Rich Rodriguez says Michigan football team can win '9 or 10' games this season
The Michigan football team should win nine or 10 games this season, ex-coach Rich Rodriguez says.
Rodriguez, speaking in his new role as an analyst for CBS Sports, said in an interview with Jason Horowitz that the Big Ten Conference is a wide-open race and he named Ohio State, Iowa, Michigan, Michigan State and Nebraska as the prime contenders.
"I’m biased," said Rodriguez, who was fired in January after three seasons at Michigan and replaced by Brady Hoke. "I think they can do very well. They got 19 returning starters, player of year in the league returning in Denard Robinson, eight home games, first five at home, so I think they are going to win nine or 10 games."
