    I'm aware the game is in the AT&T stadium. I'm unaware how that has any bearing on Florida being favored if they win their opener against Michigan. Even if they won the game at home, it's still a better resume (which in turn sways bookmakers, bettors and wagers.)

    How did the Gators arrange to play four of their first five at home? Uh, one of those was supposed to be in Baton Rouge, remember?

    Harbaugh a better coach than McElwain. Hrrmm. I'm not willing to go that far. Hell, just last year we saw Florida demolish Iowa in their bowl game--same Iowa team Michigan lost to in the second week of November. Florida hasn't had a quarterback since Mac has been there and that looks to change this year. Michigan, while returning their QB, also loses over 30 seniors from last years squad as I recall.

    One of the reasons I like Florida in this game is attrition. I look at the Gators returning all three of their receivers, as well as their tight end, from last year. That, versus a Michigan defense who will have lost its entire secondary and two-thirds of its linebacking corps.

    Harbaugh gets a lot of love for that 2007 win over USC with very little mention of him leaving Stanford with a record that was eight games over .500.

    Half a unit, taking Florida on a line where they're getting 7.5. I only play with two a year and IF it is gone, I quit. That's how much I'm believing in Florida in this game.

    @tirk I don't get the Michigan mystique. There's just too many things that go against, well, logic here.

    2015--third place in the B1G East
    2015--third place in the B1G East
    According to the roster on 247Sports, Michigan carried 39 seniors. I've heard the number 35 re: attrition.
    Michigan had 11 drafted in the latest draft.

    Wait. Michigan had 11 drafted, more than any other school, from two teams that were good enough for third place in their own division--back-to-back years--with a ton of that talent no longer there in '17.

    Get this. UM - 7.5 probably means the ML is going to come in around +250, +280.
