You could say the same thing about WVU... but, see.... you'd just be plain wrong then... :)

I don't see it. I think they're 8 games, tops. Oh-fer in Michigan and lose to the Bad-gers, too... I predict an upset by the Ninny Lions over the Gophers, but I'm unusally overoptimistic about PSU this season. Perhaps incorrectly so, but a prediction's just a prediction. Doesn't mean a thing.

So, I see Minny with seven wins. They could win nine, but not ten. The Gophers only won 10 last year because they could cushion their total with a soft non-conference schedule. AND you're counting the bowl game. I don't count the bowl game in last year's win totals, so they won nine last year...

Whatever. Glad to see in the months I was absent from here, you haven't lost your arrogence or ego, Dave. :rolleyes: :P :D

First off, I picked Minn to go 9-3 last year in the regular season and they did just that, to tute my own horn here. Secondly, Minnesota isn't legit. Any team who is up by some ungodly number to Michigan at home in the 4th and turns into choking cowards clearly isn't in the same class as Ohio State and Michigan on the football field. They are a team who gets cheap wins and soft schedules to pad their status ( a page out of the SEC handbook). This year, they do play AT Colorado State, AT Michigan, AT Michigan State, and AT Wisconsin. Win 3 of those 4 road games, and I will throw some respect their way. And I'm going to put a mandatory win at Ann Arbor in there. You wanna run with the big boys like Michigan, give them a L at their house like they did to you. I said it last year Purple, you HAVE TO beat Michigan or Ohio State or both to get respect in the Big Ten. It's as simple as that.

BTW...Athlon has Minnesota at 6-5 this year. Not exactly a stellar prediction.

I would hate to disappoint you, Purple. :)
