Fithian’s Fab Five 7-10-11

Biggest key for the Tigers in the 2nd half? Max Scherzer. Tigers need a legit number two starter or they aren’t going anywhere. Scherzer pitched in the 2nd half last year like legit number two pitcher and at times he even looked like an ace. If Scherzer pitches like he did last year the Tigers will win the Central Division. I think he will and I think the Tigers will win the Central.

How good or bad are the Tigers? The Tigers are an above average team in an average division.

Should UM fans be worried that Denard Robinson is practicing taking snaps under center?

No. The biggest misconception with UM fans is that last years offense is good enough to win against good teams.

Go back and look at the tough games UM lost. The UM offense wasn’t quite the point-a-minute offense in those games against the teams that, were in the end, good teams. Plus, Denard Robisnon was knocked out of almost every game at some point for a bit.

Hard to imagine but SI swimsuit model Kate Upton was in high school a year or two ago.

I couldn’t imagine having a high school class with Upton in it.

With July rapidly approaching mid-month it’s time to start counting down when the NFL pre season games start. Hall of Fame game is set for Sunday August the 7th. That’s less than 30 days.
