12/02/2018 - 1:55pm The common factor with the…

The common factor with the Iowa loss last year and Purdue loss this year, they both were the first road loss after a big, emotional comeback victory over Penn State.

Last year, after the big comeback against PSU, the very next week was at Iowa City. This year, after the big PSU win, OSU was home the next 2 weeks and was lethargic against both Indiana & Minnesota, but was able to survive. They didn't pay for their lethargy until they went on the road and it was Purdue's "national championship game" (a la The Rutger approach to its Michigan game a couple years ago).

Purdue and Iowa were both ready to slay the dragon on their home turf whereas OSU was still sleepwalking after a huge PSU win both years.

"...sorry, Lenny, I can't talk now. My damn wiener kids are listening..."

11/24/2018 - 10:26pm Yes, I can acknowledge that…

Yes, I can acknowledge that your streak of misery has lasted for longer than my streak of misery did. But what is rather new to your misery is the intense pain of losing when it crushed any aspirations of further success.

What you're feeling today is what I felt in 1993, '95, '96, & '97. The intensity of those losses was worse than losing when Michigan was simply better. Even though Michigan has already lost several times this century, it wasn't until 2016 & '18 that you've felt the same kind of pain I felt in that 5-year stretch. And it really sucked. It sucks for you too.

I'll make the decision long before game-time...

He's not NOT playing. EVER! (i.e., he's playing.)

My dad had a place in Atlanta, MI for nearly 20 years. Been up there may times. Is that northern enough for you? But haven't had reason to go back to northern MI since he sold the place.

11/24/2018 - 7:57am Nah. Would probably be neat…

Nah. Would probably be neat to see...at least once. But unlike USC/UCLA when they both wear home jerseys and split the tickets 50/50, this rivalry is about going into enemy territory. Wear the road jerseys and make it feel like "it's us against the world."

11/23/2018 - 8:22pm 11W predicts M win = …

11W predicts M win = "pussies"

If 11W predicted an OSU win = naive, arrogant homers?

How about: 11W sees the writing on the wall. (The days of Belshezzar's kingdom have been numbered.)

11/23/2018 - 8:13pm Yes, there's something very…

Yes, there's something very special about seeing those 4 colors on the same field at the same time!

11/23/2018 - 7:33pm There's something truly…

There's something truly special about seeing those 4 colors on the same field at the same time.

11/23/2018 - 7:24pm Umm...nope.

But I do recall…

Umm...nope.

But I do recall that after the 1973 tie, OSU was voted to go to the Rose Bowl. Does that make up for it?

11/23/2018 - 7:23pm Thanks for being willing to…

Thanks for being willing to think of me. But we'll get at it again next November 30, hopefully avoiding a 2-game losing streak.

I'm good at math, my son.

If I inserted x for every m it would have been unreadable. But you have seen my daughter's xath workbook. ;-)  I recall it xade you laugh.

11/23/2018 - 7:15pm Yea, man. Greene, I'm not …

Yea, man. Greene, I'm not "first" worthy. What ya been doin'?

11/23/2018 - 6:32pm I didn't forget that, I just…

I didn't forget that, I just didn't mention it.

Gee suddenly became a villain for saying that, and it made people hate Cooper even more.

11/23/2018 - 6:31pm Good for you for having…

Good for you for having Harbaugh. On September 2nd, a majority of this community was done with him.

Would love to hang out. Just awaiting the invite. ;-)

11/23/2018 - 6:26pm No, my cooler is filled. So…

No, my cooler is filled. So I had to use my refrigerator.

11/22/2018 - 9:36pm We all know about the…

We all know about the Martell package and expect to see it at some point. I'm really curious to see if the first wrench is that OSU opens the game with a scripted Martell series, followed up by Haskins. That would give Don Brown extra things to have to spend his time and mental energies responding to. Anything to slow down that evil wizard! 

11/22/2018 - 9:23pm Yea, I thought 17-1=16 was…

Yea, I thought 17-1=16 was obvious enough that it could be accompanied by something silly yet not come off snotty. I guess I'm snottier than I thought.

11/22/2018 - 9:21pm You guys ready for some Big…

You guys ready for some Big XII football?!?!?

11/22/2018 - 9:19pm Denver, this didn't make me…

Denver, this didn't make me feel any better either. Michigan prevents the YAC and/or stifles OSU's attempts to run in the interior, and OSU will have a difficult time consistently moving the chains.

11/22/2018 - 7:42pm Great work! I love the…

Great work! I love the history of the rivalry and seeing how each game helps tell a small part of the story of the overarching narrative.

11/15/2018 - 6:52pm Yea, Harbaugh was fortunate…

Yea, Harbaugh was fortunate that his "Zach Smith"-type idiot willingly left the staff to go to Maryland.

11/11/2018 - 11:18pm Neither Pitt nor Iowa State…

Neither Pitt nor Iowa State increases the B1G footprint. If they expand again, it will be to enter markets previously untapped.

11/11/2018 - 11:03pm Hey, that's me!!!

Hey, that's me!!!

11/09/2018 - 11:23pm How many carries until…

How many carries until Higdon cracks 100 yards?

I'll set the over/under at 12...

11/09/2018 - 11:15pm Michigan could play without…

Michigan could play without a safety, and that shouldn't make any difference. (Heck maybe Michigan will come out with a 5-4-2 defense, if they choose to play with 11. How many DBs will they really need? Load the box with 9 guys and make Sitkowski throw HAHAHAHAHA!!!!)

