THE CHALLENGE and other important notes

Submitted by THE_KNOWLEDGE on November 22nd, 2011 at 12:15 PM

THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE did not appear last week because THE KNOWLEDGE was personally present in Michigan Stadium to see Michigan destroy Nebraska. THE KNOWLEDGE adopts the same policy as TV folks who do not pick games they will be present at and calling
.
yes
.
and, no, that does not mean THE KNOWLEDGE is Lloyd Carr. Michigan's record in the presence of THE KNOWLEDGE in 19-0. This is obvious because THE KNOWLEDGE does not go to games that Michigan loses
.
On the note of identity, many people here have posited over the years that "Brian Cook" is the alter ago of THE KNOWLEDGE. These people don't understand THE KNOWLEDGE
.
THE KNOWLEDGE is the greatest writer on these very pages, and specializes in things no one else can even fathom
.
yes
.
THE KNOWLEDGE had initially called a 12-2 season record for Michigan. In that scenario, Michigan wins against Iowa and wins the BTCG and loses to Oregon in overtime in the Rose Bowl
.
that was the correct way for the season to play out, until the referees intervened in the Iowa game and changed the spatio-temporal continuum. These kinds of events happen extremely infrequently, and that is why THE KNOWLEDGE is wrong on some extremely rare occasions
.
THE KNOWLEDGE has already owned up to this unexpected error, and called quits to the season that is being announced in this post
.
yes
.
of course, everyone wants to know what the final record will be in this referee-altered reality
.
obviously, everyone knows by now that Michigan will handily beat the Buckeyes this week. Hence, the final regular season edition of THE KNOWLEDGE CHALLENGE is for you to guess the right score with these pointers:
Michigan will win
OSU will lose
OSU's offense will break out a couple of big plays, but will be held in check for the remainder of the game
Michigan's offense is not as prolific as it was against Nebraska
.
at the end of the season, the POTWs and the TOP FRIEND OF THE KNOWLEDGE will be announced
.
yes
.
Michigan's final record is 11-2 with a BCS bowl game win
.
yes
.
some may even call this a better scenario than the unaltered version where M wins the Big Ten but loses in the Rose Bowl. These people are actually correct
.
yes
.
Finally, on to the other issue regarding OSU. THE KNOWLEDGE clearly noted on these very pages - much before the world realized Tressel is a rogue and a cheater - that Urban Meyer will be coaching OSU in 2012. The people who laughed at that suggestion are now eating crow
.
just as THE KNOWLEDGE soars again
.
leaving every doubter in a trail of dust
.
yes
.
PS: Some may want to go and read that post where THE KNOWLEDGE noted Meyer will be OSU's coach to understand what happens to the Michigan 2012 season
.

If you carefully dissect the cryptic message, he says his presence doesn't mean he is Lloyd.  Left unstated is the flip side of that -- his presence doesn't mean he is not Lloyd.  In fact, his presence has no bearing on whether he is Lloyd or not.  If THE_KNOWLEDGEMENT wasn't really Lloyd Carr, wouldn't he simply say "I am not Lloyd Carr"?

31-21

 

Meyer left the UF program in shambles (after key assistants left),  he returns to Ohio  with a good freshman quarterback, but will he attract quality assistant coaches?  If not, it will be a long 5 years in Ohio.

"THE KNOWLEDGE is the greatest writer on these very pages, and specializes in things no one else can even fathom"

Then surely no mere human can attest to THE KNOWLEDGE'S level of specialization in such things. 

Regarding the game:

Michigan 27

Ohio 17

from last off season:

THE KNOWLEDGE will reveal what will happen two seasons hence

.

coacing changes will occur both in Ann Arbor and Columbus

.

yes

.

Tressel will "retire" and will be replaced by Urban Meyer in Columbus

.

In Ann Arbor, the new coach will be one-time Meyer assistant, Dan Mullen

.

thence a new Ten Year War will commence, similar to the Bo-Woody years

 

... WRONG

from before 2009:

 

THE KNOWLEDGE guarantees that NCAA will reply stating that the self-imposed sanctions are too much, and will recommend easing on these
.
yes
.
the first question THE KNOWLEDGE will tackle is regarding the conference expansion plans

.
what the vast majority of folks do not know is that Texas, Oklahoma and ATM have already agreed to join the Big Ten

 

...WRONG

from before the ND coaching search:

 

However, THE KNOWLEDGE will happily reveal the new HC at ND

...

The current Washington HC Steve Sarkisian

 

WRONG.

 

No, I don't like kids believing in Santa Clause, or the Easter Bunny, either. This is stupid.
