    Ohio State and Nebraska at home. Iowa and Northwestern on the road. I could see them winning three of those. But looking at their resume this year I wouldn't be at all surprised if they lost 2 or 3 either.

    If they can recover from last week, I give them a 50-50 chance of going 2-2. It's obvious they won't beat OSU. The question is will it be one of those classic struggles of a 17-12 game or a blow out loss worse than the one that MSU handed them?

    All records are thrown out the window when the Wolverines play the Buckeyes.

    That's true of most rivalries, to an extent, but when there is a discrepancy quite as large as the one that there currently appears to be between these two teams, I doubt Michigan has much of a shot of winning. Maybe they will keep it closer than the line for the game.

    I will give you Michigan and 10 points?

    Ok, just in case I lose, I'm going to start making my list right now so when the time comes, in a month, to pay up, I will only have about 8 more things to think of. :photo:

    Why did you give a guy points who thinks the game is a push? That's JD negotiating.

    Perhaps Drath secretly wants to say 10 nice things about Nemo.

    OSU could probably take care of Akron and post more than 6 points against MSU.

    Why are we so bad??? How hard can it be to restore the Michigan program? It's not like they have Penn State's burden to deal with.

    Because he will need a lot more than ten points.

    anyhow, I kind of want to lose so I can say..."nice"... things about the clown fish.

    The losses are stacking up. I wonder if there has ever been a case before where a Michigan team has rushed for negative yards two weeks in a row. They had minus 21 vs. Nebraska and minus 48 against State. This team has really lost its mojo. They could lose the next three.

    Looked almost like a duplicate of last weeks' offensive line being backed down and M failing to move the ball on the ground. (7 sacks)

    Looks like there is a need for a some offensive coaches, bigger offensive lineman and maybe an offensive play caller.

    The TO mid way through the 4th should have been converted to a TD, but M would have had trouble scoring that even if the fumble had occurred on the 10 yard line.

    This looks to be a losing conference season for the Wolverines who sit at 2-3 with 3 games to go and two of those vs Northwestern and OSU...

    Quite the pillow fight. Both teams sucked.

    I think the Hoke experiment is over after OSU

    I don't think so. Bo once went 6-6...he then finished the next season ranked in the top 5.
