THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE 2016, 2016.1 and 2016.2

.
at the half way point of the season, as all revelations shown have come true, THE KNOWLEDGE has soared and basked in glory
.
many was the number of fools who contacted THE KNOWLEDGE when Michigan had fallen behind 7-21 to Colorado in order to challenge the infallibility of THE KNOWLEDGE's revelations
.
where are these people now? down in the cellar with the spartans
.
yes
.
now that Michigan is in the middle of a 4 week stretch of alternately playing low to no competition, THE KNOWLEDGE shall introduce THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE for the 2016 season
.
in previous years, THE CHALLENGE was introduced at the beginning of the season. THE KNOWLEDGE, of course, knew fully well that nobody was capable of winning it and becoming THE TOP FRIEND of THE KNOWLEDGE
.
however, THE CHALLENGE was still introduced at the beginning of the season to reveal to the masses how ineffective they are in predicting the future
.
yes
.
THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE 2016 is to correctly predict the 4 participants in the CF playoffs
.
those that predict correctly will be provided the greatest honor of being titled THE TOP FRIEND of THE KNOWLEDGE. wise people know that this title is infinitely more prestigious than the phony titles such as "Sir" provided by a useless setup
.
yes
.
THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE 2016.1 is to correctly predict the score of the Michigan-MSU game. Most people already know the score of the Illinois game - hence, it is worthless as a CHALLENGE
.
the correct or closest to correct predictor will win the Protege of The Week award
.
yes
.
THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE 2016.2 is to correctly predict the score of the Michigan-Indiana game
.
reply with correct responses to the overall CHALLENGE 2016 and the weekly challenges 2016.1 and 2016.2
.
and soar with THE KNOWLEDGE
.
yes
.

Soaring and THE CHALLENGE

Soaring and THE CHALLENGE

Submitted by THE_KNOWLEDGE on September 30th, 2015 at 4:54 PM
.
both before the season and after the Utah game, THE KNOWLEDGE had clearly stated that Michigan will finish the 
 
season 10-2. many is the number of people who disbelieved THE KNOWLEDGE then
.
that number has significantly reduced now
.
when OSU took the opening kickoff and marched down the field to score a touchdown, THE KNOWLEDGE received many 
 
messages doubting THE KNOWLEDGE's revelation that the OOC record will be 3-1
.
all those doubters have been left in a trail of dust
.
as THE KNOWLEDGE has soared and basked in glory
.
yes
.
the expectations following the trashing of BYU on these very pages are also unwarranted
.
as THE KNOWLEDGE has clearly mentioned, Michigan will NOT will the national championship this year. neither will Michigan finish the regular season 11-1
.
yes
.
THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE did not debut during the OOC schedule because the scores of these games were obvious and could have been predicted by most people
.
the scores of the B1G schedule are not so obvious
.
the THE KNOWLEDGE debuts the weekly CHALLENGE for the Maryland and Northwestern games with this post
.
yes
.
correctly predict the scores of these games individually to be awarded the Protege of the Week (POTW) award for the next two weeks
.
pointers to the game against Maryland black ninjas:
  • Michigan will win
  • Rain will come
  • Shutout will not happen
.
pointers to the game against Northwestern tamecats:
  • Michigan will win
  • NW will find offense highly difficult
  • Michigan will find it slightly less difficult
.
yes
.
 

