UM will hang with em for two quarters based almost entirely on emotion. 2nd half will get ugly. I see a 17 - 20 point margin of victory for "that team down south".

This game will be ugly. Maybe not MSU/Ohio ugly, but not good. It’s supposed to be 50+ degrees around me so I’ll have plenty of other things to do.

Not much reason to be optimistic other than it's at home.

ohio REALLY deserves for ALL of that shit to happen to them. With interest.

Of course it won't. Only fools expect karma.

I read a written version of Pep Hamilton's comments about M QBs yesterday. It's interesting to compare comments made by posters on the web about what Pep said to what he actually said.

I interpret Pep's comments as they were reported at mgoblog to indicate any of the three QBs in question could play. He did get a little testy about questions that kept trying to drill down to a clear answer; off-handedly, at least as I read them, he said Malzone was the back-up. Heh.

For the past 15 years, when a team averaged more yards per rush in The Game, it won The Game. Every time. No exceptions. The frequency with which the osu running game has not been just a little better than Michigan's in The Game, but substantially better.

How long is the contract that Fox has to show B10 games? Having to listen to Gus makes it all the more miserable. I’d rather go back to having to sit through Millen.

6 year deal on FOX, Millen is ok doing the games. Its just to bad Gus finally is calling the game and it has as much appeal as Hokes last game.

I don't have an opinion on Gus. Mainly because I mute most of the commentary for M football games regardless of which network is doing the broadcast. It's inane.

The #2 Fox team was brutally bad when I had to listen to them a couple of weeks ago too. Forget who was doing the PBP, but Lewis Tillman was the color guy.

Oh yeah that team was awful. Tim Brando was the PxP guy for that one

Brando's pretty much living on borrowed time before Holly Sonders gets enlightened about how much he's drooling over her.

Gus is good. Rather have him doing March Madness games, but college football isn’t a bad alternative.
It’s like Michael Bay movies. You can find them entertaining or trash. Billions at the box office for explosions.

O'Korn is starting. Ohio has no need for biased officials today. No reason to watch, unless you like viewing massacres.
