I'VE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF YOU SONNY

He has been a warrior this season. Here's hoping that he's exposed to many fewer hits in the bowl game and next season.
It's time to play everyone's favorite game: what you get for being a student-athlete.
A free pizza when your pockets are empty is an NCAA violation, but you can receive gifts from bowl reps.
It's all about the student-athlete!
Do you have a score prediction? A stat prediction? Or an obscure play prediction?
Let's hear them. I'll start.
I expect a close game and Matt Wile kicks a field goal to win 31-28. Michigan is outrushed by 100 yards. Norfleet finally takes one back.
The Rivals100 for 2015 has been released, and two Michigan commits are both in the top-10(!).
George Campbell- WR (#7)
Damien Harris - RB (#5)
Nice to see some positive recruiting news for the Wolverines.
Edit: Shaun Crawford checks in at #96 overall as well.
I was scanning the bowl match ups with the Pac-12 winner, Stanford, obviously going to the Rose this year for a New Year's Day game. That is a distinction that none of the other big names were able to claim. Here are some of the other "big" games with ranked teams and 8-4 Washington
#10 Oregon (10-2): Alamo Bowl Dec 30th
#14 ASU (10-3): Holiday Bowl Dec 30th
#17 UCLA (9-3): Sun Bowl Dec 31st
#25 USC (9-4): Las Vegas Bowl Dec 21st
Washington (8-4): Fight Hunger Bowl Dec 27th
We have 3 NYD games and the Orange Bowl in addition to the other games. Delany owns Larry Scott in this aspect for some reason.
Make no mistake the Copper/BWW Bowl is an absolute MUST win. Unlike Husker fan who was as embarrassed as Michigan to play in an Alamo bowl, a win over a 7-5 Michigan is Mecca for K-Stater.
The unthinkable almost happened in 1998 when K-State was playing in the B12 championship game with an appearance for a National Championship on the line. The voice of purple little Kansas brother was unbearable because unlike Kansas, K-Stater and Mizzou have no idea how to win with dignity. That 1998 K-state team was upset by Texas A & M as Michael Bishop could have overthrown IRAQ that day and they would be further humbled by Drew Brees in the Alamo Bowl.
This is a big game for the locals and although this will be simply a merciful end to the football season for most of you on this board for those of us living in Kansas City this could be the trail of 1,000 tears as we listen to Jeb and Clep compare Bill Snyder to Bo Schembechler through a wad of Skoal.
GOD SAVE OUR SOULS!
