I'm just so, so tired, you guys. Not physically -- today's my day off, actually -- in the sense that I have no desire to write or think about Northwestern football for anything besides the three hours wherein I am obligated to watch them every week.
Does this make me a bad fan? Perhaps. It certainly makes me a bad blogger, but, I will continue to fulfill my barest of responsibilities by doing these posts.
Let's predict Northwestern vs. Michigan State, you guys.
I don't think it will be a shutout. Sparty wins, 17-6.
I've predicted 'Cats wins every week. But watching last week's debacle in the drizzle has broken me. I'd love to predict a win, but against this hellacious Sparty defense, I'm having a hard time seeing it. Nevertheless, Budzien is still a gaddamned boss. 14-9, Sparty. Le sigh.
We finally put it together and win comfortably, setting up a loss to Illinois next week.
Northwestern 31, Michigan State 21
I've been predicting a lot of close wins for Northwestern. I've been right about the close part, but, well, obviously very wrong about the result.
I have no rational thoughts about this game, because this team has exhausted them.
Michigan State, 13, Northwestern, 10
