Predicts 5 M victories.

That is by far the lowest number i've heard thus far, and I believe his main deciding factor is freshman QBs. Someone should remind him of the like of Chad Henner, Pryor and the like. Frosh QBs are the best at times, but far from a death sentence.

Boy, I sure hope we don't end up with 5 wins. Recruiting will stagnate, and Rich Rod will most definitely be on the hot seat. With true freshman QB and average D, very possible we end up with 5 wins though.

it is funny that he bashes us for using one of two true freshman QBs and without taking a breath praises Chris Peterson for playing a true freshman (Moore) for Boise State last year.

I was recently watching a rerun of the 2007 Motor City Bowl on the TV, in which Mr. Ware was commentating

He and the other dude were BSing when hilarity ensues

OTHER GUY: "You know what one of your best plays was, for the Lions?"
(brief pause)
"Handing it off to Barry Sanders. He was so much fun to watch!" etc. etc.

I lol'd. Wish I could've seen Andre's face during that gem of a moment

the more I'm inclined to believe humanity reached its zenith when Corey Hart crooned us with "Sunglasses at Night" and is now tumbling down the devolutionary ladder.

If you fucking idiots can't differentiate between a freshman QB like Pryor or Henne stepping into an offense littered with NFL talent and mucho experienced personnel(For fucks sake Chad threw to Breaston, Avant, AND Edwards in his career), from Tate Forcier and this current Michigan squad, then....wow. Just. Wow. There are no words.

First of all, 5-7 IS a distinct possibility for Michigan in 2009. There's a lot of reasons to be excited this fall based on the spring game and some anecdotal evidence from fall practice, but nobody really knows what Wolverine team is going to line up versus Western Michigan on September 5.
If you distract yourself from the monster behind the curtain known as the Michigan depth chart, yes, the offense should be better, but the defense probably has a long way to go.

Secondly, EMU, Indiana, Purdue, and Delaware State are probably going to be UM wins. That's 4 wins right there.
With the exception of Illinois, Michigan's remaining opponents on the '09 schedule all played in bowl games last year.

Third, Andre Ware probably has never forgiven Detroit for all of that booing on Sundays, so if we haven't started to discount all of these stupid jabs at the Wolverines by now, maybe it's time we all start.

That safety ... yeesh. He may have been a bit more consistent that Andre or John Witkowski, but that may have been the worst Lions play of all time. And that's saying something.
