Great post, would read again.
How? 4 very winnable non conference games. A Big 10 that is down this year from last, 2 Qb's who fit a system that allowed App. St. to level the playing field at the Big House. A system that allowed West Virginia to go from 3 wins to 9 with 2 and 3 star talent...are u aware that this past offseason Michigan signed more 4-5 star talent than RRod had total in his 7 years at WVU?
Forcier and Robinson are playing a position at a school that has produced more NFL Qb starts since 1988 than any NCAA team. Top 5 in producing NFL talent for the last 13 years.2 Heisman's since 1991.3 NFL Superbowl MVP's since 1997.
QB U...hello, have you heard about it.
Lets compare some other freshman Qb's at a few of the schools who have walked away with the BCS trophy since it's inception.Vince Young, great college Qb his last 2 years,so so NFL.Name another NFL starting Qb from Texas in the last 20 years.Colt McCoy same, Troy Smith, Ohio St., how many starts from Buckeye Qb's in the NFL in the past 20 years? Bradford. How many from Oklahoma in the NFL in the last 20 years.
The probability of Michigan producing an NFL caliber Qb as compared to most teams in the NCAA is appreciably higher than the norm.
Tom Brady anyone?
The play of last years Michigan Qb's, Threet and Sheridan, is not the norm for the team from Ann Arbor and has been corrected with the recruitment of Forcier and D Rob, a California, Florida combo of talent, both in the air and on the ground.
The elusive,polished,strong armed,and accurate Forcier, combined with the dynamic,determined, and Bolt-like speed of D Rob, are soon to be unveiled at the Big House this Sept. 5th 2009.
13-0...Yea it can happen.
13-0 is a possibility
0-12 is a possibility
1-11 is a...I am being redundant
I am optimistic too, but we have had plenty of more talented, more experienced teams who didn't go undefeated. Why set yourself up for disappointment over ridiculously high expectations?
For example, I could expect to win the lottery every time I buy a ticket, but would that really be good for my soul when logically there is very little reason to believe that will actually happen?
Lets set our sights for a more reasonable 8-4 and be pleasantly surprised if we do better.
1. Win all 12 scheduled game.
2. Go to bowl game.
3. Win bowl game
Fuck deductive reasoning and objective analysis.
I want to plus you again.

God damn you are higher than me right now
no 13-0 without 1-0 The horizon can wait a while. It's time for this again I think:
God I am so ready for a game
... THE_KNOWLEDGE is wrong? Do you really think we can beat Delaware State?
getting a weird sense of Deja vu :)
You could pretty much say that any scenario in life is possible, but that doesn't mean that it is likely.
