    Excited for the traditional B1G matchup between UM and anOSU, the Apple Cup looks interesting, and USC will get assraped by another Kelly this week. Lol @ @Irishman for thinking USC is "dangerous."

    The only danger is that Helton will be given an extension until 2045.

    Grambling are playing for their season this weekend. If they lose to Southern, the coaching staff need to be fired and be consigned to working in fried chicken shacks for the rest of their laifus. What a trashu season for Grambling foobaw. Also, Beat Garden City.

    This is still Notre Dame/USC. Both of these teams have wrecked undefeated seasons for each other more than any other of their opponents. I don't care, it's still the Irish and I've seen them blow it against much worse teams.

    I know it's a rivalry and all, but your apprehension is totally unfounded. If they couldn't defeat a 2-8 team playing with a transfer QB and allowed a transfer RB who rushed for nearly 300 yards, they sure as heck aren't going to beat an undefeated team that has looked good in most of their wins.

    Maybe, mayyyybe USC keeps it close for a quarter, or a half, but once any emotion gets spent, their overwhelming incompetence will win out and the Irish will pull away. And that's the best case scenario.

    My prediction is that it will more closely resemble the Alabama game at the start of 2016. Except that Max Browne was better prepared than JT Daniels.

    Touchdown! No flags.



    Thank you, Touchdown Tim, for making my last Michigan home game as a student one to remember.

    Michigan is favored in Columbus. That's the first time that's happened since 2004. That's fucking crazy.

    I love this matchup for Michigan's offense. OSU's linebackers are awful, and Harbaugh's offense is best when messing with linebackers. I expect a bunch of runs with gaping holes when linebackers put themselves in the wrong gap, and some TEs running free on playaction. I wouldn't be surprised if Michigan had 5 or more plays over 20 yards. OSU has been awful at stopping big plays all year.

    On the other side, I liked the matchup a lot more before the Indiana game. Indiana's offense is a low-rent version of Ohio State's passing offense, plus a more mobile QB. Indiana was able to move the ball pretty well, especially in the first half. The good thing is that Haskins is a statue in the pocket and get rattled pretty easily when there's pressure. Michigan's defense is one of the best in the country at pressuring QBs on passing downs, so if you get Ohio State in a lot of 2nd and 3rd in a longs, it could be a long game for them. They need to cover and tackle OSU's slot receivers well on slants and crossing routes.

    Feel as good about it as I have since that 2011 game. Still don't really expect to win. Feels like a game where Michigan's small weaknesses on defense can get exposed, and the questionable health of Winovich might be a big program.

    I'm more worried about the game being in CBUS than anything to be honest. I think they will be motivated and are playing better and will win the game though. 24-17 something like that. 50 and rain is the forecast for Saturday.

    Houston will travel to Memphis on Friday to face the Tigers. The winner will earn the privilege of getting their doors blown off by UCF in the AAC CCG.
