    The morning before the MSU-UM game I had a feeling the score was gonna be 28-24...except I had MSU winning. Based on that experience, I'll predict:

    UM 31
    OSU 24

    We could see a Michigan-Oregon rematch in the rose bowl.

    Unless Dixon's knee injury is really severe, then he will probably recover by then and lead the Ducks over the Wolverines again....

    It would be interesting to see as a gage of how much UM has changed since that loss, especially if both teams are healthy by then.

    It was obviously that Henne was ineffective in the first half. I would have pulled him early. The guys shoulder has not healed and he could not throw it more than 15 yards without grimacing.

    Wonder why they didn't just try to run up the middle with Hart behind a blocker or just a draw play with the QB running up the middle? The Illini expoited it last week?? The Buckeyes defensive line was much more stronger than the Jake Long led Wolverine O line.

    Mallet in right before the end of the 3rd qtr...with the OSU up 14-3. If the Michigan D can hold on the next 2 possessions there is till time to get two TDs and pull this one out...buti don't have any faith that this will happen....

    Hart looks a little gimpy too.

    edit: Henne back in and almost connected on a long ball.

    Well, I was wrong! :MusicBigGrin:
    I guess I had too much faith in OSU's little brother. :pound:

    At least when MSU loses in overtime later today (as usual) I can at least take some solace in the fact that "big bro" lost too. :MusicBigGrin: Look at it this way...maybe now you'll get a lesser bowl and will lose much closer than if you got in the Rose bowl...

    OSU played good defense. I assume that Lloyd Carr retires. The players should all heal for the New Year's Day bowl game. Henne and Hart hopefully look good in the Outback or Capital One Bowl. Hopefully MSU gets a bowl game.....probably the Motor City Bowl in Detroit. They'll get a team that they can have a chance against.

    Even given their crappy conference record, State might get a better offer if they win today. Lookin good so far against PSU.

    Henne and Hart have been injured nearly the whole season and Carr squeezed 8 victories out of them. Today the OSU defense was just to tough and to fast for the Wolverines. Henne couldn't connect with anybody because of the sholder injury. Hart was hobbed too from the offset and the O line wasn't up to the task. Not sure what was up with manny dropping at least three passes though??


    Other than letting the Buckeye running back get lose for that long TD run, the defense did their job and held the OSU in the check. (last years score was 41-38, this year, Wolverines cannot even get 100 total yards, let alone the 3 points.)

    Carr indicated that he would discuss his future later. (Still one more bowl to go in about six weeks) :) If he leaves, the next coach needs to be hired by Jan 5th for recruiting purposes and he needs to recruit speed at the skilled positions from California, Texas and Florida.

    The thing is, speed would have been a total waste on offense today.

    It would have been an interesting game if it wasn't for that break out run by OSU. Missed tackles, dropped passes, and generally crapiness for UM.

    Great D by the Buckeyes however.

    Fairly good season for the Wolverines considering the injuries. I thought we might score more than three points though.

    Lloyd's winning percentage was 75% during his tenure. The program has a 75% winning percentage over the last 125 years.........That's the highest winning percent of all time for !A college football. I would have liked to have won more against Tressel, but we faired ok during Carr's tenure against Wisconsin, MSU, and Penn State. He'll leave since his existence is not totally about football. He's still young enough to enjoy the rest of his life. I for one thought he was a good coach over his tenure. Since 1968, when Bo Coached UM, the series is 20 games to 17 in favor of UM.......with two ties. An awesome rivalry.
