And Washington State is probably going to beat Washington this year. In a snow storm. Or torrential rain. Just like old times. Catch em napping.

I mean Michigan DOES have both Don Brown and Greg Mattison. That alone is rigoddamnedridiculous. Even Greg Schiano can't compete with rigoddamneddiculous.
|1 hour 37 min ago||I mean, Phil Steele mentioned||
I mean, Phil Steele mentioned but Ohio State returns a very talented team. They are just very young. I think they have a starting 22 with the least number of starts in the entire Big10. They have the advantage with game at home vs Michigan. Biggest key for Michigan over next five games is this: stay healthy!

Tom Herman's stock is still high right now. In another four weeks, probably not.
Thing is, Houston football is not performing to expectations.
They lost to Navy by 6, and then decisively to SMU on the road.
They have to play UCF (4-3) this week followed by Louisville (6-1) and @ Memphis (5-2).
I remember after their Oklahoma win that a lot of people were crapping on Houston Cougars football for their "weak" schedule.
Well, their schedule is a lot of things, but "weak" ain't one of them.

Maybe take a fire extinguisher with you.
Okay, have fun fellas!

|23 hours 26 min ago||Urban Meyer has only lost twice in Ohio Stadium||
2014 vs. Virginia Tech
2015 vs. MSU
He's 1-0 vs. Harbaugh.
Harbaugh and Michigan will have to bring their A-game to Columbus. I think they will do so and beat Ohio State.
Biggest concern at this stage of the season, being unbeaten, has to be injuries.
Thus far Michigan has lost starting LT Newsome and starting CB Clark, but hasn't been affected by that.
If Michigan can remain healthy and not lose players to targeting penalties, I think they kick the shit out of Ohio State in Columbus.
|23 hours 31 min ago||It's different this time||
Refs, Spartan Stadium, trash tornadoes, weather, unnecessary roughness, clockwork, etc.
All of it is horseshit.
Against all of this crap, MSU and Michigan football players still have to line up and play the game.
I do not doubt that Dantonio will leverage anger and disrespect to get his guys high as a kite emotionally for this one game. But it still requires the MSU OL to protect the quarterback and open holes for LJ Scott against a Michigan defense that has been lights out. It still requires MSU to cover the deep ball, which they've been unable to stop all year.
The common opponent between MSU and Michigan is Wisconsin. Both played the Badgers at home.
Michigan held Wisconsin to 159 total yards and 7 points and caused 3 turnovers.
MSU allowed Wisconsin 317 yards and 30 pts and committed 3 turnovers themselves.
MSU is not good at football.
But I agree that Michigan's schedule is back-weighted, and they must take care of business. I'm confident that Jim Harbaugh and Don Brown, as they are, Michigan will do precisely that.
In fact, I think a shutout is very likely.

Michigan did not face the same PSU team that Ohio St did. PSUs LBs have returned and their OL while not good played above par all Sat night. Michigan though is a better team now in October than Sept. Solid.
|1 day 22 hours ago||Yeah, well there's always next week you guyz:||
Ohio State 6-1 vs Northwestern 4-3
Miami (YTM) 4-3 @ Notre Dame 2-5
Michigan 7-0 @ MSU 2-5
|1 day 22 hours ago||Hopefully, should the 2016 Michigan Wolverines win on Saturday||
we will all see them as a team calmly walk = not run - over to the other side to secure the Paul Bunyan Tropy that is rightfully theirs.
Regardless of the score.
|1 day 23 hours ago||Harbaugh > Carr||
Carr was a great motivator and great recruiter. And Michigan won a lot of great games with him at the helm.
But Brian's comment on the podcast was correct. Under Carr, unlike Moeller, it felt like the purpose of Michigan's offense was to punt the football and win some obscure moral victory of field position and time of possession.
Harbaugh brings a remorselessness and mercilessness that is the opposite of Carr's "win with respect" model
Without Harbaugh, 55-21 and "What's your deal?" never happens. Fake punts while up 34-0 don't happen. Tearing refs a new one despite holding a four touchdown lead because he's right and they effed up the call, simply does not happen.
Michigan football is finally living by the sword again.
It's strange territory for some of us who witnessed decades of Michigan football when times were different. For example, when Bo was here.
It's almost as if that forgotten dark power of anger, bitterness and resentfulness from November 1973 has returned. Schembechler spent the remainder of the middle to late 70s and 1980s reminding Big 10 opponents and all of their AD's that you just don't. You simply don't do that and expect no negative consequences.
Except nobody has even wronged Harbaugh or Harbaugh's Wolverines. If they ever did, I wonder what would happen then.
|2 days 18 min ago||Wisconsin vs Nebraska in Madison||
Normally, this would be a good game, and I too would expect Wisconsin to "run away" with it eventually.
But notice that the Badgers are slowly decimating themselves with injuries. Nebraska is not facing the same Wisconsin team that Michigan, Ohio St. and Iowa played:
Note all of the injuries from Oct 23 game. Jack Cichy loss is going to be huge. And TJ Watt is questionable this coming Saturday vs. Huskers.

And Louisville still on the menu. Well, it's not like it hasn't been a fun team to watch. But to be a fan must suck.

|3 days 1 hour ago||You have to remember Harbaugh||
You have to remember Harbaugh broke his arm vs State in 1984, losing 7-19. 1985 Harbaugh-led Michigan stomp State 31-0 in EL, and destroyed them 27-6 in 1986. Harbaugh wants to stomp these guys decisively, more than any of you.

The German government is still paying reparations to Israel. And funding the hunting down of geriatric Nazis across the world, and making denial of the holocaust a crime (thought crime) punishable by prison time. Still not enough. Germany has done more than Penn State has done to atone, and does not overtly or covertly celebrate the "glory days of Stahlhelm" as Penn State fans and administration have done, over and over.

Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if they dedicated their season to the victims instead. Somehow never occurred to them.

No. you have to play football. Block, tackle, pass protect and run and execute perfection on special teams. Ohio state didn't dominate in the trenches and they paid the price. Ohio State will be up for Michigan. No doubt. But they have to play football.
