Well, it would be even weirder to project about things that HAVE happened, don’t you agree?
Seriously, what is the problem some people here have with predicting the outcome of future games, or the outcome of a season? That’s what happens on sites like this. That’s one of the main things we do. No, of course, nobody KNOWS what’s going to happen, but when has that ever been the point? We predict, we forecast, we speculate about what’s likely and what’s not, and we disagree, because it’s fun, and it’s human nature. If it bothers you to read predictions that aren’t as rosy as what you’d like, sorry. Some people prefer realism over homerism to the point of silliness. Sure, when I was 10 years old, I expected Michigan to win every time, in every sport. But I learned a long time ago that’s not how the world works.