Coaching Change

Coaching Change

Submitted by THE_KNOWLEDGE on September 9th, 2015 at 4:28 PM
.
after last Thursday's game, many folks, including the #2 writer on this blog - Cook, immediately compared the Utah loss to the first game under Rich Rod, another close loss to Utah
.
this reaction was of course expected
.
many people then proceeded to conclude that Michigan will finish the season 7-5, or 8-4 at best
.
these people don't understand THE KNOWLEDGE
.
yes
.
in the 2015 season review, THE KNOWLEDGE had clearly mentioned that Michigan's overall record is 10-2 and OOC record is 3-1
.
that is correct and true
.
those that follow THE KNOWLEDGE know this, and are worry-free
.
they also know that is the reason THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE did not debut last week
.
yes
.
as revealed in the previous post, THE KNOWLEDGE shall now discuss about the coaching change event that brought Jim Harbaugh (whom THE KNOWLEDGE simply refers to as Harba - removing the ugh) to Michigan
.
THE KNOWLEDGE, as readers know, does not live in the past. THE KNOWLEDGE lives in the future
.
hence, THE KNOWLEDGE generally does not talk about the past; but has made a rare exception in this case
.
yes
.
when Hoke was about to be fired, the original plan was hire a different coach - not Harba
.
given that the spread experiment with RR had failed, and the pro-style experiment with Hoke had failed, the most logical choice was to try the third system
.
the triple option
.
Paul Johnson was the prime and only candidate
.
yes
.
once PJ taken over the reins at Michigan, Braxton Miller was slated to transfer and get the NCAA waiver
.
Chavis was to be the DC
.
this would have been fine for the short term
.
however, the highly irregular spatio-temporal anomalies mentioned in the previous post by THE KNOWLEDGE intervened
.
and made Harba the head coach of Michigan
.
yes
.
back to the future
.
THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE will run on an irregular basis this season for the weekly POTW (Protege of the week) challenges
.
with this post, THE KNOWLEDGE opens the quest for the readers to become TOP FRIEND OF THE KNOWLEDGE
.
as loyal readers are aware, this is the title given to the reader who correctly predicts the participants of the National Title game and the winner
.
it is not required to predict the score of the final
.
predictions must be based before this Saturday
.
yes
.
 

The GoTK and THE CHALLENGE 2013.3

The GoTK and THE CHALLENGE 2013.3

Submitted by THE_KNOWLEDGE on November 1st, 2013 at 9:47 AM

.
THE KNOWLEDGE has not appeared on these very pages since the psu game
.
the reason is rather obvious to the followers of THE KNOWLEDGE. the highly irregular spatio-temporal disruption that happened in the 4th quarter of the game has only now been resolved
.
THE KNOWLEDGE shall explain more about this and the future in this post
.
yes
.
as anyone who saw the psu game would have figured out, the events that transpired from near the end of regulation time were unnatural. this was because of an unfortunate and highly irregular anamoly in the space-time continuum
.
originally, Michigan was slated to win the game 37-27 with a field goal on the final possession. however, the future was distorted and we ended up with the unforeseeable result
.
when such an anamoly occurs, what happens is that the universe is thrown into chaos with the future not settled for several days. thus, not even THE KNOWLEDGE can review the future under such circumstances (even the universe doesn't know anything)
.
as of today, those chaos have ended and the new future is set
.
thus, THE KNOWLEDGE is back
.
yes
.
now the original future where THE KNOWLEDGE revealed that Michigan will finish 13-1 doesn't exist, THE KNOWLEDGE can now freely discuss the situation without any repercussions
.
in the original future, the only game Michigan was slated to lose was tomorrow's game against msu
.
Michigan was to defeat OSU twice and win the Rose Bowl against Stanford for good measure
.
yes
.
now, THE KNOWLEDGE shall only reveal the regular season record of the current future
.
Michigan will finish 10-2
.
yes
.
the winners POTW.1 and POTW.2 will be acknowledged in a post next week with the POTW.2 handled under special rules (as will be described in that post)
.
now, THE CHALLENGE 2013.3 is open
.
predict the score of the msu game to become the Protege of the Week
.
yes
.
THE KNOWLEDGE shall not provide any pointers to the game in order to prevent any attempt by certain elements in Spartan Stadium that are known to play with time in the gross sense (clock manipulation etc)
.
and that is one of the reasons for the Greatness of THE KNOWLEDGE (GoTK)
.
yes
.

.

yes

.

pointers to the game:

  • Michigan will win

  • PSU appears more competent that in their previous game
  • But, it will not matter

yes

Introducing THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE 2013 and 2013.1

Introducing THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE 2013 and 2013.1

