BREAKING: Michigan opens as ENORMOUS favorite over Rutgers

After absolutely demolishing Penn State on Saturday, No. 4 Michigan will now shift their attention to their next opponent, Rutgers.

As expected, the Wolverines have opened as a HUGE favorite over the Scarlet Knights.

According to Caesars in Las Vegas, Michigan opened as a 37.5 point favorite over Rutgers, a spread that has since climbed to 39.

Though 39 is an enormous number when it comes to conference games, we don’t have to look back too long to see the last time Michigan played Rutgers in New Jersey. That game took place in 2016 with the Wolverines walking away with a 78-0 win.

Nation, who would you bet on in this one?

With or without Golden Tate, the 2018 Detroit Lions WERE NEVER winning the NFC North

As you know by now, Golden Tate is no longer a member of the Detroit Lions.

Earlier in the week, news broke that the Lions had traded their most consistent receiver over the past 4+ seasons to the Philadelphia Eagles for a third-round draft pick.

The move is one that has come under much scrutiny, especially from some local media members who cover the Lions for a living. Some have said the trade is a sign of the Lions front office waving the proverbial “white flag” on the season, while others have said the move would send a bad message to the rest of the players in the locker room and potentially cause them to “give up” on the season. I am not making his stuff up.

Anyone who believes either of those things is 100% clueless about NFL football and how it works. First of all, trading Tate had absolutely nothing to do with waving a white flag on the 2018 regular season. Though Tate has been the definition of consistency for the Lions since coming to the Motor City, he is not a player and will never be a player who puts the team over-the-top in terms of contending for a Super Bowl. The Lions offense has plenty of weapons and Tate, because of his age and contract situation moving forward, became expendable.
