claiming we were unstoppable before we played South Carolina in 2010 and we got our teeth kicked down our throats in both games.
It's good to look at a matchup through objective lenses.
The last time a fan of another team told me that Bama didn't have a shot and I responded with "I just hope to keep it close" was the Blackout against UGA in 2008.
It absolutely blows my mind how every team that Bama plays they think that they will not only win but they will also dominate Bama. I believe if I were a Michigan fan I would just hope they stay competitive.
I appreciate you coming over here and respectfully giving your take on the game. I would expect nothing less of a proud university like UM to think they have a chance to win this game. During the Shula years I still thought we would win every time the ball was kicked off. Now I didn't think we were better, but you can't help but think that maybe you'll get the bounces and your guys will find a way to beat the odds.
With that said, I think DR will have to get loose and make multiple big plays with his legs and we will have to make multiple mistakes( penalties, TOs, broken coverages) for UM to have a chance to win this one. I just feel like our advantage on both LOS is too great to overcome.

I firmly belive Bama will beat them. I will be there. But, I dont think it is going to be an easy game for Bama. Lots of new faces on the Defensive side and it takes time to learn this system.
I expect Bama to win this game BUT we as a fanbase are very confident....probably too confident IMO. Hoke is an outstanding coach. I expect Michigan to be legit title contenders within two years. (Depdends on QB situation after this seaosn IMO). Roll Tide and good luck to the Maize and Blue after Labor Day weekend.
They were also saying it against LSU before last years regular season game and also South Carolina and LSU the year before. All games we lost.
And I don't remember anyone saying it against AU last year and for sure don't remember it against MSU.
TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
tyrod taylor ran 4.35 and had better offensive line. Bama by 21
I was worried about our defense util I saw the spring game..
