I have no idea where Urbz has been keeping McCall - and for what reason.He adds shiftiness and speed.Perhaps he changes things up and Tate gets some snaps

Bugeaters and Cornhuskers: 
Years ago University of Nebraska football players were called the Bugeaters, after the state-wide nickname which came from Nebraska's numerous bull bats (caprimulgus europaeus), called bugeaters because they fed on bugs. The name was also apt because of the "poverty-stricken appearance of many parts of the state."
In 1900 a sports correspondent began calling the team "the Cornhuskers," and by 1907 the name was accepted. Charles S. 'Cy' Sherman, Lincoln sports editor, was credited with having conceived the name, and in 1933 the University Athletic Board presented him with a gold football, properly inscribed.

That's not true the Nebraskans get all drunked up at tailgates.Then they start picking Dragon Flies,Caddy Dids,Locusts,moths,skeeter swarms and small birds off the grills of their trucks.Then proceed on their Big 8 Buffet,and later head home to Iowa where no one saw the salacious act

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 UM
I think Michigan is the team wanting good weather. I know OSU has the better pass offense, and that this is a more weather-sensitive phase but rain and wind are also randomizers.  And Michigan wants as low variance as possible. No weird stuff. Just pass the time straight up and play for "may the best team win." Obviously we can't already know who's the better team. But this may be the first or second time this decade where Michigan could spend Game week feeling reasonably confident it's them.

You are being kind and respectful- which is appreciated. But.....
Michigan is superior this year. They have the best defense my eyes have seen this season. NFL guys at all three levels with a great coach and a great scheme. 
They have an excellent offense now. They move the ball, they have balance, they can pound the ball, they can go deep, and they have a tough qb who is truly duel threat, and makes very few mistakes.  And, a hungry team.
This is not a vintage OSU team.  They have some moments, but have not come close to putting it all together.
The rivalry might keep them in it for a while, but unless they magically find a solution to their defensive lapses ( which are consistent) I see a win for Michigan, and probably comfortable.
I also feel like they can compete with any of the teams that would be in the CFP, if they get by NW.
Don’t get me wrong-I still think OSU has a punchers chance. But there is no doubt who is the better team this year.  
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.

I disagree.  I'm with @Honestbuckeye on this one.  
It is really a pretty simple explanation.  Even if Ohio State wins THE GAME, when I do Power Rankings next week, I'll still have Michigan at #1.  Common opponents (last week's Power Ranking):
  • #4 MSU:  tOSU won on the road by 20, M won on the road by 14:  Favors Ohio State.  
  • #5 PSU:  M won at home by 35, tOSU won on the road by 1.  Strongly favors Michigan.  
  • #9 UNL:  M won at home by 46, tOSU won at home by 5.  Strongly favors Michigan.  
  • #10 UMD:  M won at home by 21, tOSU won in OT on the road.  Strongly favors Michigan.  
  • #12 IU:  tOSU won at home by 23, M won at home by 11.  Favors Ohio State.  
  • #14 RU:  tOSU won at home by 49, M won on the road by 35.  Favors Ohio State.  

It might seem close because three favor Ohio State and three favor Michigan but it isn't because the three that favor Ohio State are close.  The three that favor Michigan are NOT remotely close.  On top of that, PU and UW are roughly equivalent and against those teams M won by 25 at home while tOSU lost by 29 on the road.
