Postcard: Wither the weather?

After five days of nearly perfect weather here in Orlando, New Year's Eve took a soggy turn.

The weather turned cloudy and rainy on Monday. It is a substantial contrast to the last week in which temperatures rose into the mid 80s with bountiful sunshine. The rain is expected to tapper off Monday night, with clear, cool and breezy conditions for Tuesday's game.

This is interesting because Michigan spent last week talking about how it is having to adjust to the heat and humidity of Central Florida. However, it is expected to only be in the upper 60s at gametime Tuesday.

Most of the Michigan media here feels that Florida is going to roll to victory. They say the Gators spread offense and Tim Tebow's versatility are bad matchups for the Wolverines' defense. Conversely, the Florida media is of the belief that the Gators defense is so bad that no game is ever a sure win for the Gators.

After the weather breaks later Monday night, we'll finally find out.
