Ho There! I have come from far away and have just discovered this new land. It seems by the posts that I have read that this land has been inhabited for a long time. However, I do believe that the precedent set by Christopher Columbus does apply; therefore my minions and I will plant my flag here and pronounce my discovery across all of the blogosphere (which I have also discovered is in fact round). The fruits of this land seem plentiful; the rumor is that because of a political situation out west in which you didn’t send your best representatives, Black Hearts are in good supply this week but Gold Pants seem to be running a little low. I have great news for you though, there is a town back east in which men in Scarlet and Grey sell Gold Pants at a very reasonable rate!
Now that we established my discovery in which I will get all of the credit and will certainly have a day named after me, I would like to discuss with you a topic in which the powers that be might not find appealing but that me and my fanaticism finds fascinating, and that is predictions of a team that haven’t played a single game yet and are sure to be wildly wrong. While we are still in football season’s infancy, the excruciating pain that I felt Saturday combined with over reaction that I have to every game made me pose this question to myself. Can Hawkeye hoopyball have twice as many wins as the football team?
This question can measure the hype that you might have for the basketball program in Franimals second year or maybe the complete lack of faith that you have in Ferentz. Lets pretend that the football team wins 8 games this year, do you or I have faith that Gatens, Cartwright and co. (the ones who haven’t transferred yet) can win at least 16 games? I would like to wait at least one more week to find out how good or not so good the football team is before I answer, but I would like to read your comments because if I have learned anything in my years of discovering blogs its this: blogs and readers comments are like George Washington, they all have false teeth but they never tell a lie.
