Iowa is Dead.....your morning pregame open thread

Submitted by jamiemac on November 5th, 2011 at 9:02 AM

A brilliant, sunny Go Blue morning here in northwest Ohio. High fived a couple fellow MICH fans that I saw at the park on my somewhat chilly morning run. And Go Blue'd the one OSU fan I saw. But, he wasnt running, was kinda overweight and I think he had been in th park all night. Hey-O!

Iowa is soooooo done like dinner in a few hours

Otherwise, I need a best bet or two for the day, so let me hear them

Best bet? That the chubby buckeye will be eating donuts within the hour......

I'm off to the gym for a pre-game workout proudly wearing my "Michigan Alumni" sweatshirt for my fellow Ohionians viewing pleasure.

SportsCenter see the man cave in Urban Meyer's house? First of all, that room looks incredible. Second of all, he has a big picture of Bo Schembechler hanging up.

But I am still nervous as hell.  Got on my 20 year old Michigan Sweatshirt on that I bought from Steve and Barry's, still comfortable but it has shrunk quite a bit around my belly.  Damn Dryer!

My man cave dojo is ready to roll. 

Best bet, Stevie WIlliams hires a psychiatrist!

Another good bet is Oklahoma State -21 over Kansas State.  Kansas State only has one loss, but it was by 41 points at home against Oklahoma last week.  Kansas State will not be able to stay within 3 tds on the road in a night game against a pumped up Oklahoma State.

If you can find yourself near technology, all may not be lost. If we're talking about someone significantly younger than you and perhaps not quite into football, there is never a better birthday gift than watching Michigan win (hopefully) as it happens.

....but I do the same thing - I set the rules, as strange as they seem to my wife, who is not a sports person like the rest of her family. My family is full of Michigan (and other B1G)  alumni and these are huge events. I was painting trim at 6 AM this morning so I wouldn't have to do it at, say, noon.

My sister married that night. Needless to say we were glued to the phones disappointingly for the reception. The entire family made it to the bar for the start of the second half. I have never had for fun being blitzed with my dad and grandma. Best game.
