Lee Corso just predicted 5 wins for michigan, saying we have a tough schedule. Kirk and Desomnd both agreed on 8 wins.
Everyone needs to give Corso an extremely hard time now on Septemer 10th.
Mike Lantry, 1972
Not so fast my friend.
I also predict 5 wins. Then they'll win at least 3 more to close out the season.
Attention Whore Says Something For Attention
(Corso, I mean... not you)
...........then puts on closest mascot head. In other news, Bozo the Clown predicts 32-0 season for Michigan football, then realizes they only play 12 games.
He must be thinking about the number of wins he had in his last year at Indiana, when he was fired.
What's up with that? Lee must still think RR is coaching M
You need one.
I would agree if that was actually funny
I've said this before -- Corso is the jester on that show. If he's said anything truly original and insightful in the last ten years, I've missed it. In a way, he's Dick Vitale Lite.
when Larry Reid threw the ball out of bounds to stop the clock and it hit Corso in the head thus setting up Wangler to Carter. He's never been the same since.
Exactly. I was thinking the same thing. God, that was hilarious even then -- it is even better in retrospect.
For those of you who need a reminder of Corso impersonating a football coach for Indiana, please review 0:37 to 0:41 of the following: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEF6edfexco
He looks like red popsicle in bellbottoms and sneakers....
How I long for the comeback of Ufer's Touchdown Horn. I feel fortunate to have been a kid during the Ufer era and getting to listen to him on fall Saturdays.
im calling 6 wins...but one of them will b against osu.
as Matt Millen, saying MSU is a dark horse for the National Title.
Seriously, Matt Millen said that? I can't believe we still live in a world where Matt Millen is paid to give his football opinion.
I love how the networks keep assigning Millen to cover Michigan sporting events. Yes, let's assign the one guy everyone in the state agrees has no credibility to cover local football.
Does it believe in O-lines either.
He is just trying to be different, the guy is a clown.
No no no...he WAS telling us how many wins HE averaged per year when he coached at Indiana. Oh, wait, my bad that was 4 wins per year. Ouch.
Ok I feel better about his evaluation now.
Were you going for a Jay and Silent Bob reference?
it was worse than we thought. Get better soon, Coach.
If there were a sabermetric for announcer I like the most and respect the least, Lee Corso would be off the charts.
He predicted LSU to go undefeated
Got to get on whatever that guy is rolling on.
5 wins for Auburn
That might be possible.
We may actually win ten then.
...because we don't have a stoooopid mascot head to stick on his cranium if/when he actually predicts us to win. Maybe this is DB's secret reason for his pro mascot leanings.
supposed to wear before the notre dame vs. michigan game? i mean after we destroy western and notre dame loses to USF maybe he can wear the winged helmet
he put on the Michigan winged helmet. Personally, I hope he doesn't even consider picking Michigan to win.
Ya, I'm hoping that he'll be sporting some leprechaun attire on September 10.
In fact, I'm hoping the entire nation thinks they are going to win that game.
Nothing like playing a team that beat you two years in a row, on the road, at night, and having all the pressure on you.
I want the Irish to come to town flying high...and leave in a body bag (not literally of course).
is bitter at Anthony Carter still
1979 against Indiana. We gipped him out of a tie and he hasn't gotten over it yet.
Who cares? Bulletin board material and considering no one has seen this team play a game under the new system I think it is not a good thing to be throwing out predictions one way or another.
that a baby could do a better job than Lee? He does bring a little swag with the game predictions. And it's funny to listen to him talk because he is like stated all over the board "losing it".
Is essentially that weird kid who just want's to be one of the cool guys, so he does crap that makes him look like an idiot (hence the mascot heads) because the others tell him too, thinking it will be his "ticket in" but it's not. And then he tries to sound cool like the others, but ends up saying something retarded
Ever since he did that creepy old guy at hooters comercial, I find it very hard to take him seriously
Poor man's Dick Vitale
Take it easy on Lee guys. Not everyone is going to pick Michigan as well as we are, we are fans and biased. I find him entertaining. He may not be the most accurate game picker out there, but he isn't annoying.
Opposing views are not "flamebait". God, I hate this comment moderation system.
The people abusing the system.
Not as awesome as this guy:
Also, suck it Miami.
Corso doesn't know shit about our roster and doesn't follow any program closely (maybe he still pays attention to FSU and Indiana). He doesn't research his picks or provide any real justification for them. He's a cartoon character who waits until things happen and then is entertaining about it.
What I don't get is Desmond's prediction. All he's done is rave about how great Brady Hoke is, how much better shape the program is in. Add in that we will be better at virtually every single position on the field next year, and yet he thinks this will all result in one extra win. One more win than a guy who "needed" to get fired. And that is with a much easier schedule than a season ago. I don't understand the disconnect between what he (and many others) say and what they seem to think will happen this year.
Luckily, Desmond (and Kirk) don't know shit. This team is as talented and experienced as any in the conference. People just don't see it because the leap happened all at once (since we played so many young guys the last few years).
I hope you're right, but a lot of people bitched about these guys suggesting 5-6 wins when RR climbed aboard. To assume 8 wins this year is not really lowballing anything. Temper those ambitions, or you may be disappointed...
Every team is as good as the players on that team (and age/experience play a huge role in how good the players are). A team with 20+ returning starters, All-Americans anchoring both lines, a returning All-American at QB, and not a freshman to be found in the starting lineup has pretty damn good players, and certainly isn't a 5 win team. According to Desmond (and virtually everyone else) this team could've/should've won 8 games last year and would have if a guy like Hoke was in charge. Hell, people were on this board yesterday talking about how the 2008 team could've/should've won 7 games if only Rodriguez had called different plays on offense.
To think things like that, and then assume the team won't get loads (or any) better when they lose virtually no production to graduation and have so many talented young guys who are still on the steep part of the learning curve (Roh, Campbell, Lewan, Demens, and even Denard) is either crazy, uninformed, dumb, or just reflects a warped sense of values.