Submitted by THE_KNOWLEDGE on September 29th, 2013 at 8:25 PM

.
with this post, THE KNOWLEDGE officially announces the 2013 edition of THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE
.
yes
.
THE KNOWLEDGE specifically delayed the introduction of THE CHALLENGE for this year to give the participants a better idea of the capabilities of various teams before entering the competition
.
as long term followers of THE KNOWLEDGE of these very pages know, there are several important awards associated with THE CHALLENGE
.
each week, THE CHALLENGE will be to correctly predict the score of the Michigan game (THE KNOWLEDGE will provide helpful pointers) and become the Protege of the Week (POTW)
.
at the end of the year, the most consistent performer will be awarded the top honor of this blog - TOP FRIEND OF THE KNOWLEDGE
.
yes
.
the second most prestigious award is the CO-SOARER OF THE KNOWLEDGE - awarded to the person who correctly answers the question below:
.
which two teams will play for the National Championship and which team will win it?
.
to help seekers of the CO-SOARER title, let it be noted that the winner will be from among the following teams: Oregon, Georgia, Alabama, Stanford, Oklahoma, Fresno State
.
yes
.
now, THE KNOWLEDGE shall reminisce a bit about the season review THE KNOWLEDGE provided before the season
.
THE KNOWLEDGE revealed that Michigan will end the season 13-1 and will go 4-0 in the OOC games
.
however, when Akron came close to winning in the final minute, many doubted THE KNOWLEDGE
.
when U Conn took a 21-7 lead, some continued to doubt THE KNOWLEDGE
.
these people have been left in the dust
.
as THE KNOWLEDGE has soared and basked in glory
.
yes
.
CHALLENGE 2013.1:
correctly predict the score of the Minnesote game to be the POTW
.
pointers to the game:

  • Michigan will win
  • Minnesota will lose
  • Gardner will play better than the last 2 games
  • Minnesota will surprisingly play well

.
yes
.

Important Bowl Game Notes and special edition of THE CHALLENGE

Important Bowl Game Notes and special edition of THE CHALLENGE

Submitted by THE_KNOWLEDGE on December 20th, 2012 at 3:46 PM

.
in this post, THE KNOWLEDGE shall reveal the result of the bowl game with the USC gamecocks
.
many is the number of folks who expect Michigan to lose, especially with JTF dismissed
.
these people don't know the most important fact about the game - the fact that THE KNOWLEDGE shall be in attendance
.
yes
.
as THE KNOWLEDGE has pointed out many months ago on these very pages, Michigan has a perfect record in the presence of THE KNOWLEDGE
.
the current record stands at 19-0
.
yes
.
for people that understand THE KNOWLEDGE, this is hardly a surprise. they know that THE KNOWLEDGE will not go to a game that Michigan is slated to lose
.
thus, the mere fact that THE KNOWLEDGE will attend the bowl game means that Michigan will emerge victorious
.
yes
.
the greatest game report ever written (on this blog or elsewhere) was 5 years ago when THE KNOWLEDGE attended his last bowl game
.
that report was titled: "Capital One Bowl Report: How THE KNOWLEDGE soared over a sea of surrounding gators"
.
THE KNOWLEDGE shall provide a game report for the upcoming game as well. the title of this report shall be: "Outback Bowl Report: How THE KNOWLEDGE soared over a field of crawling cocks"
.
yes
.
while most NFL scouts are eagerly anticipating the Lewan Vs Clowney matchup, spurrier will put clowney on the other side of the line inasmuch as he knows Lewan will own clowney
.
this will end up being a benefit for both sides
.
yes
.
another mistake that people make is assuming that this game will be a defensive struggle
.
it will not be
.
yes
.
THE KNOWLEDGE hereby introduces a one-time bowl game edition of THE CHALLENGE
.
predict the score of the game to be awarded the title: co-soarer of THE KNOWLEDGE
.
THE KNOWLEDGE has already provided the pointers for the game to make the prediction easier
.
yes
.
 

