What if OSU loses to PSU, then will the OSU-Mich game matter?
With regard to the B1GCG, not unless PSU loses at least two of their other three remaining games because in that case PSU would have H2H wins over both the Buckeyes and the Wolverines so they would win a tie with either or both of those teams.  

It would matter to bowl position for Michigan and Ohio State, of course and it could plausibly also matter to Ohio State's potential at-large CFP chances but it would be unlikely to have any impact on who goes to the B1GCG.

(1) I know I am starting this WAY too early, (2) that might annoy some people, (3) sorry.  
1. True

2. True
3. I am not so sure you are. 

I will start reading the thread the last week of the season but I may be more engrossed with Iowa-Nebraska.

Is it too early to declare the TTUN sucks? :)

To be fair, compared to OSU, every other team sucks this year.  Based on the eye test alone I'm not sure there's a team that can stay within 2 TDs of the Bucks when they're firing on all cylinders.

I think 2-3 top teams would compete with OSU, but I've had them at #1 for weeks now.

Come Noon on Nov 30, TTUN will play much better than they have all year; they usually do. As an OSU fan, I NEVER take that game for granted. I don't care if TTUN had a zero in the Win column, I would still say they are coming into The Game ready to compete. This is NOT to disrespect any other team on their schedule, but this game brings out the best in them.

It is never to early or too late for that.  

That said, I agree that they will be ready to play when this game happens.

This thread is way too early considering the game isn't until Feb 4.  I guess I like the Bucks as long as Wesson can stay out of foul trouble.

The only thing happening that day that I know of is National Letter of Intent day. ;)

The root problem from Michigan's perspective last year was the defense's inability to pressure Haskins.  His feet were clean all day.  The  Buckeye fast receivers will get open eventually given all that time.  Haskin's passes were good but ones a good high school QB could make if given that much time and lack of pressure.  On the other hand Michigan's QB was running for his life all day.  Even given that Michigan put 39 points on the Buckeyes in Columbus which should be enough to win.  The problem was not Michigan's offense.

Correct. The problem last year was Ohio State's defense giving up 39 to the crappy Michigan offense. But then again, that same defense gave up 51 to Maryland, 31 to Oregon St, 49 to Purdue and 26 to Indiana. So far this year it appears that problem has been corrected. :)

#2 Ohio State (11-0, 8-0) at #13 Michigan 9-2, 6-2) Game Week
« Reply #27 on: November 24, 2019, 08:38:15 AM »
It's finally rivalry week, and The Game is both exciting and...not that exciting?  OSU is as good as they've ever been, and Michigan, after some early season struggles, is looking strong.  That figures for a great game that's tough to predict, especially with Michigan being at home.

Still, the game is irrelevant to the B1G championship, as OSU has already clinched.  It also doesn't have a ton of impact on the playoffs - OSU could lose and still be in good shape.  How should one feel about that?

In any event, should be a great game.  Michigan has feasted on a couple banged up teams and they have their offense humming.  Penn State was able to get a lot of pressure on Fields and that impacted how OSU called plays - they ran over 60 times.  Michigan can get to Fields, and that chess match will be interesting to watch.  On the other side, Michigan will need to run the ball - dropping back a bunch of times plays right into OSU's strengths.  Can Michigan run like they did against ND, or will they run like they did against MSU and Indiana?  One note - OSU did struggle a bit with PSU running a lot of zone reads with their backup QB.  Will Michigan try to pick up on that?
