On Michigan State and Michigan Saturday...

- I think Michigan is a work in progress, obviously. Normally, I defend Denard Robinson's passing. Not Saturday. It was awful. If he doesn't start throwing the ball more accurately, the Wolverines will not beat any of the big boys on their schedule. In fact, with that defense, they will get waxed. He has good receivers, too. That's not an issue.

- Michigan State's problems start upfront, both offensively and defensively. I can see some potential for the defensive line, but the offensive line has been brutal. Not sure Mark Dantonio will find an answer for that one. It's the type of thing that can turn a 10-2 or 9-3 team into a 8-4 or 7-5 team.

- The San Diego State game this Saturday will be difficult for Michigan to win. That defense will be tested severely by QB Ryan Lindley and RB Ronnie Hillman. Don't let the tight games San Diego State has played to this point fool you. The early start should help Michigan, though. All San Diego State's games otherwise are late starts.
No reason it should end with the Detroit Tigers winning the AL Central. My column in Sunday's Oakland Press http://bit.ly/nnx36K

It loked like the old Denard instead of him evolving. Great points about Michigan. The defense is suspect and will be tested against San Diego State.
