Week 2 Odds & Reports that Countess is out for the year

The golden rule in winning or losing college football games is to take 24 hours to deal with it either way.
In a loss, you get 24 hours to sulk and be angry. In a win, 24 hours to enjoy it. Either way, you get back to work after the 24 hours is up.
For Michigan, the Alabama game is still being felt today and that is due to the report from MGoBlog that sophomore starting cornerback, Blake Countess, is out for the season with a torn knee ligament. The injury has been confirmed by Michigan this morning and Countess will get a redshirt for the season and return in the 2013 season as a sophomore.
Countess was injured early in Saturday’s loss and Alabama’s passing game seemed to open up more once he stepped off the field, though it was probably too early to tell how much impact he would have had on the game.

Odds for Week 2
Oddsmakers have released the odds for Week 2 of the season. Here are the point spreads for Michigan & MSU:
Michigan -21.5 vs. Air Force
MSU -24 at Central Michigan
Both games have a lofty spread, which is to be expected. Michigan should be looking to come out and light up the scoreboard after Saturday’s loss to Alabama and look for Michigan State to try and develop the passing game against a weak Central Michigan secondary.
Both teams are capable of covering the point spread on Saturday, but both games are also a little tricky.
Air Force has a quirky offense that can be tough to prepare for in a week and Michigan State is heading to CMU, where the game as being billed as the biggest in the school’s history at home. That environment could give the Chippewas a little boost in play.
