Michigan's starting QB is out (not sure if he's out for the season or not). Got hurt against Iowa and was out against Indiana. The offense doesn't look the same without him.

When OSU plays real Big Ten teams (i.e. not Rutgers or Maryland) who know how to play them, they look more normal. Prior to squeaking by MSU, they did beat both Nebraska (without their starting qb for most of the game) and a terrible MD by a score of 62-3. Even if those teams aren't good, I wouldn't call that unimpressive.

Rutgers is going to be an easy punching bag in the Big Ten for a long time.


That road win against Oklahoma continues to make Ohio State look better and better.

I wasn't that impressed with Michigan with Speight! Take Peppers out, and Michigan's an average team!

And OU going into snowy, rowdy West Virginia and smacking the Mountaineers, later in the season, might I add, cancels that OSU win at OU......!

Is WVU really that good?


How do you cancel a head to head- especially a decisive head to head not some flukey win?


The problem I'm seeing with Oklahoma (same problem in years prior to this) they can't play D and the teams in their conference can't play D. They had their chance outside of the conference (which is weak this year) and They went 0-2 against a great Big Ten team and a very good conference USA team. If they make the playoff and make it 0-3 can they be banned for a year?

Nebraska is IMO is a pretender and I thought that prior to OSU game.


It was 24-3 when Armstrong went down late in the second. He wasn't having much success. Would the game be 62-3...No.

I'm tired of the Peppers for Heisman talk- the guy had a punt return against a scrub team. He's 5 yards on direct snaps and he makes a few tackles game. Not even close to the year Charles Woodson had when he won the Heisman.


UM is an Untested team. Harbaugh is proud guy and he's getting the fans stirred up all year that this is the revival year. They have played one "decent" team on the road outside of their state the WHOLE year. And they lost the game.

Michigan did beat a good Colorado team and also Wisconsin.

Okay some good wins. Wisconsin game was a great performance. I guess I'm constantly comparing them to OSU and I think they've had an easier road.


The Colorado game they were down 28-24 and Colorado's starting QB went down for the game. They played Penn State when Penn St had the entire defense out.


They've had three road games all year Rutgers, MSU, Iowa.

I think it's crazy some teams, Michigan and Auburn for example, are only playing 4 road games this season. It should be a rule that teams have to play at least 5 roads games every season.

I think Ohio State beats Michigan this year. Who goes to the title game if Ohio State beats Michigan? Would it be Penn State?
