I'm going to keep track in my signature of how many get posted. Over or under 74 of these posts between now and September 4, 2010?
Place your odds on how many "will RR succeed" posts we will see
no question there are over 200 days till next season
Id say its going to be over, I bet 500 MGoPoints.
"How many beers it takes to get Charlie Weis drunk"=The over.
Honestly my guess is that you are going to get so sick of counting how many of these dumbass posts (on both side of the fence) that there are over the next year that you will stop counting it.
So the real question to me is will you stop counting before you reach the O/U?
haha you're probably right. you can count that. Now the real question is when will you stop counting when I'm going to stop counting before I reach the O/U.
By promoting a count of it, you are either promoting it so some will want to see how many they can create, or by emphasizing it, (hopefully) killing the "wonder" of it and in effect throwing water on the fire.
I want to say under, but human nature and the "thrill" of coaching "what-ifs" are too much for most to ignore.
This will become the blog effect of gawker traffic slow downs.-Some will take a different road for a while.
It's going to happen whether we count them or not. This is one thing that won't go away if you ignore it sorry to say.
and hence, why i keep refreshing the page.
I'll put an over/under at 23874616.5. I guess I'll bet on the over.
Can we set an O/U on how many I delete? One of these days, the repetitive threads will lead to an explosion where I start going grammar nazi on everyone to the point it drives some of the less intelligent posting away until football season comes back.
I'm ready for MGoNazis: please delete or relegate many of the dumb OT posts. Delete the "Will RR succeed" posts. If you don't take control, it will become so painful to come to this site that my readership will wane. I waste enough time here as it is: I don't want to waste it wading through garbage.
k06em01 will destroy both of these numbers in a matter of days. He is the one we should really be tracking.
EDIT: I think he's already put up two new threads since I posted this. The guy is a fucking machine!
Over 340...the number of points we gave up this season. I think there are a lot more stupid people than you think. Plus, there will be tons of them every time a story trickles out about the NCAA investigation. And then if any sanctions come down, there will be a million.
Over... but I'm taking into account that only n00bs would still post a "will RR succeed" thread after this post, so I'll go with 86.
I'll raise 55, but I'm still all in for Michigan.
If Brian and his posse don't rein things I'm, I'll predict at least 200 "will RR succeed" posts in the next year. There will be a bunch over the next two months (at least one a day,)it will slow down in Feb. & March (one every other day,) ramp up during Spring practice (one a day,) slow down in May/June (one every other day,) then one a day in July, and two a day in August.That's 240, and we haven't even gotten to September!
Or is it how many this is our schedule and how many wins/losses will we have?
Same old same old.
Over. Way way over.
the number of posts saying that Bob Stoops is coming to Michigan
