Ann Arbor, Michigan
It’s been a funny and entertaining week for the Michigan football program. We first heard Coach Harbaugh’s explanation of Freddy P Soft during his Monday press conference then he set the record straight later that night on his radio show saying, “I have never eaten a booger in my entire life.”
On Monday evening, Colorado announces their uniform selection for Saturday. It will be the exact same as 1994 when they won on a famous Cordell Stewart throw to Michael Westbrook beating No. 4 Michigan 27-26.
On Tuesday, Colorado released a depth chart that turned into a hilarious battle between schools on Twitter.

This turned into a back and forth exchange between the two accounts with many responses on the names in the depth chart.
Colorado has played Michigan four times with the last in 1997 winning 27-3 and this will be the biggest test for Michigan so far this year. They will also have Tom Brady in town as the honorary captain this week.
On Wednesday, Coach Neuheisel released his Freddy P Soft song on Sirius XM College Sports. Use the link below to listen!

Colorado Preview and Staff Predictions
What we know about this Colorado team is they’ve been impressive with their top 10 ranked defense only allowing 321 yards. They also have the seventh ranked offense after two games averaging 50 points per game. Their opponents of Colorado State and Idaho State have not been a true true test, but many are saying Colorado keeps it close in Ann Arbor. Our staff doesn’t think so much…
Michigan 38 – Colorado 17
Aaron, Senior Staff Writer
Michigan 42 – Colorado 21
Steve, Recruiting Analyst
Michigan 31 – Colorado 13
Syed, Staff Intern
Michigan 31 – Colorado 7
Patrick, Recruiting Writer
Michigan 41 – Colorado 10
Alex, TWD Graphics Designer
Michigan 49 – Colorado 24
Jeffrey, Writer and Video Specialist
Michigan 54 – Colorado 7
I see this game being closer than the first two but another impressive performance by our defense to keep them under 20 points. Tom Brady, 2017 recruit Dylan McCaffery and others guests in attendance will see the best overall performance so far as a team. Speight leads this offense with several contributing and more running plays. The game is closer than some think, but Michigan wins 31-17.
