OOC opponent and predictions (concise)

Submitted by THE.MICHIGAN.MAN on July 27th, 2009 at 4:59 PM
In this post, i shall dwell into the most logical OOC game for 2010 and also just provide a W/L prediction for each 2009 game. In a lter post, i shall explain more in detail on the rationale behind the W/L predictions.
........
Most logical OOC game:
There have been several lousy attempts at predicting who the 2010 OOC opponent will be. While Michigan may well come up with some mediocre SEC (read Arkansas) or Pac 10 (Cal) opponent, what makes the most logical OOC opponent? I submit that it is OSU; yes, that school down south. You CAN play a conference team as an OOC game; there is precedence for it. Even Cook's Big 10 round robin format from a while back suggested this. SO, why OSU and not MSU or other? Because we will be opening our new stadium (you know what i mean, new stands as opposed to an actual new stadium) in 2010; that's why. We MUST play the opening game against OSU. Also, this will mean we have played two straight games against them with a bowl game inbetween. This will add FIRREEE to the rivarly and make us win more games.

........
On to the predictions

Western Michigan - Autowin<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /?>

Notre Dame - Likely W

Eastern Michigan - Autowin

Indiana  - Autowin

@ Michigan State  - Autowin

@ Iowa - Loss

Delaware State  - Autowin

Penn State - Likely W

@ Illinois - Loss

@ Purdue - Autowin

@ Wisconsin - Likely W

Ohio State - Functional DNP


So, we are going 10-2 at best, 7-5 at worst with a median of 8.5 wins. BET ON IT. No MNC this year.

I have to completely disagree with these.

To say that MSU is an auto-win and that OSU is a functional DNP is stupid. We have a chance in the OSU game just like how MSU is not an Auto-win.

At least I'm not the only one that thought this. Those are the first two things I noticed. I couldn't even stand to read this article, so I just skimmed it and still decided the poster is a super tard. I would think that we would lose at least one of the two games (MSU and wisky), if not both. Also, playing OSU twice would be a deadly schedule, and just plain stupid. Even trying to talk to OSU about that would be embarassing to every person involved with Michigan.

I was with you at first when I got to the part about OSU. I assumed you meant Oklahoma St. based on Brian's post. Then I read the next sentence. I stopped reading after that.

The original Michigan Man or The Michigan Man or whoever he was would come and spout lines of glory. Things such at

Toilet Paper sux! [Expletive] fO$U!

He even had his own blog that made it about 3 posts before it died. Spoofing mlive boards just becomes a bit too obnoxious of a shtick.

He stole this phrase from Chaucer. It's Middle English, spoken primarily around Dorchester and Kent. It translates loosely as "hot coals pressed to the testicles."
