Mgoblog 2010 Season Predictions "survey" UPDATED

Submitted by tpilews on August 5th, 2010 at 2:46 PM


I created a "survey". This will automatically tally the results. We're doing this on another forum with prizes, but I was interested in seeing what type of result mgoblog is expecting this season. I figured I'd get quite a few more responses on here. Please only fill out the form once.

I have taken the survey, but will the results be made available and if so when? 

Edit: I too was very optimistic...maybe I should have taken this survey before I watched Trev predict 11-1!

I picked 8 wins, but I had wins over ND, MSU, and Purdue. I think we have over a 50% chance in every one of those games, but I think we'll lose one of them. So really I'm saying 7-5. Going 7-5, beating the teams we are supposed to beat (Indiana, Illinois, etc.), and being in every game is good enough for me this year. Next year we should be looking at a Jan 1 bowl game.

But I thought 8-4 WAS optimistic.  I have us winning one we probably shouldn't (thinking we're due to win one of the 3 winnable but probably shouldn't games). I'd think, especially with Brian struggling to see us getting to 7-5...this would be the sunny side.

Too early, I thought.  But the web poll thing is nifty.  Though should get a results link posted up on this thread.

I went 8-4. I'm curious how my predictions would play out. Because it's a very Sparty like season. We'd start off really hot, stumble a little, then lose our last two. I'm guessing how we do in a Bowl Game would determine how much off season good will we'd have.  But it'd definitely mean we'd have another season to deal with it.

Well, there is a limit of 25 surveys. I'm gonna need to find another place to use.

Link fail. More like survey fail. I'll update when I find something better.

I got 5-7 again, and I don't feel like I'm being a pessimist. Am I the only one who thinks we'll have trouble with ND, MSU, Purdue, and Illinois?

While I had each of those down as wins, that doesn't mean it will be cake.

ND has a lot of talent, but they are in the middle of a system change.  As we've seen, that can be tough at times.

MSU beat us in OT last year after Michigan showed up for about 8 minutes of the 4th quarter.

Purdue has me blinded by hatred and I simply cannot accept the possibility of a loss to Danny Hope.

Illinois goes to more of a pocket type QB, which eliminates one of the biggest problems M has had on D the last couple years (decades?)


August 5th, 2010 at 4:15 PM ^

It took Purdue a surprise onside kick recovery and a botched PAT to beat us last year; a hook-and-ladder play the year before that.

Why do you think they'll give us trouble?

I doubt we'll lose at home against Sparty, on the road against Danny Douchenozzle, and at home against the Juice-less, Benn-less, and Zook-ful Illini. I have us losing to ND, PSU, OSU, and Wisconsin for an 8-4 finish. Not sure if that makes me optimistic or pessimistic...


August 5th, 2010 at 5:11 PM ^

If we lose to MSU, Purdue, and OSU this year, I'll probably kill myself.

I had us going 10-1 somehow, only losing to Wisconsin. I don't actually think that. I just couldn't bring myself to push the "lose to OSU" button. I also had us winning all of the games we should, which we're bound to lose at least 1 of them. I'm also probably underestimating Iowa and PSU, but screw it..

If I see more wins than loses this year, I'll be happy.

You listed four teams you figure Michigan will have trouble with (ND, MSU, Purdue, and Illinois), and pick Michigan to go 5-7.  So if we lost three of those four, plus OSU, Wisconsin, PSU, and Iowa, we'd only beat UMass, Bowling Green, Indiana, UConn, and one of those four you named?

While I agree we could have trouble with each of those teams, it is obviously pessimistic to think we'd lose 3 of the 4.  Could it happen?  Sure.  But only a pessimist would pick it.
