"It's not about last year or who's here or who's isn't here," says your head coach. "It's about getting out here and competing and seeing who is here, and that's where we're gonna go."
Welcome bloggers to the second installment of a new regular MGoFeature, and the only one that gives you free stuff. Usually it'll be something from the MGoStore; occasionally someone will donate or sponsor a different item. It works like thusly:
This Week's Game:
The Michigan State Dorm Vikings, presented by Capital One vs. the Michigan Wolverines: 2012 football edition.
This Week's Prize:
Let's be honest, you're a ground man. The things in life you appreciate are the crunch of a pulling guard, a well-orchestrated veer, a perfectly executed ISO that gets five yards; let's get up and do it again. You have outgrown and abandoned such boyish pursuits as squirtguns, LEGOs, and long bombs to Devin Gardner, and prefer instead a leisurely Saturday of Denard breaking ankles, Lewan breaking donkeys, and Rawls breaking everything. Do not feel ashamed, for there are other men like you out there, identifiable only by their firm nods, their set jaws, and their MANBALL t-shirts. Join us, friend of the running game.
GUESS MICHIGAN'S TOTAL RUSHING YARDS ON SATURDAY
If you're going to be around Ann Arbor at, oh, 7:30 p.m. on Friday, November 16, we also have two free tickets to the premier of PERSEVERANCE-The Story of Billy Taylor.
For those who don't know their MANBALL history, "Touchdown" Billy Taylor was an All-American running back who broke Michigan's career rushing record (and ended second to Harmon in TDs) while playing for the early Bo teams. Personal tragedies sparked a downward spiral that ruined his pro career and sent him through 25 years of hell. Then he got back up. If you go to the event you'll get to meet Taylor and several other Michigan luminaries. Note: whether you've got our tickets or just wanna go, make sure you get to the Michigan Theater at least a half-hour early or risk losing the seat.
Closest to the pin wins (tie goes to the over).
Notes: If you win the shirt and prefer another shirt, that's cool; pick an MGoShirt.
Rules: One entry per user. First user to choose a set of scores wins, determined by the timestamp of your entry (for my ease I prefer if you don't post it as a reply to another person's score--if you do it won't help or hurt you). If nobody gets the score, this week's prize carries over to the following week's. Deadline for entries is 24 hours before the start of the game (since I won't have time to pull them on gamedays). MGoEmployees and Moderators--anyone else with moderator priveleges--are exempt from winning (because you could change your timestamp). If you choose the score that Brian published in the official preview and it actually ends up the final score, well, that would be pretty amazing because Brian picks scores like 29-11 all the time.

21-10. this will be a defensive slugfest, because lets face it, msu's offense sucks but their defense knows how to contain denard. the game will be close until the last 5 mins when we pull out of reach with a 3rd td on the day. msu just can't put points on the board, and if maxwell can't perform at home against a shitty iowa team, how do you think he'll do on the road in an extremely hostile environment against a team hungry to give msu an ass kicking? jake ryan will make maxwell's life a living hell on saturday.
