Ron Dayne's is on display at a Buffalo Wild Wings. That seems...oddly appropriate.

The BWW picked before the Gator Bowl this year, meaning they picked us over Nebraska.

How great would it be, though, if OSU won tonight and still got passed by Auburn (who then loses to FSU)?

In the early 1990s Ron Kramer spread Bennie Oosterbaan's ashes all over the UM campus, including some on the field of Michigan Stadium, at Yost (where he played basketball) and at Fischer Stadium.

He deserves a suspension simply for being dumb enough to do that in front of a national television office. Until the 1978 Gator Bowl, Woody Hayes had the good sense to punch opposing players and band members in the tunnel--away from the prying eyes of the media.

Yeah, I think they were rumored for the Notre Dame game.

I'm not a parent, and I'm not that bummed out by the loss. Thing is, I'm not sure why.
On the one hand, we were all half-expecting a blowout, yet there Michigan was with a chance to win the game in the final minute. And the offense came out of its shell for the first time since the Indiana game, unlike last year when it totally disappeared in the second half down in Columbus. So there was a lot to be positive about despite the loss.
But the more I think about it, the more I believe that the real answer is this: OSU has beaten us 11 of the last 13 years. I'm in my mid-20s, meaning that OSU has owned Michigan for half of my time on this earth, including my entire teens and all of my adult life so far. Losing to OSU is, sadly, normal. And this game being competitive was so much of an improvement over recent years that merely being competitive is its own form of victory. And that's incredibly sad.
I'm to the point where losing to OSU is the default outcome. So why would I get terribly upset about losing yet again?

As an MMB alumnus, thank you for defending the MMB. We need more folks like you on this site.
I hope your son had a wonderful experience!

Don't they have to take the top ranked non-AQ if either the Pac 12 or B1G champ is in the title game, provided they're in the top 14? Isn't that how TCU played in Pasadena a few years ago?

No way does the conference office want to jeopardize OSU's chances at a national title, rules, standards, and "values" be damned. It's the 2011 Sugar Bowl all over again.

|1 week 2 days ago||Yes. If they can go||
Yes. If they can go toe-to-toe with a top 5 team, they should be a top-5 team. And looking at the schedule, there's really no excuse for not winning 9 games at worst including all seven home games, since they don't play Nebraska, Iowa, or Wisconsin. The trick will be overcoming Hoke's road woes: ND, Rutgers, MSU, Northwestern, OSU are the road games.

Apart from the first two games, that is.
Man, that feels like years ago doesn't it?

I think if USC had won last night he might have gotten the job. But I think you're right, he'll likely remain on the staff.

I don't think Mullen is done at Mississippi State. He's 4-1 against Ole Miss and is about to take them to their 4th straight bowl game.
