I believe if we play to win instead of playing not to lose the entire game, we will come out with the victory.This includes the play calling and the attitude on the field. if O'korn gets the nod, he needs to run the offense confident in his abilities to do so.

GO BLUE beat Tosu!

Ohio State vs. Michigan is the best thing sports has ever given us, and it's going to give us even more on Saturday. New heroes, new goats, new hits to the head on third downs that keep drives alive, new poses -- either the Heisman or the Byesman

I had the same observation regarding O'Korn's scrambles Satruday... 

when he scrambles, he will sometimes turn his back to the defense in an effort to reverse field and avoid a sack

Speight has done a tremendous job avoiding pressure using a simple side step. Worst-case he goes down at contact vs. giving up an additional 5 yards doing circles.

The Wolverines blocked two punts. No, they didn't return either of them, but they have been fantastic this season at blocking punts. They haven't been great at blocking them backwards, however, but I've pretty much just guaranteed that they will do it against Ohio State by typing this sentence.

I get the feeling that we might see a lot of things - on both sides - that we haven't seen all year, but then it has always been that sort of game for the most part, just one of the things that makes it the best rivalry in my own opinion anyway.

it was a trap week for both Michigan and OSU, considering OSU lost to Sparty last year, not sure about it being a trap week for OSU but the writer does a nice job.  The shout out for the "Rutgers rivalry" pretty darn funny.  Thanks mgolund.

I think fits.  "You can't be afraid to win."   We need to embrace winning on Saturday against OSU as though we are entitled to it and deserving of it, but not that it's a given, or that it's predetermined.  Play hard, play smart.  Leave it all on the field.

Great read. John O'Korn celebrates his birthday today. He's in practice preparing for his biggest game of his life. Asking him to get up to game speed in one week is asking a lot. Wishing him a happy birthday week leading into a rivalry win. Monumental for Coach Harbaugh. Like to see Peppers or McDoom break a sweep. Smith truck a buckeye! Taco, Glasgow, Hurst, Wormley wreak havoc on OSU offense line. Each player has to play lights out. This is a much more physical Michigan team in recent years. Get to Barrett and cause a turnover which doesn't often happen. With so much NFL talent on this Michigan roster they all as a team need to execute. Make last year's loss fuel this Senior team. If not now when. Go Blue.
