Enjoy the game, MgoBloggers! May your beers flow freely and your chicken wings fall tender off the bone. In case you aren't sure whom to root for tonight, see below.
FYI: the slightly over-complicated E-Saut calculation metric for deciding who to root for when you couldn't care less.
Rank based on 'points awarded' system, considering the number of Michigan players on roster. Subtract points for players from arch-rival schools (OSU, ND, MSU). Additional points awarded for teams with ZERO arch-rival players.
2004 is the mark for gauging personal attachment to players. Point scheme as follows:
Players graduating w/n 2 years of 2004: 5 points;
w/n 3 years: 4 points;
w/n 4 years: 3 points.
w/n 5 years from 2004: 2 points.
Buck the Fuckeyes Metric:
For every player who attended OSU (graduating w/n 2 years of 2004): deduct 3 points.
Within 3 years: deduct 2 points.
Within 4+ years: deduct 1 point.
Rudy Sucks Metric:
Deduct 1 point for every Domer.
Little Brother Metric:
Deduct 1 point for every Spartan.
