Football Display Case
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.

When your team is winning, be ready to be tough, because winning can make you soft. On the other hand, when your team is losing, stick by them. Keep believing. -- Bo Schembechler
...I would neg you. But I don't. So this e-tough guy e-glare will have to suffice.

7-5 and beating OSU. Michigan has to get that monkey off their back
If we somehow went 7-5 (7-1 Big Ten), beating tOSU and going to Pasadena...yeah you have to take that.
Losing to EMU, Delaware State and JIMMAH would almost be expected because 3-9, but you
a) Win the PSU/MSU/'vest trifecta, thus possibly interrupting Dantonio's monopoly on every high-school football player in the state of Michigan.
b) Actually WIN on Senior Day, and
c) Make Justin Boren regret he ever heard the phrase "Those who stay will be champions."
Then the beloved Maize and Blue, 26-point underdog to 11-1 USC (with their one loss being to Arizona--bank it), pulls off the upset in the Rose Bowl. Tell me you wouldn't try to be first in line to buy THAT season highlights DVD.
(Heh, and I was gonna vote for 9-3.)
I want both...screw it...the last thing you want after a victory over tOSU is that they have some rejoinder like..."ok, we lost but, like, you guys went 7-5 so you still suck...and you were at home...blah...blah...blah...blah"
No close game against tOSU either. Run it up. Rub their faces in it. I want us to be up like 69-0 with all the starters in and going for the two point conversion on final touchdown with seconds to go ... just ... well ... because
I think it was in the Mighty Ducks, like the Bad News Bears but with hockey where the poor sport "bad" team had the chant:
"It ain't worth winning if you can't win big!"
...I have always liked that one...and it goes double against tOSU

Since I have predicted 5-7, I would gladly take either scenario. If I had to chose, I would pick 7-5 and beat OSU. It would show significant improvement from last year. Stop a horrendous slide and since its the last game of the year, it would be the last memory for kids who were committing and enrolling early, which could help us a lot if it was between us and OSU. But now that I think about it more, entering that game 9-2 means we would have been getting a ton of great press up to that point. Shit I don't know. Either one would make me happy.
