The Big Enchilada.  What news and exciting ways will OSU give up touchdowns in this game?

Boy, you'd think Michigan should win this handily, something like 31-13.  I've never seen an Ohio State team this inept on defense.  If they played Oklahoma in a bowl game, the O/U would be well over 100.

I think Urbz has had it,he doesn't look dialed in.The HC needs to makes some adjustments and substitutions he just hit rewind.That fake punt when it was 31 pt tie we all said watch the fake.Canada/Maryland had nothing to lose,not sure how they didn't guard against that.I'd like to see Grinch get the full time DC enough of this co-bullshit.At Wash St his defenses improved noticably every season for the 3 yrs he was there.It is hard to pull talent to Pullman

I predict that the winner of this game will play Northwestern, in Indy. 








And lose.

throw out all the rankings and the stats. don't matter. having said that...

NO WAY that Michigan wins this game. Haven't won in Columbus since Drew Henson did it in what feels like a century ago.

Eh. That's a pretty big leap and a very bold prediction.
IF it's vs Ohio St: NW doesn't have the athletes to hit the big plays that Ohio State's defense loves to give up. And NW doesn't have the defense to hold the explosive Ohio State offense under 30. I think it would look a lot like the Michigan State vs. Ohio State game.

IF it's vs Michigan: I think that first QTR was a fluke for them. They hit a few plays early and got out to a 14-0 lead but after that they were pretty much completely dominated. If there were to be a rematch, I think Michigan would handle them pretty much from start to finish.

Both teams will be ready to go. 

Should go down to the wire, as is typically the case.

I don't know. I don't see it being close. I think either Michigan wins big or OSU wins big.
Excuse me if I have PTSD when it comes to this game. Been a rough 15 years.

1. Go big or go home.

2. Depends on which Harbaugh personality shows up.

Michigan's offense needs to play its best game. The OL needs to continue to run-block well so Higdon can have some big runs and also hold up in pass protection. The big pass plays need to called more and succeed a few times. The play-calling inside the 20 needs to be more pass-oriented, especially with the tight ends. I'd almost rather see more big pass plays from mid-field at risk of punting than getting inside the 20 only to settle for FGs like they did yesterday. If the offense plays well, they can score 40+ and win convincingly, but I'm not sure what to expect, especially depending on the weather. They're good at not committing turnovers, but that's a concern, to be sure.

Defensively, Michigan is usually dominant, and while I fully expect Ohio State to score at least 20, I think the defense can keep them under 30 points, considering Penn State, Michigan State, and Purdue did, and the rest of their opponents have mediocre-at-best defenses. My biggest concerns are QB draws and short passes in the middle of the field. Michigan has shut down most RBs pretty well, though Taylor had a few big runs and probably didn't get enough carries for Wisconsin, and Rutgers' RB had a few good ones, too. You can argue that Scott looked decent for Indiana yesterday, too..... Of course, opposing QBs have generally had bad - if not their worst - games of the season against Michigan, except for Ramsey yesterday, though Haskins is the best QB they'll have faced, of course, so that's somewhat concerning..... Any turnovers (especially defensive TDs) would be huge, of course.

Michigan's special teams are pretty good if Moody can hit longer FGs if necessary. Maryland scored on a return, but that's it. Michigan has one of the better return teams, as well.

Point being, I could see Michigan winning big (say 41-13), losing another close one because the offense stalls out inside the 20 (16-24) or something in between.

Early forecast is low 50s, chance of rain. I like the temp for the bucks, I think if weather was bad that’d be a big plus for UN.

If OSU continues its trend of 3 turnovers they have no shot. I think you gotta get to 30 points to win this game, because as good as Michigan’s defense is, I think OSU will score, but do they cough the ball up?

Michigan will score, because we’ll, everyone does on this defense. But I don’t see a Michigan team that would drop 50 points in a game like this. 

I think Haskins has got to be on point as do the WRs, and I wonder if dobbins has anything left in the tank after 37 carries. And no clue what’s up with Weber not playing. I thought McCall looked shifty though, I would have liked to see more of him this year.

Ultimately I think the OSU o line will get abused off and on, the UM D will force at least 2 turnovers and the OSU running game will be held under 100 yards putting to much pressure on Haskins to be perfect.

Michigan has been the better team all season and I think that continues, UM 34 OSU 24
