    In Harbaugh's 7 years, Michigan is 2-12 against teams that score 30+ points. The two wins were 3OT at Rutgers last year, and 2OT his first year at Indiana.

    When I say UM's passing offense isn't good enough, a lot of it is based around this. UM's game plan is going to be about ball control and trying to protect the defense. If it works to where it can hold OSU around 30 points, it has a chance. If OSU has another laser show, I don't think UM will realize it until it's basically already over, and I don't think UM's passing game has enough experience in that kind of game to avoid the kinds of mistakes that ultimately end you (see MSU in the 4th quarter).

    So anyway CJ Stroud is the Heisman frontrunner and Day is sick but you never know. Xainboard posters sandbag like no one can beat us. So annoying, they keep saying weve won 20 of the last 23 but you never know in this game. theyre really confident on their private board I just know it.
    Go Bucks. Do you watch football Xelissa? lol

    Taking the easy read has worked against us all year. Not enough to win in most cases but enough to frustrate us and put points up

    Gonna be cold on Saturday. I need to figure out my footwear. Probably too cold for sneakers, but my boots are not in good shape. May need to sneak out somewhere tomorrow for new boots and an M winter hat after the crowds die down.

    Looks like it will be right around freezing at kickoff, 33 and cloudy, then a 50% chance of snow at 3:00.

    This is probably the coldest one since 2007.

    They claim Henne got a novacaine injection that accidentally went into a nerve and he couldn't feel his arm.

    Yes, I was in charge of buying tickets that year for myself and two friends who were Michigan grads. I bought tickets in the student section without realizing that. My friends didn’t tell me until we got into the stadium.

    It was actually fun though. The students gave me shit, but it was good natured. It definitely helped that the second half rain/cold sapped the entire life out of the crowd.

    Things that have to happen for Michigan to win tomorrow:

    Defense
    1. Cannot allow big TDs on long runs or catch/run scenarios. Michigan can't win if Henderson has a huge day unless Day goes full idiot and doesn't feed him trying to pad Stroud's stats.

    2. Hutchinson and Dax Hill have to be the two best players on the field when OSU has the ball. Hutchinson is possible. Hill's been very hit or miss. He needs to be everywhere if UM is going to slow them down.

    Offense
    1. Have to run the ball for 200+.

    2. OL has to hold up in pass protection to give McNamara a chance.

    I think all of these things are possible. I don't think any are likely. And all of them happening at once against this team is less likely.

    I think 200 yards rushing is pretty unlikely. I also don't think it needs to happen for Michigan to win.

    Michigan's best chance of winning is locating Bryson Shaw and throwing it to the receiver in the part of the field he is responsible for covering

    IMO, the only real path for UM to win this game that doesn't involve "hope OSU doesn't play well" is to control the game offensively on the ground by limiting possessions + scoring with big chunks, which makes life easier for a QB and receivers who aren't used to be the focal point of an offense.

    Sure, if OSU isn't clicking offensively, there are other paths to winning. But UM is going to try to play ball control/complementary football because it's what Harbaugh believes in. If that doesn't work, UM is going to have a very hard time on both sides.

    The shot was the weekend before against Wisconsin. His arm was toast and he shouldn't have been playing, but we weren't winning either way. Ohio State could have had way more and just chose to win 14-3.

    Our DE are pretty hit and miss. Got zero pressure against Purdue and they threw for 400. MSU threw it almost 40 times and we only had 2 sacks.
    We’ve been a ton better stopping the run.
    Gonna come down to how each DL plays. UM must get pressure on Stroud.

    Good to see UM writers are writing about how individual officials for tomorrow are unfit to ref the game tomorrow to rile up the fanbase. Completely normal behavior.

    To be fair to the writers, Harbaugh bitched about that same guy in 2016. They’re just following his completely normal, definitely not excuse making, totally not related to being run for the last decade-plus behavior

    There are enough refs to go around that certain refs shouldn’t ref certain games after controversial events. Between the close 1st down call, the missing PI call, the phantom one and the Weber slap on the ass, that ref shouldn’t be there tomorrow. 2016 is history, but that same guy on the field tomorrow is ridiculous.

    I just don't think any of those are objectively bad calls. They were close plays at the end of a tight game that Michigan fans think were bad and Ohio State fans don't.

    They all went your way. It was a ridiculous chain of events. We got lucky against PSU in the early 2000s, bad/tight calls happen, but when everything goes one way and refs are seen being friendly with the team getting calls, I’d understand fans being pissed about those same refs reffing the same game in the future.

    Lol michigan mad, I guess? You’d be having the same reaction if the shoe was on the other foot.