The new future, and 2012.4

The new future, and 2012.4

Submitted by THE_KNOWLEDGE on October 12th, 2012 at 11:45 AM

.
Everybody that has even a half brain knew last week that Michigan will beat Purdue - that certainly did not require the power of THE KNOWLEDGE to peek into the future
.
This week, everybody that has even a half brain knows that Michigan will beat Illinois - this doesn't require a revelation from THE KNOWLEDGE either
.
yes
.
however, the actual game score is much harder to predict. THE KNOWLEDGE had mentioned last week that Michigan will easily defeat Purdue regardless of any irregularities in the spatio-temporal continuum, thus implying that the score will be one sided
.
many competitors in THE CHALLENGE 2012.3 took the clue and predicted a crushing defeat of the Boilers
.
yes
.
THE KNOWLEDGE will formally congratulate the winners of this and previous editions as well as the current (2012.4) edition of THE CHALLENGE by awarding the POTW next week
.
the reason is rather simple: next week is a virtual bye week for Michigan, and we will have time to talk about other things than the insignificant challenge posed by the spartans from east lansing
.
yes
.
as for this post, THE KNOWLEDGE is happy to reveal that the second discontinuity event reported in the previous post has occurred and the future is now clear
.
Michigan will finish the season 12-2
.
this is the same as the record in the original future, but the opponent to whom Michigan loses has obviously been changed
.
now, Michigan shall not lose another game this season, and will win the Rose Bowl

.

as usual, those that don't believe THE KNOWLEDGE will be left in the dust as THE KNOWLEDGE shall soar when this revelation is shown to be accurate when the progress of time makes the future the past
.
yes
.
THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE 2012.4 is now open. predict the correct score of the Michigan-Illinois game to be the POTW
.
pointers to the game:

  • Michigan will score very many points, and win easily again
  • Illinois will not score many points, and their coach will not chew tobacco on their sideline this time

.

yes
.

POTW, 2012.2 and ND

POTW, 2012.2 and ND

Submitted by THE_KNOWLEDGE on September 21st, 2012 at 12:19 PM

.
THE KNOWLEDGE shall use the bye week next week to congratulate all the winners of THE CHALLENGE 2012.1 and this current edition 2012.2, and award them the status of Protege of the week. At that very time, THE KNOWLEDGE shall also talk about the state of the future and of the Big Ten
.
yes
.
THE CHALLENGE 2012.2 is now open. Correctly predict the score of the Michigan-ND game to be the POTW
.
THE KNOWLEDGE shall now provide some comments and pointers to the game to aid in the predictions
.
yes
.
Before the Alabama game, everyone knew Michigan would lose, and they were correct - although not regarding how lopsided the score would be (the combination of oversigning and referees playing for Alabama made it worse than people assumed). THE KNOWLEDGE did not debut THE CHALLENGE that week because the pointers would have demoralized the fans
.
This week, everyone predicts a loss to ND as well
.
yes
.
It may be worth remembering that THE KNOWLEDGE has revealed a 2 loss season for Michigan. THE KNOWLEDGE has not yet mentioned whether that second loss will be in the Big Ten regular season, or in the postseason, or out of conference
.
Just that there is another loss this season
.
That loss will not happen this week
.
yes
.
Pointers to the game:

  • Michigan will win
  • Notre Dame will lose
  • Michigan's defense will yield many yards to the ND run game
  • Michigan's passing offense will bamboozle ND

.

yes
.

THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE: 2012.1

THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE: 2012.1

Submitted by THE_KNOWLEDGE on September 6th, 2012 at 2:13 PM

.
many is the number of people who live in the past. these people still debate and try to decipher the game against Alabama
.
most people wonder what would have happened if Michigan had retained Rich Rod as the OC. They also believe that with the personnel Michigan currently has, RR's offense would have lit up Alabama this year and Mattison's defense would not have had to work so hard - resulting in a Michigan win
.
that may be true, but THE KNOWLEDGE does not live in the past
.
THE KNOWLEDGE lives in the future
.
yes
.
as mentioned in the previous post, people should quit worrying and look forward to seeing Michigan go 12-1 the rest of the year
.
the first part of that starts with wins over Air Force and Mass
.
yes
.
THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE makes its 2012 debut on these very pages now in a special manner
.
in this edition of THE CHALLENGE, you are required to predict the scores of both the AF and Mass games. there will be 3 POTW (Protege Of THE KNOWLEDGE) award winners at the end of the two games:
1. For the AF game
2. For the Mass game
3. For the cobined best predictor
.
ideally the POTW will predict both scores correctly and hence win the third automatically, but that, of course, will not happen
.
yes
.
as usual THE KNOWLEDGE shall now provide pointers to the games to make the score prediction:

  • Michigan will win both games as noted above
  • Neither game will be close
  • Michigan will run and pass at will
  • The defense may appear to struggle but will not in reality

.

yes
.
as usual, THE KNOWLEDGE shall soar and bask in glory
.
as will the POTW awardees
.
yes
.
