THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE is always posted as a board topic, instead of as a diary

With about 4 minutes left in the game, the ND QB throws up a prayer from his own end zone, and it “miraculously” turns into a 95 yard TD

.

People start panicking, and there is a lot of hand wringing about the soon-to-be loss and the missed opportunities and abysmal refereeing

.

UMass goes up 17-7 with just more than a minute left in the half

.

People panic again - and there is a lot of anxiety about App State – Part 2

.

yes

.

The problem is these people either don’t read THE KNOWLEDGE or are too ignorant to understand THE KNOWLEDGE

.

yes

.

Those who understand THE KNOWLEDGE were completely free from anxiety and knew the result beforehand

.

for THE KNOWLEDGE had clearly noted in the season review that Michigan wins all the OOC games. Particularly, in the pointers provided in THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE-1 before the ND game, THE KNOWLEDGE had clearly stated that

  • Michigan will win
  • ND will lose

.

yes

.

Those that follow THE KNOWLEDGE shall be worry-free

.

The rest can continue to watch THE KNOWLEDGE soar and bask in glory, while being left behind in a cloud of dust

.

yes

.

Now, THE KNOWLEDGE shall reveal the inaugural recipient(s) of the prestigious PROTÉGÉ OF THE WEEK award

.

While no one correctly predicted the M-ND score, the following users came closest (1 point off):

  • mgome7 (predicted 27-24 M)
  • Baloo_Dance (predicted 28-23 M)

.

Since this is the inaugural award, THE KNOWLEDGE has decided to forgo the essay contest, and honor BOTH with the award

.

yes

.

CONGRATULATIONS!

.

these folks can enjoy their amazing awards for two weeks: this week, and last week

.

yes

.

THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE will return this week for the BGSU game after taking a week off due to his involvement in certain extraordinary activities

Baseball: Dual POTW Honors

Baseball: Dual POTW Honors

Submitted by formerlyanonymous on April 19th, 2010 at 2:34 PM

As a follow up to yesterday's Illinois recap, the Big Ten Conference tabbed two Michigan players for POTW honors. Patrick Biondi won Player of the Week and Tyler Burgoon earned Pitcher of the Week.

Press release notes:

Burgoon remained unstoppable out of the bullpen, posting saves against Toledo (April 13) and Bowling Green (April 14) and the victory at Illinois (April 18) to secure the series victory for the Maize and Blue. On the week, Burgoon threw 8.0 innings, allowing just three hits and striking out 11 batters. His biggest performance came in the weekend finale when he came out of the bullpen and scattered three hits over 5.1 innings with seven strikeouts for his team-leading fifth victory.

Biondi had an historic week, beginning with breaking Bruce Fox's 55-year-old rookie record for stolen bases, swiping his 20th bag of the year in the victory over Toledo. Biondi reached base and scored to lead off all five games last week, posting a .526 average with three doubles, a triple and a home run. After becoming the first Wolverine since 2003 to lead off a game with a home run on Saturday (April 17), Biondi went 3-for-3 with two walks, coming up a home run shy of the cycle in the weekend's last game.

Michigan earned both weekly awards for the first time since April 15, 2002, when current MLB catcher Jake Fox (2001-03) and pitcher Rich Hill (2000-02) swept the awards for their performances, which also came in Champaign against the Illini.

Burgoon edged out Alan Oaks and Alex Wimmers of Ohio State who both had very impressive 8 inning starts a piece, and Indiana's Drew Leininger who went 7.2 innings giving up just one unearned run.

Biondi's weekend edged out Zach Hurley's 8/15 weekend with a triple and a homer and Ryan LaMarre's 10/19 week with a homer, a triple, two doubles, 10 runs, and 6 RBI.

Baseball: LaMarre Big10 POTW

Updated this in the baseball post, but for those who may not check said update, Ryan LaMarre won the Big Ten Player of the Week on the offensive side of the game this week.

LaMarre earns his second career Player of the Week honor and his first this season after leading Michigan to a series win against Purdue over the weekend. The outfielder hit .692 and slugged 1.077 on the strength of three doubles and a triple vs. the Boilermakers. He also recorded three hits in every conference game, extending his hitting streak to 10 games dating back to last season. Against Central Michigan on Wednesday, LaMarre made his first start since suffering an injury at Texas Tech on Feb. 20. He went 1-for-3 with a run scored and an RBI in a 13-7 win. In eight appearances this season, LaMarre has four multi-hit games and is hitting .519 with a .704 slugging percentage.

He is the first Michigan player to earn the honor since Ryan pulled off the feat on March 9, 2009.
