As we inch closer and closer to the 2014 football season, this is about the time where people start to really ramp up their excitement and make predictions on what they think their team will do this year and so on. Fans of the University of Michigan football program are no exception.
I took to Twitter earlier this week to get the pulse of Wolverine nation and see what their thoughts are on Team 135.
What are your bold predictions for the upcoming football season? #GoBlue

A simple question: What are your bold predictions for this season? We received a ton of feedback and some really good stuff. This is a very polarizing team right now, so naturally predictions were all over the board. Enjoy!

@TBHReport alright, I'll bite: 9-3, two losses to rivals, Peppers is transcendent but misused, Gardner mitigates weak OL, still no run game.
