Last time Ohio came to Ann Arbor with a streak like the one they presently have (22-game streak then, of course), Bo Schembechler handled them. He had losses to Mizzou and Staee coming into the game.
Don't take me for an overly optimistic fool--just trying to generate a little excitement about next weekend.
Rivalry intangibles mean a lot of things can happen. Hope for Hoke.
Bear in mind that only ONE of our losses has been delivered by greater than one score, and that was by the team that obsesses over us more than any other team.
But next week we'll play a team where the obsession is mutual. It's not impossible.
Go Blue. Beat Ohio.
Edit: From Wolverine Devotee:
"Even Bacon agreed with me on twitter, you can throw the records out the window in this rivalry.
The underdog has played up to their competition a ton of times and sometimes have even pulled the upset.
Just to name a few from the last 30 years-
1987, 1988, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2011, 2012"
Honestly, right now, I have less hope for our fanbase than I do for our team. Take a break if you're really feeling this low from an underachieving season. Spend some time with family, or get ahead on work. But being as self-loathing as (or possibly more than) Sparty will not save this season.
