I like Navarre, but facts are facts. He threw four picks against a 6-4 OSU team that was not only led by a first time starter, but hadn't won at Michigan Stadium since 1987. At 12:00 pm on that fateful day, Jim Tressell was nothing more than a small college coach who seemed to be in way over his head. By 3:30 pm that day, he was a Michigan slaying god that delivered on his guarantee. Michigan has never recovered from that psychological shift in the series and Navarre's role in that shift cannot be discounted.

This is the exact thing every other fanbase makes fun of us for. The other team never beats us or has a good game plan, we just beat ourselves. You realize OSU still has to capitalize on all those turnovers right? Maybe Tressel was just a really good coach? He won a freaking national title the next year, and with a QB he didn't recruit?! How is that possible?!

I will be rooting my heart out for a win, but the chances of a win are perhaps the lowest they have been in 20 years. Seriously. If Peters isn't 100% healthy, and if he doesn't play the game of his life, we will lose. If John O'Korn steps on the field for any reason other than to stretch or warm up a player, we are F*CKED!

we all want a win.

and man, would it be sweet justice if we somehow pulled it off.

but honestly, i'd be happy w/ a good game. the one thing we can hope for is some kind of crazy good o-line performance that lets us run and run and run (and shorten the game) and the defense playing even better than usual. if it all falls into place, maybe a 20-14 win or something like that. 

OSU ain't unbeatable, but when they get rolling they are tough.

Very good point. OSU will never drop an Iowa-type performance when they play Michigan. We are gonna have to play out of our minds and flat out do things that we haven't seen all year. From a matchup standpoint, Michigan should lose this game by at least 10 points and if O'Korn starts then probably more. I'm as hopeful as anyone they can pull an upset, but some crazy stuff is gonna have to happen.

Up your reading comprehension - I referred to a closely contested game with a chance of winning at the end -- what more do you and the OP want JH to provide?? OSU is perenially a top 5 team and has lost 6 games in the last 5 years (2 in BIG play). We are playing our 3rd string quarterback.

Welcome to reality -- it's not always awesome.