Harbaugh could do without an extra TE on offense...3 TEs should be plenty. ;-)

11/09/2018 - 11:09pm I don't know...if The rutger…

I don't know...if The rutger played 11 on 8...I think I might take the points.

11/09/2018 - 11:07pm There is barely anything to…

There is barely anything to read! Brian sure mailed it in with this one.

Not that I blame him. How many times could he repeat the same description of carnage?

Maybe he could have talked more about cats. I don't think he hit his word quota.

11/09/2018 - 11:01pm Are you guys talking about…

Are you guys talking about an injury to Shea Patterson?

Yea, sure wouldn't want to induce a jinx that made Shea Patterson get injured. Especially not an injury that lasts at least 15 days. Wouldn't want you guys to feel guilty about a Shea Patterson injury at all. So let's not even mention a Shea Patterson injury. Because that might make a Shea Patterson injury happen.

No Shea Patterson injury here. You can look somewhere else...where there is no such thing as a Shea Patterson injury.

11/09/2018 - 10:56pm That's a projected score of…

That's a projected score of about 43-4. You're right, it's amazing to see Vegas anticipate that few points for the losing team. Even in projected blowouts, the losing team is generally expected 10+ points because, you know...anything can happen. A score here, a score there...voila: the sucky team managed 10 points. But I guess anything can't happen. Only certain things can happen. Those certain things will not include the cannon being fired. s/ At least Delaney is going to get the big market TV ratings from NYC. Because, you know, NYC (just like the whole northeast) is known for it's love of college football. /s

There we go...will The rutger outscore the game's TV share in NYC?

11/08/2018 - 11:51pm The rutger.

...it's a brand…

The rutger.

...it's a brand.

Don't try to understand it. Just submit to its power.

11/06/2018 - 8:35pm I do suspect they've been…

I do suspect they've been holding back a Martell package for Michigan.

11/05/2018 - 4:47pm Of course! Would you want to…

Of course! Would you want to re-use my cooler? There's not enough Clorox in the B1G footprint to clean those things.

And because they're recycled....portions of them could be in the next cooler you purchase!

11/05/2018 - 4:42pm You're right. Every fan base…

You're right. Every fan base has that. I read enough here that indicates a perception that the entire OSU fan base is like that but the Michigan fan base is above it.

11/05/2018 - 4:23pm I like Michigan's resume …

I like Michigan's resume (even with a loss) better than ND's (even undefeated) and would rank Michigan above ND....if not for the head-to-head.

If Michigan's 1 loss was against somebody else, I would rank them above ND. Michigan's victories have been more impressive than ND's. But how could ND be behind Michigan when ND is both undefeated AND has the head-to-head? That would be unfathomable. (I guess, since I'm thinking of it, it must be fathomable.) Otherwise, I put Michigan 3 and ND 4. But I think you're right that #4 is the ceiling for Michigan if the other 3 don't lose.

Try to bring your receipts to Columbus, boys.

Come on down! I suspect Michigan's team hotel will surprisingly not have running water.

11/04/2018 - 4:57pm Hmm...so you're saying both…

Hmm...so you're saying both fan bases are a lot more common than you would like to admit?

11/04/2018 - 4:52pm That's fair.

That's fair.

11/04/2018 - 4:45pm I'll take The rutger...

I'll take The rutger...

...if you give me double the points.

11/03/2018 - 11:49pm "Someone" is right. Keeping…

"Someone" is right. Keeping them would be a good idea.

...unlike half of you on September 2nd who wanted Harbaugh gone: "He's not getting it done." "He doesn't have his team prepared." "He can't win a big game." "Fire Harbaugh!"

A message to those of you (and there were MANY of you) who had these kinds of takes after 1 game of the season: ...realize that your knee-jerk reactionism makes you look not smart. Instead, you're merely obnoxious "BAW OMG" BPONE guy with no perspective. Let the season play out and don't define your coach by the team's worst performance of the season. Now you love him!!! Congrats on being a tool.

Genuine congrats to Michigan for being a legitimate CFP team. I'm jealous.

I was at last year's MGoTailgate party. I was the guy wearing red.

11/03/2018 - 11:25pm This was an amazing 3-game…

This was an amazing 3-game run by Michigan!

Early in the year, the discussion was how many of these 3 games Michigan might lose. Instead, they steamroll all 3.

Sure, Wisconsin isn't what we thought they were, but what Michigan did to them was impressive. Sparty could muster nothing. Now PSU was made to look pathetic.

Very impressive. Certainly CFP-worthy performances.

Michigan is clearly the better team.

Let's get it on!

 

EDIT: Double post. I suppose it's because the MGoServer just wanted to see it again.

Michigan is clearly the better team.

Let's get it on!

11/03/2018 - 11:11pm Yes! Great to see Ace!

Yes! Great to see Ace!

11/03/2018 - 11:10pm This, of course, was the 3…

This, of course, was the 3-game core of Michigan's schedule that would define their season. You know...the part which people debated whether Michigan would lose 1, 2 or 3 of these games.

Michigan came through the meat of their schedule with flying colors. Amazing performances! Certainly performances worthy of a CFP participant. Perhaps the quality of performances found in a champion.

Congrats, Michigan, on an amazing 3-game run!

A Martell package would be useful in the red zone...but doesn't that tip playcalling? Kind of like Hoke's use of Gardner & Denard in 2012.

11/01/2018 - 4:42pm So, maybe OSU will pass for…

So, maybe OSU will pass for a lot of yards on Nov. 24 between the 20s...but then get stuck with FG attempts.

They have several 30-40 yard TD passes....that appears to be OSU's "red zone".

I too was going to dress up as Urban Meyer...
