Michigan in Outback bowl vs LSU or Georgia... that would put us at 3rd in the Big Ten I believe.
ESPN Bowl Projections
Michigan-LSU would be cool as shit.
We wanted Les Miles on this Old Carr, but settled for being Rich.
I had seen one that said "Why settle for LES when you can get RICH quick?"
Works for me. I'd love to see a Les Miles vs Rich Rod matchup
Let's win a few more games before we start making flight arrangements to Florida.
Tell that to the people who wrote the article, not me.
That's what the line in the subject was for. I guess I should have said, "I can't believe that ESPN is already putting out bowl predictions based off of 2 weeks of games."
Wooooo living in South Florida might pay off for once!
c'mon, "for once?" living in south florida can't be that bad!!?! lol
careful, you're lucky it's not december! ;)
This is my first year living here, so I know I'll be gloating come January when it's -10 in Sconnie (where I'm from) and it's 80 down here.
That said, it's blazing hot pretty much every day right now.
"it's blazing hot pretty much every day right now"
Florida is 3,000 miles away from the Rose Bowl, host of this year's BCS Championship game.
I am really hoping for a New Year's Day bowl. Maybe I can find a way to take the old man. That would be the coolest Christmas gift ever!
It would certainly have all the talk about Les Miles and his " damn strong football team".
Bowl projections right now are worthless. Hell, we won't even play a road game until MSU in October. We'll have a better idea after 1st half of the season is done.
If you don't like speculation based on flimsy evidence, then don't read the threads. If you do decide to read them, then don't leave comments that add nothing to the conversation at hand.
I like your in-state defensive line.
A Michigan-LSU match would be great. The Les-Miles and Michigan thing would be the main story of all the non-BCS bowl games. Also, a Michigan-Georgia match wouldn't be that bad either.
If we go to the Outback Bowl I'll have to unload my MNC tickets.
It is only 2 games into the season with 10 more to go, but how many teams in the big ten have 2 wins, and quality ones at that?
so would desmond finally be rooting for rich rod or would he be pulling for his "michigan man" les miles?
i am sure salsa boy would be behind us
It's not that unrealistic which would pretty much guarantee at least 3rd place. Maybe 2nd.
The fact that we are talking about what bowl we might play in not if we play in a bowl is pretty sweet after last year.
If the fans are able to generate the same noise at every home game, throughout the rest of the home games, any bookie who only gives UM a 3 point home field advantage is nuts.
Stop being reasonable and rational. It makes it that much harder to hate you for being a ND fan.
If you put a speaker in every other seat of the stadium (not everybody yells) and from each played a sound roughly equivalent to the yell of an excited fan, and then measured the sound level on the field, I doubt Michigan Stadium would fare well in decibles compared to other top venues. The proximity to the field, density, and reflection just don't seem to this layman to support a comparatively high noise level on the field.
I wonder what an acoustical engineer would say.
Funny, I was just thinking about this like 15 minutes ago while I was washing my kitchen floor... "Man, wouldn't it be interesting if we played LSU in our bowl game?"
These seem to be pretty spotty right now.
For instance, they have MSU in the Alamo bowl, and either Iowa or Northwestern(!!) in the Champ Sports bowl.
Yes, the team that lost to a MAC school (albeit a good MAC school), the team that had to block 2 FGs to beat a FCS school, and the team that almost lost to EMU last week.
So yeah, probably not very accurate.
I would be incredibly pumped about the Outback bowl, if true. Either Georgia or LSU would be great; Georgia has a good tradition and a great record against the Big Ten, and LSU is obviously an entertaining choice.
Plus, we could have the game we wanted for the stadium opener.
Michigan - LSU would be awesome.
