I don't think they changed Les at all actually

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?
On a scale of 1-5 (low to high), what was your confidence during the preseason of Michigan beating OSU this year?
What is your level of confidence now?
My answers are 3 and 4.5

2 and 4
Practice makes perfect. Unless you're the Buckeyes. Then you have to cheat.
5 to 5
Pre- or Post-Pryor leaving? Pre, then 2, post, then 3.5, now, a 4.5.
Yep, that's Simba made out of a pineapple.
3 and 4
I went from 6 to midnight. God do I want this win this Saturday.
Research says 2.1836 and 3.8964 with a confidence interval of 8.6739%
Whatcha gonna do, little brother?
4. It was just time for us to win.
5. It's going to be a bloodbath.
2 and 4....... maybe edging to 4.5.
I just hope we're up by enough at halftime for me to relax, anything less and I'll be disappointed. I don't think we should give up a touchdown either, not to that Ohio offense!

Before or after Tressel was fired?
Before Tressel was fired/Pryor went to NFL: 1.1
After Tressel was fired/Pryor went to NFL: 3
We may not like Pryor, but its pretty obvious he made an enormous difference between OSU being a BCS team and OSU being a Pizza Bowl team the last couple of years. The whole episode demonstrates just how important he was to that team (maybe why Tressel decided to throw his career away for him.
It's all John Navarre's fault.

Preseason (post Tressel leaving/Pryor going pro): 3.5
The Bauserman Era: YES YES YES YES
When Braxton has a good game: 3.5 to 4
When Braxton doesn't have a good game: 5
Listening to the Ohio radio broadcast yesterday I noticed that their announcers were discussing his good day (which was something like 7 of 17 for 89 yards)
Braxton Miller is *not* going to like the blitz packages and high level RPS that Mattison will throw at Bollman. Without Pryor's improvisational abilities and Herron behind a once very good offensive line Ohio has become Purdue. I expect Saturday's outcome to be no different than the Purdue game...except with more emotion and desire.

I dunno... He may not be that good throwing the ball, but from what I've seen out of Braxton he's extremely hard to pin down, even when he's outnumbered in the pocket. He's going to frustrate us at least a few times, and we're going to have to play disciplined football to make sure he doesn't bust any long runs on us, or complete 3rd downs to keep drives alive.
I still think we win this one, just not sure it's going to be a Purdue-style cakewalk.
Pre-Pryor and Tressel leaving: 1.5.
Now? 3. The scars, they are deep.
I know from experience dude. If you know what I mean.
preseason 3ish, now 5. I'm feeling really good about this game. I had a similar feeling my Frosh year walking down from Mary Markley in 2003.

2.5 preseason, 3.5 now, increasing by .1 per day as Saturday nears.
I see what you did there :)
Pre-Tressel/Pryor departure: 1
Post-Tressel/Pryor departure: 3
Now: Muhahahahahaha 5
With Pryor still there, 2, after the first few games of the season, 3, after Nebraska, 4.5.
Braxton plays like shit on the road, and everyone in that stadium will be in his head come Saturday. He hasn't completed 50% of his passes since Wisconsin, and our defense will be more than ready for his dual-threat capability since we faced Martinez and Scheelhase in consecutive weeks, and Denard daily.
If you need drugs to be a good writer, you're not a good writer.
This isn't alwys won by the best team:
I was a 1.5 pre-season
Now a 3.5
I will be as nervous sitting in the stands next week as I was this week. Just hope I see more of our colours out there.
...drink...this is a terrible idea
That appears to be a letter they aren't teaching me at community college in Iowa....

And 10. I'm 200% confident in this team
So hot. Milk was a bad choice.
3, 4 after the last game
and then a 4.9 after reading the UM player interviews today,
not only do we break that streak this year, but i think we start our own period of domination against "that school in Ohio"
"Slappin' the Bass" - Matt Vogrich (maybe)
and 4.5 now
was a 3 very early... after our defensive display against Nebraska, 4.32
Tenim un nom el sap tothom. Barca, Barca, BAAARCA!
1 and 2.5
Just worried about getting over the mental hump. I firmly believe that if we could be 11-0. MSU was more physical and we just laid an egg at Iowa. We've got these douche bags at home and they're limping, but I'm still nervous about Saturday.
Hoke has been pointing to this game since day ONE. This team is going to be so jacked up you just may see a decapitation of a suckeye.
3 in the preseason 5 now.
Fielding Yost sat in this chair. See this nail? Fielding Yost hung his hat on this nail. And you're telling me we had better stuff at Miami? ...
4.9 now. All the tangibles and intangibles are in our favor for this one. Coaching. Defense. Home field, Momentum. Motivation. Denard. It's all in our favor.

- Bo Schembechler (Result: U-M 22 OSU 0)
It went from a 3 to a 5.
2.5 before 4 now. The 2.5 because I wasn't really sure what we were gonna be like as a team, and I assumed OSU would be at least a little bit better than they turned out to be.
It's at OHIOCON 4 right now.

Back in the spring (pre-firing/Pryor departure): 1.5
In August: 3

It's at a 4.75 I really think Michigan may win by 20+

Before Hoke changed the tide on the rivalry: 1.5

Selling jerseys in Ohio is a good start...
GO BLUE! MClub supports you.
Im at a dangerously high 5 right now but im enjoyin every minute of over confidence.. And just a thought but if we win i feel like we should storm the field since we never do and it would be nice to celebrate with major style
This is absolutely incredible... Never in my life have I ever seen such rational thoughts from buckeye fans.....
and I still detest each of them.
after Pryor and Tressel it went 2.5. After watching the MSU-Ohio game, 3.5. Without POsey 4.5, with Posey, Herron and Miller playing well, 4.0. With Ohio NOTHING is an absolute, except their Scumbagishness.

My stomach is churning just thinking about winning this game.... It's so sad that we have lost Sooo many to these douche bags
