I'm not super familiar with mgovideo, other than what I can see right now on the site. What's the typical delay between the end of the game and when it's posted there? A day? A week?

Good point. It sounds like they were instructed to pick a word, not limited to adjectives. I'd love to hear the coaches describe their teams with an adverb. Or better yet, let's describe each B1G team with an interjection:

Of all of the predictions I've read in this thread so far, this would seem to be the most likely.

Losses to ND, PSU, and OSU. Offense looks awful for the first 3 weeks of the season, and puts it together to our collective amazement.
MSU shits the bed and goes 8-5. This is due to a number of injuries that Izzo (yes, Izzo) will go out of his way to comment on, and Sparty's confusion about how to adapt to their status as perceived league front-runner.
OSU wins the B1G title game, but elation in Columbus is tempered by news of an NCAA scandal reminiscent of the Reggie Bush scandal. Urban Meyer retires again in January 2015.

2.) When they play the weekly hype video before the team runs out of the tunnel.

It's great to see the amount of quality depth there is on this roster (CB, LB, and RB specifically.) That's what recruiting success, and more normative levels of attrition will get you. If the OL approaches any level of competence this year, expectations for 2015 will be high.

That's either the best name ever for a band, or a very scary medical diagnosis.

I don't know that it's vital to re-read the first three before continuing with 4 & 5. I'm on my second read of AFfC after reading all 5 sequentially. The thing is, if you don't know what happens in 4 & 5, you'll miss the significance of much of the forshadowing pertaining to the more recent books. Regardless of what you decide to do, I agree that it's a lot of fun to get new meaning from seemingly trivial events on the second read.
As far as favorite chapters, I really like Catelyn VII (ACoK) and Jamie V (ASoS). Jamie's story arc is my favorite in the series, and these sections add great depth to Jamie as a character.

It's fun to look back and compare where players are compared to MGo's early projections. A potential suggestion for people with more writing skill than I posess: We have the "Hello" posts and recruiting profiles. It might also be cool if there were individual posts dedicated to a career retrospective for each player when he departs (via graduation, attrition, whatever.) It could have comparisons of projections to actual performance, top 5 highlights, etc.
Something like this would result in a pretty cool archive of players' careers that we could show our kids someday down the road. (Anyone besides me anticipate difficulty adequately explaining the magnificence of Denard to your kids with words alone?) Anyway, just a thought. Keep up the great work.

"I guarantee the no-show or no-buy students don't give flying fuck that they play commercials during breaks or pipe in music."
I don't think that's the case for all of the students you're talking about. Some of them have undoubtedly grown up within the culture of Michigan Football as it was pre-Brandon and Martin. Many of them are the children of the GOML alums.
Sure, there are other factors at play, but I don't think you can dismiss this one out of hand.

Priorities, good sir.
We'd all prefer "a more evenly distributed level of talent per class." Let's worry first about putting together a running game that gains yards. Isaac would help in this regard.

If you're a fan of the Detroit Lions, the Draft (and by extension, mock draft) is the most excitement/optimism you can hope for. We've been conditioned...

If attending five games in a year earns you the title of "Michigan Football Superfan," what title is he doling out to the now shat-upon plebes that have been season ticket holders for decades?
