I am so sick of this defeatist attitude on these boards. If I have read one post openly lamenting how OSU is going to destroy us I've read 100. I understand this has been a disappointing season, but this is way over the top. I don't know if it's a defense mechanism or what. But personally, I find it gross.

Michigan will probably lose the game, sure. But it's not certain. OSU did not look dominant last week on defense. We haven't been that bad in the B1G so far: there was one blowout loss to MSU (a good team that is just better than us) on the road; a flukey loss on the road to Penn St. in a game we honestly should have won if our kicking had been anywhere close to normal; and a tough loss to a decent Nebraska team in a game that could have gone either way. Last year's game at OSU was very close, and these teams are not that different than they were then, in fact I could argue that we are playing better on defense now than we were heading into that game. And while OSU has won a lot of games the last two years, it's worth pointing out they haven't beaten a single team that was ranked in the top 15 when they played them.

Are we going to lose? Probably. But this is by no means assured, and to get blown out would definitely be very disappointing. I see no particular reason to expect that. And I see no value in constantly declaring that it's going to happen. This team is down but it needs the support of its fan base, it doesn't need this crap, just like it doesn't need fans booing at the FIRST HOME LOSS of the Hoke era on a weekend when many recruits are being hosted. I hope we can pick it up and be more positive, or at least more realistic, than the fatalist attitude that seems to prevail around here the last few weeks.

It's a good thing for me too because normally we have Thanksgiving for my wife's family on the Saturday on which the game falls, and every year the game is in Ann Arbor, I have to explain to them why I won't be there until 5 PM or so. Not being sport people, they seem to forget that I e-mail the schedule to everyone for a reason. Thanksgiving is going to be on Thanksgiving this year, so I don't have to be in the doghouse this year.
