No, Cornelius Buttcheeks, I didn't attribute any causal relationship whatsoever. Personally, I am attributing Michigan's loss to the fact that at the end of 40 minutes, Ohio has more points than we did. Cause=outscored. Result=lost. That's it. Attribution.
Now, Cornelius (may I call you Cornelius?); there is just this. You won't catch me trashtalking anybody and saying, "Beat Ohio," when all the wind has just been sucked out of that joke, with a loss to 13-seed... Ohio. Because, as a sentient being with a brain, I know that our rivals will only be thinking, "You outta be able to, like, really beat Ohio, before you start talking trash with Ohio State."
