Michigan: A sleeping giant?

Could this finally be year? If it's not, then maybe things were never meant to be. Michigan comes into State College riding a nine-game winning streak in its series with Penn State. But there doesn't seem a way the Wolverines can pull off No. 10. For one, Michigan isn't very good this year. And two, Penn State is. Joe Paterno, however, is warning against the Wolverines. Odd as it may sound, Michigan is a trap game this year, sandwiched in between an emotional road win over Wisconsin and a date in Ohio State looming next Saturday.

It says here the Lions have nothing to worry about. Expect an avalanche of frustration to be dealt to the Wolverines.
