This diary needs to be deleted. That's my thoughts.
FWIW. Michigan doesn't seem inclined to get re-involved.
This diary needs to be deleted. That's my thoughts.
Yes. My biggest fear after this post is that it won't get deleted.
and moving up.
and moving toward 20
and get rid of some of these diaries so we can at least have the bone marrow donation diary on the first page for longer than a few hours.
I don't have Brian's diary powers, or else I'd bump up the donation thread. As far as this one, meh, it's probably board material, but it's not something that should be deleted. It's definitely some possibly scenarios, especially if certain things I'm not willing to say out of a fear of a jinx happen.
it is hard to find this page now after all of the complaints.
the all in for michigan. Is that a little to close to endorseing gambling for a public U.
to vote me down.
guess I'll need to earn back some points.
Nice OSU logo
how many people voted
I'm now up to 5 points.
Can we not have at least a little bit of joy in Whoville for a few days?
"I am truly not trying to be a pessimist, but ..."
Gee, how bad does it get when you really try?
The point was for people to tell me why those scenarios were rediculous, I guess from the reaction everyone realizes they are likely.
enjoying last Saturday? Enjoy what should be an undefeated September. Enjoy Sparty's breakdown and Terrelle Pryor's inability to win games against highly ranked opponents.
And let the rest of the year play out.......because no amount of worrying or psychoanalysis will change what happens on the field.
it was one of the greatest Michigan Games ever, but you have to look ahead.
Do you seriously think we're going to lose to MSU and Wisky? Especially with how pathetic they've looked? Notre Dame is the real deal, make no mistake, and beating them says volumes about the talent, moxie, and coaching of the current UM football team. Stop blathering and get your troll ass back in the cave where it belongs.
MSU and Wisky are road games (so yes I think we could lose those) and I hear nearly the entire Wisconsin team had Swine flu... so not sure if we can judge how they have looked.
Since when does a road game = a loss? If you think we're as good as CMU (which, by the way, we're probably better) then we can quite obviously come in to MSU's house and give them a thrashing.
tougher to play at home than away.
Wouldn't that be the Badger flu?
First scenario: Objection! Speculation.
Second scenario: I object! How could this result be anything but an incredible turnaround from last season? Undefeated facing OSU after going 3-9? Nothing disappointing about that.
Third scenario: Objection! 7-5 is about what most expected this season anyway. Still a success and a likely bowl appearance.
I see no fearful scenarios here.
this board is devoted to speculating based on reasoned facts. I consider those scenarios likely at this point.
1) Last year we had no traction on offense; that is not the case this year. The wins were not flukes -- they were well-executed examples of a fine Michigan Football team. I would share your pessimism if I did not see how cohesive this team looks. Yes, they make mistakes and there were plenty of things that, if continued unabated, will eventually yield a bad result. Forcier scrambling around on the dropped throw to Savoy could have been a disaster if he went down. Our secondary got eaten alive for the most part (though, to be sure, against absolute stud receivers the likes of which we won't see until our bowl game, perhaps). Etc. But this is a TEAM and every player out there puts aside his personal ambitions for the sake of the team -- that's what counts the most! And that's one of the key ways in which Weiss was out-coached on Saturday... his teams always have talent but never seem to gel sufficiently. Anyway.... because of all that ^ the Wisco comparison, I think, is not relevant.
2) We will beat Ohio State
for the only reasoned response to my post
and going to the Rose Bowl in a year where we thought we'd be 7-5 and losing to OSU anyway.
But, are you kidding that you wouldn't have flashbacks from 2006 if we lose to OSU after being undefeated. It would be worse this year yet because OSU would be claiming their one loss team should still make the national championship (assuming USC is their only loss.
OSU looked horrid on Offense, which is how they have played BOTH games - and USC looked pretty bad themselves. I think Toledo has a legitimate chance at beating them this weekend. TP is so vain he thinks that he's the end-all for the Bucks. Sucker. He could have been RR's god of offense.
He's like Darth Maul to Tate's Skywalker. The dark side (OSU) always loses in the end.
Stop worrying and learn to love the Forcier.
How did we go from "We'll be satisfied with 8-4 and very happy with 9-3 because last year" to "I'm going to be crushed if we go 11-1 and lose to OSU?" That would mean we beat Penn State and probably have a good shot at tying/winning the Big Ten. After a 3-9. How could that possibly be misconstrued as a BAD thing? It would be a disappointing loss, but good heavens. We went 3-9 last year. 3-9. Now we're 2-0. Enjoy it.
an 11-1 season, with the only loss being to OSU, might just get us in the NC game this year. Everyone at the top keeps having issues/getting injured. I would be VERY content with that type of season.
we beat the metaphor emu. Now let's focus on beating the acronym. Sparty can implode on his own time.
There are 6 decent to better-than-decent teams on our remaining schedule. We win 3/6. We go 9-3, a very respectable inverse of last year's record. This seems very likely. This would also be a very good outcome, given the shock of 2 years ago and the horror of last year.
The Horror was two years ago and the shock was last year.
I think you are correct sir.
I want to win against Michigan State, OSU, and Penn State and lose to Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois.
yeesh way to bring me down! the next game is emu, focus on it. don't worry about any more games.
Wow this was a strange diary post. It seems very flawed in so many respects I won't even comment. Definitely neg-worthy with extreme prejudice.
it's the epitome of a board post.
a crap board post.
a neg worthy crap board post.
