As we have little to look forward to other than parlor games, post your prediction for the OSU line. Also if anyone would be so kind to post, what was the OSU-UM line in 2008 and 2009? If not for those years I fear this will be the largest home dog UM has ever been in modern history. And potentially the largest dog, road or away, in modern history (until 2014's squad strolls into Columbus).
My prediction is the line will open at 15.5-17 (although I believe the actual score differential will be far more vast). I still have yet to wrap my mind around the possibility of UM being a 20 point home dog but I suppose it could be.
Assuming UM can somehow someway put up 13-17 pts on a "decent, not great" OSU D, even a 17 pt line is only a 30-34 OSU offensive outburst which seems "conservative" considering rivalry blood lust + Urban going for BCS title game (now a 3 team race). I had some faint home for the rush defense vs Hyde prior to Iowa game to keep the game sorta close in 1st half, but if Ross and or Morgan are out for the week, the spread might be covered by the halftime show.
EDIT: Found a Bleacher Report story showing OSU was favored by 19 in Columbus in 2008. The internets seem to have revealed the 2009 game in AA had a line of 12ish.
