Since we cannot seem to beat our arch rival OSU on any consistent basis over the last 20 years of "modern day football" (4/20 including only 3/10 on our home field), is it time to finally break with "the unbreakable tradition" and shake up the divisions and schedules and have Michigan move to the West?
1) This would add more needed strength and balance to the West Division.
2) Gasp... we scratch playing OSU as the last regular season game of the year.
If Michigan wins the West division we still end up playing perennial East powerhouse OSU in the Big 10 Championship game (likely this happens 8-9 times out of 10). This would also keep us from playing them "back to back", in the last regular season game and Big 10 Championship game.
10 years ago I would have said no way to this idea, but after the last 10 maybe it is worth some consideration?
FWIW, I'm 50 and grew up with Bo's Michigan since I was nine in 1977. Forever Go Blue.
