“It’s pretty obvious that they’re going to be 7-0 getting ready for that big rival game against Michigan State in East Lansing, they’ve got to go to Iowa and they’ve got to go to Ohio State,” Herbstreit said on a conference call with reporters today. “If those three games were in Ann Arbor, I might be saying something a little bit different. But I just have a hard time imagining them going on the road in those three games and winning all three of those, even two of them would be tough to do.
“I think they’re about a year away from being the team that everybody’s excited for them to be. I still think they’re still going to be one of the 10 best teams in the country.”
