blocked again

Dave Brandon joins Jalen Rose in blocking me on twitter.

I'm not exactly sure when he blocked me. Here are the tweets that I mentioned him in:

I will admit none of these are very positive towards Dave, I don't think they're block worthy. Maybe the "marketing pinheads" was too far?

January Prediction for M 2014 record

Having predicted M to lose in the conference championship game each of the last two years, I think it is time to step down the expectations.

Appalachian State - W
at Notre Dame -L
Miami (NTM) - W
Utah - W
Minnesota - W
at Rutgers - W
Penn State - W
at MSU - L
Indiana - W
at Northwestern - W
Maryland - W
at OSU - L
Cap One vs. LSU* - L

9-4 - Prove me wrong Michigan, please prove me wrong!

Accuracy check:
2012: Predicted 9-5; ended 8-5
2012: Predicted 10-4; ended 7-6

* I was a year off prediction M vs. Kansas State, so I'll try to double up on my LSU prediction

Sooners Surprise in Sugar

Oklahoma didn't worry about being a two touchdown underdog. They turned the table and beat defending National Champion Alabama by two touchdowns. Maybe Stoopes was right about the Big 12 being comparable to the SEC?

Of course the most important question, is "What is the soonest M can win the trophy?"

Here is Oklahoma's 2014 schedule:

8/30/2014Louisiana Tech
9/20/2014at Tulsa
9/27/2014at WVU
10/4/2014at TCU
10/11/2014vs. Texas
10/18/2014Kansas St
10/30/2014at Iowa St
11/15/2014at Texas Tech
11/29/2014Oklahoma St

As you can see they do not play Michigan, nor do any of their opponents. So we have to go down a level.

LaTech's schedule is not set, but their non-conference schedule includes NORTHWESTERN State (boo), Auburn and Louisiana Lafayette. Nothing likely there.
After Oklahoma, Tennessee faces only SEC teams and Chattanooga, still not looking good.
Tulsa's schedule is also not finalized. After Oklahoma their only non-conference game is North Texas.
Then we get into conference schedules. It looks like Michigan's best chance again is going to be in Bowl season.
