Maybe I will get slaughtered for this, I don't know, but I felt it needed to be stated if for no other reason than I cant argue with everyone who disagrees with me. Simply put, how can any Michigan fan root for MSU this weekend? I dont subscribe to the strength of conference perception argument. I dont root for MSU against anyone except OSU and possibly Notre Dame depending on who needs to lose to make Michigan look better by whatever metric I have decided to apply in my head. I dont care about the Big Ten, I care about Michigan. Rooting for MSU, OSU, or Notre Dame (except in rare examples cited above) is tantamount to treason. The fabrication that MSU is the Big Tens great hope is bullshit and I refuse to allow ESPN or any other site full of hacks to convince me otherwise. Where does ESPN (or any other site) come up with this theory??? Am I alone? Please tell me I'm not alone... Relevant ESPN link not included because, obviously.

It's Notre Dame week. More specifically, it's the last Notre Dame week. I wanted to make a few different wallpapers for this game, but only had time finish one. I figure one is still better than none, right?

Anyway. The photo I used is from the 2012 game (I believe it was taken by ESPN). I chose this one because Michigan will be wearing away jerseys this week. It's also just a really cool photo. I used a color pop effect to really bring out the maize and blues. I think it looks pretty cool. Kinda neon-ish.

Anyway, here it is. Hope you like it. Go Blue! (click for full size)

 

Predictions for Notre Dame

Predictions for Notre Dame

Let's hear your predictions for the ND game.  Who wins and why?  Who will be the players of the game on offense and defense?

I have UM winning 28-13.  UM goes into halftime ahead 14-13 and then comes out in the second half with a dominating performance defensively.  I think Frank Clark is going to have a very good game as I see ND LT Ronnie Stanley struggling with his speed all night.  Clark ends the game with 2 sacks and 3 TFL.  On offense, I'm going with Devin Funchess.  I think the running game will struggle some (still looking better than 2013) but the Devin to Devin connection will continue its rise to the top QB/WR combo in the conference. Funchess ends with 10 receptions for 165 yards and 2 more TD's.

I think this is okay for in-season. If not, apologies and please delete. I ran across this story and did not see it posted. It will certainly garner some attention while they sort out the validity of the claims. Colt Lyerla, former TE from Oregon claims he was offered expensive things from a booster while he was being recruited by the University. He ultimately played three years at Oregon, and never received the gifts. http://www.foxsports.com/college-football/story/colt-lyerla-former-oreg…

Greatest UM wins vs ND & Bob Ufer

I did not see this posted.  MGoBlue is going through the top 5 wins over ND and has video clips of the bottom 2.  I was lucky enough to have listened to Bob Ufer and one of the clips is the 78 game with Bob almost crying at the end of the game, though it was not that close.  I think he did cry when AC scored against Indiana on the last play of the game to break a 21-21 tie in 1979.

I wonder which one will be #1: The first UTL or the Catch?

PSA: If you have Directv and live in Indiana, check to make sure you still have NBC. Due to a dispute between the NBC provider and Directv, NBC is not available for viewing to some of us lucky fans who want to see the game on Saturday or watch shows on a network that hasn't been relevant since Friends. 

Maybe I've been living with my head up my ass, but I had no idea about this until the TV ratings thread earlier today and I figured that it deserved its own thread. 

The easiest way to get around this is to buy a cheap HD antenna and use it for Saturday. I found one pretty cheap on Amazon for only $10. 

Good luck and may the corn be with you.
