    I don't think those first amendment arguments work in here. It's not government run even though Rascoe reminds me of Mussolinni or Stalin sometimes...

    With realignment just around the corner...Here's my prediction.
    Compare this to what really happens.

    Division A - OSU, PSU, Wisconsin, Purdue, Indiana, Illinois

    Division B - Michigan, Nebraska, Iowa, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern

    The Michigan vs OSU game will continue to be played on the last week of the regular season...:)

    This was already released earlier today by Andy Katz of ESPN. Nice prediction, though....better than most of your predictions. :pound::pound::pound:

    Really...I didn't see that. This Andy Katz must be an intelligent person.

    Yea, right. Next thing you'll be saying is that you actually predicted that the USA would beat Iran in basketball today....

    Nah...I just take on the tough predictions.

    Like the Oakland Raiders beating the Tennessee Titans in week 1...

    After analyzing the Big Ten schedule this season, I think that OSU should change their playing surface to CARDBOARD. My guess is that this season, they will look better on PAPER than they'll actually play. Look for 3-4 losses.

    Still though, they should finish ahead of Michigan.

    I think Rivals has OSU first.

    Michigan was 5th and MSU was 6th.

    Nice game today by Denard Robinson....wonder if he can do the same in South Bend next weekend? Almost 200 yards passing and almost 200 yards rushing..those are Heisman numbers if he can do it for a whole season....

    Robinson had a very nice game, but you guys were talking Heisman for Tate Forcier too after a few games against inferior competition last year. We all see how that turned out. :pound: Come on now Dre, I love you like a brother, but our running back, Bell, had a "Heisman numbers game" too yesterday, but it was only ONE game against a MAC team. Yeah, we lost to Central last year, I know, but they were the cream of the MAC conference and we sucked.

    Sheesh. I betcha if U of M beats Notre Dame next week the U of M boards will be crying that they should be ranked in the top ten.

    Congrats to U of M and Robinson. Nice game. But you U of M folk really need to hold off on all the Heisman talk I am hearing. :stirthepot: :MusicBigGrin: :stirthepot:

    Ahhh, Dre did say "for a whole season".
    Nice tune up game. Aren't you glad they put one like that before ND? ND will question Mr.Robinsons manhood. 24-22 UoM, is possible and we're on our way.

    UM needs to show their colors in the Big Ten. That is where the real competition is this year. ND is just a fart in the bathtub.

    What are you talking about Nems. Mich is NDs first big game. USC is their BIG game like OU and UoM.
    ND must go down and they must go down with extreme prejudice.
    Do you want the Golden Domers to come out of the woodwork rejoiceing in a Mich win? ESPN would sell that for hours.
    Interesting how NDs fate has kind of followed UoM.

    Michigan is potentially on the way back to greatness. I just feel that ND is not the team to measure our greatness by. Of course beating them is important at this point, but only as important as beating UConn a few days ago.
    I won't be sure we're back til we go through the Big Ten.

    It's kinda like Judy Garland singing about "Michigan". A nice song, but you don't remember her for this.

    Beat Ohio State. Then we will talk...Beating Connecticut at home just means U of M potentially doesn't suck anymore.

    They opened 4-0 last season and faded. All everyone remembers is the fade....because of that it is do or die every game for the Wolves until they get back to playing Michigan ball.

    UConn was supposedly formidable opponent that some folks thought would steal one in the big house, but the offense, though one dimensional with Robinson looked better than it did all last season and so did the defense.

    We won't know what this team is really about until game 6

    This Denard Robinson cat must be a bad dude man. He doesn't tie his shoelaces. That's right, he has some velcro that keeps them in place. Well fitting shoes are key to cutting and balance but dude is like, F it.
    Wait until he figures it out... he could run for 300 yds!

    U of M 28

    Notre Lame: 21
