I hope we get to beat them while they're wearing these... some debate over whether it's real but multiple posters at the MSU board claim to have confirmed.

|3 years 33 weeks ago||Any chance Ross is recruiting for us?||
I don't believe any public statement at this point. Any chance Ross is recruiting for Mich.? He buys us a stadium but then tries to take JH away? Doesn't make sense. Nor does the fact that he's flying to see JH, and not the other way around. Other interesting details from the ESPN article: A Dolphins spokesperson claimed to be unaware of any meeting, and JH showed no interest in Dolphins job until the other day (after presumably thinking about his options all season). Could Ross be saying, come to UM and here's what I'll do for you?

Even the best teams don't win every play. So if you let your opponent hang around, you're inviting a loss, even if you're a "better" team in some abstract, ultimately meaningless sense. All they have to do is have one play go their way -- an interception, a big run, a kick return. I'm sure someone has done a statistical analysis of this somewhere, but I'd be surprised if there are a lot of undefeated teams with tiny average margins of victory. The only way to minimize the x-factor -- the risk of a "fluke" loss -- is to build a commanding lead and keep it. A team that wants to be dominant can only afford a few close games a season.

From 11/23/2003 N.Y. Times sports section (from our last win over OSU):
[Chris Perry] was not posturing when he left the game for a few plays in the first half with the injuries. Perry said the Buckeyes were trying to harm him by twisting and pulling him during tackles. "Watch the tape," Perry said. "They do a little extra."
