Guessthescore-OSUNTOSU

I keep a relatively well-updated roster on NCAA 2013, based on Operation Sports but I tweak Michigan and its opponents as the season goes along. This morning while chasing the toddler around I left it simulating the Michigan vs. Oregon State game. I hear it blowing up from the other room and come back to find Peppers returning a kickoff. Now I'm watching, and getting into this. Oregon State doesn't complete a pass until the 3rd quarter—a 9-yard screen on 4th and 14—but they're running all over the right side (Ojemudia's). I try Marshall and it gets worse. I try a formation that has RJS there and nope.

But the fake videogame OL is consistently getting push, and Rudock is 60% with no INTs and 4 TDs, and Butt gets 9 catches for 110 yards, and Green busts a long one in garbage time, and because it's on sim I'm seeing angles of Michigan Stadium that I don't really get while playing. Fake Michigan beats Fake Oregon State 62-10, outgaining the Fake Beavers 387 yards to 192 (60 yards passing after giving up on the run). Morris comes in kneels and the band strikes up The Victors. There's nobody but the toddler around. So I raise my fist, and am transported home.

How this works again:

  1. Readers predict the final score of a designated game by placing a guess in the comments, preferably in the format of [M score][hyphen][Opp score], for example "41-30" or "35-31 Michigan", or "28-24 Go Blue", or "38-0 Harbaugh!" etc.
  2. The three guys who read this part holler at people who post in a different format
  3. First person (by timestamp) to post a particular score has it.
  4. If you got it right, I contact you for an address by your MGoBlog account email, and you give me some time to get that to you.
  5. If nobody got it right or I don't hear from the winner(s) we push it to next week or let it go.

About Last Time:

Michigan went to Utah and a ton of people predicted the 24-17 final score, but with Michigan on top. We still have two get the score correct, and three people were off by one. They get Endzones!

This Week's Game:

Michigan comes home to face the Beavers. At the Big House. I mean, banner-touching, Varsity-singin, Blues Brothers-dancin', 107,601 person-holding, Crisler's seat-reserving Michigan Stadium!

And on the Line:

MichiganPrintLarge

A full-size, limited edition print by famous portrait artist (and Bacon book interviewee) Ben McCready. Bennie is named for THAT Bennie, who was his godfather. McCready is part of the lifeblood of this Michigan of ours. And while the Legends jerseys are no longer, some of the men they honored deserve to be on your wall (clockwise from left: Anthony Carter, Tom Harmon, Bob Chappuis, Bennie Oosterbaan, Ron Kramer, Desmond Howard).

Our favorite ol' hole in the ground is shown on the day it opened (bottom left), as it appeared in the Bump/Bo days (bottom right), and filled in the last year before the halo (1997). The Collector's Edition is 24" by 32" and there will only ever be 1,997 of them. You can also buy an 18" by 24" print from his site. Note that these are prints not posters—I have one and it's about as thick as HTTV's cover.

Hey look, we're not so depressed about the expected outcome of every game as to give up on the weekly score-guessing contest for stuff again. Harbaugh!

How this works again:

  1. Readers predict the final score of a designated game by placing a guess in the comments, preferably in the format of [M score][hyphen][Opp score], for example "41-30" or "35-31 Michigan", or "28-24 Go Blue", or "38-0 Harbaugh!" etc.

  5. If nobody got it right or I don't hear from the winner(s) we push it to next week or let it go.

About Last Time:

Was the Minnesota game, and before that it was the last Utah game and I was offering Ann Arbor Torch & Pitchfork shirts. Last year sucked you guys.

This Week's Game:

@Utah on a Thursday night and I'm not even mad.

And on the Line:

FIVE!!! That is 5/cinco/1-2-3-4-5 copies we have to give out this week to five different winners. So here's the deal: this time you can choose the same score as someone else did, because the closest five to the final score get copies of Endzone Brandon's Lasting Lessons.

51x6VEt8wdL._SX327_BO1,204,203,200_

This is the Dave Brandon book, with the How Harbaugh Happened story to finish it. I'll save the deep stuff for my upcoming review of it, and Bacon never puts it this way, but the gist of the story is how the organism that is Michigan athletics contracted NFL disease then fought it off. The thing about it is Bacon talked to everybody! Groups of former players from different eras, the leaders of the students, the bloggers, the program insiders, the old guard, the university's leaders, and yes, the people inside both Martin's and Brandon's athletic department when Michigan skewed into its tangent.

If you've ever heard of college athletics you will find it fascinating. If you're a Michigan fan it will blow your mind. If you're in Ann Arbor, come talk about it tonight at Rackham, 7 p.m.

Contest fine print: One entry per user. First user to choose a set of scores wins, determined by the timestamp of your entry (for my ease I prefer if you don't post it as a reply to another person's score--if you do it won't help or hurt you). Deadline for entries is 24 hours before the start of the game. MGoEmployees and Moderators exempt from winning. The algorithm finds the winners as it chooses. The algorithm is self-correcting. The algorithm is back! This is not the algorithm. But it will be again soon.

Hillsdale (with an 's' so not like the Back to the Future II/III housing development) is a small, DII private school nestled in rural south-central Michigan. If you take Michigan Avenue out of Ypsi and stay on it past the cottage lakes and US 127, you'll find the turn-off for it. It's small, expensive, teaches a classical liberal education (you learn Greek and stuff), and has a deep political party alignment that dates back to abolitionism. Average GPA and test scores of incoming freshmen are on par with Michigan. Things they're proud of: never accepting a tax dollar, sending a greater percentage of their student body to the Civil War than everyone but West Point, sending a desegregated ROTC unit to WWI, graduation rates (96%) that even Schlissel would be impressed with, and a popular publication (2.7 million readers) that gets quoted a lot on internet message boards.

You probably know them from that school with the 18-year-old mayor whom this was based on:

No, pointing out that a school is bent toward a political party when that school advertises that fact as its main selling point is not politics. The algorithm tried to be cool by not pointing out that pretty much every bit of material Hillsdale puts out to promote their school also tacitly rips on Michigan in some way. This is not the algorithm. It gave up on being that long ago.

This Week's Game:

They call themselves the cradle of coaches. But these days you don't get a cradle; you get a crib, and the crib has to be solid on all four sides (a side can't come down), and it has to be able to adjust for when the baby gets bigger, and preferably it converts to a toddler bed too. Cribs are really expensive, but that's only scratching the surface. There's the swinging electronic cradle that your baby coach will want to sleep in, and the swing that just calms your baby coach, and the swing that takes 4 C batteries and does both, and the travel version of the same. And these days pack-'n-plays are all the rage, though they're really hard to put together.

Perhaps one day Chuck Martin will be a Bo or an Ara or a Woody, or a Randy Walker, etc. He seems to have the chops. But then, even Beethoven spent his first year spitting on himself, soiling diapers, and crying. So much crying.

  • No player who went somewhere other than PSU can be THAT good.
  • Pennsylvania boys have no other reason to go to Michigan.
  • Ten points ought to be a safe enough lead when going against Brady.
  • It's impossible for five future NFLers to be good at blocking.
  • There's no way all that talent comes from having won a national championship 4 years earlier.
  • The 30-yard pass on 3rd-and-12 that he didn't catch on that same drive doesn't matter.
  • It's okay to put 2 seconds on the clock for JoePa when he asks, but not for Carr when he asks a minute later.
  • It's certainly not good line play or bad blocking that got Morelli killed.
