    The only thing I can think of is everyone laughing at that DetNews guy and his “bold predictions” for MSU this year which included something about Lewerke

    Just had a go-to with Mark Emmert. He’s requested I travel to Indy for an in-person meeting to discuss these matters. I’m heading that way now.

    IDK, I kind of think we should give Lewerke a pass and let him start another 12 games.

    MSU returns a very underrated defense in 2019, so in theory, Lewerke won’t have to light up the scoreboard if he can manage the game.

    With that said, MSU’s offense was god awful last year.

    Alabama led the country in scoring defense in 2018 at 11.9 PPG. In the five games MSU played after 11/1, MSU averaged 11 per game in scoring defense but still went 2-3.

    You might have been the only team in the country to lose multiple games when an opponent scored single digits.

    Objectively, this “should” be the best offense Michigan has put together in a long time.

    The OL is the most experienced unit in the Big Ten. Collins/Black/Peoples-Jones are a great group of WRs. Shea Patterson is a decent QB.

    RB is a question, but the rest of their offense is solid.

    I also give Michigan the benefit of doubt on defense because they have been consistently good under Brown.

    Teams with a returning starter at QB are always given the benefit of the doubt in the pre-season. We have some big question marks at RB, but the rest of the offense SHOULD be better this year, however we'll see how year 1 in a brand new scheme looks, and we'll see what happens at the first sign of adversity since this is the first year Jim will be hands-off on the offense.

    The defense has to replace a ton, and I think we're going to be a lot weaker up the middle considering our lack of depth at DT and losing Devin Bush. Brown has shown the ability to do more with less, but it will be an interesting year on that side of the ball, we're relying on a lot of guys to be ready who haven't played much.

    We're going to need to be able to win a shootout this year.

    I think most Michigan fans are kind of indifferent on him. Showed flashes as a freshman but hadn’t really gotten much better in the subsequent years. Last year he was clearly behind Higdon and didn’t do a whole lot. It would be nice to have the experience back, Ah well. Just puts more pressure on Charbonnet/Turner.

    And to be honest, our WR’s are by far our biggest strength. I am all for using them more if there is questions at RB.

    Eh, he would have been experienced depth but no more. More useful as a slot-type guy than a ball carrier, and we have some options there.
