Yes, we're all pretty scared of Shoelace. What else scares you? (Photo by Leon Halip/Getty Images)
After a week of mindless hate against OUR MOST HATED RIVAL, we finally have actual football to worry about again, rather than just some sneak attacks from those vile B**l*rm*k*r partisans. This week we have good old
Meatchicken Michigan, led by the stupendous Denard Robinson. Tell us what you fear the most about the maize and blue. You'll note that two rather obvious choices -- Shoelace himself and the once-again absent Norm Parker -- are missing from the poll and that's for a few reasons. One, pretty much all of us are concerned about the magical Mr. Robinson and Norm's abence, so those options would almost certainly win, and where's the fun in a predictable race? Two, those are, like, your conscious, obvious fears, man... let's dig a little deeper this week.
