Mike Lantry, 1972
THE KNOWLEDGE has been conspicuous by his absence on these very pages after the ND game
the reasons are rather obvious
for the first time since 2010, THE KNOWLEDGE failed to soar and bask in glory. this is a most unusual event - as unusual as the highly irregular discontinuity that occurred in the space time fabric when Vincent Smith threw the interception
originally, Michigan was slated to win this game rather easily. Vincent Smith's pass was to be tipped by the charging Teo and the tipped ball directly landing in Dileo's hands for a touchdown
from that point, Michigan would grind out an easy 24-10 win
but the irregularity made Teo not react so well, and thus not get his hand on the ball - resulting in an abhorrent sequence of events that led to an underserved win for ND
medium to long time readers of these very pages know that a similar event occurred when Denard Robinson threw a pass against MSU in 2010
that was the last time THE KNOWLEDGE failed to soar
the current irregularity has also resulted in other changes, such as Nebraska beating Wisconsin (originally Nebraska was to be blown out of that game)
the original future had Michigan going 12-2 as THE KNOWLEDGE had previously stated. the only loss was to come against Nebraska in an interception-filled day for Denard
the current future is rather ominous for Michigan
as of now, Michigan is slated to finish the regular season 7-5 (without an appearance in the B1G championship game)
but what most people do not know is that when an irregularity in the space-time continuum occurs, it is always followed by another - within 10-15 Earth days of the first
thus, the second event is about to happen soon
THE KNOWLEDGE shall then reveal the final future of the Michigan season, which can be anywhere between 3-9 and 12-2
obviously, Michigan will beat Purdue this Saturday regardless of what the second event will bring
and that leads to THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE 2012.3
predict the score of the Michigan-Purdue game to be the POTW
THE KNOWLEDGE also hereby congratulates all the winners of this prestigious award from 2012.1 and 2012.2
Michigan 31 - Purdue 13
Michigan 27 - Purdue 21
eh...you're just covering your ass at this piont. "irregularity"? might as well say it was your little brother that was writing your previous posts and predictions.
didn't you claim Michigan would play in a national championship against Boise State this year or last year? Boise State?
i think you might be taking this a bit too seriously.
Michigan 38 - Purdue 17
LOL....I predict a finish anywhere between 3-9 and 12-2 for the Wolverines too. What are you going to tell us next, that long pants are indeed long?
UM 27 Purdue 20
Michigan gets 3 TDs, and Purdue gets 3 1-point safeties from the extra-point attempts; these are the irregularities that THE_KNOWLEDGE has foretold. Michigan also adds 2 field goals and a safety, while Purdue gets 3 field goals.
Afterwards, Michigan cruises to an 11-3 season, with Michigan winning the Big Ten but losing to Arizona in the Rose Bowl.
I thought this week you were going to award the Protege of the Week? Don't leave us hanging!
Indeed, wormholes will happen.
Michigan 31, Purdue 17
Michigan 9 - Purdue 7
I am three for three so far and look to continue to four for four.
and we aren't losing another game this year...
anywhere between 3-9 and 12-2 - That's a pretty bold prediction!! Are you sure you wanna go out on a limb like that?

On this occasion though it is the defense and special teams that make the difference.
A signifi9cant defensive play causing a turnover will be the spark to drive the Wolverines to a victory.
Michigan 33, Purdue 20.
Hand off to Toissaint on veer look, who hands off to Gardner headed the other way, who then passes to Denard. It works; all is restored. Michigan will go 9-3 in the regular season with a close loss to Ohio in their "superbowl" the only big-ten downfall.
Michigan ends the season at the Rose Bowl against USC and loses in 4th quarter shootout 34-30.
This week though, Michigan shakes off the rust and grinds it out on the ground. The score won't be astonishing, but Michigan controls the game from start to finish: 27 - 13
The game will remind people of the beat downs of old. UM 41-13.
Defense forces a couple turnovers and Norfleet returns his first kickoff for a TD.
A sudden supernova-black hole formation near Tattooine, causing an extreme emmittance of Gamma radiation*, WILL, in fact, cause an irregularity felt across the Universe. These things happen from time to time and throw any stability off balance; give the guy (it?!) a break people!
Michigan Wolverines 41
Purdue Boilermakers - 23
A coming out party, if you will, for the Offense. The defense, again, puts together a decent to good UFR furthering the excitement that this side of the ball will gel into something BTCG worthy...
*If Morgan Freeman and many Google searches have taught me anything, it's probably that I don't put the pieces together quite like I should.
Michigan 31 - 17 Purdue
Purdue - 23
Michaigan - 32
Purdue: 9 (3 fg's)
The M defense will not allow a TD.
UM - 27
Purdue - 6
The defense continues its impressive play and extends their streak of one TD over the last three games. Denard bounces back with a pretty good game, but Fitz and Dennis Norfleet(!) are the offensive stars of this game. Thomas Gordon and Raymon Taylor both gets INT's in back to back games.

ND's win was definitely underserved.
The knowledge -1,000,006
This shtick hasn't been cute or funny in years, and I'm pretty sure you're not the original "THE KNOWLEDGE" anyway. Don't understand why everyone still eats it up.
