    No worries ... I am a results man ... September 1st will answer the question ... sometimes I don't like the answer. WIN or STFU ... that's my theory!!!

    Yeah it should be a great game. I'm still mad about the NCAA screwing us over because that would have been a game between the 2 teams with the most wins. Guess not anymore, but just gotta deal with it.

    I was at the game in 1989 where Rocket Ismail ran two back for TDs ... just before the 2nd one, I told my buddy "I'd kick it to him, he ain't running two back"

    My oldest son always roots for the team playing against my team to annoy me but he's only 4. I'm hoping he'll grow out of this.

    Despite my best efforts he just doesn’t give a shit about football.

    The second oldest is much more of a sports nut.

    Any predictions on what we'll be ranked to open the season?

    Depends on the spring game outcome I think, but has to be between #18-#23 I'd think.

    They’re only losing 6 starters, 2 on defense. But our defense will be the best it’s been in the last five years (assuming the loss of Elko doesn’t kill us) and I’m not sure how good their O-line will be with the loss of their Center and left tackle. Playing them early will help, they will be a good team, but I expect a win.

    Word is their O line will be suspect. Their defense will be stout though.

    I’m just not feeling a pre-season 14 ranking for them.

    I think they played 5 ranked teams (I think MSU was ranked when they played them) last year. And went 1-4 against them. I don’t think harbaugh is a great coach (I don’t think Kelly is either) but I think our defense will be better than theirs. Home field will help, but I think we win by 10 points.

    I want to say the Irish will have a strong defense this year, but I'm a little hesitant after losing Elko. But I do think our defense will be good enough.

    Our offense will definitely be better than Michigan's. How about a 30-17 win?
