Some Black and Gold Friday morning MOJO.

This just doesn't feel "Over". It just doesn't feel like the Football Gods will have this travesty. Not this time. There is a wierd cloud of hesitant excitement that is almost tangible on this morning. There is a sense of optimism and despite our efforts to fight it....it's winning. The colors black and gold spark a smile on this Friday morning. When the Buffaloes from Boulder take the field and do what is most necessary in Northern California this evening....it won't be a favor per say. It will be the service of justice. There was something about Coach McIntyre and those surprisingly potent Buffaloes on that September afternoon a few months ago. There will be something about them again this Friday evening. Kickoff is at 9pm ET. If you're reading this still...you will definitely be watching. Get excited folks. #GoBuffs

If you'd been watching Michigan football as long as I have, you'd know that the Football Gods have a deep and abiding contempt for the Wolverines. They're assholes, those Football Gods—their biggest goal is fucking with us by leading us repeatedly to the gates of the Promised Land, and then when we reach for the handle, turning on the electricity.

There's enough heartbreak to make you decide not to flip on the TV until next September.

We have been screwed by FG's not counting despite going over the uprights...98-yard Rose Bowl fields...winds dying down in time to lose on a FG at the gun...phantom clipping call in a different Rose Bowl...a blatant PI not getting called as a #1 team, at home, with only a few seconds on the clock...Rocket Left...Spartan Bob...

I don't know if it's a good thing or not, but at least the bad stuff over the past 10 years have mostly been self-inflicted (The Horror, RichRod, Hoke).  It's kind of nice to get back to having hearts broken by outside influences.

I want to believe things will break Michigans way, but I just have a feeling they won't. I hope I'm wrong but I think we will always wonder what could have been with this team.

If Washington loses, we're in. If Clemson loses, we're in. They want us in so badly. They just need a justifiable reason. Everyone around the country knows this. Just own it. They want Harbaugh, Saban, and Meyer to battle it out in the playoffs. It's a business no matter what anyone tells you.

That argument goes to the question of who is playing better right now, you know, at the time when they are determining up matchups for the bowls. Every game does matter - Oklahoma wouldn't be out of consideration  for the CFP if they hadn't lost 2 of their first 3 games. In the case before us the 2 teams discussed both have 2 losses so consideration of who is the "hotter" team right now seems relevant when comparing them before they play each other.

Has been kicked in the teeth, over and over, for a long time now. We need a break as Michigan fans, we need something good to go our way.

Whether it be the miracle from MSU, losing to OSU again and again, something good needs to break. 

Colorado's our horse. I don't see Clemson losing to Virginia Tech.

I don't think either upset happens, unfortunately. My prediction is Clemson struggles but beats VaTech, Washington beats Colorado by 10+, Wisconsin wins B1G and because the top 4 will remain unchanged the committee will drop Michigan behind B1G winner. I think they do that to ensure going forward the idea is that conference championships matter. Now if Colorado and/or VaTech wins, I think they slide Michigan into the playoff.

I have a hard time seeing Colorado getting blown out by Washington. This isn't a situation where one has so much more talent than the other and Colorado has not been blown out by anyone except Michigan. USC, the one common opponent that is considered good this year, beat Colorado by 4 and Washington by 13. Washington was home, and Colorado was on the road. I get that Washington is good, but I think people are starting to base things on hype with this one. If Washington wins and it's a big if, it will most likely be around the spread. It has hovered around a touchdown all week. My personal opinion is that Colorado is probably the better team overall but that Washington has the best QB. It's going to be close and don't be surprised if Colorado sends us to the playoff.

Been saying this all week...  And listening to what (and how) Kirby Holcutt say what he said, Michigan is in if Washington or Clemson lose.  The only way a CG winner jumps us is if that team wins in a fucking HUGE way.  And I don't think any of the four are good enough to do that...

Then we STUN Bama with a stiff d and eke out 13 points on offense aided by exceptional special teams.

Then we POUND the Buckeyes by two scores in the National Championship game.

Bo smiles down and rests easy.
