I went back to see some of the preseason predictions Mgobloggers were making and found this interesting post from MGoBlueEyes. I dont know about you, but he has been just about spot on with one minor exception thus far. Read and enjoy. My comments in CAPS along the way..

Western: Not guaranteed win, but we can't lose to a MAC school two years in a row, can we? Nah. Win, 1-0.[NO BIGGIE, EXPECTED]
ND: I see ND as improved, but we can't fumble five bazillion times in one game again, can we? I see the ND game as a toss-up, either team could win, but I think we'll be able to pull it out. Win. 2-0.[AND CLOSE IT WAS]
Eastern: OMG RON ENGLISH? No. Eastern will prove feisty with an expected aggressive defense, but it's Eastern. Win, 3-0. [THEY HUNG IN THERE FOR ONE HALF?]
Indiana: Uh... Indiana's not good. At all. Win, 4-0. [MAYBE THEY ARE SOMEWHAT OK, BUT 4-0, NOT MANY THOUGHT]
MSU: A toss-up. Michigan will pull it out, I hope. Even though it's at God Awful East Lansing. Calling it here, a win. 5-0. [IT WAS CLOSE, AND WE ALMOST PULLED IT OUT, BUT NO CIGAR]
Iowa: Who? Oh yeah, Iowa. Have we ever played them? Seems like the 1980's since we have. Stupid Big Ten/Eleven with its crazy scheduling. Anyway, This is another pick-em, and since I've said we'll win the first two toss-ups, I should chose us to lose one. OK, first loss to I-oh-way. 5-1.[INDEED]
Delaware State? OMG JUST LIKE APP STATE?!?!??! No, not this time. 6-1.[TRUEEEEE]
Penn State: yeah... uh... not gonna win. 6-2.[UH..DEFINITIVELY, NO]
Illinois: Juice Williams shows Tate Forcier how to run the spread. Lose, 6-3.[UGH, DID HE EVER. IN FACT A DIARY WAS RECENTLY POSTED ON PROPER FAKES ON THE READ OPTION, WITH JUICE ONE OF THE FEATURED QBs]
THE REMAINING PREDICTIONS ARE BELOW, LETS SEE WHERE IT GOES...
Purdue: They suck. However, just like last season Purdue puts a totally untested QB against us in hopes of racking up another 48 points. This time, it doesn't work. Win, 7-3.
Wisconsin: Toss up. Since I've predicted 2-1 so far in the toss up games, time for another loss. 7-4.
The Bucknuts: Face it, they're better than us. But if you want to live in the magic happy land were it's OMG BRANDON MINOR DOES BIAKABUTUKA IMPRESSION! UPSET W/300+ YDS RUSHING BABY! BELIEVE IT! At the moment I choose to live in magic happy land, 8-4 with the shocker upset of OSU! 8-4!!!!! woo!
We will then go to a crappy bowl and lose. So... 8-5.
