Klatt: Michigan will beat either Michigan State or Ohio State
Joel Klatt is chugging the Michigan Kool-Aid.
The Fox Sports college football analyst went on Colin Cowherd’s radio show Wednesday and confessed his love of the Wolverines to the world. He said a month ago that Michigan would be a top-10 team in the first three years of the Jim Harbaugh era. Cowherd didn’t believe that.
But he did believe what Klatt said about the No. 22 Wolverines on Wednesday.
“It’s happening. It’s happening before our eyes. It could happen this year,” Klatt said on Wednesday. “They’re gonna beat Michigan State or Ohio State, and depending on what they do in those other games, they’ll be in the top 10 this year.
“They’re good. Michigan is really good.”
The Wolverine defense, which has allowed seven points since the first quarter against Oregon State, is one of the reasons Klatt believes they’ll be able to handle the nation’s best. He also cited the coaching job to turn around the “pedestrian” Jake Rudock.
Klatt did say last week that Michigan State had the overall program and coach in the country. He, however, thinks the Spartans could be primed for an upset against their in-state rivals when they square off on Oct. 17.
Michigan will look to get off to a 1-0 start to B1G play when it travels to take on Maryland on Saturday night.
